Unreleased Canon Gear Leakes By Certification Authority (EOS 80D and EOS 5Ds replacements?)

Nokishita posted a new list of camera codes used in certification authorities.Note that both DS126751 and DS126761 are either DSLRs or full frame mirrorless cameras. One might be the replacement for the EOS 5Ds(R) or the rumored high resolution EOS R model. It’s suggested that both models have a full frame sensor, either in a DSLR or a MILC. However, DS126761 seems to refer to a more entry level oriented camera and thus may well point to the Canon EOS 80D or Rebel SL2 replacements (maybe something got lost in translation?). Both are expected to be announced in the first half of 2019. P2355 refers to a PowerShot camera and might be the PowerShot G7X Mark III. No signs of the EOS 7D Mark III here.
