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.
I still have a fresh memory of the days when Samsung was claiming they would become the number one company in the system mirrorless camera world. Well it didn’t end well for them. I hope the following Nikon statement will not bring them bad luck too. In an interview released at Dpreview Nikon said:
FR reader Chris pre-ordered the Viltrox 85mm F1.8 autofocus lens for Fujifilm at eBay here. Now he has been contacted by the retailer, who told him that there are issues with the lens, and hence the shipping, which was originally expected for October, will delay.
Now we know what impact the new Canon and Nikon Full Frame cameras had in Japan. BCNrankingy published the Full Frame mirrorless sales data for the month of October (for Japan only). With the introduction of the new EOS-R and Z7 cameras the Sony FF mirrorless share dropped from 99,5% (0,5% is Leica) down to 67%. Canon owns 22% and Nikon 10%.
