Canon’s Big Announcements Likely Coming Soon
Time to get excited. New Canon cameras and lenses coming soon.
Canon rumor is Report that Canon will soon announce two new cameras and two new lenses. These will include: EOS R8 full-frame mirrorless camera, EOS R50 APS-C mirrorless camera, RF 24-50mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S 55-210mm f/5 lens -7.1 IS STM lens.
Although there is little information on the specifications at the moment, it is rumored that the EOS R8 will cost $1,499 for the body alone or $1,699 when paired with the RF 24-50mm f/4.5-6.3 lens. This potentially positions the EOS R8 as an alternative to the EOS RP.
On the other hand, the EOS R50 will likely cost as little as $679 for the body or $1,029 when combined with the RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM. It’s also worth noting that both of these lenses feature direct or near-direct analogue lenses in the EF-M mount, which is another indication that the EOS M series may now be defunct, perhaps. nothing surprising. Still, it’s nice to see Canon focusing on filling the more affordable range of the lineup.
