Just one day after hearing that the Canon EOS R7 could be announced in June or July, new report The Japanese site claims that the announcement could come on May 24th.
This is exciting news for Canon fans who have been eagerly waiting for camera manufacturers to expand their RF mount body with more options. And ‘option’ is the word that works here, as the same report claims that the Canon EOS R10, along with two RF-S lenses, could also be announced at the same time.
Reliable leaker separate report canon rumors They also claim a May 24 release date for the camera and lens pair, listing some possible specs for the EOS R10.
If what the Canon rumors revealed are true, the EOS R10 will likely be the cheaper of the two, potentially featuring a 24.2MP APS-C sensor (as opposed to the EOS R7’s rumored 32.5MP resolution), with a mechanical shutter of 15fps and an electronic shutter of 23fps. Maximum burst speed of 15fps/30fps for R7. Another gift that might be cheaper is the rumor that there will be only one UHS-II speed SD card slot.
The lenses that come with the new body are the RF-S 18-45mm IS and RF-S 18-150mm IS, with both cameras likely coming in kits with one or both lenses.
Analysis: Are you saying goodbye to the EOS M line?
When it comes to Canon’s mirrorless camera system, there are currently six R-series bodies (all now full-frame), while the M-series has only three.
There were rumors of the EOS M5 Mark II in 2019 when Canon released the EOS M6 Mark II, but the former never materialized. and now there guess The fact that the camera manufacturer has discontinued the latter (still listed on the Canon website and retailers in several markets) is adding fuel to the fiery theory that Canon is finally discontinuing the EOS M line.
Given the popularity of the EOS R cameras, I wouldn’t be too surprised if Canon were to retire the M-series. If the EOS R7 and R10 cameras inherit the amazingly accurate autofocus system found on Canon’s full framer and you can believe the leaked specs, then none of the M cameras will match the performance of the upcoming APS-C RF. – Mount body.
The appeal of the M camera was its price point. Affordable prices for lovers. If the RF-mounted APS-C camera is reasonably priced, Canon could see a massive upgrade that both existing M-series users and new fans out-of-brand. The EOS M50 Mark II wasn’t a huge leap from the first-gen model, and the EOS M200 is a bit disappointing considering that both have their own abilities, but neither one has much for home use. However, the EOS M6 II is the flagship of the M-series and has long been one of our picks for the best compact cameras and best travel cameras.
The continuing shortage of parts may also be why Canon prioritizes the EOS R system.
Whatever the company’s current strategy, the future of the M-series is yet to be determined, but it’s clear that Canon is hedging its bets on RF mounts.
