Several rumours are coming down the grapevine about future Canon EOS R camera releases. In a nutshell, you’d have done well to follow the advice of various insiders to not buy into the first generation – unless you had play money lying around. So what’s coming?
Well, first big feature, in-body image stabilisation (IBIS). According to Canonrumors, the next Canon EOS R will be entry level, and the next EOS R body will have IBIS. While other sources have combined these two pieces of information differently, I would say this means the next body will be an entry level body with IBIS – 5 axis image stabilisation is what they’re claiming, to be precise.
The rough roadmap seems to be for this to be coming later in the first half of 2019, while a 75 megapixel EOS R camera will follow in the second half. Apparently, the 5DS and 5DS R will not see a direct successor.
An accompanying rumour says that Canon will release four to five RF mount lenses on the way to that high res camera.
