Are There Any More DSLRs Coming in 2018?

By Canon Rumors | March 22, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Are there any more DSLRs coming in 2018?

We’re getting this question a lot, as a lot of people would love to see new EOS 7D and EOS 5DS series cameras coming to market.

Unfortunately, we don’t have even a hint of another DSLR coming in 2018. Not even a follow-up to the EOS 80D.

This may change over the coming months as we approach Photokina in September, but the current roadmap that we have doesn’t show another camera of significance coming. All we know for sure camera wise, is that there will be one G series PowerShot announced in 2018.

If this changes, we’ll obviously let you know.

It looks like the upcoming DJI Phantom 5 will have interchangeable lenses. This could be a game changer for consumer drones.

The lens in the image above is a 50mm, it would be likely DJI would announce a few prime lenses with the Phantom 5.

We expect to see both the DJI Mavic Pro II and DJI Phantom 5 to be announced in the next couple of months.

We have confirmed that the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II will be announced in April. We have not confirmed if the Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM has moved up to April from the original Photokina announcement we were previously told about.

We also think there is a good chance that another 70-200mm lens will be coming for Photokina in September.

More to come…

A New EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III Still a Possibility in 2018? [CR1]

We reported a couple of months ago that a new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III was coming, and then we scaled that back to just a new EF 70-200mm was coming as we couldn’t confirm the speed of the lens. Last week it was confirmed from outside sources that an EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II was indeed on the horizon.

After all of that, we still believe that a new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III is still a possibility in 2018. We’ve again received a few mentions that such a lens is currently in testing and that it is scheduled to be announced in 2018.

We haven’t confirmed this yet, but we hope to do so soon.
