Last month, Chinese company KIPON announced the first line of third-party lenses for Canon EOS R and Nikon Z cameras. ELEGANT, a line-up of five prime lenses for both Nikon and Canon, is now available for ordering in case you want to treat your full-frame mirrorless camera with a new lens.

Published by Nokishita, the images show a body that seems significantly smaller than the existing Canon EOS R, suggesting that it won’t be the super high-resolution pro body that many have been expecting. The specs, too, also seems to suggest that this is the lower end model that was rumoured back in November.
So far, most of the lenses announced or expected for the Nikon Z and Canon RF mount systems have been quite pricey. Meike, a company famous for making low budget camera grips for DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, sees things a little differently, though. The company has now announced that their 50mm f/1.7 manual focus lens is coming for Nikon Z and Canon RF mount cameras.
Canon has stated that their new full-frame mirrorless line will sit alongside their existing systems in their product lineup. That an APS-C format mirrorless in the EOS R is essentially not possible, and that EOS M will continue to live on and see development.
True to their word, a new patent has just surfaced for a potential 10mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens design. The short backfocus distance suggests that it is for a mirrorless camera with an APS-C projection size. Given that it’s APS-C, it won’t be for the EOS R, but for the EOS M line.
Given Canon’s previous commitment to pursuing DSLRs alongside their new full-frame EOS R mirrorless line, this proves to be quite interesting if true. Canon Rumors says they’ve been told that Canon has scrapped plans for at least one new DSLR in favour of a mirrorless alternative. Whether or not it’s true is another matter, but it would be a smart move.
Although the Canon EOS R has received some criticism since its initial announcement, especially from the “Pro” users, Japan’s not listening. They’re going to buy it anyway. And they’re going go buy it to the tune of 22% full-frame mirrorless market share in only a month.
This instant boom in sales, combined with the Nikon Z7 release has seen Sony’s market share drop from 99.5% in July down to 67% as of October. BCN Retail has released their latest full-frame mirrorless sales report, including a breakdown of full-frame mirrorless sales between April and October 2018.
Canon EOS R was launched two months ago, and so far we’ve learned a lot about it and seen a couple of reviews. But there are still some features that you may not know about. And in this video, ZY Productions brings you five things that the Canon EOS R hides among its settings. Did you know about them?
According to a patent unearthed by Japanese blog Hi Low Note, Canon appears to be working on a new IBIS system. Great news for those who were annoyed by the distinct lack of any kind of stabilisation in the new Canon EOS R Mirrorless camera. There has been statements about why Canon didn’t include IBIS, but it was never ruled out as a possibility in future models.
Interestingly, though, this patent doesn’t actually show a mirrorless camera, but a DSLR.
They sure don’t waste any time over at Magic Lantern HQ. A1ex at ML sent over a couple of firmware files over to Andrew Reid at EOS HD to test out on his new Canon EOS R camera. While neither file currently adds any functionality to the EOS R, one of them does prove that Magic Lantern commands will be at least possible on Canon’s new mirrorless.
It looks like Panasonic isn’t the only company not giving up on their previous range of mirrorless cameras despite bringing a new one out. Despite the recent EOS R announcement, Canon Rumors reports that Canon is planning to release two new EOS M mirrorless cameras next year. And, no, I doubt any of them will be full frame.
