Mirrorless related announcement set for Feb 14th.
Apparently, Canon wants to wish you a happy valentine's day, with a major announcement associated with their mirrorless cameras. Right now we don't know if it's the EOS R firmware, lenses, or the entry-level EOS RF camera that Canon says is coming next.
There are some sources that suggest that the next camera coming out is the high-resolution model, even though Canon has stated pretty clearly that the entry-level model is coming next.
We also know that Canon is coming out with a F2.8 trinity of lenses for the EOS RF mount this year, as they have stated that in the past. The trinity would be the 16-35,24-70 and 70-200. All of which we have found patents for the various lenses.
We're not sure about the high resolutino camera coming out next. Granted, there's nothing really stopping Canon from putting a 62MP or so DPAF sensor into an EOS R camera, and calling it good - however, we don't know if DIGIC 8 has the performance necessary to drive such a sensor at reasonable frames per second. 62MP would be a 24MP APS-C sensor scaled up to full frame. Since Canon has had 24MP DPAF APS-C sensors with good dynamic range for a while now, it's certainly doable.
If the release date is a little more than 2 weeks away we would expect credible leaks to start appearing soon.
