We get asked a fair bit about the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R and whether or not we can expect replacements any time soon. We’re told that we won’t be seeing a replacement for either camera in 2017, but that there is obviously plans for another high megapixel DSLR.
We do think these cameras will likely be replaced by a single model in the second half of 2018.
Canon has shown us a 250mp CMOS sensor as well as a 120mp CMOS sensor DSLR, with a variation of the latter being more likely to end up in a consumer DSLR. We have no information as to what the megapixel count would be for an EOS 5DS Mark II, but it will likely be a significant jump from the current 50.6mp.
More to come…
