Canon EOS-1D X Mark III and Pro EOS-R cameras might be announced some time in Q1, 2020


Canon EOS-1D X Mark III camera


My readers know me as The Wildlife Ho-tographer. I have been using Canon gear for over 30 years. Currently, I am finishing up a road trip of the UK. You can follow my travels on FacebookTwitter and Instagram, see my equipment bag and works on MichaelDanielHo.com

Earlier this year, I wrote a post about Canon announcing the EOS-1D X Mark III and pro version of the EOS-R cameras some time in early 2020, to coincide with the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.

There is an increasing chance this will indeed happen, perhaps with Canon releasing the two cameras simultaneously. I expect a development announcement of the pro version of the EOS-R camera some time in Q4, 2019. Perhaps you have noticed Canon has been readying the release of high end, zoom lenses in the not too distant future. This can dovetail into the release of the pro EOS-R model.

If the new mirrorless camera comes with the functions and features of a pro DSLR as I have laid out in my previous post, I may be interested in acquiring one but I am still not convinced by the RF mount and will use the EF adapter to continue using my extensive EF lens inventory. Keep checking back for the latest information as I get them.
