What To Expect From Canon In 2018 and Beyond




I am back from my wildlife photography shoot in Botswana. It was quite an exciting tour and the water level in the Chobe River and Okavango Delta are high but not at their maximum height. You can follow my travels on Facebook and Twitter, see my equipment bag and works on MichaelDanielHo.com

Now that Canon has announced two new bread-and-butter lenses, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III and EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II, what can we expect from Canon in the next year or so in terms of new cameras and lenses?

New Camera Bodies :

Hopefully the long awaited professional full frame mirrorless camera and the EOS-7D Mark III cameras will be announced some time in 2019. A prosumer mirrorless camera and one DSLR body may be announced ahead of Photokina in September 2018 in Germany. A few PowerShot models will also be announced before year end.
