Canon develops 8K EOS R

Canon EOS R 24-105mm F4

Imaging Resource yesterday published an interesting and far reaching interview with Yoshiyuki Mizoguchi, a high-ranking official with Canon Inc. Mr Mizoguchi is one of Canon’s top product planners and chiefly responsible for the company’s camera offerings. As such he’s the right one to talk to about all things EOS R.

Key takeaways:

  • Sales of EOS R and the RF lenses were in line with expectations; especially the 50mm F1.2 found lots of friends
  • Customer reactions to the three available EF to RF adapters were very positive
  • Canon developed the EOS R system for the next 30 years. However, DSLRs with EF/EF-S mount and the mirrorless EOS M system will continue to play a role if users want it
  • Video will play a huge role in the EOS R system; an 8K-recording EOS R is already on the roadmap
  • Mr Mizoguchi confirmed that there’s considerable interest in a higher resolution EOS R which may also feature a EOS 1D Mark II class auto focus system but didn’t get into more details
