The Canon tilt-shift lenses for the RF mount have been rumored for a long time, now the latest rumors suggest that Canon is set to announce two new tilt-shift lenses with auto-focus for the RF mount and a high megapixel EOS R model in the next 1-2 years. Currently, we don’t know any specifications about these two autofocus tilt-shift lenses or the exact announcement timeframe. However, the two rumored Canon autofocus tilt-shift lenses are expected to be announced in late 2021 while the high resolution EOS R model will be announced in the first half of 2022.
The two rumored autofocus tilt-shift lenses from Canon will be the Canon TS-R 14mm f/4L and Canon TS-R 24mm f/3.5L. These will be the first tilt-shift lenses with autofocus. As for mirrorless lenses, the short flange back is effective especially at wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses, so it seems that we can expect significant performance improvement (or miniaturization) for the two lenses that are rumored this time.
In addition, Canon is working hard on a new high-megapixel EOS R series camera (EOS R5S?). We previously reported that the Canon EOS R5S high-megapixel camera is now being tested by a very select group of photographers as a finished product, and it will feature a new 90MP sensor, which “just about doubles” the 45MP sensor of the Canon EOS R5. But now it seems it seems there is a possibility that an ultra-high pixel sensor of 100MP or more will be installed.
Currently, Canon hasn’t yet internally decided on which image sensor will come in the new high-megapixel RF mount camera. And this high-megapixel Canon EOS R system camera will replace the Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R.
