Canon is allegedly working to update the EOS 5Ds and 5DS R DSLR cameras in 50MP resolution. The replacement of these models will be in late 2017, sources say.
As mentioned in the official announcement both cameras are identical. The only difference is the effect of the EOS 5DS R’s low pass filter.
The rumor mill mentions that the upcoming EOS 5DS/R Mark II will be only one camera. It will replace both EOS 5DS and 5DS R.
Canon EOS 5DS Mark II Coming in Late 2017
As we are familiar that Canon usually makes the full-frame DSLR update cycles in 4 years or more. So if true this will be a quicker update than other recent full frame digital SLRs.
According to recent rumors, the Canon EOS 5DS Mark II DSLR camera will probably be announced in Q4 of 2017. The company will unveil only one body to replace both the 5DS and 5DS R.
The high-end big megapixel camera features dual DIGIC 6 processors, a 61-point AF system with 41 cross-type points and a 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor with 252 zones. They are capable of 1080/30p HD video recording and offer dual SD/CF card slots.
There are no details at the moment. So the specifications and price information is still unknown. On the other hand we can easily expect the Canon EOS 5DS successor will have a new sensor. The body should be in the same ergonomics and features as the newly released 5D Mark IV.
