Canon releases its first-ever full-frame mirrorless camera. Unveiled as the EOS R system, the new camera serves as a high-performance, prosumer mirrorless, but in a compact design. Able to support current EF, EF-S, TS-E and MP-E lenses, the EOS R features the fastest autofocusing speeds in the world (with 5,655 manually selectable AF points), a weather-sealed body, 4K UHD video capabilities (@30fps), has an ISO range expandable to 102,400, a 30.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, and is powered by a DIGIC 8 processor.
Announced in conjunction with the EOS R is a new range of lenses that make the most out of the new system. A new EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III and EF 600mm f/4L IS II claim the throne for the world’s lightest super-telephoto lenses, while the new EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM takes home the title for largest and fasted aperture EF-M lens. Set for an October release, the Canon EOS R will retail for $2299 USD for the body only, and $3399 with the new RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM lens.
