Rumors about the cessation of development of Canon SLR cameras turned out to be a lie

Recently, a number of thematic publications published news that Canon supposedly will stop developing new

SLR cameras. Instead, the company will focus on mirrorless lenses. Canon officials said today that this information is false.

As an argument, the media cited the words of the representativeCanon by Richard Shepherd. Initially, they were misinterpreted by one foreign publication. In fact, Richard said the company plans to continue to release new RF lenses and is now focused on that. However, Canon is ready to create new EFs if the market so requires. In addition, there was no discussion of cameras as such.

According to company representatives, the focus on RF is logical, since the EF line is more fully equipped.

Canon RF is a bayonet mount for lenses designed for the Canon EOS R family of digital mirrorless cameras. The EF mount is designed for SLR cameras.
