Should you buy the Canon EOS 90D?

The Canon EOS 90D is right around the corner and we have some rumored specs to look over, but is it still worth getting if it's not a mirrorless camera?

Canon EOS 90D

As a previous Canon EOS 80D owner I am eagerly awaiting the Canon EOS 90D to possibly compliment my Canon EOS 1DX Mark ii. The Canon EOS 80D was announced in February 2016, and previously the Canon EOS 70D was announced in 2013. So we are now overdue a replacement.

Canon users in the mid pro DSLR market have been eagerly awaiting replacements for both the Canon EOS 80D and the Canon EOS 7D Mark ii. It’s believed the latter will not be replaced and instead we will get the Canon EOS 90D which will take the place of the mid pro dslr market segment.

Canon Rumors are now getting a bit more solid info on the upcoming camera, albeit not concrete information, we can glean much to shape our expectations.


This is still a possibility albeit very unlikely. An APS-C Mirrorless camera would be a great step for Canon. But we already have the Canon EOS M5 which is APS-C, although this only uses the EF-M mount.

There is also the possibility that the Canon EOS 90D would be a mirrorless EF mount camera. But as I said, this is highly unlikely.

Rumored Canon EOS 90D Specs

Canon Rumors have not been able to confirm and lock down the specifications for the Canon EOS 90D. But we do have some rumored specs and can make some educated guesses.

  1. Mirrorless APS-C
  2. 31.2MP APS-C Sensor
  3. Uncropped 4K recording
  4. Full coverage of sensor for AF
  5. 10FPS
  6. EyeAF in 4K and Full HD video
  7. LP-6N battery (used in 5D camera lineup)
  8. Video to HDMI

Specs we have not seen mentioned but hope to see included are:

  1. Pantalla de inclinación de ángulo Vari
  2. Concéntrate en el pico
  3. 2x SD card slots
  4. USB-C
  5. Pantalla táctil totalmente funcional

Fecha de lanzamiento

Canon Rumors are expecting an announcement to come in August 2019, around the 28th, with the camera shipping a month later.

El final de la montura EF

En 2018 Canon se unió al mercado sin espejo con la Canon EOS R y el anuncio de la montura de RF superior.

Canon ha lanzado posteriormente la Canon EOS RP y dedicado 2019 al desarrollo de la montura RF, anunciando seis lentes este año para agregar a las cinco lentes del lanzamiento de montaje de RF.

El consenso general es que los MIRRORLESS eventualmente reemplazarán a los DSLRs.

Aunque Canon ha afirmado que continuará desarrollando la alineación EF y las cámaras DLSR, el futuro es inevitablemente con la montura RF, como lo fue con la montura EF cuando reemplazó el soporte FD para cámaras SLR de Canons.

So the fact that Canon may be releasing a mid pro DSLR with the EF mount, shows Canon are still invested in the EF mount and DSLR market and recognise the need to accommodate users who are not ready to move to mirrorless.

Should you get the Canon EOS 90D?

If you are already invested in the EF mount, the Canon EOS 90D would a great addition to your camera gear.

Si usted no está invertido en cualquier sistema de la cámara, no tienen ni vidrio EF o no una gran inversión con tal vez uno o dos lentes, entonces me gustaría aconsejar fuertemente PRECAUCIÓN aquí.

The Canon EOS 90D will likely be the last mid pro DSLR. And I would hesitate to invest in a mount, that while more than capable of producing stellar work and will continue to do so for years to come, will eventually be deemed obsolete.

But though I use the word obsolete, which may be too strong, what I can safely say is that, as it is today with many older cameras, the Canon EOS 90D will continue to be used by professionals for work, years and years after even after the newer EOS R equivalent upgrades have come out.
