Canon traditionally makes product announcements at the CP+ show in Yokohama, Japan each February. 2024 will mark the next CP+ show, where Canon may unveil some of their new higher-end camera bodies along with new lenses.

So let’s start and define what is the Canon RF-S lens mount, APS-c and crop sensor?
The big advantage of the smaller APS-C sensor compared to the full frame cameras is the 1.6x crop which extends your effective focal length of lenses. This is ideal for wildlife, sports and action photography. The EOS R7 and EOS R10 are the first enthusiast level APS-C sensor mirrorless cameras in the EOS R series line-up.
RF and RF-S lenses offer higher quality, speed, and operation thanks to outstanding optical technology and design. Designed for the future with improved video capabilities, plus neat touches like the control ring and more compact size.
