How do you beat perfection? Canon would like to show the market how, but is its successor to the 5DS camera up to the task? Nikon’s latest camera, the D850, has won praise from critics and photographers alike, but the next camera from rival Canon may displace the device to which DxOMark assigned a score of 100. The much-anticipated followup to the wildly successful Canon 5DS/5DS R model line of cameras is expected to feature a small upgrade in the resolution department according to rumors circulating about the 2018 model on site CanonRumors.com, which says to not expect more than a 20% increase in the new camera’s resolution upon release. The Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R Mark II are among the Japanese manufacturers’ most popular makes and their upgrades were expected to reflect their market position as solid, middle-of-the-road devices. Their principal competitor, the Nikon D850 camera, is one of the most well-reviewed cameras of 2017.
