We're almost halfway through 2019 and we've seen some great cameras and lenses already – but we're sure there's plenty more to surface before the year is up.
So what happens next? We have an idea of what we expect and some manufacturers have already made it clear where they want to be heading with their various lines. And some rumors just don't seem to want to go anywhere, even if we get a few curveball releases to throw us off the scent now and again.

With all of this, we can start to piece together a rough picture of products that major camera companies might be aiming to release, and what thirsty photographers will be able to get their hands on in the near future.
Now, it’s time to really dive into all of the juiciest camera rumors from every major manufacturer, from Canon and Nikon through to Panasonic and Olympus.
Camera rumors 2019
Canon has confirmed that a professional mirrorless companion to the EOS R and EOS RP is in the pipeline, and rumors of replacements for the EOS M5 and M6 have been doing the rounds too. Will we see updates to the EOS 5D Mark IV, EOS 80D and EOS 7D Mark II soon?
With Nikon's full-frame mirrorless Z6 and Z7 cameras now settled in the market, could we see a higher-end model surface next? Or perhaps a more junior model will join them? An update to the full-frame D750 is another logical next move.
We've already had the Alpha A7R III and Alpha A7 III, so that just leaves the Alpha A7S II in need of an update. Elsewhere, does the arrival of the Alpha A6400 mean the much-rumored Alpha A7000 won't see the light of day? And what about lenses?
Fujifilm has had a busy year, with the X-T30 and GFX 100 arriving within the last few months. So what's next? An X-H2 update to the X-H1, perhaps? Or will an X-Pro3 update to the much-loved X-Pro2 finally materialise?
