Canon EOS 90D Review
The Canon EOS 90D is a midrange DSLR that replaces the 3.5 year-old 80D and fits between the EOS 77D and the 'yes, it still exists' EOS 7D Mark II. It gains a new higher-resolution sensor with excellent Raw image quality, and offers competitive live view AF (with eye detect) as well as 4K video capture, all in a familiar package.
The 90D is essentially the DSLR version of the mirrorless EOS M6 Mark II, which was introduced alongside it. Since the specs are nearly identical, it looks like Canon is letting potential buyers choose what type of shooting experience they want: a midsize DSLR with an optical viewfinder and more physical controls, or a smaller and lighter mirrorless model with a removable electronic finder. And, of course, the difference in native lens lineups between the EF and M mounts could attract different types of users, as well.
- 32.5 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor
- Dual Pixel autofocus (live view/video)
- 45-point all cross-type AF (through the viewfinder)
- 220k-pixel metering sensor w/face detection
- 7 fps burst shooting w/continuous AF
- Fully articulating 3" touchscreen display
- Optical viewfinder w/100% coverage
- 4K/30p video capture with no crop
- USB 2.0 port with Micro USB connector
- Wi-Fi + Bluetooth
While the external design of the 90D doesn't dramatically depart from the pattern set down by the 80D, the guts of the new camera are quite a bit different, which we'll cover on the next page.
The 90D is available in several kits. The body alone is priced at $1199. When bundled with the EF-S 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM lens the price is $1349, while the kit with the more versatile EF-S 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM lens is $1599.
