EOS 850D Rebel T8 rumours
EOS 850D – Rebel T8i, EOS 77D mk2 rumours/info
Replacement(s) for the 800D/77D / Rebel T7i
With the introduction of the 850D and 77D in February 2017, the ‘Rebel’ line looks firmly to have split.
How will these cameras eventually be replaced? The 2019 90D and lack of 7D mk3 suggests that the DSLR market shrinkage is greater than predicted, so we may yet see a single successor to the 77D/800D

EOS 850D/T8/77D mk2 rumours – 800D/77D replacements
3rd The 77/850 have been relatively long lived, with changes in the camera market drastic enough that any planned earlier 77/850 developments may have been seriously altered. We may even see a single 850D/900D model as the 77/800 split is halted.
This could indeed be a 77D or 800D replacement, since a step up in processor to Digic 8 and the incorporation of 4k video would seem obvious changes. The new 32MP sensor seen in the M6II nd 90D may also feature.
It’s worth noting suggestions we’ve had that a crop sensor mirrorless to match Nikon’s Z50 is on the way, but the ages of the 77D/800D and older technology used in them suggest there is life in Canon’s xxxD line yet.
It’s also worth noting that with the small amount of detail available at the moment that it could be an M50 mk2 (or M60) – the 800D/77D are both a year older though and a 3 yr old ‘Rebel’ still looks the most likely for update – see the timeline)
15th The 800D/T7i and 77D are announced.
The split first seen in the previous 750D/760D models is made more obvious (from a marketing point of view).
Previous history would suggest that we’re not going to see much here until at least late 2018. Pre-release rumours for the 800D are at the foot of the 800D page
