A Pro-Oriented Canon EOS R To Be Announced In 2021, Prototype Already Around?

Canon Eos R Firmware Update

Is a professional tier Canon EOS R model due not earlier than 2021?

That’s what Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun reports. And that it will take 3 more years for the Canon RF lens ecosystem to match the EF mount lineup. And that a prototype of the pro-oriented EOS R body has already manufactured.

What we are talking here, is an EOS R model that’s equivalent to the Canon EOS-1D X cameras, i.e. the very flagship cameras in Canon’s offering. Such a camera has already been rumored, but its announcement was speculated to happen in 2020.

If this rumor is reliable, and we think it is, then at least we now know that a professional EOS R model is real. A working prototype means that Canon is actively developing this camera.

And where is the high resolution EOS R? So far we have no new intel about. Still considering a 2019 announcement to be likely.

Stay tuned.
