And here is the latest Canon EOS R1 rumor, one of the longest running rumors. A rumor that started the day after the first EOS R was announced. Will it eventually become real?

Latest has it that Canon has put the Canon EOS R1 into the hands of selected photographers for test purposes. Says the source of the rumor:

[…] expect “some kind” of announcement in Q1 of 2024. If you recall, Canon first gave a development announcement for the EOS R3 and put it in the hands of professional photographers for the Tokyo Olympics before an official announcement.

[…] prototypes of the EOS R1 are in the hands of the usual professional photographers as Canon readies the launch of the flagship.

[…] we have been told that Canon has “impressively” improved iris tracking AF point selection.

[…] Quad Pixel AF is not ready and will not be featured in the Canon EOS R1 image sensor.

Not much, to be honest. Not sure if the announcement in Q1 2024 is to be taken seriously. Until the usual few Japanese sites report about, it is better to take it with a grain of salt.

Stay tuned.
