Here is a new, hot rumor about the alleged Canon EOS R model with an APS-C sensor. Is a Canon EOS R7 coming?
Canon Rumors reports that the Canon EOS R7 might be the next camera the company is going to announce. Unfortunately, despite coming from a “source with a pretty solid record“, the rumor doesn’t tell much but that the announcement of the Canon EOS R7 might happen in March 2022.
We have always been rather skeptical about the possibility of Canon making an EOS R model with APS-C sensor. Truth to be told, we are now slightly less skeptical. Some Canon patents suggest RF-S lenses (i.e. lenses for the RF mount and an APS-C imaging sensor) are at least considered in Canon’s R&D labs. Never the less, we still have a somewhat hard time buying the possibility of an EOS R model with APS-C. On the other hand, it’s likely that the EOS 7D Mark II and EOS 90D might not get a replacement. Which would give some credit to the white unicorn hypothesis (i.e. EOS R with APS-C).
