As if it wasn’t enough to have a years long rumor about an unlikely Canon EOS R model with APS-C sensor, now we have three (3) such cameras that are rumored.
Coming from Canon Rumors, this new, low rated rumor adds even more absurdity to the queue. Three Canon EOS R models with APS-C are said to get announced one day. Oh, and obviously the EOS M system is declared death once more.
The first of the EOS R cameras with APS-C imaging sensor that are rumored is the EOS R7, which, could it be otherwise?, will replace the EOS 7D Mark II. This one might get announced towards the end of 2021, according to the source. But that an EOS R model with crop sensor might get announced within the year is said every 6 months since 3 years.
Next one in the cabinet of unlikely events is the EOS R8, said to be the tool for vloggers and other video people. No dates here.
Next, we have the EOS R9, said to be an entry-level camera.
Honestly, we still don’t think this will happen. We get similar rumors but so far refrained from posting since we do not buy it. Maybe there will be an RF mount camera with APS-C in the future, and with future we mean “in the future”. We just can’t see Canon killing the EOS M system, as these traffic driving rumors love to state. It’s a best selling system.
Feel free to politely share your opinion.
