Die-hard Rumor About Canon EOS R With APS-C Sensor Gets New Push

Eos R With Aps-c

It’s years now hat this rumor comes up at regular intervals. Canon making an EOS R with APS-C sensor.

It seems the rumor about Canon allegedly working on a camera with RF mount and an APS-C sensor has now been downgraded to Canon “actively been doing market research” to learn if such a camera makes any sense. We stated since this rumor came up: it does not. Neither is the future of the EOS M system uncertain or unknown. It’s a best selling APS-C mirrorless camera line-up.

The rumor about a camera with RF mount and APS-C has always had a home in the interweb of rumor mills. It’s years old, it started a few weeks after the release of the first Canon EOS R, and has always been utterly unrealistic. At least to us. The rumor got a climax in June 2021 when the suggestion of not less than three EOS R cameras with APS-C sensor came up. It appears now it is like we are “going to see one someday” in the best of cases.

There is the question of the successor of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II, Canon’s pro-oriented APS-C DSLR. A rumor we got suggests Canon does not think there are enough 7D2 shooters to justify a replacement. The EOS R system appears to be the cure for everything.
