Besides us having been utterly wrong, it seems now ascertained that Canon will soon announce…
So, the Canon EOS R3 and the RF 16mm and RF 100-400mm are scheduled to get announced tomorrow. What about the shipping dates?
Nokishita tweeted that the RF 16mm and RF 100-400mm will be available in Japan in late October 2021, the EOS R3 will start ship in late November 2021. The multi-accessory shoe smartphone adapter “AD-P1” will ship in February 2022, and the multi-accessory shoe stereo microphone “DM-E1D” in March 2022.
Get ready for tomorrow’s announcement!
While waiting for the one that’s born to rule, have a look how impressing the 30fps of the R3 are. We expect the announcement in Fall 2021, likely in September. Here is what we know about the EOS R3 so far:
