The most die-hard of the implausible Canon rumors surfaced again. Although this time with some confidence. Will there be an EOS R model with an APS-C sensor?
According to the rumor mill that always propagated this rumor, Canon will announce such a camera in the second half of 2022. We still have a hard time to buy it. But we might be wrong, of course. It’s just that we don’t see Canon sidelining their EOS M system for another interchangeable lens system with APS-C sensor.
According to the source of the rumor, quoted as a “good source”, Canon will release a camera with RF mount and an APS-C imaging sensor. The imaging sensor is said to be a backside-illuminated sensor (BSI). Said sensor is rumored to get featured in “more than one camera”. It’s not known it these cameras will also have an RF mount, or not. Finally, a sensor resolution of 28-32MP is rumored.
Help us out here: do you think this is something that might happen? And if yes, what will be the future of the EOS M system? Time ago we got a suggestion that the EOS 7D Mark II will not be replaced. This lead many people to think the 7D2 will get replaced by an EOS R model with APS-C. This theory gets reinforced by the fact that the EOS M system seems not to be fit for a 7D2 replacement.
