It seems the rumors about the Canon EOS R1 got the usual shift in expectations. Now it is not earlier than the second half of 2023.
The Canon EOS R1, supposed to replace the EOS-1D X series, is now rumored to get announced not earlier than the second half of 2023. Says the source of the rumor:
With Canon and other manufacturers still suffering from inventory shortages, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. We also believe Canon wants to round out the lens lineup further before the EOS R1.
Announcement dates are mostly wild speculation until a few months before the announcement. That Canon will release an EOS R1 model is sure, for that matter, we just do not know Canon’s plans for the release of the EOS R1.
