Back in April 2019, Michael Burnhill, European Technical Support Manager at Canon Europe said in an interview:
Question: Do you see a full-frame camera coming in at a price below the RP?
Michael Burnhill Yes.
The rumor source suggests Canon might release such an entry level camera with a price below $999 in the first half of 2021. A bit of a recycled one, this one.
However, even with a Canon exec saying there will be an entry level EOS R camera below the EOS RP, the question is: can Canon make and sell a full frame mirrorless camera that costs less than the actual RP price of $999? Might be difficult, in our opinion. What would be the price point, $700? Not realistic. If you have an idea how this might work out please let me know in the comment section.
