A Professional, EOS-1D X Equivalent Canon EOS R Model Might Come Earlier Than Expected

Canon Eos R

While we are still waiting for the high resolution Canon EOS R model, the rumor mill has suggestions about the EOS R model coming after.

Apparently Canon has decided to accelerate the development of a professional EOS R model, i.e. a mirrorless camera that can compare with Canon’s flagship EOS-1D X Mark II.

The same rumor suggests this EOS-1D X equivalent full frame mirrorless camera could be announced along with the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III, and it could happen in the first or second quarter of 2020. To be honest, Canon itself said they might make such a camera.

Our take: take it with a grain of salt. EOS R related rumors abound and so far the reliability is very low. The source of the rumor also ranks it low.

We now know what gear Canon is set to announced next. Stay tuned.

Next Canon Gear To Be Announced (PowerShot G7 X Mark III, RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM, EOS RP kit)

Canon Eos Rp

Canon is set to announce new gear soon.

According to Nokishita, this is what we can expect in the near future:

  • The Canon PowerSHot G7 X Mark III
  • Canon RF 24-240mm f4-6.3 IS USM lens (EOS R mirrorless system)
  • Canon EW-78F lens hood
  • A new Canon EOS RP kit with the Canon RF 24-240mm f4-6.3 IS USM lens

The PowerShot G7 X Mark III already leaked through certification authorities, images also have already leaked.

I’m glad to see that Canon will soon release an affordable zoom for their EOS R mirrorless system. That will for sure be very appreciated by users.
