A few months ago a rather weird rumor surface from the interconnected rumor jungle: the…
There has been some rumoring that Canon might announce a high resolution EOS R camera in 2019. Nikon has one, the Z 7, so it appears to be plain logic that Canon will follow.
Apparently not. Latest rumors reaching us suggest the high resolution EOS R camera will not ship in 2019, and that’s likely to be a 2020 affair.
We’re not sure what to think about this rumor. Canon itself said they will announce six new RF lenses in 2019, most clearly aimed to a high resolution sensor, so it seems a bit strange they would hold back the exactly camera that could exploit those lenses. The rumor suggests Canon might withhold the high res body until CP+ 2020.
Now for the stranger part. Same rumor says a “high end” EOS R will be announced within 2019. A contradictory statement and that’s when we decided to downgrade the rumor to CW2.
