A new rumor tries to shed some light on what kind of EOS R cameras we can expect to see in 2021. The source states that at least two cameras are in the pipelines and already have “internal names”. No specifications have been suggested.
Two new EOS R cameras in 2021, but what kind of EOS R cameras? Enter speculation room and let’s have a look to possible scenarios, ranked from less likely to most likely (in our opinion):
- One of these two new R bodies might be the EOS R Mark II. However, it’s possible Canon will not release an EOS R Mark II and that the EOS R6 takes the place as replacement for the original EOS R.
- One of these two new R bodies might be a EOS R1, i.e. a top tier EOS R body which also is rumored since long. But is there already room in 2021 for such a camera after the EOS R5 is released in 2020?
- One of these two new R bodies might be the replacement for the EOS RP, already dubbed EOS R9 by the intertwined rumor mills network. So, a new entry-level EOS R body
- One of these two new R bodies might be a high resolution EOS R model, maybe even a high megapixel version of the EOS R5. Canon did it with the EOS 5D lineup introducing the EOS 5Ds and EOS 5Ds R. So, it’s not only possible but the most reliable speculation.
We root for the last two, and think they are what Canon might release in 2021. What do you think?
