The Canon EOS RP is currently the cheapest entry point for the EOS R system. It can currently be had for $999 USD.
I have been told that Canon will introduce a new entry-level full-frame EOS R camera in the first half of 2021 and that it will come in under $999 USD.
No specifications have been given, but you can likely expect the camera to omit things like an EVF to get costs down. Rumor has it that Sony will be doing a similar thing in the near future.
More to come…
