The Canon EOS R3 will be announced in the next 10 days or so, along with two affordable RF mount lenses, the RF 16mm f/2.8 STM/USM (AF motor is unknown at this time), and the RF 100-400mm f/5.6-7.1 IS USM compact telephoto zoom.

As always with rumors sites, my readers want to know what's coming next, almost immediately.

I now know that an EOS R system camera is coming in January, and it may not be the EOS R5c. The EOS R5c has been rumored for quite some time, but I'm not sure whether or not it will be considered a Cinema EOS camera body from sources.

The new camera in January may be a bit controversial for some Canon shooters according to the source.

“January is going to bring a camera that will annoy a lot of the fanboys” – according to a good source.

I'll be honest, I enjoy a nice glass of fanboy tears every now and then, so that quote has me quite interested.

If it's not the EOS R5c, what could it be?

I hope to have more information on this revelation soon.

  1. My prediction: a retro-styled camera to bite off Fuji's market share and compete with the a7C and ZFC. Think Canon AE1 design but digital. Nothing annoys fanboys more than form over function.
    Because it went over so well with Nikon.
  2. Are you kidding... I so wish the R3 was APS-H
    Before the DR fights, before the 18 MP 1.6 crop battles, before the mirrorless debates and before Canon is doooomed was coined there were The APS-H Wars.
  3. A super low res and low-light camera?

    Or the cheap $800 full frame one?

    Or APS-C with RF mount?

    A body with no mechanical shutter?

    A high MP version of the R3?

    A camera that requires an extra fee to unlock certain features like 8k video?

    An R5 with better heat sink and cooling?

    So many options!
