Canon EOS R

Another Canon EOS R series body mentioned [CR2]

We don’t think the following information is related to the Canon EOS RP but could be information related to a third Canon EOS R camera body coming later in 2019.

New Canon EOS R body information?

  • The camera is in “final” development, but production has not started.
  • Dual card slots are present in the body, one being SD, the other being something else.
  • The touch bar is gone, replaced by a familiar joystick.

We don’t have any sort of specification list we can publish about the Canon EOS RP, but we don’t think this information fits the hints we have received about the coming mirrorless camera from Canon.

IBIS, eye auto focus, 4K, dual card slots, etc., as long as matching Sony a7riii in term of functions and price, I will start buying Canon R and RF lenses, mainly due to RF 50mm F1.2L.

Canon should release a Sony a7riii equivalent body next, not an entry level body, to make Canon RF 50mm F1.2L and Canon RF 28-70 F2L meaningful. I used Sony a7rii before. Canon RF 50mm F1.2L, and potentially other large aperture prime lenses in the future, created attention for me to decide to switch to Canon R and RF lenses. But if Canon R body is not competeable with Sony a7riii, I can’t make a move.

Wait for a decent Canon R body. I think this is what majority of Canon customers plan to do.

This would make sense if it's referring to a high resolution EOS R camera. I anticipate the EOS R replacement for the 5DS will debut in Q4 of 2019. Meanwhile, the entry-level EOS RP (or whatever they call it) will hit the shelves shortly after CP+ in February. I'm almost certain the second card slot is going to be CF-Express. It's fully compatible with XQD which will serve as a stop-gap until CFX cards become more abundant in the market. And Canon will likely try to roll out a 1D X III prior to the 2020 games, which will almost certainly have CFX.

nope they need first cash with 5k top model RP
next year they release R again with missing parts for those who can afford 3k semipro 5d4 replacement.

Off topic question: If one card is XQD/CFExpress and the other is UHS-1 card, does the camera write to XQD until it empty the it to UHS-1 card?

Not "majority of Canon customers" but maybe majority of high end Canon customers. We lose sight on the bigger part of the camera market.
