Update: The latest information shows a 26.2mp sensor in the EOS RP.

We've been sent an unconfirmed specification list for the upcoming Canon EOS RP. We have this rated as [CR1] as we have not been able to confirm this information from the usual folks.

Canon EOS RP Specifications:

  • Camera weight is 400g(440g), the lightest full-frame mirrorless camera ever
  • A side-articulated monitor and a comfortable grip
  • A new 24MP CMOS sensor. 26.2mp sensor
  • No Touch Bar and top monitor but an extra dial
  • 5FPS
  • Standard ISO 100-40000
  • Eye AF now supports Servo AF and Video AF
  • Dual Pixel AF speed is 0.05 sec.
  • USB-C and headphone jack are available. Battery charging while shooting is
  • supported
  • Canon Log, HDMI clean output, and 1.56x 4K crop
  • Battery: LP-E17
  • Price is about $1300USD for the body (We're really hoping it's priced this aggressively)

Keep in mind that pricing can sometimes be lost in translation due to currency exchange.  $1300 is really aggressive for a full frame camera. Earlier rumors pegged the camera at $1600 USD and we've also heard $1500.

We're told that the Extension Grip EG-E1 is a 1cm thick “plate” to be installed under EOS RP.  It makes a better grip to hold the camera while the memory card and battery can still be removed.

We're also told that Canon will also announce 8 RF lenses. (5 have already leaked). I haven't been able to confirm the additional 3 lenses, but it's possible we get a few development announcements.
