We thought that the Canon EOS R100 was coming later in Q4, but it looks like we're going to see it much sooner. We expect a lot of similarities with the EOS R50 as far as the hardware inside the camera, but a lot of features omitted from the final design. Could this camera omit the EVF?
Canon EOS R100 Pricing (USD)
- Body: $479
- Lens kit: $599
- Double zoom kit: $829
- Off-camera shoe cord OC-E4A: $180
Canon will also be announcing an RF 28mm f/2.8 STM, which may seem a bit strange. We wonder if this will finally be the pancake lens everyone wants. It will be priced at only $299 USD.
While not yet interested in the body, the lens could be cool, if it's really an FF pancake and with not too much electronic correction.
If it's really getting into the M6 II footsteps, it might even become interesting for me as a to-go small unit.
Doesn't surprise to be honest, as far as I can recall historically only Nikon & Leica have offered fast 28mm lenses.
Introducing an off-camera flash cord with a high end body and a high end flash makes sense. Introducing an off-camera flash cord (for which there is no available native flash) with an entry-level body and lens, to me makes no sense.
I suppose it could be completely unrelated, i.e. Canon will 'announce' the R100 and RF 28/2.8, and just release the OC-E4A with no mention or fanfare at the same time.
Outrageous pricing from Canon would not be a surprise. :p
