With the CP+ show in Yokohama, Japan beginning on February 28, 2019, it’s obvious we’re going to see some significant product announcements from Canon ahead of that date. CP+ is generally a show that Canon uses to show a lot of new gear.
WPPI also begins in Las Vegas on February 27, 2019. You can see the 2019 trade show schedule here.
The latest word on the street is that Canon will be announcing new gear on February 14, 2019. This date is quite likely for announcements.
We think the Canon EOS RP will be announced, along with at least 2 RF mount lenses. The PowerShot G7 X Mark III may also make an appearance for this show, but is so far proving to be a unicorn. There’s been no mention of any new EOS M or EOS DSLRs being announced as of yet.

Hmmm.... maybe a $1,000 FF RP? "Dream in one hand and s...."
More likely 'RP' will stand for 'Professional', ie the mythic high MP EOS R - in which case, much more than $1,000. Not to say that there won't be a 'consumer' (RC?) version later in the year.

But, if it is high MP, the parallel RF lens releases would normally be aimed at the body - so some more L primes? Especially a wide angle?

Likely? Canon have never indicated market tier with their designations; that has always been implicit. Thankfully they've never been a company that has fallen for the Pro tagline.

Hopefully P means something quirkily Japanese like Play, to be followed by the RE Expression.

Keep in mind though that we already know of a Full Frame Mirrorless camera that was registered a while back and only has acerage resolution:

2019 announcement

Quoted from https://www.canonrumors.com/breaking-down-the-latest-canon-gear-to-appear-for-certification/

In that rumor it was mentioned that CR guy thought there would be no camera below the R. But that obviously changed over the more recent posts.

Isn't Canon usually doing this tickle up game, where they test their core features on lower prices bodys and release proffessional one later? Dual Pixel AF (70D), Swivel Screens (T3i), Touchscreens (T4i), their entire mirrorless tech (M6, M5 M50...), all that is quoted as being good about the R comes from development of lower end bodies. Maybe they want to continue with that for a while until they can really justify putting it all in a true 5D or 1D type camera.

If EOS RP proves to be a 50Mpixel 9 fps camera (with super fast EVF) I will be interested. Drrrrriiiinnn oh no my alarm just woke me! :D

If it is an EOS 5DsR MkII I will BUY it! (OK now I am dreaming wide awake! ) :ROFLMAO::D:ROFLMAO:

P.S If Nikon can make a 45Mp 9fps camera CANon CAN do it too!
P.S2 With a big buffer please!
