Feels like finally we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. No doubt this will generate a lot of excitation and expectations. I guess it is wise to keep expectation low. It is Canon. This time around Canon might decide to pull a 5D2 moment that would be simply awesome!!! but then I have to keep my expectation low :rolleyes:
I think it's perfectly reasonable with the lenses on this list that they do just that. It probably hasn't had it's pricing finalized and isn't coming out until later this year - I'm guessing they'll just show a mockup or early model? The list shown above is from an actual order form so these are just what's going to be available in the immediate future. I know on the copier side of the business they generally update the catalog/order forms about 6 times a year. I can't imagine the photo side being all that different, I'm sure it'll be listed in the next round.

Yes, these seem to be adapters to mount R lenses on other mounts. Everything points to EF lenses mounting directly on the new camera.
Rather, I suspect they are adapters to mount PL lenses on the EOS R, one of which has an ND filter option.

I think that 28-70 F2 is a typo and its actually 2.8. Anyway, this is really exciting, hoping for some additional leaks before next week.

Maybe this is one of the reasons the 70-200 III only got coatings and a paint job. I can imagine developing all of this new gear over the last several years would take a lot of time and resources - it may have made more sense to just do a refresh of the 70-200 (considering how good it still is) when you're developing all of this behind the scenes.

I hope not (if that list is true at all). 28-70 f2.8 would make it worse than classic EF 24-70 f2.8L II.
f2, on the other hand, is quite impressive, it's literally +1 stop of light, shallower DoF and cooler bokeh. That'd kill Nikon with its mediocre initial Z-mount lens selection.

Seems a bit odd we'd have a small MILC with PL lens mounting. Usually see those on more full featured, dedicated cinema cameras.
Unless this is a full featured cinema camera - this could be Canon's answer to the requests for full video features on a DSLR form factor. One of the earlier rumours did mention that one of the two cameras coming would have much more advanced video features...

I'm sure the adapter is more geared towards people buying it for future R mount 5d*/1d* cameras. It instills confidence that those mounts are still going to be supported in the future. It's just an adapter, so why not release it now? It'll still be usable on this camera, even if it's not going to be used by a huge number of folks until the more professional models come out.

Still possible disappointment. if a high end, high mp body isn't released I will have nothing to pre-order.
A lot of us have been expecting a 5DS(R) successor for a while. But it may make sense for Canon to release a high-res model as an EOS R to completely remove the mirror-slap effect. A mirrorless model seems like the way to go if they ever intended to upscale the 120MXSC sensor to full-frame (or some variant of it).

Yeah I suspect that's what they're going for. Terrible idea though, I want a decent stills camera and not some weird hybrid where half my money goes into video features I never use.

Or maybe part of the refresh was making it more compatible with the mirrorless AF system?

Granted, yes. However, this is still a stills camera first (at least all indication), so a PL mount would be a bit oddball even if it has robust cinema features. You generally see PL mounted glass on bigger bodies like black magic URSA mini sized or Canon C line sized and bigger. We're talking about a body here that is smaller than a 6D
