Since yesterday’s post, we’ve been getting a lot of information from unknown sources. I’m going to just post them all here without a rumor rating and you can do what you’d like with this information.
Canon EOS R Information:

Name: Canon EOS R
RF Mount (New mount, possible EF compatibility?)
No reports of new “RF” lenses being announced alongside the body.
Similar ergonomics to the EOS M50
Slightly larger body than the EOS M50
Will compete with the Sony A7 III & Nikon Z6
24mp or 28mp (Two different reports)
Announcement September 5, 2018

As I mentioned, I won’t be rating any of this information going forward. We only have one more week to wait to wait for the reveal.

EOS M, R- why not just keep going through the alphabet? :)

Now, what does R stand for? Reflex (ironic), Resist (as in resist change), Resolution (not with 28MP, Retails for less than Sony?

None of these are very good but that’s all I can think of before I have my coffee. :coffee:

'R' stands for 'Ready to stuff it to Transpo1 and AvTvMFullstop and we'll show them how to make a camera'

Can’t believe Canon has held info this tight a few days prior to announcement which makes me very skeptical there will be an announcement on 5 Sept.

yes, yes yes. That would be fully in line with my "highly esoteric" o_O expectations. :p

No problem, if Canon decides to call new mount lenses "RF" instead of "EF-X". Although RF sounds like a "Rangefinder" acronym to me. :)


PS: maybe I posed as an inside source and sent those "specs" to CR guy :eek: ... just joking, would never do that.

Could still happen, but yes. Also the EF-M 32 prime announcement has me thinking we might see an M5 II (or possibly even higher end EF-M rig) instead of a FF announcement.
