I think Canon has to release a lower-end R body because currently the R lineup's naming convention is simply too sensical. You have just the R. They need a few more models to create their required level of naming convention contradiction and confusion. Like when they introduced the 77D or the M50. They need to have multiple numbers that seem to go in a certain order so that the next camera can contradict expectations. Where a normal person might think of the upcoming low end body as the R- and the rumored high-end body the R+, Canon will name them something like the EOS R10 and the EOS R79.5S. And then the 4th body to come out will be called the Vixia M(R).
