When do you the two EOS R bodies will be released?
I think one will be announced late Jan more likely Feb and in March while the other will be released in Q3.

What specs do you they will have?
Q1 realease
24 mp
2000 autofocus points
Electronic stabilization
1080p 60fps maybe 120fps
4K 30fps maybe 60fps (cropped)
Abt $1400

Q3 release
22 or 26 mp
3000 autofocus
Electronic stabilization
1080p 120fps
4K 60fps cropped
Abt 1600

So far the two that are coming is the 26MP entry-level one (that one is certified) and a high-megapixel model (about 80-100MP), the rest is probably farther away.

if the R already has > 5000 focus points, why would a Q3 release only have 3000? So I don't think these specs are anywhere near accurate

because sensor in R is a full frame and Q3 release is much smaller - APS-C (crop) hence lesser AF points to fit?

The "points" are actually clusters of DPAF pixels, so Canon can market the sensors as having between a single AF 'point' and 30 million. I think the biggest bottleneck is the processing speed, the digic 8 probably can't handle more than 5000 clusters at the same time.
And since this is Canon we're talking about, lower end models get the stupid treatment: the M50 has the same digic as the R and has only 150 'points', instead of 5000/(30/24)=4000 or 5000/(1.6^2)=2000 one would expect for the mpix or size difference.

yeah I know, but this was also said: When could an APS-C EOS R body arrive? I would think after the “professional/sports/wildlife” EOS R body. This point is just a prediction.

So if there's one, it would probably be at a later time I think. If there would be an APS-C R body, the amount of megapixels does sound about right.

At this point, no one knows something for sure so it's all speculation until we get closer to release of any type of R announcement.

nope. it was in interview with Canon official. they decided to limit number of AF points to 5000 in R as smaller size of the AF points makes it difficult to manage.
the smaller the sensor the lesser the maximum number of AF points.
