Ooh, but its the 7D Mark 3 thats now being listed on product lists lol
I suggest to start talking about 7R Mark IV rumors now. I am pretty sure that there are already first spec lists already discussed somewhere in the net. Here is my start for the rumored spec list:

- 150 MP APS-C back & side lit sensor, actively cooled
- 100 fps
- light field technology, so no AF is anymore needed
- intelligent user recognition: noobs will be ignored, the camera then takes over the power and decides on its own what's worth to be photographed or filmed, and how
- infinite k video
- portable nuclear power plant to run this camera

This honestly has everything I'm looking for in a camera. I will probably end up selling my 5D4 and 1DX2 and replacing both of them with a pair of these.

Basically when you'll look through the EVF there will be a sensor touching your forehead and it will detect how much you actually know about photography.
Based on that information, you might only get access to noobs green modes, as you said:)

I'm afraid there won't be. But why is it a good thing? I mean you can always turn it off?

I have never felt the GPS on Powershot S100 or EOS 7D II was battery hogs. But having smartphone connected and using it as GPS, definetely is a battery hog for the smartphone. Besides that, the smartphone solution works really bad and unreliable in practice. With my new G5 X II, I'm back to use external GPS device and sync geocoordinates into photos on the PC in postprocessing. It feels like stepping 6-9 years back to before I purchased the S100 and 7D II. But it is better than using the app.
R5 being a mirrorless camera and even with larger battery it still wont match battery life of DSLRs. Also the time it takes to acquire signal and then interprete signal kills the purpose of having gps in camera ready to shoot. I personally prefer using Garmin gps to generate tracks which seems to be the most accurate and reliable method of geotagging my photos. On smartphone with gps enabled I make sure to turn off data and screen which seems to alliviate the battery drain significantly.

Do you get a light sabre with that, that can be charged via the hot Shue? That has to be an essential accessory for the intrepid photographer.
All the little leaks have now gone beyond marketing, just announce the camera lol!!

I was thinking the same thing for selling all my bodies. This is the one!

That is the same information I am waiting to hear. I have it in the 5Dmk4 and have the external one for my mk3 and am hoping it comes standard with the R5.

I hope so as well, but I fear you'll be needing a GP-E2 or use the Canon app on your phone for that.

I don't think 12fps mechanical 20fps electronic is a rumour any more. Canon Canada's website lists that spec as legit:

Wow, I just saw that they anonced a RF 100-500 L
Thats exciting! It looks realy promising small, like the impressive small RF 70-200. I must say, these new lenses are truely interesting. In combination with the small body it makes for a quite nice travel-package, while retaining high-end quality.
Though I may miss the option of the celver variable ND filter that can only be used with EF lenses :D

Most probably using external reciever or by syncing with cell phone only. So far Canon hasnt mentioned built in GPS(which is a good thing given that GPS can be a battery hog) for this camera.
I'd rather have a built in GPS (that can be turned off!) than this clumsy Canon GPS receiver.

For those folks who are Definitely Not Noobs there's the "P for Professionals" mode which gives you access to all the settings so you can feel good about yourself and then goes to ignore them all and and actually shoots at full auto.

I’m so impatient to get all the specs already. since i can’t believe Canon hasn’t finalized everything major (sensor rez?) what’s the point of waiting now? its not like they have an older version of this out already. and those of us waiting for this aren’t going to buy a different Canon camera in the meantime.
