Excellent. I always enjoy a APS-C camera for times when I need more pixels on the subject. I hope it has similar build quality as the 7D Mk2.

Brilliant. Does show that the pundits in this forum are 'not' always right. This must be humbling.
For me, this will be bought only if it is lighter, smaller with lighter, smaller lenses.

IF the rumour is true, and it’s a VERY BIG IF, then this would be an ideal companion to my R5 body, and would probably be my next camera purchase, assuming that it is modelled on the R5 rather than the, er RP.

Stacked BSI would of course be better but any BSI will result n less noise and better low-light performance.
Not going with stacked BSI will allow Canon to use the same sensor in more affordable cameras.
Fuji has committed to making an APS-C stacked BSI sensor.
As much as I would love a stacked sensor for the rolling shutter performance, I would choose a Canon BSI over a Fuji stacked.
I am sure Fuji fans would see differently.

BSI does not necessarily result in lower noise levels and improves low-light performance. Again with the examples from Nikon with the D750 and D780 and the Z5 and Z6 we have a BSI vs non BSI sensor and both perform quite equally even at ISO 14,000. Stacked sensors on the other had have clear and noticeable differences from the moment you put your eye up to the EVF.

Not a problem. Canon only needs 1-2 lenses for an APS-C body: a standard zoom similar to the 15-85 EF-S and a wide angle similar to the 10-22 EF-S. For everything else, standard RF lens focal lengths are fine or even preferred. With the R system, Canon no longer has to worry about separate mounts as they can easily make those crop lenses automatically crop to 1.6 on any R body just as EF-S lenses do now.
Let's hope they do actually plan for those, and no market that aps-c sensor R camera for use to have more reach on telephoto lenses for sports and wildlife.

APS-H would make more sense (and skip on smaller image circle lenses from scratch on). The slight crop would give a nice little magnification + faster readout speeds + cheaper to build sensors / cameras (just a cheaper high speed lineup of bodies like the 90D etc). At least that would make more sense than introducing APS-C again on RF mount. ^^

I'm not sure about the death of the M system. It seems like the main traits of the M series that appeals to people won't be easy to replicate in the R format. And, why would they need to do that? The M series has found its niche and sells very well. It's probably a little bit like the Rebels, 99% of buyers never move beyond the basic kit they start with.

An actual announcement by Canon of an APS-C EOS R camera will prove those who argue against it to be wrong. A CR2 rumor is proof of nothing.

Unless they also make smaller RFS lenses I just don’t understand the appeal of a smaller sensor but FF lenses. Your not gaining anything, but losing IQ. You can always crop FF for more lens reach. I get that some people want a smaller compact kit for travel or convenience for casual shooting but wasn’t there a statement that Canon wasn’t going to make any RFS glass? Or has that changed again? I guess you could adapt EFS glass. They must be planning on smaller lenses for the system otherwise I see no advantage.

Still, fighting against it sir? Deep breaths, this has always been impending. My humble thinking.

That would be an actual amazing camera unlike a recently released camera that show
Since Canon is starting from scratch with this mount I wonder if they would consider going to 1.5x crop for APS-C.

Hell no! I love that little bit of extra reach that always accompanies Canon's APS-C cameras

My sentiments exactly.

Eos - m , finally completely death. ( if they will not come out with competition to DJI pocket )
Or, maybe one of the other bodies this sensor is coming to will be an M. :unsure:

The delays in the APS-C lines might reflect the limits in the prior sensor technology and BSI gives Canon some new opportunities in these lines.

Looks like I'll be waiting another year for the camera I wanted to buy right after I got my R6, a year ago...

The destruction of Earth upon the Sun converting to a red giant is also impending. :p
