YES! A full frame M6!!!!!
Possibly:

Same sensor as RP or R (26 / 30mpx) because that should now be cheap enough.

DIgic X (or the Digic 9 from the M7?) capable of running animal eye AF with the older sensor.

FPS no different to the R/RP depending on which sensor used.

No IBIS

4K full width

Flash hotshoe compatible with the EFV-DC1/EVF-DC2 viewfinders.

LP-E17 battery

Single UHS-II card slot

A new RF 24-80 f/4-5.6 kit lens

Brand new R6 sitting here in the box... Unsure if I really want to open it if it's just going to overheat. Meanwhile, Canon is trying to make other cameras?

I always love the disconnect between gearheads in camera communities and the actual market.

A full frame camera under $1000 will sell like absolute hotcakes no matter if it has a 20 megapixel sensor or the "crappy" 26 megapixel sensor from the RP again.

There are vastly more sales of cameras like the M50 from random people walking into a Best Buy or searching "camera" on Amazon than there are people who know anything about how old a sensor is, what a "full frame sensor" is, or even what dynamic range is. If you're going to complain, then clearly the camera isn't for you, it's as simple as that.
Some people have a hard time grasping that some cameras and lenses are made for OTHER people.

THIS is always a welcome notion. Until the pancake police come in and start talking flange distance and element protrusion conflicts, those party poopers.

So does the additional registration distance of an SLR make the pancake possible? I believed this but then remembered that the EF-M has the rather well regarded 22mm pancake, and Sony has one for the APS-C E-mounts.

Anyway I have the heavy duty stuff, and am hungry for a wheat and butter milk pancake, hold the sugar and syzurp (I'm on a low sugar diet).

Sorry, but f that mf-ing RP sensor — not unless they remove that scrambled cable channel AA filter off of it.
It's actually really funny for me to read this comment as a few hours ago I stumbled across some photos that I did in April. I had left my 5DIV at the office and a friend urgently needed some photos shot so I borrowed my kid's RP and did the shoot. I was looking at these photos and then saw the metadata and it reminded me that I shot them on the RP and I said to myself "Holy Crap! These look really great! I didn't think the RP was that good."

So you may feel it's a crappy sensor, but in my opinion, it still takes very nice photos.

I'm sorry, what were we talking about?

Ignore SteveC... He’s incapable of following the connection you’ve made that you’ve found results you’re happy with from the RP sensor. That you can get good results with it despite the AA filter. I guess following a thread is hard when you’re trying so hard to stir up confrontation.

I think this is a fine example of the benefit of having back up camera bodies (even if it was your kids). It’s awesome you got them an RP. A camera is such an awesome gift.

I wonder if they will remove the AA at this “budget” price point or if that will be reserved for bodies like the R6 and up.

Sony is releasing an A7c and it’s not budget at all at over $2K, but has the horrible form factor of the A6600. It’s a vloggers camera There is no word on any other entry level FF from Sony at all that would compete with a $1K EOS R camera.

I thought it was clear he was making a joke about being distracted by the attractive, bikini-clad subject of the photos.

Ah, you’re right. They’ve just been a repeat offender in rudeness lately but I apologize. The joke flew right over my head.

Oh god, maybe I’m the one stirring confrontation. My b SteveC. I think I need time off the forum. it’s quite addicting.

Sorry, Jim you missed my joke. Of course those are good pics, and his point is well made (I'm not anti-RP sensor; I'd better not be, I have a refurb RP on order). I went, looked at them, and forgot what we were talking about. Once I looked away, I was able to remember once again.

I apologized for mistakenly calling you out in another comment. Joke definitely flew over my head. I lost myself in a dark tunnel vision and now I see... I should take more breaks.

This will be a camera for the big box stores to sell to new photographers just as the digital rebel was. Its not going to be loaded with bells and whistles or super sensor or even a EVF. That does not mean it won't do a good job in the right hands, but everything possible will be cut out to get the price down. The cost to manufacture a camera is not even close to the selling price. There are so many hidden costs that bump the price up to that big figure. I think Canon would like to get a FF camera / lens kit into big box stores for <$1000.
