Canon Announces That The Powerful Professional Full-Frame EOS R3 Mirrorless Camera Is On Its Way

It definitely appears as though the lens mount of the R3 is shifted more to the right of the camera when facing it compared to the 1dx. That should provide even more room for holding the camera with gloves on.

Or, Canon may be introducing more fat RF lenses in the future and need that extra clearance from the grip.

I wouldn't count on it if it's low volume and Canon is no longer interested in APS-C why would they create a new sensor over the "good enough" 32MP sensor they already have.

If y'all are truly doing nothing other than chasing pixel density, then most likely the R5s or whatever it will be called if it's 100MP and hits around 8-10fps would most likely be the camera for you. Because I doubt Canon does anything more on the APS-C front.

Also north of $2500 wouldn't surprise me. IMO, they'll make it a baby 1 series, and charge you for it. they don't want to get into the APS-C game. APS-C from all the rumors we're seeing is dead to Canon.

Heck, it's essentially dead to Nikon too. Sony? hard to say, I think they update things just to shut people up by now.

I'm chasing pixel density, price, and specifically a crop sensor camera. My only FF lens is the 100-400mm II, all my few other lenses are EF-S mount (such as my pair of Sigma f/1.8 zooms). I don't have more money to spend to get full frame equivalent lenses, and I don't want to get a FF camera to use it solely in crop mode apart from with my telephoto zoom.

Canon will have to decide whether there is enough demand for a cropped RF sensor camera. They obviously have the best data for this with 7D sales info.

It certainly hasn't been a high priority so far.

We have a decent idea that one is coming, know it's going to be a higher end model (not a rebel replacement), but don't know specifically when, what price point, and specific features yet.

I wouldn't be surprised if there's no IBIS in the R3 nor the R1, since Canon could justify dis-including it from both, due to durability. I hope the opposite happens, of course. Global shutter and IBIS in an eventual R1 would be glorious.
For Pro sports and wildlife ibis has little value and is relatively fragile so I doubt it will be in R1,R3 or R7 .
Personally I'm not interested in it as a feature for my hobby of bird photography and the IS in my EF100-400 ii works fine for when I do want stabilization

I can't imagine IBIS not being included in any future RF camera (expect perhaps at the very entry level, to save on costs).

It seems like an expected feature nowadays on all mirrorless cameras, and there would be howls of outrage if it were not included on high end ML cameras.

I placed the 1DX3, R3, and R5 on top of each other and aligned them based on the inside of the mount. The R3 is larger than the R5, but the 1DX is also larger than the R3:

The RF throat diameter is slightly larger than EF, so your 1D X III is a little oversized (or the R3/R5 are a little undersized, if you prefer) in your rendering.

Now that smartphones have taken over the market for casual photography the remaining market for ILC is solely Pros and Hobbiests with the later being by far the larger segment.
Also the area where ILCs can't be replaced by smartphones is long lens photography so the R7 has potential to be a big seller and will far outsell the R3,R1 and 1DXiii in my opinion especially if Canon make it high spec with R3 style body , stacked crop sensor , rugged design , no ibis and a competitive price similar to the R6

There will be ZERO cameras hereon now without IBIS.

CameraSize.com originally had R3 and Photo Rumors posted a comparison.
I think they had R3 too small since the EF and RF mounts are basically the same size in real life but not in the picture.

Canon has a new patent for IBIS in smaller cameras so you may be right.
The RP body was originally too small for IBIS.
(It also would seem like a waste not to apply that research to M, Powershot, and Rebel bodies.)

Really ?
Very few wildlife and sports photographers care about ibis and the R3,R1 & R7 look to be targeted directly at this segment. This feature is quite fragile and complex so it's just something unnecessary that might break.
Personally I'd rather have an R7 without ibis that costs several hundred dollars less and I think most people interested in any specialised sports/wildlife camera would agree but sounds like you know everything already
