It is new generation , Canon’s first BSI sensor.

And still I believe DR depends on processor(s), and not so much about sensor ( less mpx the better of cause ).

Each processor generation has added some 0.3 stops of DR to the same generation sensor. Check dxomark 18 mpx apsc for example.

Hopefully dual digic 10 this time.
I know it’s a new generation, my point is this new generation will have the same dynamic range if it is 24 or 30mp, or 45, or 60. Pixel density does not seem to be a big factor in dynamic range capability when the sensors are the same generation and the output is normalized.

Look at examples from the 1DX III and R5.

You probably also mean same generation processor. It is possible indeed. We have no idea if Canon has thoughtfully configured ( cripled / down shifted ) to make no difference.

however in the past the same old sensor ( 18 mpx for example ) has a litle performance increase, if loaded with newer generation processor. Processor / motherboard are the botle necks in my opinion.

R3 processor has AI side tasks, so the main accomplishment may not be bigger DR diging at all.

No, I said what I meant. I also showed data to support that position.

I was all in on buying an R3 but after hearing the MP I will wait on the R1.
You are not alone my friend, and with us many many others…
More waiting… ‍Canon is challenging it’s users on a scale beyond belief.

Imagine Canon is now building the R1.. and you bet they are. The R1 will be at least 45 mpix. And at least 30fps. Less would be unacceptable with the R5 having a 45 mpix sensor.

Imagine the R1 hitting the market next year. What would the R3 still be worth?
Exactly.. not much. So I ain’t buying it.

All together this is a sad period in Canon’s product development history. The R3 will be considered outdated the minute it is launched I’m afraid.

Just crossing my fingers Canon is able to launch the R1 asap before Sony does an A1 mark II with 60mpix and 50fps or whatever epic specs..

Imagine if Canon released a 50 MP 5-series camera, then released a new 5-series camera with only 30 MP, then a 1-series camera with only 20 MP. Would that be unacceptable?

It also just means other companies would have to pay Canon royalties or a license. Which Kodi nox is extremely common in tech.
