We mentioned previously that four new full-frame cameras were coming from Canon in 2020, and we now know two of them are the EOS-1D X Mark III and the EOS R5. The third camera looks to be the EOS R6, as we received base specifications for the upcoming mirrorless camera.
Canon EOS R6 Specifications:

20mp full-frame CMOS sensor
IBIS
12fps mechanical and 20fps electronic.
4K @ 60p
New battery (Not sure if it’s the same as the EOS R5)
June 2020 launch (We think a May announcement)

We’ll update you once we hear more

So were the R and RP just starter models with throwaway names?

Will the future be:
R1 (some face melting gripped sports volcano)​
R5S (high res)​
R5 (today's earlier rumor)​
R6 (this thread's rumor)​

And a relatively modest 20 MP sensor in a 20 fps (we presume not gripped) body as the entry price point spec on that list?

Ah, so this is the rumoured model below the RP.

So say you. RP lacks IBIS and sure as hell can't pop 12 / 20 fps.

R5 feels like the 5D5.
R6 feels like the 6D3.

RP may have been an inexpensive platform bugzapper to draw folks in to the platform. Perhaps RP and the original R will die out now once the more familiar hierarchy I posted above gets released.

I meant having regard to price-point. That was the rumour. I agree it could actually be better. RP was there as a cut-price FF (reusing the 6Dii sensor) to try and get people to upgrade into FF mirrorless. And with good video specs. But it does seem to have been a one-off.

Gotcha.

So follow my very loose tea leaf assembly here. If an R5 is coming with the specs from the rumor, and this R6 is happening...

I feel pretty good in thinking our familiar product lines in 1 / 5S (res) / 5 (all-around) / 6 and possibly 7 are happening with an R in front.

And if THAT happens, where does EOS R or RP fit in that scheme? One might argue that neither do, and we might not see R2 or RP2 happen.

This camera can't be a 6D successor with a lower resolution sensor than the 6DII.


Sure it could. Tell every 6D2 owner that their new camera will come with all of the following upgrades:
  • IBIS
  • A proper on-chip ADC sensor (one can only hope that wrong is righted)
  • 20 fps
  • 4K
...and all it will cost them is (idk) $1800 and 6 less MP.

I bet you'd sell a bunch of cameras. Not all users would take that camera, but many would.

If anything, these specs say "7DIII" minus the crop sensor . . . and if it is, I think there may never be an APS-C R :oops: Or, the rumor is wrong and this isn't a full-frame camera . . .


At the below RP pricepoint....? Oh it will sell a LOAD of cameras. It's an introduction FF so why not 20MP?

And if THAT happens, where does EOS R or RP fit in that scheme?

Probably taken out the back and quietly shot.


Oh no, Cat said Voldemort.

Birders will have kittens over that one.

Oooops I invoked the Unholy Name of Sony unwittenly....... Umm... Canon is DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED?

(Altho if lets say the guess is right and the R7 IS a APS-C sports camera...... just imagine the M6 II's sensor spiced up with a DIGICX and cut down 1D mkIII liveview AF performance. Twin card slots, 7D II style budgeon people strong body - I reckon not just birders would lose their damn minds. It's not like that's a pie in the sky wish list, that IS a likely to be seen camera)

OR...………...the rumour is a little off and the R6 may actually be a crop sensor 20mp camera

If the rest of the specs are to be believed (sans that one), I buy it. If it's a full frame camera, with low MP and medium-high FPS, it doesn't fit anywhere within the current schema, unless it's also a low-light monster (and, therefore, an a7s competitor). Hmmmmmmmm.
