Ok but $1500 is alot more plausible than something below the RP though
I'm not saying those models can't. Just saying it would be very UN-Canon like to have such an insanely robust feature set in such a low priced camera. You still have to have SOME serious differences apart from just a higher res sensor (assuming both are FF) for what we would assume a $2500 to be if it is indeed a bargain camera vs the R5+1, but koenkooi has a point on data. The M6 II moves a ton of data, crop or no crop.
The surprise here is that Canon -- if specs are true -- is finally removing on the governors on its FF mechanical shutters. I howled at the moon for so many posts that Canon (either by
nerfingfeature-set differentiation or cost/profitability goals) thought that 7 fps was a nice enough upgrade to the 5D line when the 5D4 came out. Since that time, every competitor has been pushing higher fps with mechanica shutter in the not-1-series price points: A99 II, Z6, A7III are 12 fps, and they run the gamut price-wise.
So -- perhaps -- Canon is not going to restrict heretofore higher-end shutters to 1-series only (or they made a better/faster/more robust non-1-series shutter). Amen to that.

No I agree the R and RP are goners. Moving past that, I still say based on recent previous rumors, I think this is more likely to turn out to be the video RF which will sit at a similar price to the R5, which bears out having the specs like framerates we keep talking on.If the R6 is the cheaper one -- and it's not some sleeping video behemoth or gripped 1-series beast -- I think RP dies, I honestly do. It doesn't fit into an R-numbered FF portfolio.
Keeping it around and sequeling it over time would be like the Audi dealer selling you "Here's the A7, A6, A5, A4, A3... and the TT." It may exist, but it does not logically belong.
Worth noting too, 20mp on a full frame sensor is some FAT pixels. Could be an answer to the A7s line, could be full frame 4k in camera. Usually fat pixels give a much nicer image render and may become the camera of choice for wedding togs.
4k60fps is a higher-end feature, which only the 20MP will have as well as full readout for video.While I am more interested in the R5 specs, I would not discount the R6. Although it is reportedly 20 MP, it just might be a low light beast in a more affordable package.
We should already know how it performs, no? With 20 mpx, it seems like Canon might be mostly reusing a 1DX III sensor? And btw - I doubt, that 20mpx is enough for wedding photogs. If wedding photogs are using mostly a 5DIVs, noone's going to go down to 20, including us. 20mpx R6 might be just a complementary camera, depending upon what does it do. Actually photogs might be caught in between, as 20mpx is too low, while 45mpx might not provide enough of DR advancement over the 5DIV's 30mpx sensor. And no, wedding photogs don't need a high framerate gun.

The higher megapixel model will have FF 4k, but probably not at 60p
You say that but pixels 50% bigger than the 5d4 could mean iso 12800 looks like todays 3200.
I'd be very surprised if they rehashed the 1ds3 sensor. That thing maxed out at iso 1600
Specifically, unless Canon has a boatload of old sensors laying around, it's not an old 20mp (like the old 6D or something). Fabrications processes have been completed updated since then. If it's FF 20MP, you can bank it's the same one in the DX320 megapixels - interesting. I wonder if it's old-tech, or related to the 1Dx III sensor. Or something completely new. I wouldn't have been surprised if it would have gotten the present R sensor, given it's assumed place on the totem pole.

Canon has a long history of using sensors over and over, and the sensor itself is frankly the least important major component of the 1DX line in my opinion. It's actually really the same sensor as the DX2 with an upgraded AA filter on it. Canon calls it "new" but it's otherwise the same size, readout, ADC etc... far as I can tell. The extra $3-4k to step up to the 1DX series is about way more than just a sensor.I know Canon does some odd things, but I'm wondering why they'd put the same sensor of their flagship DSLR into their entry-level (or near entry-level) FF mirrorless. Of course, they are in the process of revamping their lines of cameras, so the R6 may not parallel the 6D II at all.
