Sony is trying to push the A9 into the sports arena. A pro level EOS R will be measured against the latest A9, so I suspect that it will be positioned as an attractive upgrade from the 1Dx2, but not a true competitor of the 1Dx3. (This does put mean that the EF to RF converter must preserve the image quality and focus performance of existing EF lenses.) I'm still expecting an Rx to make some sort of splash at the 2020 Games. If so, it has to be a sports body.

I remain hopeful that the pro R will be a mirrorless 1DX3 and that Canon doesn't see the need to force people to choose between either the true flagship body or else the best glass (RF), but not both.

the first 'pro' R will probably the high resolution body mentioned quite a few times. It has also been rumoured that somewhere in 2020 we could see a new 5DV + R equivalent and then later (perhaps '21?) the 1D mirrorless equivalent.

If this would be a touch input, I wouldnt be that happy :/

It looks like an optical mouse sensor to me, so I guess you'd slide your finger over it. This would work with regular gloves as well!

Canon make hundreds of billions of dollars a year, they should be giving putting these specs in a rebel camera not a camera this level.

My microwave from 10 years ago had these specs, get with the times Canon!

Just preparing everyone for the other brand fanboys :p seriously though it looks amazing and can’t wait to see what they can do with the 1Dx mirrorless version!
I wish my microwave could do 16FPS in OVF and have 28MP sensor. Unfortunately it does not have it :-(

More camera for the money than the mark 2 and it uses a card format that isn't dead!. It's all win for me, since I think I'll give one last hurrah to EF before shuffling over to RF(which I tried recently and really didn't like for wildlife).

Where are the "illuminated buttons"?! Can't see them at the photos. Maybe they are lighted up around the buttons? I thought maybe they are glowing with transparent buttons^^.

Sounds like Canon is putting everything into this last model!? Bluetooth, wifi, lan, GPS, 16-20fps... 10bit video. But no words about IBIS (don't think this will fit into this rugged machine?!)

what a beast! Now how much MP will it have? 22, 24, 26?! ^^

Haven't heard about this new picture format: HEIF o_O..

This looks like a superb development camera along with them creating more great EOS R lenses announced today. Hope we see an EOS R Pro camera out next year - possibly a dual launch with the EOS 1DX Mark 3.

Great news Canon. Next up the replacement for the 5DS / 5DSr. That needs better low light performance, extended DR, and wider metering area. Otherwise leave as is.
