Canon has registered two new ILC bodies with the Russian certification agency. The two new cameras have the product codes “DS126841” and “DS126842”.  These are not  EOS M cameras, but they are interchangeable lens cameras.
The product codes are also sequential, so this could mean the cameras are closely related, and it could even simply just come down to color.
Certifications can come months in advance, so it’s unlikely these new cameras are coming in 2021, but there are announcements expected in January of 2022 and in the spring of 2022.

I feel like this stands to reason. With the R3 coming, I could see them doing a revamp of the older bodies before announcing the R1.
That idea would be a reasonable strategy for Canon. Maybe a RP and R replacement in 2022 along with a high MP FF body and a APS-C body? Four cameras would be a lot in a single year, but two would be replacements and two would be new offerings.

I’m figuring that the R won’t be replaced, as it is effectively replaced by the R6. The R1 is at least a year away, and just about everything else is covered by the R5 and R3.

… and we know that it isn’t an M series camera.

So that leaves either an R7 (APS) or a RP replacement. The latter seems far more likely, as it is long overdue for an IBIS-equipped replacement.

the R6 sucks for hybrid vs the R. No custom video modes. Maybe that is a way of canon telling us the R6 isnt for video shooters also it has less MP. So it isnt really a replacement.

I finally gave up on canon releasing a high megapixel body and upgraded my Fujifilm GFX 50s to a GFX 100s. If canon ever releases a high megapixel body I’ll still be interested though. I’ve already got the RF lenses to go with it. The 100s is incredible for landscape photography although limited in lens versatility…

What’s interesting here is that the certification agency actually named THREE cameras, i.e.126841, 126842 and 126801.

126801 is the code name for the 90D.

Could this be a misprint? Could there actually be THREE new cameras registered?

A lower cost FF RP replacement seems to be coming. That puts the R6 price is about 3X the RP replacement. A FF priced in between would make sense. Probably not the R (since it's s the oldest), so that would mean yet another FF R series body.

In my opinion, the R6 is a misunderstanding. Canon just didn't have a high-resolution sensor at that time. This is a competitor to the Sony A 7III camera, which is expected to be updated (according to rumors) with a 33 megapixel matrix. I understand that many will disagree with me! They have the right to do so! :)
