It looks like the rumors over the last few months are coming to fruition shortly. Canon will announce two camera bodies very soon alongside the recently uncovered Canon RF 24-50mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM. The long rumored Canon EOS R8 will be announced, along with the Canon EOS R50. If we’re going by the information in

See full article...
Yes! A new entry-level full-frame body is coming! :) I'm so excited (but not doing the dance just yet :) )
1.499 $ sounds more like a slightly upgraded RP successor to me instead of an true R successor. Possible Canon is merging those cameras to one offering, meaning there will be no R9 (RP successor).

If the R8 is a true R successor, than...

Please upgrade to...:
- 8 FPS mechanical with full focusing ability... of course, more is welcome if possible at that price point.
- better AF such as R7
- joystick or dial instead of a Touch Bar
- maybe IBIS --> to me, having no IBIS would not be a dealbreaker I guess

Please keep:
- the top dial
- the sensor (it's old, I know, but it still renders beautiful images and could cut costs - also 30 MP is a sweet spot imho)
- the ergonomics of the R
- possibility to attach the BG-E22 and therefore
- the battery (good enough for 500 pics...)

I have never had a camera with a top LCD. What makes it such a good feature on the R and R5?
I actually use it a lot to check my settings while shooting or using the camera on a tripod. Also, I don't like the wheel of the R6. But that's just my personal taste.
