the high resolution DSLR were named 5dR and 5ds.whats the point of an R5s.
Given that Canon is now copying their DSLR line up in terms of numbers by replacing the 5d with R5 and 6d (R6), it makes most sense of naming a high resolution camera R5s.
There’s no way Canon will release an R2 as high mega Pixel Camera because people would expect a different camera body and feature to differentiate it from the R5. This would cause a lot of R&D costs and given that it will be niche camera, they won’t do that. They’ll take the great ergonomics of the R5, put in a different sensor and name it R5s or R5R(es). The fun thing is: people will love it
R2 is a possible name for a camera, no doubt about it. But it won’t be the rumored high res one.
