I reported back in July that we would finally see the Canon EOS R3 officially announced in September 2021, after a false alarm of a June announcement.
There are now a few things lining up that seem to point to an announcement on or around September 14, 2021. I haven’t yet confirmed this date, but it’s becoming apparent that we don’t have long to wait to finally see the EOS R3 in all of its glory.

An announcement is one thing but! When will buyers actually get their hands on one of these bodies for example the not so recent now but, lens such as the Canon RF 100-500mm f4.5-7.1L IS USM are still pre-order in the UK

What about any of the long rumours Cinema cameras considering NAB is in a months time?

The R3 can’t be the only September announcement unless it has some very lofty video credentials.

That backorder situation is the same everywhere, even in India most camera products are back ordered.

Rumors are already starting to swirl around an a9 III.
I think Sony would wait to see how the R3 does in the market before they announce anything.
I can't see Nikon making any such announcements until long after the Z9 is well established.

Both these things could be true.
I do expect the R3 to be pretty adept at video.

I think they drew the anticipation about this camera too long. I can appreciate that some of this was because they wanted testing at the Olympics. I am happy to continue with my R5 and wait for an R1.

Didn't realize that it was an "ask the audience" question. If we knew which things were "lining up" and pointing to September 14th, we could probably be of more help.
I would be really interesting in learning what will be announced alongside the R3.

Yeah. Are we getting any new lenses? That 18-45 sounds interesting.

I've long since written off this camera. If they surprise us all and announce it with 45MP, then I'll reinvest and buy! But 24 MP or 30MP won't cut it for me.

I'm sure many others will be happy, but not pour moi!

Oh, come on, Canon. Bring it on.

Craig, sorry, I know rumors are your business but I would like R3 rumors to end - soon!

I'm not sure why, but I've never quite felt the hype and anticipation start to go in the opposite direction. Something about this camera I just want it to come out already and then go away. It's been an odd roll out of info and sneak peaks.

Yes more lens options or even more availability of lenses would be a nice announcement.

It does seem really drawn out. Also, what I find odd is that we haven't seen a solid leak on the outstanding issues yet. Nothing from Nokishita. I don't see EXIF data from the olympics as being enough to tell me that the camera is 24mp (although it very well may be) as this could represent a crop mode. It could actually have multiple crop modes for all we know. With that being said, I need a fast camera. The R5 just doesn't cut it for moving objects for me. Yeah, once I get something locked, it's great, but I've lost several shots because I couldn't get a lock and others because I couldn't get enough shutter without destroying the image with high ISO noise. In the DSLR world I was more than happy shooting my 1DX II @ 20mp instead of the 36 on the 5D IV for the same reason (as I'm sure many other wildlife photographers were) so if it's 24, I'll be fine. I still have my R5 for extreme cropping.

I've really gone cold on RF for now, the lack of roadmaps and constant drip-feed of 'teasers' have put me off. I'll stick with EF for a few more years, I've actually started adding lenses again, and keep an eye on Nikon.

Only one thing is missing: what dynamics of the sensor
I suppose we will know as soon as the tech geeks get their hands on it.
Canon normally doesn't specify much about DR of the sensor.
But they state about the sensitivity of the AF. Like the EOS R5 AF Working Range EV -6 to 20.
And I suppose the R3 can handle darker situations.

Yup. I knew some photographers who were tired of waiting and jumped on the a1. I can’t imagine this was a great idea by Canon. That being said, I don’t work in the marketing sector ‍♀️
