It looks like the resolution of the sensor in the Canon EOS R3 has been confirmed at 24mp. It looks like EXIF data that made it out of Tokyo Olympics images have made their way to the Canon Rumors Forum.
The EXIF data shows an image size of 6000×4000 pixels, which puts us at 24mp.

As I asked in the other thread, could these cameras not be restricted in firmware to output max 24 MP JPG files?
I have never seen that happen before. Anything is possible, but I don't think you hand these cameras out to people under NDAs with an announcement around the corner and gimp them.

It seems a little conspiratorial to me but the thing that makes me think it might be possible is the video resolution. Full width DCI 4K doesn’t divide nicely into 6,000 pixels.

I do hope you are right and they have cooked these numbers.
On the negative side I like my 5DMkIV and a 30Mp R3 would make it redundant!

It could all be preparing a big reveal for the launch... all the pro sports photographers who said more than 20mp would be too slow have just shot the Olympics with a 45mp camera, set to output M jpegs ;)

I guess Jeff Cable exported without scrubbing the exif - oops or intentional??
