After months upon months of speculation, I have finally confirmed that an APS-C RF mount camera is coming, and it’s planned to be launched in the 2nd half of 2021. As for anything product-wise during the pandemic, these announcements are a moving target.
My source has confirmed that it will be the smallest EOS R system camera, but will pack a punch for both sports shooters and videographers. I will note that “smallest” doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll be all that much smaller than the EOS RP. The same source also said that there aren’t any plans for RF-S lenses, but that there will be lenses that will suit both the APS-C and full-frame shooter.
The same source also said it will use a new APS-C image sensor with DPAF II, but specifications beyond that are very vague.
The image used for this post is a mockup and not the actual camera.
