If you mean that Canon will not release an APS-C R camera because they don't have a APS-C lens like a RF-S... I think that if Canon decided that they need to be in that market, they could easily convert one or two of the existing EF-S designs into a kit lens.
Could someone please explain, how EOS R could be even more lower level? What could be left off? Lower megapixel sensor does not necessarily mean less advanced sensor, right? Or are we talking APS-C EOS R machine here? I thought, that what is coming is lower specced FF body ....
I'd love to see a £2000 option that competes with the Nikon Z6 & Sony A7III.
24mp BSI sensor, IBIS, full frame 4K, 11+ FPS.
6DII sensor, lower resolution EVF, no touch bar, lower fps & AF Points
Pick 1 or two features. I doubt they give it all for that price and that soon.
They are likely to release a lower mode Canon EOS R first.
I'm already entertaining Sony and Panasonic next generation mirrorless camera if the next EOS R is an entry-level camera.
The worrying thing is Canon would happily do that if they could. It seems every release is an attempt at releasing the absolute minimum they can. Such a shame, their outstanding lenses deserve better.No card slots, in-body destabilization, no controls other than the touch bar, m43 sensor, max 480p 1fps with 8x crop.
Sadly I am too. Panasonic, Sony and Nikon are all competing to produce excellent value for money cameras. They have their £2000 ish range with the previously mentioned specs and a £3000 range with the same specs and a high resolution sensor. I really can't work out why Canon fail to offer the same value for money. Trouble is die hard Canon fans look down on me for even suggesting it. The DPReview 1D/5D/6D forum is a prime example of dinosaurs who are content with mediocrity.
I don't think an eos r aps-c body is likely.
there are no aps-c lenses for the eos r, only full frame lenses. i don't believe canon will force us to use full frame lenses (which are more expensive). what are the thoughts of the community on this?
...do not expect any sort of “niche” or “professional” mirrorless cameras prior to the release of more “entry level” products. A $4000+ camera simply doesn’t move anywhere near the volume that a sub $1500 camera would and at the end of the day, Canon needs more RF lens mount equipped cameras out there. So yes, we expect to see a model under the EOS R before we see any sort of high megapixel or “professional” full frame mirrorless camera from Canon.

Just give me the ability to backup RAW files using Bluetooth, while still writing to the card on my EOS R. That’s all I ask.
I’m not here to argue about the EOS R being a pro camera - I Pay my bills with it. My 5Div collects dust now and is ‘just’ a backup body. I’ll happily wait a year or so for the ‘Pro R’, if I get RAW file redundancy.
Please Canon, give me wireless RAW backup!
(I can wish, right?)
The last release was full of surprises that no-one knew about.
Anything can happen.
I for one wont be jumping anywhere for negligible improvements, no ergonomics etc etc
I see far too many Sony shooters looking down fiddling around missing all the shots. Fair enough if you have time.
I prefer to crack away and bring home the goods, get paid and start over.
