A lot more information came in after the weekend’s posting about potential Canon EOS R Mark II specifications.
A known source has told us that the specifications posted did not match up with the next 2 EOS R cameras that are coming in the first half of 2020.
While the source said they couldn’t say too much at this time specification wise, it was mentioned that Canon will be “stepping it up a gear” when it comes to specifications for the next two EOS R bodies.
More to come…

Not matching the CR1-specs sounds like one of those 2 will be the rumored high-MP-body, but for the other one ... :unsure:

Well now I don't know what to think!

I would think something has to be coming near the top of the lineup if not a 5D V - we're getting close to the conclusion of the 4 year renewal cycle on the 5D IV, so I would bet on a spiritual successor at least.

This is CR3? Interesting! I wonder in what way were the specification different? I hope it's not lack of IBIS because Canon users are being left behind in that department, and Canon does need to "step it up".
I know so many want IBIS but all of my lenses have 4-5 stops of stabilization and I use a top quality tripod and monopod.

But, if this new source is to be believed, the 2 EOS R cameras could be:
  • EOS R2 and the high res 5DS2-like model
  • EOS R2 and the speed 1DX3-like model
  • EOS R2 and a megabudget (sub $1k) model that lacks an EVF (you use it like an M6 Mark II)
  • Two high res bodies like 5DS and 5DSR: one with and one without AA filter
  • EOS R2 in two different colors :rolleyes:

Every fast prime except the 85mm f1.4 IS doesn't have IS, and tripods are not practical for a lot of situations. Stop with this nonsense that IBS is unnecessary. Every feature that can help with taking better photos is helpful.

If the message here was just that the previous specs are wrong, why word it so weirdly with the next two bodies?

If the next two are specced aggressively, it probably rules out the cheaper-than-the-RP R and the crop-R. The high res R should be a serious camera from what we see in the M6 II and 1DX III LiveView functionality.

But what other high end bodies are we expecting? I thought an R II / 5D mirrorless was expected for much later in the year. And releasing a mirrorless 1D so soon after the 1DX III would surely upset folks. What's left? A A7s equivalent?

I was just getting comfortable with the specs for the R2. MP and FPS could easily be off and I wouldn't have a problem ... but IBIS? that's a must at least on the high MP body, probably for most on the R2 as well.
Other stuff is pretty safe: digit X, card slots, better EVF, no crop 4k.
Finger's crossed we'll know more soon.

Things are in flux.

The great dSLR sell-off stampede swells. Hold onto your hats.

Hoping against hope CF cards will be in the mix. Sigh...I have so many, two still unopened!
