Update: I’m getting mixed information as to whether or not it will be an official announcement tomorrow or just more information about the Canon EOS R3.

Canon will also announce the RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM lens on the same day.

Fingers crossed for a reasonable selling price. After forking out for the 1dx mkiii last year the chances of persuading the boss that this is a must have could be difficult especially if its over £5k.

Seriously, a dream camera body for me however I just got the R6 and that will have to suffice for 6-10 years, now that I am in semi retirement. Those of you who do go this route enjoy, please review & share share share.

I hope they have various FPS rates for the electronic shutter usage - 30 fps if forced would be way too fast for me if it's the only choice.
Hopefully the eye tracking AF is a *new* "game changer". They're on a roll with great AF and I hope it continues here!
Other than that, this seems to be a great body! I hope it's not too expensive - well, yes, that is such a relative term! :sneaky:

Glad to hear it is being announced at the end of June. A bit sooner than I anticipated. Hopefully, this means that it will ship in late August / early September at the latest. Would be thrilled to see it released in early August.

Anything under 30.2 MP is a child's play thing.
I just kept thinking "please let it be more than 30MP". Now, here we are at 30.1.

But even if it is "just" 30MP, I am sure it will be fabulous. Just not quite as exciting for getting close to birds, but hopefully even better AF and image quality to make up for it.
