Canon EOS Rumors

I may have been wrong about the EOS R3 official announcement date

This site contains affiliate links to products and services. We may receive a commission for purchases made through these links.

On Friday I posted that the Canon EOS R3 would be announced alongside the RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM on June 29, 2021. However, over the weekend I received contradicting information about the announcement date.

So that means there are 3 possibilities for the announcement. One, the announcement will take place tomorrow. Two, we’ll get more information about the camera but not the official announcement. Thirdly, we hear nothing at all.

I apologize for jumping the gun and not getting further confirmation of the information. I will obviously provide an update if I do get confirmed information.

Still finding my R5 to be as much as I can handle, fortunately!

Feeling the disappointment of others, though!

Ha, no worries, stuff happens! Look at it this way - if it's the worst thing that happens to you this week, it's still an awesome week!

It will be announced when it's ready . However, given the Olympic dates, it will likely be introduced sooner than later unless the strategy is for only select pros to use it at the games which seems like an opportunity lost.

Considering that some photographers already have the camera in hand, would be weird not to announce it soon. Unless all those people got dummy models.

Not a big deal. I would rather get a R3 after it's been rigorously tested in the field than be one of thousands of Beta testers. On the plus side, it gives my savings account time to replenish after getting the R5 and a few RF L lenses, grip, and extra batteries.

LOL, no worries - this happens. I used the info, however, to go ahead and buy 2 more LP-E19 batteries since I parted ways with mine during the sale of the 1DXII.

I got the info from my camera store that some Canon product will be announced tomorrow in the morning (European time). They believe it will be the 14-35/4 L.

Now Canon has a couple of extra days to figure out which supertelephoto lenses it will release with the R3. The 14-35mm never seemed like the most sports/action lens to showcase with the R3.
It also seemed weird that no date/time for the release was appearing on the Canon website.
Obviously I prefer for the release to be tomorrow, but I did have some doubts. Maybe this is the announcement of the announcement.

You can't be on the cutting edge, as you are here at CanonRumors, providing a platform for insight and thoughtful predictions/rumors of what we can expect to see in the marketplace... AND be spot on correct all the time. Its refreshing to see you're human. Happy shooting!

At first I was ticked, but considering it is 'CANONRUMORS' AND NOT 'CANONTRUTH' I quickly decided being 'ticked' is not warranted. I noticed other websites didn't post anything on the announcement, which threw up a red flag. My guess is we'll hear nothing tomorrow.

It’s being announced tomorrow. There are tons of images online and it’s already in the hands of reviewers.

Maybe a delay means Canon is reconsidering 30 MP. My R5 and 5DS really have me appreciating 45-50 MP and the R5 has me appreciating lots of speedy pixels even more. Yeah, I know, thousands of 30 MP sensors have probably already been run off as have an equal number of Digics, but one can dream.

The MP count was set in silicon a long time ago. They’re not going to reconsider it.
