It’s been a while, but an APS-C equipped EOS R body gets another mention [CR2]

Ever since the Canon EOS R was announced, one of the big questions was whether or not we’d see an APS-C equipped EOS R to replace the EOS 7D Mark II, or if that sensor size would be left for the EOS M line.

A good source tells us that such a camera is in active development at Canon, but likely won’t see the light of day until 2021. More lenses in the RF lineup are a priority over an APS-C body we have been told, but that there definitely would not be “RF-S” lenses developed for a smaller sensor EOS R camera body.

This is the first we’ve heard about such a camera body in a long while, and I do think we’ll eventually see one as a performance model, and not “entry-level”.

There’s not much new here, but I’m glad it gets another mention.
