*Update* We have confirmed that the camera will be called the “EOS R7” and it will come this year, Q4 being most likely.
There were rumors that a Canon EOS “R7” (We're calling it that for now) would have been announced by now, in a ‘normal' world anyway.
We have been told that the Canon EOS R7 is now scheduled for a Q4 of 2022 announcement. This tends to fall in line with the usual late August/Early September announcements that Canon is known for.
For the moment, specifications are scarce and we're unable to confirm what we do know at this time. Let's hope that changes in the near future.
I'm happy to hear some news about the "R7". Really pushing my patience with that camera. Even Micro Four Thirds and the OM-1 have started to sound attractive (just wish that 150-400mm F4.5 TC wasn't so crazy expensive).
I have the R6 because I couldn't wait to try that Animal AF any more. Great camera, but fullframe is not what I want to build my general all-purpose kit around.
[PS. I'm not answering comments that I should buy fullframe and crop. We have already been through that discussion at least a 100 times before]
Oh well, should have cash in hand when it finally drops.
Shortest interval of time until the R7 is announced and I smash the preorder button in about 123 zeptoseconds.
