I continue to receive little bits and pieces of information in regards to future RF mount cameras. I have attempted to piece together what is coming for the RF mount camera lineup based on the information from multiple known and anonymous sources.
A new entry-level camera to replace the EOS RP
This camera will be cheaper than the current EOS RP camera body.
A second body above the EOS RP replacement
There will be a big price gap between the EOS RP replacement and the EOS R6 at $2499. I have been told a second camera will fit between these two bodies. It won’t be an “EOS R Mark II”.
There will be an APS-C RF mount camera body
I’m pretty sure that this is going to happen sometime in 2021. Hold tight for some smaller lenses for folks that want a nice and compact APS-C system.
A high-resolution EOS R5 type body
One of the worst kept secrets is that Canon will announce a high-megapixel RF mount camera. The latest I am told is that it’s an R5 body with “twice the resolution”. I would suspect video features won’t be front and center for such a camera body.
A flagship RF mount camera
The Tokyo Olympics appear to be a go, and I expect we’ll see some kind of a flagship RF mount camera body announcement.
Cinema EOS cameras with the RF mount
There will be a Cinema EOS C50 and a Cinema EOS C90 likely coming in the first half of 2021.
There will likely be more talk about the EOS R lineup in early 2021. I think we’re done with new camera bodies in 2020.
More to come…
