Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera coming on September 5th?


I received some information from a good source and can confirm that Canon will have a press event on September 5th in Shanghai. There is also a second event in Tokyo on or around September 17-22 where people had to already sign NDAs - this could actually be a factory tour similar to the one from Nikon.

CanonRumors now reports that the new Canon full frame mirrorless camera will be called EOS R:

  • Name: Canon EOS R
  • RF Mount (New mount, possible EF compatibility?)
  • No reports of new “RF” lenses being announced alongside the body.
  • Similar ergonomics to the EOS M50 (pictured above)
  • Slightly larger body than the EOS M50
  • Will compete with the Sony A7 III & Nikon Z6
  • 24mp or 28mp (Two different reports)
  • Announcement September 5, 2018
  • Update: a new RF 24-70mm f/2 mirrorless lens could also be announced

Nokishita reports that Canon will also announce a new EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM mirrorless lens.
