It is now confirmed that Canon will soon announce the development of the Canon EOS R3 mirrorless camera. This is the long-rumored prograde mirrorless camera which I guess in the name of EOS R1. Canon EOS R3 will be a full-frame mirrorless camera that will be positioned at the top level, meaning that it will be direct comptetitor to the Nikon Z9.
I think we may get answers to some of our questions soon, ahead of the development announcement. For example is this flagship EOS R model? The answer will probably be yes, so an EOS R for professionals is waiting for us. In this case, the EOS R3 is a direct competitor of the Nikon Z 9. We expect Canon to announce the development of the Canon EOS R3 very soon, most likely in April 2021.
We can say that the Canon EOS R3 could be one of the professional EOS R cameras at the EOS-1D X level that we have been waiting for. According to the brainstorming above, this camera is the EOS R1, which has been rumored for a long time. The Canon EOS R3 has the ergonomics and vertical grip of the EOS 1D series and shows all the external features of a professional camera. It looks like the EOS R3 camera is coming and the right lenses on the way too. More details after the break!
