By on

The Canon EOS R1 will be the next flagship RF mount mirrorless camera. According to the latest Canon rumors, the upcoming flagship full frame mirrorless camera EOS R1 may not coming until 2024.

Canon Rumors reports that the Canon may delay the release of the EOS R1 until the Paris 2024 Summer Olympics, which will be hosted in France in 2024. As a result we expect the Canon EOS R1 camera to be tested in winter games and be ready and to be released before the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, France.

The delay in the release of the Canon EOS R1 is because Canon plans to expand the RF mount lineup with more affordable cameras first. It’s also possible that the Canon EOS R5S will be released before the flagship EOS R1. More Canon EOS R1 Rumors after the break!
