The Canon EOS R3 is a professional full-frame mirrorless camera for sports and action photographers that features a back-illuminated stacked 24.1 megapixel full-frame CMOS imaging sensor. Now we have speculations about the fate of the EOS R3 line, with some suggesting it might be a one-time endeavor. Contrary to this, insider information now reveals that a Canon EOS R3 Mark II is in the pipeline. As the industry witnesses the announcement of Sony’s global shutter A9 III and rumors of Nikon’s Z6 III, Canon appears poised to join the race with the EOS R3 Mark II.
Given that the EOS R3 debuted in November 2021, a successor arriving in 2025 aligns with a typical four-year update cycle. However, enthusiasts are cautioned against delaying their camera purchase decisions based on this information, as the EOS R3 already stands as an impressive device, boasting a full-frame mirrorless configuration with a stacked CMOS sensor and a 24-megapixel capability supporting rapid continuous shooting at 30 frames per second.

Although details remain speculative at this juncture, the prospect of a 2025 release raises questions about the camera’s potential advancements in resolution and continuous shooting capabilities.
