Canon EOS-R1 (Mirrorless Version of 1D X Mark III) Rumored for 2021

Here are the first rumors about the possible Canon EOS-R1 model which is expected to be a mirrorless version of the DSLR camera.

The flagship Canon EOS-R1 is expected to arrive in the second half of 2021, just before the Tokyo Olympics 2021 in Summer. As Sony is rumored to announce a new flagship/high-end mirrorless body in 2021,in 2021, this will be Canon’s answer with the EOS-R1.

Although we do not know the features of this new model yet, we can say that it will not use the same sensor as the 1D X Mark III. As a result we expect the Canon EOS-R1 to use a brand new sensor. Other than that it will be a RF mount mirrorless version of the EOS-1D X Mark III DSLR.

Beside the Canon EOS-R1 rumor the company is working on a high-resolution 90MP Canon EOS R5S and a video-oriented Canon EOS R5C mirrorless cameras. Both models are expected to be announced before.

The new Canon EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera is now listed at Adorama and B&HPhoto. The detailed specifications and pricing info are still unknown.
