Oh, that was yesterday's news, apparently.
Canon has announced the R3 development today. It will sit between the R5 (that camera that matches or outperforms the Sony A1) and a future R1. It will place great emphasis on "superb autofocus performance and speed, with fast-moving subjects".
Canon says this camera can shoot at 30 FPS with full-time Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus active and auto exposure. Canon says that the EOS R3’s subject detection AF will offer new recognisable subjects for its AF system, which it says will bolster its focusing capabilities during challenging shooting conditions. Canon also says that the electronic viewfinder (EVF) will feature the ability to select the initial area for AF tracking simply by looking at the viewfinder, called Eye Control AF (hello EOS 3). Canon also says that it will have a stacked back side illuminated sensor.
My guess is that this camera will be available for professionals for the Olympic games held in Japan this year.
