A recent rumor claims that Canon has a major announcement that could take place this month. Now according to a report from Canon Watch, it seems that the upcoming camera announcement from Canon could be for a budget EOS R model that could be priced around the $1,600 mark.
Now we know that $1,600 isn’t exactly cheap, but it will be cheaper than the current EOS R offering and it is pretty affordable as far as full-frame mirrorless cameras are concerned. This is actually a bit of a surprise as most of the rumors we have been hearing so far have been talking about a high-end EOS R camera with a 100MP sensor.
Canon has been rumored to launch two EOS R bodies this year, so we suppose that one of them being a budget offering doesn’t come as a surprise. Canon launched the first EOS R camera last year which apparently was not the flagship model and is actually a mid-ranger, which is why the rumors are claiming that the company might actually have a budget and high-end model to cater to the different needs and budgets of various photographers.
Details about this budget EOS R are scarce at the moment, so take this report with a grain of salt for now but do check back with us in the middle of the month if you’d like more updates.
