Full-frame Canon for $1.500?

Canon EOS RP rumored

The Intarweb’s rumor mills are at it again and this time it’s Canon’s upcoming (or not) entry level mirrorless full frame EOS R.

Here’s what we have so far:

  • Name: Canon EOS RP (that was originally the rumored name for the professional variant of the EOS R, hence the “P” in the moniker)
  • Price: between $1.500 and $1.600 (body only)
  • Sensor: likely a variant of the 6D II’s chip (yes, the old one)
  • Resolution: around 20-24 megapixel
  • IBIS: no, never, this is Canon we are talking about
  • Video: 4K 30p without crop
  • Memory card slots: 1
  • Release date: Feb. 14, 2019

Fun thing is that with this specs and a this price point you might wonder: Why would anybody even consider the EOS R at twice the price? Canon would have to cripple the camera so as not to cannibalize the EOS R sales.

They could…

  • leave out the status display
  • remove ports for mike and phones
  • lower the EVF resolution
  • remove some control dials and the touch-bar
  • make it a fixed monitor
  • slow it down

Let’s see what surfaces over the next week, could be interesting. If there were any truth to all this, we’d expect the price of the EOS R to come down significantly because dealers will want to unload their stock as quickly as possible.
