2022 is scheduled to be “The Year of the Camera Body” from Canon. In addition to the newly announced Canon EOS R5 C Mirrorless Cinema Camera, Canon is also planning to announce about three new RF-mount mirrorless cameras in the second half of 2022:
- An APS-C EOS R model (Canon EOS R7)
- An entry model full frame mirrorless camera (Canon EOS RP Mark II)
- A model between the entry model and the Canon R6 (Canon EOS R Mark II)
Below are what we know so far about these three new Canon RF-mount mirrorless cameras:
Canon EOS R7
Among them, Canon will definitely release an RF mount APS-C format mirrorless camera in 2022, which may incorporate the features of the M50 series and 7D series models. We already reported that the Canon EOS R7 is already undergoing testing in the wild by a select group of photographers. The source claims that the new APS-C RF mount camera will be “directly aimed at sports, wildlife and videography”, to replace the Canon EOS 7D Mark II? You can also see the Canon EOS R7 rumored specifications here.
Canon EOS RP Mark II & EOS R Mark II
Canon is apparently planning to release two new cameras to update the the Canon EOS R and the Canon EOS RP. The first body will be “the most affordable full-frame camera Canon has ever made” and it is expected to use the same sensor as the Canon R6. The second will slot between the EOS RP replacement and the current Canon EOS R6, with a new image sensor, but a lower pixel count than the Canon EOS R5.
