A prolific camera-tech leaker claims that there is a new unit called the EOS R3 in the works at Canon. It will allegedly be mirrorless, yet be quite like the 1D series in terms of looks. Therefore, the putative new premium device might be best suited to high-speed, high-action subjects, which would make a rumored debut at the 2021 Olympic Games more plausible.

The eminent camera tipster Nokishita has posted what looks like a unit of the Canon EOS 1D line at first look. However, closer inspection reveals the name "R3" clearly emblazoned on its chassis. This, then, is projected as the OEM's latest high-end mirrorless camera.

The alleged EOS R3 has leaked amid speculation that it will be touted by Canon as the new go-to for use-cases such as sports or nature photography. This is mainly based on its possible first look and the prominent, reassuring-looking battery grip clearly visible therein.

Therefore, it may make sense for Canon to debut this putative new unit at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics. Nokishita has yet to reveal anything about its potential specs or standalone price yet; however, the account has also posted some new and extensive lenses ostensibly meant for use alongside it.

The leaker also notes that these RF400mm (F2.8 L IS USM) and RF600mm (F4 L IS USM) models have retail prices already. - which almost inevitably require bracing for, being US$11,999 and $12,999 respectively. They may also be showcased at the rumored EOS R3's July-August 2021 debut.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations.
