While Canon seems to have abandoned plans for an EOS R5 Mark II – at least for now – it hasn’t forgotten about creating a new flagship. Rumours about a hypothetical Canon EOS R1 have been around for years. While many thought the EOS R3 would become the new Canon flagship mirrorless camera, Canon has denied that this is the case. But we are still waiting for Canon to announce the EOS R1.
In an interview with Phototrend at CP+ 2023, though, Canon has said they haven’t forgotten about the EOS R1. Although there’s been no solid release date – or even a vague release date – Canon says it’s in development and will be coming… eventually. I suspect we may not hear even a hint of an announcement until either the very end of this year or early next year in anticipation of the 2024 Olympics.
