A new mount Canon RF called Canon EOS R7
It's apparently being tested in the wild ahead of its 2021 release, and is expected to be the first of its kind to feature an APS-C sensor. According to reliable Canon rumors, two different sources have revealed that "an RF-mount camera equipped with an APS-C sensor is in the wild with a select group of photographers", one of the sources claims that the device "looks almost identical to the Canon EOS R6". The Canon EOS R6 is one of the newer additions to Canon's line of RF mounts that currently come with full frame sensors. These tend to be found on larger, professional-grade cameras, but have long been rumored to be an RF mount camera with an APS-C sensor
smaller may be in the works for sport shooters. This camera, tentatively referred to by Canon Rumors as the Canon EOS R7, now appears to be in the works. The site previously claimed in October that an APS-C RF mount camera would arrive in the "second half of 2021", so it's certainly not imminent, but these new rumors strongly suggest a Canon EOS R7 is in the works. preparation for next year.

The Canon EOS R7 is an apt name for an RF mount APS-C camera
, since in many ways it would be a mirrorless equivalent of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (an APS-C digital SLR). However, the EOS R7 is expected to be a much more complete camera than the digital SLR of 2017. In fact, according to Canon rumors, it "expects the specs to be almost identical" to those of the Canon EOS R6, a device which we've described as "one of the best all-rounders you can get." "If that's true, we should expect to see at least 12fps burst shooting, in-body image stabilization, and the ability to shoot 4K/60p video. To keep the price lower than the €249 / €9 / 2499AU € ordered by the EOS R4499, Canon may also include features such as a lower resolution, 6 million dot viewfinder, but this is not at this time just conjecture, the big question is whether Canon will also release dedicated RF-S lenses for a new APS-C RF Mount camera.Back in the days of DSLR heights in 2,36, Canon followed up its line of EF lenses with a line of EF-S variants designed specifically for cameras with smaller APS-C image sensors. So far, though, it doesn't look like Canon is doing the same with spiritual successors like the Canon EOS R2003.In a previous article, a Canon Rumors source said there are "no plans for RF lenses" but there would be some that they would be suitable for APS-C and full frame cameras. . This seems logical given that Canon already has the EOS M mirrorless system, led by models like the Canon EOS M7 Mark II, which feature APS-C sensors. But we'll have to wait until Canon officially introduces its mirrorless cards in 50 before we really know how an EOS R2021 might stack up against rivals like the Nikon Z7.
