Canon camera rumors have really been swirling around a lot lately. Along with the five new RF lenses leaked earlier this week, we’ve been hearing about both a possible 8K EOS R as well as a new cheaper prosumer option - which looks to be this Canon EOS RP.

Regardless of quotes from Canon Group president Fujio Mitarai regarding Canon shifting away from consumer cameras in the future, new leaks revealing this new Canon EOS RP includes some of the first images, specs and a possible price point.

The Canon EOS RP


As you can see in the image above, the Canon EOS RP looks pretty similar to the Canon EOS R but is set to include a confirmed 26.2MP sensor. Via leaked information from Nokishita, some key confirmed features include:

Canon EOS RP Price

We’ve also been teased with a rumored initial price point for the Canon EOS RP being at either $1,599 or even $1,499 (via Canon Rumors) for the body only.

Which, if true and once confirmed, should put the EOS RP a good $700 to $800 cheaper than the current Canon EOS R and in a more competitive position against the crowded 4K full frame mirrorless marketplace.
