As details become clearer about Canon's next mirrorless DSLR, the camera was spotted being field tested at the G7 Summit. 

Details have been slowly coming in about Canon's EOS R3 full-frame mirrorless camera. Recently, a Canon representative tweeted a picture of the R3 on display at the G7 Summit. More and more physical copies of this camera have been showing up in the wild for field testing and review, suggesting that release is getting nearer and nearer. With the camera being brought out at such a high-profile event, I'd imagine more official press releases and information will be coming soon. 

The camera, which is said to be a auto-focus powerhouse, with in-lens and IBIS stabilization capabilities that could add up to 8 extra stops of light capturing ability in low-light situations, is now rumored to have a 30MP sensor.

This would be a significant improvement over their current flagship full-frame DSLR, the EOS-1DX Mark III, which touts a 20-ish megapixel sensor. Also, compared to the EOS-R5 which shoots at a stunning 45MP, this camera seems to represent a middle step between the two in a lot of ways. It has a nearly identical form-factor to the 1DX MKIII, and more video and resolution capabilities like the EOS-R5 (though I'm most excited about its rumored internal RAW 4K recording). 

I'll be very intrigued to see the specifics when they come through, and most importantly, where the camera lands on price (last rumored at around $6,000). I'm not sure how accurate that is, but it would seem about right based on that R5/1DX middle-point speculation. 

Canon has an official page up about the camera now with some details.

I was hoping the R3 would be less than the R5 but with eye-focus AF, internal 4K recording in Canon Log, the stacked sensor taking photos at 30fps, and the built-in grip I don't think it'll be possible.
