Canon plans to introduce a new very high end mirrorless camera that will compete against the A1 and A9II cameras. It will be interesting to see if Sony has any plan to answer to it.
The EOS R3 is the direct competitor to the Nikon Z 9. We expect Canon to announce the development of the Canon EOS R3 very soon, most likely within April 2021.
We think the Canon EOS R3 might be one of the professional EOS R cameras on EOS-1D X level we were expecting. So, no EOS R1? Or will the Canon EOS R1 be even more pro-oriented? The EOS R3 has the ergonomics and the vertical grip of the EOS 1D lineup, and shows all external signs of a professional camera. The EOS R3 might be a professional sports camera, and so let some room for the EOS R1. A professional sport camera would perfectly fit with the Olympics this year. The right lenses are also on their way. We do not think the EOS R3 is the anticipated high resolution EOS R camera.
Here is the brochure:
The lens will be announced on April 22.

Here are the leaked images and specs of the new Tamron 150-500mm F / 5-6.7 Di III VC VXD lens that will be announced on April 22:
- 25 elements in 16 groups
- minimum shooting distance 0.6m (wide angle) /1.8m (telephoto)
- maximum shooting magnification 1: 3.1 (wide angle) / 1: 3.7 (telephoto)
- filter diameter 82mm, size φ93×209.6mm
- weight 1725g
- tripod mount 155g.
That’s a nice lens and surely cheaper than the Sony 200-600mm FE.
