The rumor I posted last week turned out to be true: Canon is going to launch a new $1599 Canon EOS-RP Full Frame mirrorless camera. This begs the question if Sony will answer with a new lower end model FF camera launch. Or maybe they will just cut the A7III price.
Here are the full Canon EOS-RP leaked images and specs via Nokishita:
26.2 Million Pixels Full Size Sensor
Dual pixel CMOS AF
Continuous shooting performance: 5 frames / sec
ISO sensitivity: 100 to 40000 (equivalent to extended ISO: 50, 51200, 102400)
Organic EL EVF
3.0 type touch panel variable angle liquid crystal
Dual Sensing IS
DLO in camera, RAW development in camera, C-RAW compatible
Size: 132.5 x 85.0 x 70.0 mm
Weight: Approximately 440 g (body only), about 485 g (including batteries?)
Kit lens: RF 24 – 105 mm F 4 L IS USM
Unreported by Nokishita is the announcement date which will be around February 14 (Source CanonWatch).
I think it’s great both Canon and Nikon will announce new gear this month. Sony will have to answer swiftly with new lens and camera releases if they want to steal some headlines from the competition!
