Rumor: Canon Planning an APS-C Camera With RF Mount?

According to a Canon Rumors‘ source, the Japanese company may be working on an APS-C mirrorless camera with the RF mount. Apparently, the camera would be geared at enthusiasts and would be somewhat similar to their high-end APS-C DSLR cameras like the EOS 7D Mark II.

The source is claiming that Canon is already developing this camera, but it likely won’t be released until 2021, as Canon’s current priority is making additional RF lenses. Apparently, they also don’t plan on working on APS-C RF lenses soon either. This makes total sense, as more non-professional full-frame RF lenses are desperately needed.

Canon has been selling EOS M APS-C mirrorless cameras for a while now, but they were always aimed at beginners. There’s no indication they will stop selling these in favor of APS-C RF cameras even if they release them sometime soon, as the EOS M lineup sells extremely well. That being said, it will be interesting to see whether sales will shift towards APS-C RF cameras once they are released.
