Rumor: Is this Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera?

If you’ve been reading news about Nikon’s mirrorless cameras and wondering when Canon will issue a response, then you’ll be keen to read what Nokishita has unveiled. Dubbed the Canon EOS R, the full-frame camera is supposed to be released with four lenses to start – the RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM, the RF 50mm F1.2L USM, the RF 28-70 F2L USM, and the RF 24-105mm F4L IS USM. All four should be fairly compact given that the largest RF28-70mm F2L USM measures 103.8mm x 139.8mm and weighs 1430g.

The EOS R compared to what looks to be a 5D.

The camera itself measures 135.8 x 98.3 x 84.4mm and weighs 660g (including battery and SD card). The overall body design looks similar to their outstanding designs, just slightly wider. There will of course be an EF-EOS R mount adapter available at launch, and it seems there’s a power saving mode available that will stretch battery life from 370 shots to 450 shots on a fully charged LP-E6N battery.

From an official specification sheet that Nokishita managed to uncover, it appears the EOS R will have a 30.3MP sensor, an expanded ISO range of 100-102400, and an incredible 5,655 selectable AF points. Given that Dual Pixel CMOS technology is going to be applied in the camera; that should make for very speedy autofocus to go with the maximum continuous shooting rate of 8.0fps (One-shot AF mode).
