Canon executive announces next R camera will be an amateur one, with new "concept lenses"
3

In an interview with imaging resource, A Canon executive stated that the next camera will be a consumer camera due to the high demand from amateur enthusiasts for a FF camera.

"We are developing multiple EOS R cameras now but due to varying levels of preferred features we are likely to launch an amateur model next to let a large group of customers step up and enjoy full-frame image quality. Have no doubt that a professional model is coming, but perhaps it may not be the next model we introduce."

The new lens mount will also allow them to develop "new-concept" lenses, though he did not specify what they mean.
