Worth it to wait for next EOS R or just buy A7iii now?

Given the recent Canon executive interview, looks like the next canon EOS R will be aimed at amateurs/enthusiasts who are looking to make the jump into FF mirrorless. This is precisely my situation.

My use is mainly for toddler/family, but some landscape/street photo when we do get to travel.


1. They are working on IBIS, which is very helpful for an amateur/enthusiast.

2. They are working to improve the 4k video without severely crippling cropping it, which is pretty important for me.

3. Competitive pricing of around $1200-1300 for an entry FF mirrorless, okay with decreasing to 24mp

4. Possibly release in 1Q? 2Q at the latest?

My guess is probably all the above minus the uncropped 4k video, maxed at 30 fps and price will be closer to $1500-1700.

What are your thoughts?
