Article blames lack of native lenses. However given the compatability of EF lenses (with adapter) I'm not sure that would be the reason.

I wonder how sales are in north America and Europe.


Canon will need to get the transition of their core customers, i.e. those who use their cameras to make a living, right. All else is peanuts. The R is a good start.

I don't get your logic - this is a small number of users, so what is really the point in getting these to transition while the rest massively switch to Sony?

  • the trend is Sony A7III is the #1 dumped FF MILC on record

Canon EOS RP+R keeper FF sales #1+#2 in Japan (March 2019)

(Sony A7III = #1 FF dumper (buy+dump) sales (repeat buy of any one camera unit = doubles the sale of any single unit) March 2019.

it's obvious those dumping Sony FF A7III (in 2018+2019) in record numbers are massively switching to Canon FF MILCs: 2019 EOS RP or 2018 EOS R

Japan is predominantly Canon buyer/keeper/users territory.
