Sounds great but what will it cost? Is it supposed to be above the R5?

Yes, above the R5. From reading on the net many are guessing $6k or more.

So it will be an a9II competitor but priced $1500 more? A bit unrealistic. Where does that leave the R1? An $8k camera? Not sure what Canon is thinking here or who will be in the market for such expensive cameras coming out of a global pandemic.

Well, that is more or less what was said about the R5 when it came out at $3900.

I never had any doubts about the R5. Not only was it a superior, mirrorless version to their huge fan favorite workhorse 5D Mark IV, it was only $400 more. The R3 however is an unknown. Its not really a mirrorless 1DX Mark III or even 5Ds, and will be the most expensive R mount camera by far. I dont see it having anywhere near the mainstream success of the R5. It will be more of a niche camera few will be able to afford, priced well above the competition, It will be interesting to see what happens though.

Well, for those looking for the mirrirless "brick" , it looks like this will be it for a while at least. We'll have to see what it does.
