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.

They probably don’t know what they’re thinking either. I’m pretty sure they became one of the most successful camera companies in the world through sheer guesswork and blind luck.

Canon seems to have a knack for entering late and buying themselves some time with a pretty good "placeholder". That seems to be what the R was.
