If Canon says so that must be true.

I find it strange people are surprised the R3 has sold well. It only looks bad because the Z9 looks so exceptionally good. Even today if you have expensive EF or RF lenses it's likely the only choice for many people.

I don't want to be negative, but to me the value prop of the R3 for 1dxIII users is not that great, especially when rumors about an R1 coming soon are starting to show up.

Many of the remaining Canon DSLR owners have already moved to the excellent R5... and there also, the value of the R3 isn't that obvious.

So yes, I would be surprised if the R3 sold well and the available public data indicates that it doesn't.
