R7, R10: Rational expectations, price guess

From already leaked rumoured specs, it can be surmised that:

  • R7: Similar/same sensor as 90D and M6 Mark II, probably with tweaks and optimisations in electronics to enable faster readout. Specs suggest it is no better than X-T4, at least on paper.                                                                                                         
    • Price: 90D was $1200 and M6 Mark II was $850. Even Fuji X-T3 is selling for $1000 now. R7 may at most be $1500.                                                                          
  • R10: Similar/same sensor as M50, with some tweaks to enable faster readout. Specs suggest it is an incremental update.                                                                              
    • Price: Certainly less than $1000. May even be $850.                                                 

It is likely that R7 was planned to be a fusion of 90D and M6 Mark II into one, a kind of mirrorless 7D mark III, which might have released earlier, had not so many delays occurred on global scale.

Main improvements are likely to be latest software, colours and AF from R bodies, and DIGIC X processor.

So....these are iterative releases on existing bodies and sensors. Some are predicting an insane price of $2500 but that is not possible without a new stacked sensor. At present, only the R3 has a stacked sensor. They surely won't put a higher megapixel stacked sensor in APS-C body at lower price, that too so soon.
