Yes, very. Hmmm will there be an even higher level R1 someday?

That's very interesting. If the R3 name is correct, it's a strong implication that Canon doesn't think the current level of mirrorless technology is good enough to have the honour of carrying the 'R1' label.

I think it's more a response to Sony, rather than "not good enough to be an R1"

It'll be 24-ish MP in line with 1DXIII/A9II, and Canon have made the decision to keep the R1 name for an A1 competitor.

Canon R3 looks good: next gen eye controlled AF?

Looks good, almost what we could have expected to be the R1, instead is "only" the R3, it means for Canon high end has also another step available in a relatively short period of time.

3 is a magic number for Canon, the EOS 3 was considered a mini EOS 1, let's see what features this camera has to offer above the R5, speed? resolution? both? or something speciali like next generation eye controlled AF?

I’m thinking this is the R5s, high MP camera that has been rumored.

It looks like maybe the 1ds reborn.

I tend to agree with this.  Canon (and the industry as a whole) has quite a ways to go yet before reaching Eye Detect nirvana, if the R5 is any indicator that is.

Perhaps the new R3 will sport dual DIGIC 10 processors?  A faster sensor readout?  Dual CFe slots?  Any guesses on retail?

If you have to ask you can’t afford it 😬

They made R5 to be a continuation of 5d series; then the R6 as a mirrorless 6D. So, it's more likely for them to release a R1 as a milc twin of the 1D series?

R3 in this body doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever!
It's like someone has photoshoped two different models into one.
OR!
There are two Pro-oriented bodies: one cheaper as a middle finger to the A1?
But whatever it is, I absolutely dig the design, it reminds me of 1DC.

LOL, actually a lot of truth to that (in my case at least).

Not too keen about the built-in grip anyway. I’ve found I don’t need one for birding, and prefer the weight savings there. For other types of shooting I really like having one mounted however.  Hmm, maybe it’ll accept the beefier battery tho.

Interesting ergonomic choices, if the image is real (and I think it is). Those top buttons are all recessed and accessible only from the back, it seems....

I highly doubt this is a Photoshopped image.  Nokishita has an impeccable track record and typically only posts information from highly reliable sources that they have vetted and can confirm is true.

I think so too. This may very well be a 1DX style camera, very fast with moderate resolution and robust body. But as Sony has showed already, you can have a lot of resolution and speed in same package and then throw in very advanced video features... that's what I think should be the R1. And I wouldn't be surprised if it costs 10k€.

Re: Nokishita: Canon R3

This R3 could have the rumored 20-21 Mpix global shutter sensor, with QuadPixelAF, dedicated to sports and any fast subjects.

Maybe Canon can't release now an 8k global-shutter sensor with QuadPixelAF, and that it's still in laboratories for the next flagship R1 (or maybe the R1 will be a compromise between highres classical rolling-shutter sensor and fast enough readout, compared to A1, eg 1/250s).

With 20 Mpix only, the R3 could not compete directly with Z9 and A1, but could be faster than them. That will be the only argument.

Let's wait for the price too ! Canon could sell the R3 about $5500, just to be under the others for the moment, before the R1 arrives at $8000 !!!

I now we know why they never made a 3D (obviously), they were waiting for the R series to be born...LOL. Will there be a R2 (D2)?

Maybe the R3 is the Rumored 90-ish Megapixel Camera - Just a Guess

As I understand it based on Canon History:

1=Sports/Action/Speed generally with moderate resolution and the "most pro." As in 1DX with 20 megapixels and $6,500.  I'm guessing this is the one for Global Shutter mirrorless.

5=High-Resolution but generally with less speed and/or focus tracking. As in 5D with 30M and $2,500 or the 5Ds with 50M.

6=Lower resolution and slightly crippled version of the 5 (ala the 6D and R6)

7=APS-C size sensor with 5-like features (as the 7D)

This leaves R3 as a wild card. My guess (only a guess) by a process of elimination, will be for a super-high-resolution camera line. Such as the rumored 90-ish megapixels with less video capability.
