Canon Rumors reports that the anticipated Canon R1 won’t come this year, leaving the field to the Sony A1 and the eventual Nikon Z7 to compete with its R5 camera.

A separate rumor indicates that two new cameras will come out this week, geared to “new segments.”

Speculation among forum dwellers has focused on a high-resolution (even higher resolution) variant of the R5, with the more wishful thinking hoping for a renewed 7-series featuring a crop sensor.

Just as likely, if Canon does put out a camera addressing a new market, it will be a trick out of its low-end consumer bag, such as a printing picture camera or something that can latch onto your purse.

In addition, an “exciting” new body will be coming out in the second half of 2021.
