It’s happening: Canon is finally answering our calls for affordable mirrorless cameras

The recent launch of Canon’s mid-range EOS R7 and EOS R10 was great news for those of us who can’t afford to splash out on full-frame flagships – and it looks like the camera giant may follow suit with another temptingly affordable model. .

Reliable canon rumours (opens in new tab) claims that “Canon’s next RF-mount camera is in the field” and will be announced “before November 2022”. Like Canon’s two recent releases, the camera will apparently be another APS-C model and “a small form-factor vlogger” camera that will likely compete with the new Nikon Z30. That means it could also be the long-rumored Canon EOS R100.

Cameras with APS-C sensors are generally more affordable than their full-frame equivalents So the introduction of a third such RF-mount camera following the Canon EOS R7 and EOS R10 would mark a major shift in Canon’s strategy. And a very welcome one in today’s tough financial climate.

Even if you’re not in the market for a vlogging camera, the arrival of another APS-C model will be a good sign for affordable Canon cameras. As our Canon EOS R7 review explains, one of the camera’s few problems is its lack of native lenses. Right now, there are only two RF-S lenses, an 18-150mm and an 18-45mm.
