This new Canon EOS RP looks interesting for the more budget conscious - apparently it'll have better 4K than the R [much less of a crop], expected to be priced around $1500 and using possibly the sensor from the 6DII. No doubt it won't have the same build, and it'll probably lack some features of the R, but for those wanting a cheaper way into FF ML it certainly seems to be priced nicely
I was hoping for something above the EOS-R rather than below it, but I think this makes sense from Canon's point of view in the light of their 2018 end-of-year results https://www.canonrumors.com/canon-i...nd-thoughts-on-the-industry-and-future-goals/
Given the gloom and doom of their CEO's predictions last week, Canon seems in reasonably robust form. They're obviously pleased with how the EOS-R has gone down and are pushing forward on FF mirrorless where margins are better. A higher-end model will follow, perhaps when there are more RF lenses (on the way) available to maximise profits.
Meanwhile, the 5D4 is under £1700 grey...
