.... I don't see how a lower spec would fit into the range either. Unless perhaps a crop-sensor? But that would just be a larger bodied M5 - I think that Canon Rumors may be wrong on this one....
Is it possible that the long-awaited 7D Mk2 replacement (or the 90D which is taking its time) will be mirrorless? It would seem to be the only logical explanation for there being a ‘lower spec’ model in the pipeline, if such a thing is actually in the planning. I take what Canon Rumours say with a pinch of salt though as they seem to have as little of an idea as the rest of us.I'm also struggling to think how a lower end EOS R might be specified. Assuming the next EOS R model is indeed FF, the only other lower end FF sensor that has dual pixel focus is the 26 MP sensor in the 6D Mk2, it hardly seems to be worth the effort to re-engineer this sensor for the sake of market differentiation. It would be hard to reduce the burst rate still further, maybe things like the slide bar might disappear, no 4K, lower resolution viewfinder, smaller buffer. The more taken out, the more important the price point is likely to be and those buying into the new model on a budget won't be looking at the 50mm F1.2 or F2 zoom lenses in the short term! Canon surely wouldn't produce and EOS R with an APSC sensor to sit above the M5, would they?
