7 Canon EOS R cameras in 2021? 100MP, pro, APS-C & cine bodies, RP replacements

Canon will be releasing seven R-system cameras in 2021, according to a new report, including the much-anticipated high resolution and professional bodies. 

Since the release of the original Canon EOS R there have been persistent rumors of a version with as many as 100 megapixels, which would effectively replace the Canon EOS 5DS series. There have also been longstanding stories about a mirrorless replacement for the flagship Canon EOS-1D X Mark III, both of which are reputedly due to arrive next year.
