Canon has confirmed that we will see its excellent eye control autofocus in more cameras going forward, but unfortunately, it doesn't sound like any of these cameras will be out anytime soon.

Eye control autofocus is one of the best features of the Canon EOS R3, although it debuted way back in the 90s, while Canon was still making 35mm film cameras, in the Canon EOS 5. Although naturally, it has got a little more sophisticated since then.
