The upcoming Canon EOS R3 has been spotted out in the field – actually, it has been spotted sunbathing on a beach in Cornwall, England, where the G7 Summit on climate change was being held. 

With the camera clearly in the hands of professionals and Canon ambassadors for testing, there have also been leaks that the Canon EOS R3 will pack a 30MP image sensor – which would eclipse the resolution of the current crop of best professional cameras, such as the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III (20.1MP), Nikon D6 (20.8MP) and Sony A9 II (24.2MP).
