Canon "actively" considering APS-C RF mount camera (report)

UPDATE: We've heard rumors of an APS-C Canon RF mount camera for quite a while – and now there's a little more fuel being added to the fire. According to a new rumor from Canon Rumors, Canon has apparently "actively been doing market research with select pros and others to see if there is a real demand for such a camera". 

Interestingly, it seems that if Canon did produce an APS-C RF mount camera, the camera manufacturing giant wouldn't produce specific APS-C RF mount lenses. Assumedly, an APS-C EOS R camera would simply use the full frame RF mount lenses already available – or use EF mount lenses via an adapter.
