Only a day after we learned that the Canon EOS R7 could be unveiled in June or July, a new story on a Japanese website indicates that the Canon EOS R7 would be unveiled on May 24.

A separate rumor from reliable leaker Canon Rumors indicates that the pair of cameras and lenses will be announced on May 24, and lists a few likely specs for the EOS R10.

This is fantastic news for Canon enthusiasts who have been waiting for the company to expand its RF-mount body lineup. The crucial word here is ‘options,’ as the same rumor suggests that the Canon EOS R10, as well as two RF-S lenses, might be launched at the same time.

If what Canon Rumors has revealed is true, then it looks like the EOS R10 will be the more affordable of the two, potentially housing a 24.2MP APS-C sensor (as opposed to the EOS R7’s rumored 32.5MP resolution), and capable of top burst speeds of 15fps with the mechanical shutter and 23fps with the electronic one (compared to 15fps/30fps for the R7). Another giveaway that it’s likely going to be affordable is the rumor that it will have just a single UHS-II speed SD card slot.

When it comes to Canon’s mirrorless camera systems, it’s rather telling that there are now six R-series bodies (currently all full frame), while there are only three in the M series.

The lenses said to be incoming with the new bodies are the RF-S 18-45mm IS and RF-S 18-150mm IS, and it’s possible that both cameras will be available as kits with either one or both of the lenses.

There were rumors of an EOS M5 Mark II back in 2019 when Canon launched the EOS M6 Mark II, but the former never materialized. And now there’s speculation that the camera maker has also discontinued the latter (although it is still listed on Canon websites and at retailers in several markets), which is adding fuel to the fiery theory that Canon is finally retiring the EOS M line.

Considering how popular its EOS R cameras are, we really wouldn’t be too surprised if Canon does retire its M series. If the EOS R7 and R10 cameras inherit the stunningly accurate autofocus system Canon has on its full framers, and if the leaked specs are to be believed, then none of the M cameras will be able to match the performance of the upcoming APS-C RF-mount bodies.
