We came across an unvalidated rumor of a new affordable canon mirrorless camera and RF 28mm f2.8 STM. According to the source, the RF 28mm f2.8 Sim has been added to overseas retailers and will sell for US$299, and the new mirrorless camera, which we don't have a name for is supposed to cost $479 body alone or $599 with a kit lens, or $829 with two kit lenses.
Does it make sense to release another camera below the Canon EOS R50, which sells for $679? We think that with he capabilities of a smart phone, cameras below the R50 don't make a lot of sense.
It was rumoured that the Canon R100 or R1000 would make an appearance early in 2023, but instead we got the R50 and R8. Could this camera, if real, be the R100?
