The Canon EOS R is the from the word go full frame mirrorless camera to use the new RF mount. It’s built around the same 30 megapixel Dual Pixel CMOS sensor as 2016’s EOS 5D Evaluate IV but is designed for a new series of RF lenses. Canon says the shorter RF lens mount will allow them to design better or smaller lenses than they can for the prevailing EF mount.
Being the first RF-mount camera, it’s not surprising that the EOS R occupies a unique new position in Canon’s lineup. In essence, you’re getting image and video superiority from the 5D Mark IV at around the price point of the 6D Mark II with a healthy dose of control philosophy from both of those cameras as likely as the EOS M series.

The EOS R was announced less than two weeks after Nikon’s Z7, which itself is Nikon’s earliest full-frame mirrorless camera and is also designed around a new mount. Where Nikon makes a big deal about how immediately familiar the Z7 will be to persisting Nikon shooters, Canon may refer to is incorporating some more radical ergonomic innovations on the EOS R – it handles unlike any existing Canon camera. Let’s take a neck look at what exactly those innovations are and how they work.
The Canon EOS R will be available from October 2018 at a cost of around $2,299 or $3,399 with the RF 24-105mm F4L IS lens.
