Canon's mirrorless camera has filled out nicely in the last few years, with powerful models like the EOS R5 and EOS R3 offering professional-level performance and options like the EOS RP and EOS R6 offering more affordable pricing with reasonably balanced feature sets. Missing in all of that is an advanced APS-C mirrorless camera, but thankfully, that will likely change later this year.
Canon Rumors is reporting that the Canon EOS R7 has been delayed, but that it will likely be announced in the fourth quarter of this year. The EOS R7 would be the natural successor of the Canon 7D series. The 7D and 7D Mark II were highly popular bodies, offering Canon's most advanced performance and features in an APS-C body at a much more affordable price than comparable full frame bodies. This made it a great option for advanced amateurs or for pros who wanted a capable backup body or the extra reach offered by the crop sensor instead of having to spend significant money on an extra supertelephoto lens. I have no doubt that a similar mirrorless model would be just as popular with Canon photographers. Hopefully, we will see it later this year!
