Canon EOS R Teardown by LensRentals

Roger Cicala at has done a teardown of the brand new Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera, to check out what’s inside the Canon EOS R.


It was rather a boring disassembly, really, about what we should expect for Canon doing a Canon 6D Mark II quality mirrorless camera. It’s neatly laid out and nicely engineered inside. One thing that struck me is that it’s not very crowded inside there, or as we like to say ‘they left a lot of air inside’.

In addition, Mr. Roger doesn’t think that the future Canon EOS R models will have IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation).

Do I think future Rs are going to have IBIS? No, I don’t. Canon has been very clear that they think lens stabilization is superior. The space is probably just a matter of ergonomics and perhaps heat diffusion. But there’s certainly room for it.

The Canon EOS R teardown comes with a huge set of images with descriptions. You can see the whole teardown at

Reminder: The Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera is now in stock at major US stores.
