The leaked spec sheet was in Japanese, but Canon News has posted a well-translated and organized version here. Definitely check that out if you want to dive into the full spec list. In the meantime, here are a few interesting call-outs worth mentioning, which were not already revealed in the development announcement:

20.1MP image sensor
ISO 100-102,400 (up to 819,200 extended)
Up to 5.4K (5472 × 2886) internal RAW video recording
AF is not available when recording RAW or 4K/60p
191 AF points (155 cross-type) in DSLR mode
Live View AF works down to -6EV
Buffer Depth (thanks to dual CFExpress cards):
RAW: 1,000 or more

RAW + JPEG Large: 1,000 or more
RAW + HEIF Large: Approximately 350

819,200!!!

I remember doing incantations and looking for virgins to sacrifice using various times/temps/agitations with UFG, Acufine, Diafine or any of another half dozen -fines just to get Tri-X to 3200.

Back then high school gyms or football fields were 1/250 at F/2.8. Now it would be 1/4000 @ F/8. I bet the quality would be about the same too.

The first digital camera I used was the Kodak DCS200 in 1992 - cost a cool $10,000. I still have it in my relics bag.

I rented the Canon version of that for an NCAA Gymnastics competition. It caused quite a stir with our competitor paper who was shooting color film and ran to a 1 hr. developer so they could press film for scanning. Their image quality was vastly better but I didn't have to leave the premises.

That's not a camera. That's a dictionary.

Yeah, accufine. In practice, those "fines" just cooked the more exposed areas to a higher density, but we still lost the shadow detail anyway. It also resulted in a blotchy, grainy negative. I liked the ultra-fine-grain film, even though the ASA rating was, if I recall, 25.

My first Digital was the Kodak DCS-520 and shortly after a 560. I still have a working DCS_560

My first digital that I "used" was Apple's Quick Take. I was impressed.

The first digital camera I owned and used was a Kodak DC-20. I believe it was the lowest quality digital camera made after 1990. Yes, that includes anything that was tossed into a Barbie's First Digicam set or a Hello Kitty digicam.

Under the right low-contrast lighting I could coax recognizable 320p snaps from it and recorded some events which otherwise would have been lost, so it did serve a meager purpose.
