Deluxe version of the Canonflex. With a top shutter speed of 1/2000 sec, the fastest ever for any camera, the CanonFlex R2000 was a high-performance 35mm SLR. Other than that, it was the same as the original Canonflex. The viewfinder used a Fresnel matte focusing screen without a rangefinder.

This was Canon’s first camera aimed at professional photographers.
