Canon EOS M5 starting at $899 and getting a $100 pre-order discount? [CW2]


Thanks Emanuel

A member of Chinese forum mobile01 claims to know the US prices of the upcoming Canon EOS M5 mirrorless camera. The weird thing: it’s suggested you get a $100 discount if you pre-order the EOS M5.

However, as weird as the rumor may be, here it is:

  • M5 body only $899, pre-order $799
  • M5 with EF-M 15-45 mm lens $1,098, pre-order $998
  • M5 with EF-M 18-150mm lens $1,198, no pre-order discount

An introduction price of $899 for the EOS M5 is absolutely plausible. On the other hand, it’s hard to believe Canon will need to encourage sales for the EOS M5 with pre-order discounts, since this camera will sell like hot cakes at X-Mas.

Last week some reliable specifications leaked:

  • Sensor: 24.2 million pixel APS-C CMOS
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • Touch AF (you can select AF point on the touchscreen while looking through the viewfinder)
  • DIGIC 7
  • 7fps
  • ISO 100-25600
  • Video: FullHD 60fps
  • Dynamic NFC, Bluetooth built-in
  • Media: SD / SDHC / SDXC card
  • Large tilting LCD monitor
  • Fast Start-Up
  • 5-axis electronic image stabilization (IBIS?)
  • Size: 115.6 x 89.2 x 60.6 mm
  • Weight: 427g

I wonder if such a discount was offered before. What do you think, are the discounts a hoax or the real thing?
