It appears Canon is indeed going to release an EOS R with APS-C sensor. Or…
As Canon did last time they will do again for the Canon EOS R6 and EOS R5 announcement: a livestream of the event.
The Canon EOS R6 and EOS R5 announcement will be livestreamed by Canon on July 9, 2020. The reason is the still ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing that has to be respected. Still not the right time to hold a press event in the traditional way.
In the meantime we got a rather clear idea about what Canon will announce on 7/9/2020. See the list below.
- Canon EOS R5 body
- Canon EOS R5 with RF 24-105mm USM
- Canon EOS R6 body
- Canon EOS R6 with RF 24-105mm STM
- Canon EOS R6 with RF 24-105mm USM
- Wireless transmitter WFT-R10 (A/B/C/D/E)
- Canon BG-R10 battery grip
- Canon LP-E6NH battery
Canon will also announce the following lenses and accessories:
- Canon RF 100-500mm L
- Canon RF 800mm f/11
- Canon RF 600mm f//11
- Lens Hood ET-101
- Lens Hood ET-88B
- Lens Hood ET-77
- Lens Case LZ1328
- Lens Case LZ1435
- RF 1.4x extender
- RF 2x extender
It’s likely there will be even more gear Canon will announce in 2020, some of it possibly already on July 9, the rest later this year.
