Is Canon readying the release of the replacement for the original EOS R? A new…
The Canon EOS R6 and Canon EOS R5 announcement is getting closer by the day, July 2, 2020, the most likely date. And EOS R6 and EOS R5 preorders might start soon too.
Latest has it that you will be able to put EOS R6 and EOS R5 preorders by mid July 2020. The following kits will be available for preorder:
- Canon EOS R5 body
- Canon EOS R6 body
- Canon EOS R5 kit with RF 24-105mm USM lens
- Canon EOS R6 kit with RF 24-105mm USM lens
- Canon EOS R6 kit with RF 24-105mm STM lens
Be aware that it is very likely that Canon will not be able to ship the EOS R5 and EOS R6 in huge quantities at first, as consequence of supply chain issues because of the global pandemic.
All we know about the Canon EOS R5 is neatly listed here. About the EOS R6 we know less (all rumors here and rumored specifications here), The EOS R6 will be a more entry-level oriented camera with a 20MP sensor. 4K is rumored to be on board.
After the EOS R6 and EOS R5 announcement (and maybe along with them) we expect Canon to announce a bunch of RF lenses for the EOS R system.
