Canon EOS R6 and EOS R5 Announcement To Be Livestreamed (on 7/9/2020)

Canon Eos R5 Announcement

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.

Stay tuned.
