What The Hell? Brochure Says Canon EOS R5 With 26MP? (we think it’s a typo)

Canon Eos R5

We are getting rather confused here. Wasn’t it given for sure that the Canon EOS R5 will have a 45MP sensor?

We got the image above anonymously and it doesn’t seem a fake to us. It looks like a legit product brochure or ad. The specification list on the right of the text mentions a 26.2MP sensor. So what!?

We think someone messed up things here and mistakenly published the sensor resolution of the Canon EOS R6 instead of the Canon EOS R5. Or is 8K video possible with a 26MP sensor? We don’t think it is.

Again: we do not think a 26MP sensor resolution is possible in regard to some of the EOS R5 specifications. If someone can tell how 8K video is possible with a 26MP sensor then please share in the comment section.

The EOS R5 announcement is rumored to be on July 2, 2020. Stay tuned.

Canon EOS R6 and EOS R5 Preorders Should Start Mid July 2020

Eos R5 Price

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.

Stay tuned.

Another online retailer is displaying what could be the Canon EOS R5 price.

F64, a retailer in Romania, displays the Canon EOS R5 as being sold for 20.999 Romanian Lei. This roughly computes to US$4800. Romania has 19% VAT. Without VAT the price would be around US$4000, which seems to fit with the latest rumor about the upcoming Canon EOS R5.

Let’s hope the price for the EOS R5 is really around/below US$4,000. If Canon manages to put the EOS R5 on the market with this price tag, then I’m sure the R5 will sell like crazy. Sony, you have reasons to be scared.
