Canon EOS R5 Announcement – Yet Another Date Is Rumored (7/9/2020)

Canon Eos R5 Announcement

And yet another Canon EOS R5 announcement date is rumored. The EOS R5 and more gear might get announced on July 9, 2020.

Previously July 2, 2020, was the candidate date. Now the same source suggests July 9, 2020, as the Canon EOS R5 announcement date. And it’s not just about the EOS R5.

On July 9, 2020, the following Canon gear is expected to be announces:

  • Canon EOS R5 (all rumors)
  • Canon EOS R6 (all rumors)
  • Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 IS STM
  • Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
  • Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM
  • Canon RF 100-500mm f/4-7.1L IS USM
  • Canon RF 600mm f/11 DO IS STM
  • Canon RF 800mm f/11 DO IS STM
  • Teleconverter RF 1.4x
  • Teleconverter RF 2x

A new Canon EOS R5 price rumor also popped up, and suggests what might be the price of the R5 in Europe, i.e. €4,500. The source claims to have seen an official Canon price list for Europe.

Does this make the rumored price of less than US$4,000 less plausible? It seems so. Although some people is making rather elaborate but still reliable calculation involving VAT to permute the €4,500 to US$4,000, there is obviously a possibility that the EOS R5 might well be over US$4,000 in the USA.

However, we soon will know. In the meantime, here are the EOS R5 specifications we know about, and here is a list of all EOS R5 teasers and rumors

Stay tuned.

Yet Another Canon EOS R5 Price Rumor Suggests €4500 In Europe, Report

Canon Eos R5 Price

We were sure it would come, we were avidly waiting for it: a new Canon EOS R5 price rumor.

Two weeks before we expect the Canon EOS R5 announcement (that is, July 2, 2020) a new Canon EOS R5 rumor pops up, and suggests what might be the price of the R5 in Europe, i.e. €4,500. The source claims to have seen an official Canon price list for Europe.

Does this make the rumored price of less than US$4,000 less plausible? It seems so. Although some people is making rather elaborate but still reliable calculation involving VAT to permute the €4,500 to US$4,000, there is obviously a possibility that the EOS R5 might well be over US$4,000 in the USA.

However, we soon will know. In the meantime, here are the EOS R5 specifications we know about, and here is a list of all EOS R5 teasers and rumors

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.
