Edit: EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R still not available for pre-order at Amazon EU.
This morning we reported that the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R will start shipping worldwide starting mid June. Now we got the confirmation, at least for the US market.
B&H Photo updated their Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R product pages. It says: “Will begin shipping Sun, Jun 14 (subject to availability)“. Remember that orders will be filled on a first come first serve basis. If you still didn’t order the EOS 5DS or EOS 5DS R, then this may be the right moment.
Based on what I have been told, various big European retailers are expecting first EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R batches more or less by the end of next week/beginning of the week after. Guess this is valid also for other retailers around the globe, especially in the USA.
Keep in mind that shipping dates may also be delayed because of unexpected issues. However, I am pretty confident both the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R will start shipping all over the globe from mid June, with some delays to the last June week for smaller countries or markets Canon considers not a priority.
