Canon EOS R5 Price Around $6000? Leaked Retailer Information Suggests

Canon Eos R5 Price

Update: the retailer changed the price to a AU$200 deposit, and added:

THIS IS JUST A WITHHOLDING DEPOSIT THAT’S FULLY REFUNDABLE. WE’LL CONTACT YOU ONCE WE HAVE FIRM PRICING

Still, AU$10,499 is a weird placeholder, isn’t it?


Original post:

An Australian camera retailer lists a Canon EOS R5 price that doesn’t seem at all to be a placeholder.

The Canon EOS R5 is listed at 10,499 Australian Dollars, which converts to approximate US$6254.

Too much? Not sure given the impressing features the Canon EOS R5 is packed with (all EOS R5 information is listed here), including 8K video.

The Canon EOS R5 Is A Mirrorless 5-series Camera, Canon Exec Says

Canon EOS R5

It was already clear to most of us that the Canon EOS R5 was playing in the same league as the EOS 5D-lineup.

Now it’s officially stated by David Parry, Canon’s Product Marketing Specialist, in an interview with Techradar about the Canon EOS R5.

Here are some excerpts:

So is that why this camera is called the EOS R5?

It’s aimed at that level of the market. This isn’t a replacement for the 5D Mark IV or anything like that. But this is a mirrorless 5-series, it’s aimed at that segment of the market” […]

The EOS R5 has impressive video credentials. How does it handle heat issues when shooting 8K video?

We’ve been doing this for a while now and we’ve learnt a lot of techniques to dissipate heat on other products that we have in our lineup. For example, being able to move components around, and being able to have them further away from each other” […]

The EOS R5 has Animal Eye AF. Does this work in both video and stills?

We can’t divulge that at the moment, but what’s really exciting about that for us is that it’s dogs, cats and birds – as far as I’m aware no other manufacturer has mentioned birds in their Animal AF

Canon already announced the development of the EOS R5. A few weeks ago Canon revealed more EOS R5 specifications to stop “fantasy speculations“. The announcement is expected to be released in June 2020 but it might get delayed because of the Coronavirus outbreak. In the interview David Parry says “we can’t say whether [the release of the R5] is going to be affected or not, but let’s just wait and see what happens over the next few weeks“.

Summing up everything, here is what we know about the game-changing EOS R5:

  • 45mp full frame CMOS sensor

  • 12fps mechanical, 20fps electronic
  • Scroll wheel added to the back
  • No touch bar
  • Liveview/Movie toggle like previous EOS DSLRs
  • Larger capacity battery, but looks like the LP-E6

High Resolution Canon EOS R Undergoing Testing Mentioned Again, 90MP Sensor

High Resolution Canon

Last week we got a suggestion about the rumored high resolution Canon EOS R. Our source suggested a 150MP resolution, which we posted with some cautionary advise.

A new rumor about the Canon high resolution EOS R model came up. The source of this rumor suggests that 1) the high resolution EOS R is already undergoing testing by selected photographers (we got the same suggestion last year), and 2) the resolution might be closer to what we got suggested last year, i.e. a resolution somewhere around 90MP. According to the source the resolution is “significantly lower than 150mp” and “just about doubles” the 45mp in the upcoming Canon EOS R5.

The only other bit that emerged so far is that the high resolution EOS R will not be that strong on the video features side, which is to expect from a high resolution camera.

This EOS R model might get announced at the beginning of 2021. The next Canon EOS R cameras that we expect to get announced are the EOS R5 and EOS R6.

Stay tuned.
