EOS R5 ($3899), EOS R6 ($2499) Announced, Pre-Orders Available



It’s finally here! The EOS R5 and EOS R6 are finally announced!

The EOS R5 is a 45MP mirrorless capable of 8K video recording. The EOS R6 is 20MP with dual SD-card slots. Both feature the DIGIC X image processor as well as Canon’s first in-body image stabilization (IBIS).

We expect initial allocation/supply of this camera to be very low, with availability in July (R5) and August (R6). If you want this camera early, you should pre-order it immediately to reserve a camera (you can always cancel it later).

Accessories and kits for the new cameras are also available:

A number of nice RF lenses, and a new printer are also announced.

      Hopefully later today. You should pre-order at B&H or Adorama as a backup plan (in case you don’t like our option).

      Cool, note that Samy’s charges tax to about 35 states right now.

    Any discounts coming up for R and RP?

      I’m not aware of any. Also, if I were Canon, I wouldn’t discount the R or RP until after both the R5 and R6 ship, to avoid cannibalizing sales of the new bodies. I’d expect to see the next R discount in September — but of course we can never predict Canon…

        Ok thanks for the information!
        I would be interested in seeing how the used market for the R is after people start receiving the R5 cameras.
