Predicted Pre-Order Links and Prices for New R5, R6, and Lenses

There’s only twelve hours left before one of Canon’s biggest product launches — we’ve never seen this much demand for a new product, based on the volume of pre-pre-order requests.

We expect initial allocation/supply of this camera to be very low, with the EOS R5 initially shipping at the end of July and the EOS R6 by end of August. If you want this camera early, you should pre-order it at 8 AM ET tomorrow. Remember, it’s very easy to cancel a pre-order, but difficult to put yourself higher on a pre-order list later.

To give you a head-start on the pre-order frenzy, we’ve predicting that the below links will be where pre-orders will be active as of Thursday, 8 AM ET, along with the expected pricing. We’ll keep this up-to-date, as things change and more becomes known.

We also don’t have a street price firmed up yet, but hope to have one soon. Even if you’re waiting for a street price pre-order, add the EOS R5 or EOS R6 to your watchlist. We recommend placing a regular pre-order above as a backup plan. Good luck, and see you tomorrow at 8 AM ET for the big launch!

    Do they generally charge your card when you preorder or it ships? I don’t want to have $20000 in preorders out there on my card 🙂

      Generally, when the item ships, if you use a credit card. If you use PayPal it may charge you right away.

    Oh ho, I was off by 100 bucks on the R5. My guess was 3799 at launch.
