Is This The Canon EOS M5 Pricing? [CR1]

Is This The Canon EOS M5 Pricing? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | September 11, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

A member over at the mobile01.com forum claims this is the pricing for the soon-to-be-announced Canon EOS M5. What’s interesting is there appears to be a $100 discount if you preorder the body only, or with the 15-45mm IS STM kit lens. The brand new EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM kit doesn’t get the same preorder discount.

We cannot confirm the reported pricing at this time.

EOS M5 Pricing: (all pricing USD)

  • EOS M5 Body: $899, Preorder $799
  • EOS M5 w/15-45mm kit: $1098, Preorder $998
  • EOS M5 w/18-150mm kit: $1198, Preorder $1198

Thanks Samuel

Teardown: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

Teardown: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

By Canon Rumors | September 9, 2016 | Canon DSLR News

LensRentals.com didn’t take long doing a teardown of the brand new Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. It looks like the new body shows some build quality improvements and should provide reliable performance in tough environments.

From LensRentals.com

Construction is at least as robust as the recent 5 series releases and better than the Canon 5DIII, which is as it should be. There’s a little more complexity with cables running hither and yon more than in previous Canon cameras, but that isn’t going to affect operations at all. It may make repairs a bit more difficult. And I’m, as I always am, disappointed to see HDMI and USB ports soldered onto the main PCB. They get torn off a fair amount on every camera that’s made this way (which is most cameras that aren’t dedicated for video). On the other hand, the main PCB replacement may not be much more expensive than a sub-board replacement. Read the full article
