Canon EOS Rumors

Canon EOS R5 launch price will be below $4000 USD [CR3]

The most asked question currently about the Canon EOS R5 is how much will it cost? Rumors have been mostly fueled by speculation on some retailer web sites.

I have been told that the Canon EOS R5 will come in under $4000 USD for the body, the source didn’t want to divulge the exact launch price for anonymity reasons, but it has apparently been set.

With the announcement for the Canon EOS R5 coming in July, I should start to hear more about pricing and kits in the coming weeks.

Well, that’s something. I don’t expect that anyone here believed it would be more.

$ 3,999 US but in rip-off Britain that will translate to £ 3,999 maybe more.

Hmmm, it went from "Initial availability could come as early as July." to "announcement for the Canon EOS R5 coming in July" :(

You must not have read the other forum post when the previous pricing rumor came out... plenty of people thought it would be well over 4K because of the specs. This is perfect for me and within my planned budget for this camera :D

Why do people insist on saying this every time a price for anything is mentioned? UK prices are listed inclusive of tax USA prices are not. In the UK the health service is included in your tax bill, in the USA it is not, personally I'd pay a few hundred dollars more each time I bought a camera and got health insurance included, in the USA you 'save' a few hundred dollars on the cost of your camera and spend $500 every single month on health insurance because "Freedom".

Most seemed to expect around $3500-3750 for a true mirrorless 5D4 replacement. Let's hope they're available to purchase in normal quantities before end of 2020.

$3,999 USD in US before sales tax equals (approximately)


€3,700 before tax, or ~ €4,400 with tax in EU

£3,250 before tax, or ~ £3,850 with VAT in UK


Now, I'd expect the EU and UK base prices to be higher because Canon (and every other manufacturer) build in a margin to protect themselves from currency fluctuations. It's bad form to set an RRP, and then have to adjust it in 3 months because the currency is worth less against the dollar.

So I'd call 4499 EUR and 3999 GBP retail prices assuming the retail price in the US is $3999

$3999 was my prediction for a long time. Sony killer at that price. Will sell lots of expensive RF lenses.

As I've been saying for months...
$3999.00 USD - R5
$2499.00 USD - R6

The more important part of this whole CR3 is that it seems it will now be announced in July...what happened to announced in June available by July? I bet the next CR3 will be to state that the camera strap mount has passed some sort of certification. And why is so little being mentioned about the R6?

Thats would be a bold move of Canon cause it basically renders the 1DX3 obsolete.

The cheapest Ford Mustang V8 in the Netherlands is priced euro 123.000,- so that's $135.000,- Taxes are high. My income tax alone is 55% (well, before covid was fashion)... But camera stuff is reasonably priced. It's 30% more than the advertised USA-price but 21% of that is VAT.
Anyway. The 5R will be expensive when you add the grip and battery, a few CF express cards and the new external wifi transmitter...

Not at all, the R5 is not a sports shooter (from what we know so far), it will not win over OVF shooters (myself included), it is not as rugged as the 1DXIII, it will definitely not be used at the Olympics, etc. The 1D series has always been a specialist camera which is a niche that the R5 does not fill; pricing is not everything; that's like saying it will render the C200 obsolete just because it is cheaper and on paper has some better video features.
