I don’t understand though, at usa.canon.com there’s a countdown which ends 1 pm Amsterdam time, which would be 12 pm London time. Am I missing something?
The invite had the option to add to my diary and when added, it is at 18.00pm UK time. That seems correct based on the conference being at 1pm EDT and my world clock as well.

Thanks for the link! It says professional video solutions in the link though, so I highly doubt the R5 will be announced. Would love to be wrong though!

True, but on their website DSLR camera's are under 'Professional Video Solutions' as well, so my hopes are still up.

If it starts at 1pm EDT wouldn't it start at 10am PDT in California so at 9:17 shouldn't 43min 40sec not 3hrs 43min 30sec.

Has Canon moved the release date to late in the year or is it still going to be released in July?

Anyone else experiencing this - each thread comes with a humongous introductory header. The header literally fills my screen; it's huge font and annoying. The rest of the font is normal.

If this is true, it's like Canon finally listened to their fans. My last Canon camera was a 6D before I switched to Sony, largely for video and low-light shooting. I've been waiting patiently for a new Sony a7SIII, but if the Sarkari Result Pnr Status 192.168.1.1 EOS R5 is real, I might just need to return home.

Yep... I bought the RF70-200mm 15% off on special 3 months in advance of the R5 purchase (assuming June/July). The exchange rate has been volatile but still a drop against the USD and JPY so a prudent decision. Canon have 5 year warranty now so no great loss to keeping it on the shelf. I will be using my other EF lenses except for the RF100-500mm. The other big investment will be a new Ikelite housing for it.

What kits will Canon release? R5 + RF 24-105mm could be worthwhile for me.
Well, despite Canon not announcing the R5 on Monday, I went ahead and purchased the RF 70-200mm and it was delivered today. Pretty impressed with it so far. I just hope the R5 is released in May for delivery in July so the lens reward is still there. It won't stop me buying the R5 as long as its not a crazy price but every little helps.

I've not seen that, but the main body of comments now jumps all over the place every time ads load or reload to a different ad with different dimensions. It's very annoying when you're trying to click on something and it moves so you wind up clicking on something else!

Yes, I presume you mean the e-mail notifying of a new comment?

Yes, I've had that too. The text in this portion of the thread is normal but the alert email I get has text that is roughly 3" high on my monitor. I can live with it but it's annoying.

I thought the GFX50 had a physically larger, Medium Format sensor....which would be different than this R5 FF sensor....differnt applications, no?

Please correct me if I"m wrong....

Myself am lusting after the R5, BUT...if I had the scratch...I'd like the GFX100 maybe to break into the MF digital world a bit.....beast of a camera!!

Anyway...

Yes, the GFX has a señsor approximately 60% larger, but the difference between a good FF (say D800) in practical application, is very small. I assume that the R5 will have similar output to the D800, and if it does, I will trade my GFX50s for it. Better AF, better image update speed for macro, battery ergonomics, probably more robust, quieter, and more.
