    I have been told to expect an instant rebate program on EOS R and RF glass starting in September in both Canada and the United States. I do not know what other countries will have these programs, but I imagine this is going to be a very aggressive Christmas shopping season for many consumer product industries.
    The backlog of lens orders should be sorted out by the end of August I have been told by a few retailers, though predicting demand is still a bit precarious.
    The rebates won’t be huge, but I do expect to see both the EOS R6 and EOS R5 to be included in these rebate programs.

    Anyone got an open couch? When I buy the R5, my wife will probably kick me out.

    Tell her you need to get a motorcycle or a porsche to counter your midlife crisis and let her bargain you down to an R5 with a 24-70/2.8, a 15-35/2.8 and a 70-200/2.8. worked for me. (y)

    It started this month in Israel, under the wings of Canon Europe. I think this is the first time Canon offers instant rebates in Israel. Rebates go as high as $250 for an R5 with EF to RF adapter (plain one), and $150 for the RF 24-70mm f/2.8 IS USM.
    Yes but "WITH". Thats like Germany.
    You have to buy a camera for this. And I think "only" 3 lenses for one year or so.

    Years ago that was without this constraint. Some (many) lenses had this rebate.

    The promotion is by Canon Austria. My understanding is a rebate is valid for a lens bought without a camera, but the text smells like it was machine translated, so I might be wrong.
