Yeah, the AUD400 of value is somewhat overrated! They have told me that:
"the memory card is $57 (UHS-I only), the NEW battery (LP-E6NH) is $179, and the strap is a limited edition strap at $164. For the bonus strap and battery I would suggest getting in touch with Canon Australia, as they have organised this free promotional kit as a gift for customers. "
The battery isn't listed yet on their website but it should be about AUD110 (Current LP-E6N is AUD88 and BHphoto has ~25% premium on the NH version).
I will sell the card/strap after delivery... not sure how much the market thinks it is worth. Advertising a new (in demand) camera via a custom strap is asking for problems.
Bundling a EOS-R mount adaptor instead would have been much more useful!
I didn’t look that closely. I assumed the card was a small cfexpress. That’s pretty average then!!

Agree the adapter would be great, but I guess from a commercial perspective the camera is probably the bait to buy all new Rf glass. So bundling an adapter would be off strategy.

I am going to hang out at least till the first major (cash off) promotion, if that’s 12 months that’s ok with me. Just hope the Aussie dollar doesn’t tank till then.

First of all: FIRST!!! :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

Any update on EU pricing? We all know it can get pretty weird with EU pricing even if there is around 20% VAT included, wonder how it will play out.

Canon EOS R6 Body $2499 sounds great but in EU pricing maybe €2800?Maybe a bit less?
It's 2631 in Germany - strange numbers because of temporary 3% VAT reduction - will be 2699 after that period.

Waiting for some R6 + 85mm combo @ 2 700 Euro :)

At Canon AU store it goes for $7100 which was very frustrating to me, but I found it for $6588, also with battery and strap. My budget was at $6000 but ok, I stretched it. $7100 would have been too much.
The card is useless, yes, but the battery is a must buy anyway. The control ring adaptor - that I'll try and get the cheapest/grey wherever possible.
Yeah, forget about the Canon AU website. Digidirect seems to be the cheapest. My budget was $5500 so I have really stretched. I need an adaptor, I didn't need another battery as I have a few LP-E3 batteries that I could use (yes I know that they have less capacity)
I will do without some other stuff... maybe even the CFe card for the moment. MSY has the cheapest UHS-II card prices I have found at AUD289/128GB. We don't know the sanctioned CFe cards yet ie which cards meet Canon's requirements for 8k/30 etc.
Let me know if you find a grey adapter as I can't find any. AUD170-180 is the cheapest
 

Starting out EOS R

EOS R5 - RF24-105mm F4L, RF70-200mm f2.8L

I ordered my R5 + 24-70mmf2.8L at 5AM this morning PST. Does anyone know if there is a way to find out where you are on the preorder list?
Who knows, I ordered my R5 within a few minutes of the livestream starting after seeing the specs on CR and when I did live chat with the retailer, they confirmed there is no limit on pre orders but there is a limit on the 1st tranche of deliveries from canon but he wouldn't say how many that was, only that I was fairly near the top, so hopefully will be in the 1st tranche.

I think the UK may have been a little more rigid with the embargo of not listing anything before the day and only released things when the live stream started, so almost no chance they will give me any more detail. :sneaky:

The good news is they gave me a decent price for the R I traded in, only about £50 less than the quote they gave me 3 months ago. The bad news is, I will be without a camera from 20/07/20 for a few weeks until the R5 arrives, whenever that will be? Thats going to be purgatory but when all said and done, it's hardly 3rd world issues.

With the currency dip in March, the RF gear went up in price locally... it hasn't come back down when the currency improved to basically the same as before. some definite money taking at the moment. In some ways I don't blame them but still....

It's so frustrating when that happens... increase prices quickly when the dollar drops... but leave them alone when the dollar recovers grrrr

Yup, some of the non-IS lenses like the 28-70 and 85 1.2 have larger image circles that allow for more IBIS stabilization (similar to how the wider RF mount gives more stops than Sony's more narrow E mount). However, I'm thinking the 28-70 is only going to be 8 stops at 70mm. At 50mm, it will probably equal the 50 1.2, and at 28 will probably be the least effective – unless somehow the R5 sensor microlens design is better at resolving the angle of light from wider focal lengths than the R is.
Color me . . . extremely surprised. With a lens that's already f/1.2, this opens the door to unbelievable handheld nighttime portraits, as long as the subject holds still.

No pre order in Thailand for any of the cameras or lenses.
Will probably be closer to end of year before we see anything.
Just checked prices in Singapore store I use and they are quoting the Canon msrp S$6199 for pre order.
Used to always be 7-10% less on anything I bought previously.

Wait to see what comes first, flight to Singapore or buy locally.
