Opposite of what I am seeing here in Canada. I was shocked to find out I was 16th on the list at my local shop this morning. Pre-orders require at least 25% down and are not refundable so that is $1350 down at min. In Canada Canon is also running a price guarantee for the remainder of 2020 for all those that Pre-order before July 29th. So I do not expect to see any reduction in price in the great white north this year. Oh and we also get an R5 jacket for Pre-ordering.I think preorder is not doing well in Australia. Some local retailers are offering AUD$6500.
I will wait for the price drops below AUD$6000 for the R5.
I was also planning to get the RF extender and replace my EF100-400 II with the RF100-500. I have decided to keep the 100-400 as the RF100-500 is ridiculously expensive. I also won't get the RF extender.
