We’re told to expect the Canon EOS R announcement sometime between 3:00 AM  – 4:30 AM Eastern Time on September 5, 2018. This would be a midnight announcement for the folks on the west coast of North America.
We’re also told that the preorders for all Canon EOS R products will not begin until later NEXT week. We’re unsure if you’ll be able to preorder the EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM, EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III and EF 600mm f/4L IS III tonight or not.
