According to Nokishita, the Canon EOS R5 will begin shipping in late July in Japan, and on July 30 in the United States. There was no mention of a European release date, but you can be pretty sure that it will hit that market around the same time.
It’s also reported that the RF 600mm f/11 IS STM and RF 800mm f/11 IS STM will also begin shipping in late July.
The ship date for the RF 85mm f/2 IS STM Macro has not been mentioned as of yet.
Two other previously rumored lenses, the RF 50mm f/1.8 IS STM and RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM are likely going to be some kind of a development announcement and will begin shipping later in 2020.
I have been told that the Canon EOS R6 will begin shipping on or around August 27, 2020.
The ship date for the Canon EOS R6 is currently unknown.
Update: I have updated the article to reflect the shipping date for the Canon EOS R6

Let's not forget the spicy part from Nokishita:



The Canon "EOS R6" will be released in Japan in late August. The main features of R6 are "CMOS sensor based on flagship model", "DIGIC X" and "Dual Pixel CMOS AF II".


The main features of the R5 are "the world's first 8K video recording," "the world's highest 8.0-step image stabilization," "about 45 million pixels," and "high-speed continuous shooting at up to about 20 frames per second."

Number one on the list for the R5, and R6 at my go-to shop. This is excellent news. I'm all in for it.

hm...its a terrible time for me to buy a camera.....but if it showed up and I got to try it out for a few days before the wife noticed and killed me it may still be worth it. :)

Is there some confusion between the R5 and R6 in the two Nokishita tweets? The R6 one refers to “45 million pixels” which can only be a reference to the R5.

Grabbing 2 of those immediately upon release. But sorely disappointed at the lack of L lenses.

I believe he is talking about both of the cameras. The R6 to have CMOS based on flagship and Dual pixel AF II (like the EOS R5) and then he passes to the R5 with main feature 8k video recording.

The real question (for which there will be no answer as Canon never communicate this) is how much stock in channel will there be? How has COVID affected delivery and estimated quotas? It will be interesting to see how sustained demand is, past the initial clamour from fanboys with GAS (myself included) through the second half of the year, and if Canon can keep up with demand. A part of me thinks they wouldn't be announcng if they didn't think they could keep up though.
