Pricing on the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 has been tough to nail down with 100% certainty, but it does look like the rumored pricing from earlier is going to hold true.
According to UK retailers, pricing will be as follows:

Canon EOS R6 Body £2499
Canon EOS R6 w/24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM £2899
Canon EOS R5 body £4199

This goes with yesterday’s UK pricing leaks on the upcoming RF mount lenses.

Canon RF 85mm f/2 IS STM Macro £649
Canon RF 100-500mm f/4-7.1L IS USM £2,899
Canon RF 600mm f/11 IS STM £699
Canon RF 800mm f/11 IS STM £929

Please remember that doing straight currency conversions isn’t going to tell you the pricing in your country.

Seems the UK wants to be first ;)

This would be 4.662 € at the actual exchange rate.
So pointing towards 4.599 € in the EU.

Isn't it usually a 1:1 between GBP asking price and USD asking price?

So, according to my *incredibly rudimentary 10 second online number crunching*, this would price it at about £3,500 before VAT (at 20% currently). Not sure if that means $3,500 for pre-tax US pricing? Would certainly be nice!

edit - Not suggesting that £3,500 and $3,500 are equivalent prices, mind you, only that the absolute numerical values between pre-tax US prices and pre-VAT UK prices are often identical with internationally marketed products. Here's hoping!

The R5/100-500mm combo will be £7098, even way above the £5,500-6000 I guestimated. I simply can't justify that when I am getting good results with my current gear. $3999 would be consistent with current US/UK prices for other gear.

Or you could just buy one now, and one later? I don't suppose the lenses are going anywhere, and EF/RF converter rings exist.

No. £3500 pre-tax would naively convert to about $4400 pre-tax, but the US price will almost certainly not be that high due to Other Economic Differences. Definitely not as low as $3500 either.

$3499 for the R5 and $2199 or $2299 would fit the traditional entry prices for basically every other camera in the range (EOS R debuted at $2299, the a7Riv debuted at $3499, the 5DIV debuted at $3499, the Z6 and Z7 hit around those price points)
