I would love the R6 to be a high iso performing version of the R5 without the high spec video but it seems from the rumors it will be a lower level R.
( Why does my name have M50 under it? I must have to change something in my profile.. I shoot a 5D mark iiii :) )

I was disappointed that the 100-500 was an F7.1 lens given other brands have 6.3 options at 600mm

Looks like the upcoming R5, 100-500 and extenders will all be on display at The Photography Show in Birminghan next month:

"Exciting news! The recently announced EOS R5, RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM lens and new extenders will be making an appearance at the show. Make sure you visit our stand to get your first glimpse at the new additions to the EOS R System."

Does this mean the release date might be closer than we think?

The tag corresponds to your length of account on CR. You can change it to personalize it in Account Details/Custom Title

My guess is that there are already some prototypes being tested at the moment by some photographers and that some of these prototypes will be at the show for demo. The final version might be ready in July after some corrections are made to the firmware following the input from the testers...

A fast ultra-wide L prime will also be announced in 2020.

I get a little worried about this statement. It has earlier been hinted about a 24mm f1.4 or f1.2, and I really do hope they release that one before an even wider lens. Should we all adjust our expectations about the 24mm coming in 2020? Thanks!

You’re not talking about the R5 are you? Since that’s obviously full frame

Sorry, brainfart, it's obviously FF as you say. I was thinking the sequence was APS-C, APS-H, APS.

Those are bigger, heavier lenses with worse optical quality. There is a reason why they are cheaper, this one will be priced close to 3000$ with the teleconverters being similarly expensive.
This lens is aiming to be a EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM II replacement (or a direct rival to the Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS) with even better optical quality and very lightweight as well.
Also likely to work very well with a teleconverter.

It does make me wonder if there’s (still) a possibility of an aps-c R camera. I would not be interested personally, but sure that plenty others are

It will be at WPPI next week too. It’ll be “on display”. Meaning no one will be able to put their hands on it. And not surprising this far out. Once Canon makes the full announcement with the final official specs, that will change. Maybe NAB in April is what Im thinking. If the camera can do 8K, that’s a great place to have it hands on for the first time

FWIW, Jared Polin said in a video published yesterday that he believes the 100-500 will come in around $2K. I'm tempted to agree, and I also can't see myself buying it if it hits around $3K.

Maybe there will be an L series 70-300 or 70-400, with a faster aperture, that hits around the price you mention, and that will replace the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM II.

EDIT: and there will certainly be space for one of the above in Canon's lineup, given how slow the 100-500 is at the telephoto end.

Seems odd at this stage that we know the sensor size of the R6 and not the R5,
Maybe more indication that the R6 will use the 1DXIII sensor? That is supposed to be a very nice sensor even if smaller than the current 6 series. High ISO and high DR would make it worth the loss of megapixels. Also it is supposed to be sharper than other sensors due to something with the filter(?)

We know the sensor size (36 x 24mm), we just don't know the pixel density! ;)

Hm? If you're talking about resolution, we "know" neither. [CR3] rumors say that the R5 is 45MP and the R6 is 20MP, but neither is confirmed by Canon (indeed Canon has not confirmed even the existence of the R6!)

I'm guessing that 45MP has to be correct.
8K has been confirmed so from here the math is simple:
8K is 7680 x 4320 (33,177,600) or 34MP
However, that's16:9
The camera sensor is 4 x 3 so it means that the pixel resolution would have to be
7680 x 5760 (44,236,800) or 45MP

Edit:
I incorrectly stated the sensor ratio is 4:3
when the correct ratio is actually 3:2, oops!

So, I'll redo the math:
At 3:2 the pixel resolution would have to be:
7680 x 5120 (39,321,600) or 40MP

Thanks to Melgross and Sharmin for spotting the error.
