New Firmware coming to the Canon EOS R

By Canon Rumors | June 25, 2020 | Canon EOS R

I am told that a firmware update for the Canon EOS R will be coming sometime before the end of July.

As far as we can tell, the firmware update will be for bug fixes.

On the topic of the EOS R, a separate source told us we can expect to see another Canon EOS R price drop before the end of September, likely priced at $1499 USD. The camera will remain current to the EOS R lineup into 2021 we were also told.

Both the Pixma Pro-10 and Pro-100 are quite long in the tooth, and it looks like Canon is readying a new A3+ (13×19) printer.

Details are scarce beyond it having a new design language and LCD screen, but expect the new printer to be announced alongside the Canon EOS R5, Canon EOS R6, and new lenses on July 9, 2020.

Review: Canon RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM

Review: Canon RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM

By Canon Rumors | June 22, 2020 | Canon Reviews

Bryan over at The-Digital-Picture has completed his review of the Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM, a lens that will likely become quite popular with Canon EOS R6 buyers when the grab the camera with the lens included.

This is the first f/7.1 lens we’ve seen from Canon, which may be offputting to some, but for a lot of shooters, it’ll be a worthwhile trade-off for the lightweight design and affordable price.

Here are more Canon EOS R6 Specifications [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | June 18, 2020 | Canon DSLR Rumors

A little bit lost in the hype of the Canon EOS R5 is the Canon EOS R6. We broke the news of this model back in January, and Canon hasn’t done any sort of teasing for it. However, some early specs have remained true over the last few months, and now we have more information about the coming EOS R6

The Canon EOS R6 is aimed squarely at people looking for high ISO performance, great video specifications, and priced right for a lot of shooters.

  • FullHD @ 120p
  • Canon Log
  • 10-bit
  • Zebras
  • AF identical to the EOS R5
  • No RAW video mode

I asked, and my sources came through. I now know the announcement date for the Canon EOS R5, Canon EOS R6, and new RF mount lenses.

The big day? The official announcement will take place on or around July 9, 2020!

Canon products being announced on July 9, 2020

  • Canon EOS R5
  • Canon EOS R6
  • Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 IS STM
  • Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
  • Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM
  • Canon RF 100-500mm f/4-7.1L IS USM
  • Canon RF 600mm f/11 DO IS STM
  • Canon RF 800mm f/11 DO IS STM
  • Teleconverter RF 1.4x
  • Teleconverter RF 2x

The image below seems to be missing a couple of lenses, most notably the RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM and the RF 50mm f/1.8 (I think), so these probably won’t ship until Q4 of 2020.

The same source has told us that the Canon EOS R6 body will ship in August, and that the Canon EOS R5 won’t begin shipping until September. Ship dates have been a moving target thus far, but that falls in line with my original leaks that the EOS R6 would ship before the EOS R5.

Below is an image that shows the new Canon EOS R5, Canon EOS R6, and new RF mount lenses. Notice the new silver color on the RF 600mm and RF 800mm lenses.

The exact announcement date for the Canon EOS R5 is still unknown

*Update* July 9, 2020, is the official announcement date.

The Canon EOS R5 is definitely coming in the first part of July, so let’s get that out of the way off the hop.

Which date exactly? I can honestly say that I don’t know. I have now received 4 different announcement dates.

The four dates floating around my inbox are as follows.

  • June 30
  • July 2
  • July 6
  • July 9

Keep in mind that timezones may change the date in your country for the announcement.

So, not much changes, we’re still going to see the Canon EOS R5 in all its glory very soon.

The next time I post about an announcement date, I will know for sure!

Canon EOS R5 pricing in Europe may have leaked [CR2]

Canon EOS R5 pricing in Europe may have leaked [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | June 16, 2020 | Canon DSLR Rumors

The obvious number 1 question I get about the Canon EOS R5 is “how much will it cost?”. We have reported in the past that the EOS R5 will sell below $4000 USD for the body only. Though I haven’t been told the exact price as of yet.

I have received a Canon price list that looks pretty legitimate but can obviously be easily edited. I can’t post the price list for obvious reasons.

According to the price list, the Canon EOS R5 will have an MSRP of €4500. Keep in mind pricing in Euro also includes VAT. which can range from 17%-27% depending on the country you’re in. There are also other considerations when looking at pricing in Euro.

The €4500 Euro pricing would mean that the price in USD will definitely be below $4000 USD. As a comparison, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV launched at $3499 USD, £3599, and €4129 in the Eurozone.

A second source claims that the Canon EOS R5 will begin shipping in early August.

We only have a couple of weeks until the official announcement of the Canon EOS R5.

Thanks Jonas

These are a few of the RF lenses coming in 2021 [CR2]

These are a few of the RF lenses coming in 2021 [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | June 11, 2020 | Canon Lens Rumors

Now that we have seen the likely lens roadmap for 2020, It’s time to move onto 2021, and below are a few lenses that I know are scheduled to be announced next year.

I don’t have all the information about these lenses, but the focal lengths are legitimate. None of these lenses will be L lenses.

  • Canon RF 18-45mm IS STM
    I don’t know if this is for full-frame, or perhaps a kit lens for an APS-C RF camera. Though I don’t believe we’ll ever see “RF-S” lenses.
  • Canon RF 24mm Macro IS
    I have no information on the focus motor or what type of macro capabilities the lens will have.
  • Canon RF 100-400mm IS USM
    This will be a non-L 100-400mm lens.

I haven’t received the same kind of information about upcoming L lenses in 2021, but there is a lot in the works according to various bits of information I have received over the last few months.
