The euro pricing for the Canon EOS R3 leaked earlier today, now we know that the Canon EOS R3 will retail for $5999 USD at launch. It was reported earlier that the EOS R3 would have a launch price of €6099 in most of Europe.
This price is $500 more than I predicted, but it still comes under the $6000 that I reported many months ago. Some may balk at the price, but I don't think that anyone should be surprised.
The Canon EOS R3 will be announced on September 14, 2021 at 6AM ET.
R3R5 in many areas....
Guess I’ll be getting up early on Tuesday.
I am also a bit surprised that the USD and Euro price are so close.
Indeed, this is a fairly big departure from all other recent pricing...
Perhaps the euro or dollar price was not final when scooped up by Nokishita. Nokishita mentioned that the euro price was "not exact" due to ongoing edits, so who knows how the final prices will shake out.
One way of looking at it is that it's $500 cheaper than the IDX Mark III.
Why not? Modest bump in resolution over the 1DXIII, same ergonomics, same weather sealing. They could even come up with some marketing reason to excuse the mismatched card slots.
At the end of the day, it's too expensive to not be the flagship :confused:
$7,500 cdn approx, same as the 1d X 2, the mk 3 was much more.
I may hold and wait until the flagship is announced and see where the price sits then.
This crap ain't cheap!
