I have been told that the production of the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 are both running at less than 1/4 of Canon’s manufacturing capacity due to supply chain issues from the Coronavirus. This will lead to obvious issues with production numbers.
The same source says Canon is considering either releasing the cameras as planned, with the Canon EOS R5 initially scheduled to begin shipping in July, and the Canon EOS R6 rumored to start shipping in June and living with the headache of low-quantity/high-demand or waiting until the fall, likely October 2020 to release both cameras in good quantity.
