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:

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

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.

No.
Not only different taxation. But also different markets -> hard to calculate. But looking into past, US typically gets the best price.

OMG, the next 20 pages will be about how to remove and apply VAT rates. :D
As long as we don't regress into the 17 or so pages of the
50 US State tax configurations with county and city permutations as well.

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)
