Update 2: Here’s another leak, it never fails. The development announcement will be tonight (EST)
Update: I have heard from a few people since this post, and apparently Canon Rumors has caused some stress at a few Canon subsidiaries. One person did tell us that the rumored Canon EOS R5 specifications are very close to 100% correct, but a few things are off. I did receive further confirmation that 8K is there though.
We should hear more tonight/tomorrow.
It’s been about two weeks since the flurry of Canon EOS R5 leaks hit Canon Rumors and spread pretty quickly across the photography world, and since that time, there hasn’t been much more to add to the rumored specifications.
February 13, 2020 was the rumored announcement date for the Canon EOS R5, but since we haven’t seen any leaked product photos, it’s likely the EOS R5 is either getting a development announcement or won’t be announced alongside the new Canon EOS Rebel T8i and RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM Macro, which will likely happen tonight.
If anyone can offer some clarity on an announcement date for the Canon EOS R5, please pass it on.
A very good source told us that the Canon EOS R5 would launch in July of 2020, which would make a development announcement more likely if it does indeed get announced ahead of CP+.
We do know that Canon has shown dealers the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6, along with a few new lenses for the system. Which tells us an announcement is coming soon.
I have seen the Canon EOS R6 in action, so I know what we have reported is going to be relatively accurate, we’re just playing the waiting game for now.
More to come…
