Sounds like it'll be another brick like the 7D Mark II's WFT-E7, since it lists a LAN cable implying ports like the WFT-E7 has. Wonder if Canon will make it look any sexier and more like a camera grip, or if it'll remain the same blocky form factor.

I don't see myself picking one of these up considering the camera already has wi-fi built in, but maybe if a job requires me to use ethernet tethering. That's only happened for me once with my 1DX2, so not hugely concerned.

So:
  • R5
  • Grip
  • Extra LP-E6NH batteries
  • 2x CFExpress cards
  • WFT
This R5 thing is going from "Maybe within toy budget this year" to "You can survive on one kidney, right?".
Think about how you would feel if you could only buy the camera bundled with all that stuff.

yay! news... oh, wireless transmitter. :cautious:

in all seriousness though, i'm glad for every little tidbit. i'm guessing (hoping?) we get some more official information before the end of the month. February and March announcements were on the 13th; April was on the 21st; will May's update be on the 21st too? :unsure:

I hope it's styled like a WFT-E5 (grip style) or WFT-E8 (1dx side attachment).

My advice is to sell the testicles. None of us will need them when the wife finds out how much this camera costs.
LOL

Well, if the formal announcement is indeed May 27th it would be brilliant, since it's our 10 year anniversary. Would go something like this "well honey, I didn't get you anything, that's true..BUT: I just pre-ordered a couple of R5's!'
