The upcoming Canon EOS R5 camera has generated more hype than any other camera in recent memory, with some showstopping features that have caught the attention of photographers and videographers alike. With many wondering what the price of such a powerful camera will be, there is some great news.
While Canon has released some of the key specifications of the upcoming EOS R5, one important piece of information, its price, has remained unmentioned. The cost has been a bit tough to guess. Canon confirmed that the R5 is essentially the mirrorless version of the 5D, which would put its price somewhere in the $3,500 range, but with features like 8K internal video, the prospect of a potentially (much) higher price also seemed possible. Thankfully, though, it seems that the price will be in the former camp. Canon Rumors is reporting that the price will indeed be under $4,000 at launch (likely in July). This will surely make the EOS R5 a popular camera and keep pressure on other manufacturers. With features like 8K internal video and 20 fps continuous shooting coming in at $3,500, one has to wonder what sort of specs we will see in a $6,000 R1 body. Either way, it's an exciting time for Canon fans!
