The Canon EOS R5, R6, and 6 RF Lenses to Be Announced on July 9th

Huge news arrives via Canon Rumors today as we hear the Canon EOS R5, R6, six RF lenses, and two teleconverters are due to be officially announced by Canon on July 9th 2020. A leaked image has also been posted to Canon Rumors which shows the brand new R5 and R6 camera bodies front-and-center. Either side they’re flanked by the RF lens range, which includes a suite of new RF lenses. Though we’re not yet sure when they’ll be available, CR has confirmed the announcement date — which has been pushed back due to coronavirus — is set for Thursday July 9th.Canon Rumors screenshot including R5 R6 camerasThe Canon Rumors website shows the new leaked image of the RF line-up which includes the R5 and R6 right at the front, with a suite of new lenses and teleconvertersThe whole list of products being announced by Canon are reported as follows:Canon EOS R5Canon EOS R6Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 IS STMCanon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USMCanon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STMCanon RF 100-500mm f/4-7.1L IS USMCanon RF 600mm f/11 DO IS STMCanon RF 800mm f/11 DO IS STMTeleconverter RF 1.4xTeleconverter RF 2xWe’re very excited to see how the new R5, and R6 bodies stack up against the specs we’ve already heard, and indeed what else Canon have in store for us regarding the camera launch.
