Alongside the new Canon Rebel T8i, we also received news that the Canon EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera will be out later this year. Canon says the R5 will capture 8K video and will 20fps with a silent shutter and 12fps with the mechanical shutter. It will also feature in-body image stabilization – a first for the Canon EOS line.
In addition to the R5, Canon also announced the development of seven new RF lenses and two RF extenders due out in 2020, including the new RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens.
If you’re going to be at WPPI later this month, you can catch the EOS R5 on display at the Canon booth.
I love what Canon is doing with the EOS R product line and I’m looking forward to seeing the R5 and the lens line built out.
