A leaked image of the full EOS R lineup, set to release from Canon in early July, has been making the rounds across internet sites here in the past few days.
Excitement is building, and rightfully so! Word on the street is that all of the following products, two camera bodies, as well as six RF lenses, will be announced by Canon on July 9th.
On that day, expect to see the EOS R5, EOS R6, and six RF lenses: a 50mm f/1.8 IS STM, a 70-200mm f/4L IS USM, an 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM, a 100-500mm f/4-7.1L IS USM, a 600mm f/11 DO IS STM, and an 800mm f/11 DO IS STM. There will also be two new teleconverters, a 1.4x and 2x, for the RF mount.
With Sony allegedly preparing to FINALLY release the a7S III, a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, and one other camera at the end of this month, and Canon preparing to make a massive gear drop less than two weeks later,
There is certainly no shortage of exciting releases coming soon for photographers to lose some drool over, as Sony is preparing to release the a7S III, a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, and one other camera at the end of June.
