Canon's upcoming EOS R5 and EOS R6 full frame mirrorless cameras' possible specifications




I have just returned from a wildlife photography trip to Hokkaido, Japan to field test the production model of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III camera. You can read my review here.

When I was there, Canon announced the closure of five facilities based in the Oita, Miyazaki and Nagasaki prefectures, from March 2nd to March 13th, ostensibly because of interruption of the supply chain from China. Together with all other disruptions caused by the Coronavirus, this will delay the schedule announcement and delivery of the upcoming EOS R5 and EOS R6 full frame mirrorless cameras.
