Looks like $3900 for the R5 and $2500 for the R6.

That doesn't seem to bad....and a $600-$900 savings from best case earlier prediction for R5

"...been saying $5k for the last month or so but my final answer is somewhere between $4500-$4800."

Certainly will have to wait some time for the few thinking $3499 (maybe post Christmas Grey market)...but for what you get $4K/2.5k respectively seems a pretty sweet body for the money. Looks about right IMO.

As expected? You must be dreaming

But seriously, the prices seem reasonable to me. Can't wait to see what they're actually like.

Didn't you except a much higher price tag?

Canon must be dreaming to sell it that cheap!

Re: R5 and R6 price leak

What I don't understand is the US price for the R5. If you check the UK prices, the R5 is £4200 and the R6 £2500. The US prices are $3900 for the R5 and $2500 for the R6. So either the UK is getting stiffed with the R5 price, or the US is getting stiffed with the R6 price.

I think it's a mix of both.

Here are the prices in yen:

Those numbers are with the 10% tax. You take out the 10% and convert it to USD, the R5 is $4,285 USD. The R6 will be $2,841 USD. The Japanese got the short end of the stick.

The UK prices, the R5 is £4200 and the R6 £2500.

For comparison, the R body price on release was $2,299 USD and 2,349 pounds.

Re: R5 and R6 price leak

R5 is about what I predicted, R6 is cheaper.   I expected $3800-3900 and $2800-2900.

Confirmed prices

In my country 52 000 SEK for R5 and 31 000 for R6 (divide by 9 for USD or 10 for EUR). I think it's reasonable prices for what you get. But I'm not prepared to pay that much. Now I hope for discounts on R and RP.

I thought it would be about $5k. I said $3499 was dreaming, $3899 is more in line with what was expected as we got closer.
