R5 - Sales/bundles to watch out for?

I'm looking to likely pick up the EOS R5, though not in an immediate rush. I haven't bought or even looked to buy a new camera in years, but have been watching the r5 from the sidelines.

- I recall at launch the r5 came with an ef/rf adapter (or was that only eos r?) I am not seeing any bundles including this... just gone now?
- Don't think I'm interested in the 24-105 bundle lens, would rather get the 24-70 2.8. So, I suppose I'm really only looking at body only (unless some random retailer adds in extra value or free value?)
- Any expected sales? Obviously an in-demand camera, plus the whole pandemic supplies issue... but yeah.

Canon EOS R5

Unlikely to have a sale since its still kind of out of stock. I have seen the kits back in stock recently.

havent seen a lot of bundles but bhphoto is always a great spot. I just use their payboo card and save on taxes which is substantial with the R5.

The Canonpricewatch site will send you emails with their sales if you sign up for it.  Often times, they have authorized dealers that will discount popular bodies.  I picked up my R5 and Grip during a pre-Order sale they advertised and saved hundreds... with no sales tax.

However, it's not often, so you'd have to be vigilant.  The November sales are still a ways away, so good luck.

But I think I am planning to buy from BH anyway...

Camera Canada often times has good deals.  I've purchased from them several times.
