There have been blogs and write-ups on social media regarding the proposed price of the item, but nothing can be sure until it is unveiled in the market.
Canon’s EOS R5 is the first of the new era of full-frame mirrorless cameras with interchangeable lens. The product will include a newly developed CMOS sensor which will enable heightened details such as faster repeated shooting, with speeds of up to roughly 20 fps utilizing the mute shutter. For the mechanical shutter, the speeds will be almost 12 fps.

Canon is looking at the days before or after the 4th of July celebrations with the 2nd and 6th the most rumored dates.
