According to latest Canon rumors, the long waited EOS R5 Mark II now expected to be announced in the Q4 of 2023. If true the replacement of Canon EOS R5 will also bring the high resolution model EOS R5S.
According to a reliable source, Canon intends to announce the EOS R5’s successor in Q4, with the likelihood of the R5 Mark II making its appearance before the much-awaited EOS R1. The latter is expected to have a slow release cycle, timed to coincide with the Tokyo Olympic Games.
While details about the EOS R5 Mark II’s specifications are still scarce, it is unlikely to witness a substantial increase in resolution. The current 45-megapixel resolution is considered by many to be the sweet spot, striking an optimal balance between image quality and file size. This decision by Canon should be embraced, as it ensures photographers can continue to enjoy exceptional results without sacrificing performance or storage efficiency.
