The Canon EOS R, shown at the bottom-left in the lead image, came first. The R was Canon's first full-frame MILC (Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera), and the start of the R-series. This model offered a relatively high resolution with a good feature set and solid performance at a reasonable price.
 
The Canon EOS RP, shown at the bottom-right, came next. A tiny model, the RP is positioned below the R and has a modestly lower resolution and noticeably lower price. The RP is an exceptional value.
 
This page exists because of the two models that came next, the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6, respectively shown at the top-left and top-right. These are both exceptionally-high-performing cameras positioned (and priced) above the EOS R.
 
Here are the differences between the Canon EOS R6, R5, and R.

Review Canon EOS R5 Canon EOS R6 Canon EOS R

Canon EOS R-Series Top View


 
Again, the original EOS R is a great value, offering good performance and relatively high resolution for a modest price. The 2-years-newer R5 and R6 are significantly more advanced cameras and considerably faster in a number of regards.
 
One clear differentiator between these cameras is the resolution they provide. It takes no more effort to press the shutter release on a 45 MP camera than it does on a 20 MP camera, and all things equal, the higher resolution image is more desirable. Use the additional resolution to output large, to downsample to even higher quality, or to crop with potentially high resolution remaining.
 
Not as apparent in the chart are that the R5 and R6 image sensors are significantly faster with less rolling shutter effect, and Canon has indicated that they offer an additional about-1-stop of dynamic range. The R6's larger pixel sites will have a higher SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio), meaning less noise at the pixel level. However, for the comparison to be equal, the higher resolution images must be downsized to the R6 image's pixel dimensions, and oversampling advantages will be realized.
 
The pixel-level noise performance is often reflected in the available ISO settings. The R6 has this advantage, and the R trails the R5.
 
The advantage of "DIGIC X" is not as easy to comprehend as, say, the number of megapixels on the imaging sensor, but this processor's extreme speed makes complex in-camera calculations possible, with improved AF performance and image quality being two advantages. The DIGIC X processor in the R5 and R6 is significantly more powerful than the DIGIC 8 processor in the R.
 
The IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) is a tremendous advantage held by the R5 and R6 models. These two cameras effectively upgrade all of the lenses in your kit, with better image quality being realized. IBIS is a huge advantage for video, decreasing the need for bulky and expensive gimbals in certain situations.
 
The R5's 8K uncropped video capability (including RAW) is awesome, and the R6 enjoys a strong movie capability advantage over the R, including uncropped 4K vs. cropped 4K (1.75x). The R5 and R6 provide Dual Pixel CMOS AF II tracking with every resolution/framerate, but the R does not get AF tracking with high framerate (720p) capture. An R5 advantage is that it goes to 120 fps in 4K while the R6 has FHD 120 fps that the R5 does not have.
 
All three of these cameras can autofocus in crazy-low light levels, but the R6 has a slight advantage. The R5 and R6 have some advantage over the R when focusing in very bright light levels.
 
The EOS R's Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, including eye and face detection, performs excellently, but the R5 and R6's Dual Pixel CMOS II AF system takes subject detection and tracking capabilities to another level, including animal tracking. We can expect noticeably better performance from the R5 and R6 AF systems in challenging circumstances.
 
The R5 and R6 have a focus bracketing feature missing on the R (this feature first arrived on the RP).
 
The R5's considerably higher resolution EVF is a significant advantage, as is its higher resolution rear LCD. The R5 and R6 have a much faster refresh rate available, helping you keep up with a moving subject. The diopter dial has moved to the right side of the viewfinder on the R5 and R6 where it is easier to access. The R5 and R6 have a modified eyecup shape (all are non-removable).
 
Also aiding in capturing a perfect action shot is the R5 and R6's extremely fast frame rate that leaves the R in the dust.
 
For some, having dual memory card slots is a big advantage for the R5 and R6 over the R. Differentiating between the R5 and R6 is that one of the R5's slots is the faster CFexpress format. For those not needing the speed of CFexpress, the R6's dual card slots sharing the same UHS-II SD format could be an advantage.
 
The additional controls and buttons, including a joystick replacing the R's Multi-Function Bar, along with the revised power switch design on the R5 and R6 make these cameras easier to use than the R. The Eos R and R5 have top LCDs while the R6 does not. The R5 and R6's top-right three buttons on the back have a horizontal layout to provide space for the larger dual memory card slot door — especially the AF-ON button is easier to reach in the updated layout. The R5 and R6 have an additional configurable button on the front. If you need the sound memo feature or a PC terminal, the R5 is your only choice.
 
Canon EOS R-Series Front View


 
The R5 has the most advanced built-in Wi-Fi and also has the most advanced wireless file transmitter available. The R6 has more advanced built-in Wi-Fi than the R, but it does not have a wireless file transmitter option.
 
The R5 and R6 have faster USB ports than the R, and the R5 and R6 have HDMI micro Type D ports vs. the R's HDMI mini Type C port. The R5 has an N3-type remote release port vs. E3 in the R6 and R. The R5 has a more durable shutter, rated at 500,000 actuations vs. 300,000 and 200,000.
 
While the R5 and R6 arrive with a higher capacity battery, that battery is compatible with the EOS R and its charger, meaning this difference is easy to equalize. That 14% higher capacity battery helps the battery life ratings with the R5 and R6 showing big improvements (when using the LCD). Remember that experienced battery life is often twice the rated value. These three cameras are essentially the same size and weight.
 
For a significant percentage of photographers, the primary decision factor between these cameras will be the price. A safe recommendation is to buy the highest-priced model you can afford. The EOS R is a bargain. The EOS R6 is a considerably faster and better camera, and the EOS R5 is the flagship model, unsurpassed in the Canon lineup. If your funds can take you to this level, the R5 is the camera you want.
 
Simplifying the R5 vs. R6 comparison:
 
R6 Advantages Over the R5
 

  • ISO 100-102400, Expandable to 204800 vs. ISO 100-51200, Expandable to 102400
  • Greater AF Working Range — EV -6.5 to 20 vs. EV -6.0 to 20
  • FHD at 120 fps vs. 60 fps (the R5 has 120 fps 4K)
  • Lower Price

The R6 advantages list is a short one. However, the "Lower Price" bullet is a powerful one.
 
Did I miss any differences? Let me know! That the R5 has a "BE CAREFUL HOT" warning label inside the memory card door does not count.

DEAR IMAGE MAKERS: CANON’S NEW imagePROGRAF PRO-300 PROVIDES EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY PRINTS AND OFFERS NEWLY UPDATED SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS
 
New Premium Fine Art Paper for Professional, Advanced Amateur Photographers and Art Lovers Further Benefitting Image Makers also Introduced
 
MELVILLE, N.Y., July 9, 2020 –– After taking the time to create your ideal photo, every creative image maker should look to complete the process with a vibrant print to share for everyone to admire. Completing the lineup of professional printer options from 13 inches through 60 inches, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, unveils today the new 13-inch Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300 Inkjet Printer along with a new Premium Fine Art Rough paper. Providing an improved workflow and high-quality output within a smaller footprint compared to previous models, this new printer excels at professional printing performance. Combined with the new Premium Fine Art Rough paper that features a textured surface to express the depth of an image, the printer along with the paper introduces a new powerhouse professional imaging duo that meets creators’ demands.
 
“With the introduction of the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300, we are continuing our outstanding tradition of creating great quality printers for a variety of image makers, making it easier to print work at home,” said Tatsuro “Tony” Kano, executive vice president of the Canon U.S.A., Inc. Imaging Technologies & Communications Group. “As the creative responsibilities of our customers have evolved and the importance of preserving historic moments has increased, it is imperative the features Canon integrates into new solutions and consumables meet the needs, wants and asks of our customers.”
 
Smaller Footprint Completes the Lineup
 
There has been a shift in what traditional work and school looks like over the last few months, as many creative-focused jobs, industries and areas of study now require tasks to be completed in non-traditional ways. Without access to a studio, office space or classroom with all the necessary tools and equipment, there is no better time to introduce a professional printer that is 15% smaller than its predecessor. With the addition of the new 13-inch Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300 printer, the lineup of professional inkjet printers expands while offering a new space-saving design that is fitting for a home studio or office.
 
Core features of the newest printer include:

  • 9-color LUCIA PRO plus Chroma Optimizer ink providing expanded color gamut and enhanced black density
  • New matte black ink offering greater black density, smooth gradations and details in darker areas
  • Technologies to help prevent print failures such as a nozzle recovery system and a skew correction function. Nozzles are carefully checked by sensors, and if a clog is detected in one nozzle, others will automatically compensate for it
  • Updates to the Professional Print & Layout software to help create seamless photo printing from image-editing software including Digital Photo Professional and Adobe® Photoshop®, Adobe Lightroom, or as stand-alone software
  • Improved media compatibility with the additional capability to support panorama-sized paper, and multiple feeding methods for media of varying thicknesses
  • High-speed printing at up to approximately 4 minutes and 15 seconds1 for a bordered 13” x 19” inch print when using Photo Paper Pro Premium paper

The usability of the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 is also improved with the addition of a 3.0 inch LCD display, allowing the user to check printer status and monitor ink levels at a glance.
 
New Fine Art Paper
 
Continuing the theme of high quality to use with the new imagePROGRAF PRO-300 printer: new Premium Fine Art Rough paper is now available in a variety of sizes including 17 inches by 22 inches, 13 inches by 19 inches and Letter sized within a pack of 25 sheets. To help express the depth of an image and add a three-dimensional touch, the new paper consists of a rough texture. The cotton used to create the paper provides a luxurious touch and makes it suitable for long-term storage.
 
Pricing and Availability of the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 and Premium Fine Art Rough paper
 
The imagePROGRAF PRO-300 Printer will be available later in July with an MSRP price of $899.99*. Premium Fine Art Rough paper will also be available later in July for an MSRP* of:

  • $44.99, Letter size
  • $109.99, 13” x 19” inches
  • $169.99, 17” x 22” inches

Availability and specifications are subject to change without notice.
 
1 Photo print speed is based on the default setting using ISO/JIS-SCID N2 on Photo Paper Plus Glossy II and does not take into account data processing time on host computer. Print speed may vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, document complexity, print mode, page coverage, type of paper used etc.

Sony Electronics Grows Lens Line-up with Launch of 12-24mm G Master, the World’s Widest Full-frame Zoom with a Constant F2.8 Aperture
 
SAN DIEGO – July 7, 2020 – Sony Electronics Inc. today announced an exciting new addition to its full-frame lens line-up with the introduction of the FE 12-24mm F2.8 GM (model SEL1224GM) Large-aperture Ultra-wide Zoom lens. This compact and versatile lens is ideal for shooting landscapes, astrophotography and architecture while providing extra mobility for active sports shooters who want to capture ultra-wide perspectives. As part of Sony’s flagship G Master series lenses, users can be completely confident that it delivers outstanding image quality up to an ultra-wide 12mm angle of view with F2.8 constant aperture and beautiful bokeh effects.
 
The introduction of the FE 12-24mm F2.8 GM now extends the F2.8 range of Sony’s G Master series zoom lenses all the way from 12mm to 200mm[ii] and at 12mm, offers the world’s widest range of zoom at F2.8. At this focal length, it is possible to emphasize distance and create dynamic perspectives that are beyond the scope of the human eye, opening the door to new avenues of creative expression.
 
“We are excited to introduce the new FE 12-24mm F2.8 GM as the 57th lens in Sony’s E-mount line-up”, said Neal Manowitz, deputy president of Imaging Products and Solutions Americas, Sony Electronics. “It is important for us to continue to push boundaries in the industry to develop the best tools for our customers. By extending our range of G Master constant F2.8 zoom lenses out to 12mm, we are excited to see how these new innovations will help our customers create like never before.”
 
The FE 12-24mm F2.8 GM benefits from innovative construction that delivers outstanding corner-to-corner image quality throughout the entire zoom range. It features three precise XA (extreme aspherical) elements including the largest XA element ever made for an a - Alpha brand lens. These XA elements, with an additional aspherical element, effectively suppress astigmatism, coma and field curvature right out to the image edges. Furthermore, three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements plus two Super ED glass elements, powerfully control chromatic aberration and combine to deliver corner-to-corner clarity while minimizing color fringing.
 
An extremely effective floating focus mechanism divides the lens’s focus group into two independently controllable groups, ensuring both outstanding close-up performance and maximum sharpness at any distance. The two independently controlled groups help realize a constant 11” (28 cm) minimum focusing distance throughout the zoom range, and because it is an internal focus lens, its length remains constant, so its center of gravity varies very little and is always optimally balanced in the hand.
 
The signature bokeh effects of Sony’s G Master series lens are achieved through the fine tuning of the lens’s spherical aberration characteristics during both the design and manufacturing process. At the same time, the extremely high surface precision of the lens’s XA elements effectively suppresses spherical aberration and, in combination with a 9-blade circular aperture, further enhances its exquisite bokeh.
 
The FE 12-24mm F2.8 GM employs four original high-speed, high-thrust XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors to ensure that it is compatible with the speed performance of both current and future camera bodies. With two XD Linear Motors for each of the lens’s focus groups, autofocus is fast and precise. New control algorithms maximize the response of the system while achieving flawless synchronization between the two focus groups. Further benefits include extremely quiet operation with minimal vibration and lower power consumption.
 
A brand-new Nano AR Coating II that can be evenly applied to large lens elements or highly curved element surfaces has been used for the first time on the FE 12-24mm F2.8 GM. It suppresses internal reflections, minimizes flare and ghosting for clear, crisp imagery and despite the lens's wide angle of view, Nano AR Coating II maintains high clarity and contrast throughout the entire image, even in difficult light.
 
Moviemaking
 
The constant F2.8 maximum aperture at all focal lengths ensures that exposure is stable when zooming. As a result, this means that shutter speed and ISO sensitivity can remain constant while shooting movies. The creative opportunities afforded by shooting movies at a 12mm angle of view with F2.8 constant aperture in full-frame are boundless, and when used on an APS-C or Super 35 camera, the wide end of the zoom range becomes equivalent to 18mm, providing a useful zoom range for moviemaking.
 
Professional Control
 
Weighing only 1.87 lbs (847 g), the FE 12-24mm F2.8 GM offers numerous features for full professional control of shots. These include a customizable focus-hold button, focus-mode switch, zooming ring and focusing ring that are positioned for easy operation while shooting. The Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly to the most subtle adjustments when focusing manually so control feels immediate and precise. It is dust and moisture resistant [iii] and the front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants, making it easier to wipe off any fingerprints from the lens surface. The rear filter holder accommodates standard sheet-type ND, color correction and other filters for expanded expressive capability. A cutting template for sheet filters is supplied.
 
Pricing and Availability
 
The FE 12-24mm F2.8 GM is available in in August 2020 for a suggested retail price of $2,999.99 USD and $3,999.99 CAD.
