Translated rom Newswitch.jp:
Canon has decided to launch the EOS R5, a full-size mirrorless camera under development compatible with 8K video shooting, as early as possible before the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics. The support system for equipment rental and maintenance is planned to be the largest ever for a sporting event. For professionals, single lens reflex cameras are the main focus, but mirrorless cameras, which are quiet and lightweight, are also being used. The Tokyo Olympics aims to exceed 70% in the use of news cameras.
Nine new models of full-size mirrorless interchangeable lenses will be launched in the next 20 years. As with the R5, the high-power telephoto zoom lens with a focal length of 100 mm to 500 mm is aimed at launching before the Tokyo Olympics.
