As expected, the official announcement of the EOS 5Ds and the EOS 5Ds R confirmed the leaked specifications.
Among the few newly revealed details are the shutter’s durability, intervalometer limitations and video recording specifications.
The cameras will be available a bit later than expected, but the pricing is a pleasant surprise.
Starting on the business end, the 5Ds and 5Ds R will cost $3,699.00 and $3,899.00, respectively.
This is compared to the 5D Mark III selling for $3,100 and the D810 selling for $3,000, so I definitely think the pricing is reasonable.
Both models are expected to be available as of June.

- Shutter durability rated at 150,000 (same as the 5D MKIII)
