The Canon EOS R5 is the hottest camera of the year (and possibly the last decade), but it does come with a substantial £4,199 price tag. Don't expect to see price reductions any time soon but, if you're looking for the best deal, UK consumers can take advantage of a great offer on the camera. 

Pre-order the Canon EOS R5 and you can claim a free EF-EOS R mount adapter worth £99 (which enables you to seamlessly use Canon EF lenses with native performance), but you'll need to be a member of Canon Professional Services, CPS.

Canon EOS R5 + free EF-EOS R adapter: £4,199

Canon EOS R5 + free EF-EOS R adapter: £4,199
The R5 boasts uncropped 8K video, uncropped 4K up to 120fps, a 45MP sensor for hi-res photography, and blistering 20fps electronic / 12fps mechanical burst shooting!
UK deal

As you're no doubt aware by now, the Canon EOS R5 is a monster for both video and stills, delivering uncropped 8K footage, 45MP images, 20fps burst shooting, and up to 8 stops of image stabilization.

While the original Canon EOS R kits came with an EF-EOS R mount adapter, there are no equivalent R5 bundles. However, even though the best Canon RF lenses are incredible, this adapter is invaluable as it enables you to use your existing Canon EF lenses with native performance. So getting it for free here is a brilliant bargain!
