    We go to the Galapagos on 5th December and I have a dilemma. I had made the decision to get the R5 but with the announcement of the R6 Mark II I have had a change in mind and would prefer the R6 Mark II if available.

    Release is end of November in the U.K. From previous experience will I likely get hold of the R6 Mark II by early December?

    Am I correct in assuming that the new autofocus features on the R6 Mark II will be on the R5 (firmware upgrades)? Only hesitation of getting the R5 is whether a Mark II will be released soon but is inevitable…

    Would it be worth contacting a few sellers of the camera and asking them when they expect to have stock in. Also, how many cameras do they expect in. A limited number?

    Hi Gary,
    Thanks. Yes, is on pre-order (3rd November)... I have not bought a product at launch before so was interested in knowing what the chances are that I will get the camera. I will contact the supplier nearer the end of November.

    If the R6ll is not around by then, any chance of renting a R5 to cover your options?

    I have asked the dealer about this and a possibility.
