It is not available, but it is coming. It sounds great. This looks like the next step from a 5D going to the mirrorless world.

The expected specs are impressive. I do not care about video, but 8K is coming.

Canon did not announce the details, but this is the expected specs:

Canon EOS R5 Specifications:

  • Named the Canon EOS R5
  • 45mp full-frame CMOS sensor
  • IBIS
    • 5 stops with IBIS alone
    • 7-8 stops of correction when used with in-lens stabilization
  • 12fps mechanical, 20fps electronic
  • Dual card slots
  • Scroll wheel added to the back
  • No touch bar
  • Liveview/Movie toggle like previous EOS DSLRs
  • 8K @ 30fps
  • 4K @ 120fps
  • 4K @ 60fps
  • Built-in 5GHz WiFi
  • New battery, but the same shape and compatibility as the EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Announcement ahead of CP+ next month
  • Launching in July 2020

If the resolution was a bit higher with those specs it would make a good 7D2 replacement. At 45mp the crop would be only 17. Almost tempted though, but not quite. Still hoping for a 7D2 replacement before mine dies.

I think this is supposed to be a 5D MkIV replacement. I doubt there will be a 7D2 replacement at this point, not as a DSLR anyway.

I am aware of that, but just a slightly higher resolution and it would be a match but with a higher frame rate. Tech has moved so quickly. I would still prefer an OVF and a true 7D3 but this shows potential for the future. I wonder if a crop sensor version is in the pipeline.

Love the IS. No company has gone to 7-8 stops of which I know. I think the max has been 6.5.

It might be too expensive for me, but gives me hope for future Canon cameras. :)

I reckon it will be £3499, at least I hope it will be that or less. I will be most interested to see how the EVF performs. Hopefully it will herald a future upgrade path for the 7D2 as currently no EVF I have tried is up to the task. The R5 will still not be the toy for me, but it may give an indication of the future.

There will also be a little less expensive R6 being announced as well. R6 I think will be my goal.

That actually looks like a great little camera.

It's interesting to see where they are going with these, that R6 looks very interesting; but the lenses that the are meant to be bringing out at the same time, apart from the 85mm, the other three seem oddly slow for what they are and they must have some faith in their IS.

I reckon it will be £3499, at least I hope it will be that or less.
I've a feeling it won't be under £4000.

I hope Canon continues to offer adapters with their new cameras so EF lens can be used with the cameras. I would think they would....

There are already third party adapter makers out there as well. The EF lens market is huge so adapters will sell for a long time.

At £4199 with an EF adapter the R5 is a little more than I expected. Looks fab though

What is really interesting to me is the EVF running at 120hz. That could be closer to the required speed for wildlife than I thought. I hope to try one in the flesh soon.

I guess interest in the R will fade away with the two new bodies except maybe the price will drop.......the R has better resolution and R6 almost better everything else.....tough choice depending how demanding on the focussing system your photography is.
