DPreview reviews the Canon EOS R5

Two of my favorite reviewers took the EOS R5 out and gave it a good review, shot in 286F around the surface temperature of Venus, according to Chris.

(I don't think it was really that hot)

Some notes;

  • Best full frame IBIS system that Chris has seen to date.
  • IBIS + IS does actually work with EF lenses, around 6 stops of IBIS.
  • I think Chris wanted the beer more than low light samples
  • Feels like the full resolution is showing up in the EVF
  • Autofocus excellent
  • Animal AF doesn't work with bear rugs
  • Sensor quality excellent - comparable to its peers
  • AA filter doesn't seem to have a sharp impact
  • fastest scan rate of any of the high-resolution sensor cameras
  • 8K is insanely sharp
  • 4K 120 is excellent
  • 4K HQ - Jordon loves
  • 1080P, 4K lineskipped does not overheat
  • Fighting the overheating with video
  • No video backups
  • Still have 29:59 record limit
  • No C-Log 2 or 3
  • DPAF 2 Autofocus is excellent for video
  • IBIS is excellent for video
  • Rolling shutter is acceptable
  • Jordan feels the video is more a novelty on the R5


Photographic wise they loved it, video wise, the overheating is limiting.  If you need a true hybrid camera, this right now is probably not it.
