From Dpreview about the Canon EOS R5 Review :

What we like

  • Outstanding overall image quality
  • Comfortable ergonomics
  • Impressive autofocus performance with little setup necessary
  • Deep video feature set
  • Great overall video quality
  • High-resolution viewfinder and fully articulating rear screen
  • Very fast sensor readout for video and electronic shutter modes
  • Excellent in-body stabilization
  • Fast burst shooting rates
  • Dual card slots: CFExpress, UHS-II SD
  • In-camera USB charging but a dedicated charger is still included
  • Excellent HDRTV-ready video and photo modes

What we don’t

  • Heat buildup is an issue for users that need the best video quality
  • Electronic shutter and 20fps bursts will lessen your dynamic range somewhat
  • Non-optional noise reduction applied to Raw files
  • Autofocus set-up can be complicated if you need the absolute best results
  • Customization options are a bit limited against competing cameras

Conclusion from DPReview:

The Canon EOS R5 is well-suited for just about any type of photographer, whether you shoot portraits, events, weddings, sports, family gatherings, and more. We’ve felt a bit let down by Canon’s promises of the camera’s outright video capability, but for most users, it’s still a great option for getting good-quality video clips of almost anything you point it at. Power users that need the best video quality all the time won’t be a good fit, but otherwise the EOS R5 is a fantastic option for almost anyone looking for a quality full-frame high-resolution mirrorless camera.

Good for
Landscape, event, portrait, and wedding photographers, as well as sports photographers that can benefit from the camera’s fast burst rate in its electronic shutter mode.

Not so good for
Dedicated video users wanting the best video quality will be hampered by overheating; hybrid photo/video shooters that split their time but still need top-quality video.
