Here are the very first Canon EOS R5 Mark II specs that has been rumored so far. The Rf mount full frame mirrorless camera is expected to arrive sometime in the Q2 of 2023.

You might think it’s too early to upgrade to the Canon EOS R5. Despite this, we have to admit that we are in a trend that gained momentum with the R6 Mark II. Canon won’t wait too long to update its RF mount mirrorless lineup. It’s fascinating to note that the sensor has been updated the same as the R6 II and has two DIGIC X processors.
