Canon EOS R5 Specifications

The EOS R5 takes over as the flagship in the mirrorless EOS R line up, but the specification is curiously biased towards video rather than stills. An AA filter means the 45MP resolution the resolving power will be affected, but we’ll have to wait for tests to see by just how much. It’s also rather expensive, being quite a bit more than the 60MP Sony A7R IV. Nevertheless, it has a hi-res 5.76 million dot EVF, like that of the Panasonic S1 series and Leica S2 plus it has the interesting Bluetooth v5.0 spec which should mean compatibility with wireless headphones.

If this is the equivalent of the Canon EOS 5D Mark V, as it’s being touted, then could we reasonably expect a more stills oriented model using the same body, but with an 80-90MP sensor? Canon wouldn’t want to release that just yet but could that be on their roadmap for early 2021?
