This will allow canon to offer IBIS without installing physical stabilization cost.
Digital stabilization that is applied to video is not very helpful for stills.

When Canon says this will be their first IBIS body, they mean the physical hardware to move the sensor inside the camera.

We've seen them pour years and years of patent work into this. It had to result in a product eventually.

That'd be an instant purchase on my part. But, I don't expect it. I am with the large numbers of people who are in the 3,300-3,900 range, and at those levels I will wait a while.
Looking at the Z7 at $2800 with its IBIS and MP count and all that jazz. I could see the R5 being in $3000 to $3500. Just to be inline with competitors. I do not see it in the same price bracket as the pro sports bodies, it is not a pro sports body. The 5D mark II didn't suddenly come out at 1D prices just because it had video and 1Ds megapixels and this is consistent with the 5 series.

This seems to linked back CR as a source. So...solid as houses. :)
However, thinking of 150mp in pixel shift mode. That points to around 38Mpixel sensor in R5. 150/4=xx. I would be happy with that. However highly unlikely at this stage.
The sensor would need to be a little more than one-quarter the final resolution to allow for the "overhang" between the farthest movement of the sensor in each direction. Just for simplicity's sake, let's say you have 5x4 inch sensor. Let's say it's maximum shift is one-half inch in each direction (left, right, up, down). There would only be a 4x3 rectangle in the center that is always within one edge of the sensor.

the 5dmkiv launched at $3499, the 1dx2 at 6499 which is the same as the 1dx3 is released at. Why should suddenly the R5 jump waaay up or be cheaper than the 5d4? Makes no sense, the R5 will be between 3500-3800.

Why would it jump way up or suddenly be way cheaper?

You may be right, but I don't think the price of the camera will be a that big a factor in people choosing among the R5, the Z7, and sticking with what they have. Quite a few R5 buyers will already have 5d3's or 5DIV's. And then the growing number of RF lenses will be a factor as well.

Yes, you’re right. I remember now, it’s insane here because the 1dx2 cost 63.000 Norwegian kroner and the 1dx was 55.000, now the 1dx3 is 83.000! And 20.000 NOK is nearly $2000.

I very much agree. Personally I will go all in on “a” system and R and RF is certainly ahead. But that Nikon Z 200-600 might me amazing. In the same turn the Canon 100-500 will be weather sealed and well built and on a body i know which buttons to press.

I'm curious about R5 although I want 1DX3. But makes me think...

Is there any indication about indoor low light sport AF? Can R5 compete against 1DX3 on AF tracking accuracy?

From all my fussing and fuming when I chose the 1DX2 over the 5D4, all I can say is the 1DX has features that are very appealing but it doesn't have the MPs some of us want. That alone is steering me clear of the 1DX3 and hoping the R5 has some of those features (of course not all). I like the idea of a flip out screen etc. so as usual it's compromise, compromise, with no "flagship" having everything. Not to mention if you really want full viewfinder coverage of AF etc. The compromises drive me crazy. ;)

BTW, although I'm happy with the 1DX2, I've never felt that the speed of AF acquisition was as fantastic as it might be.
