THIS would be awesome and what I always wanted.... I think Nikon had already something like this back in the days? (was always a little bit better for sports with flash I think (1/320s sync etc.?!))
I am hoping for more built-in features that belong into a pro body:
- a built-in intervalometer that saves the hassle of carrying around an external trigger ...

The PC Sync is on the side of the camera, seen here with the flash bolt icon:
The front is definitely the remote port, whichever type it is, much like on the 5D Mark IV.
Sorry for that, you are absolutely right. I didn t see the pic from left side. I assumed, because the flap is really similar to the one, which is on BG for EOS R...

True.
BUT: Voltages are the same i.e. 7.2V for the LP-E6N (EOS R) and this one.
That means the increase in energy is proportional i.e. 2130/1865 -> 14% more energy.
But what we still dont know: Will this lead to a higher CIPA rating regarding number of photos that can be taken with a charge? I think: Unlikely, because the power consumption of the R5 might be quite higher given new features like IBIS etc.
I think the extra power consumption by IBIS will be more than offset by a newer, more energy-efficient PROCESSOR. Think of the newly released 1DX Mk III, it has the same size battery - exactly as the predecessor but is double the capacity. Further, as I understand it, the processor is not only much quicker (unlimited buffer, basically) but much more efficient as well. So I will not be surprised if the battery life of the R5 will not be somewhere between 140-160% improvement over the current R, perhaps even as much as 200%. I don't think it will be quite that much however. You still have battery suck from the EVF, the extra communication between lens and body, and as you mention, IBIS. But I do think a my initial guess is reasonable.

"Jesus, God, help, my lord, Jesus, help me I'm falling down the steps oh lord Jesus Christ please !"

FOR THE LOVE OF BOKEH WILL SOMEONE LEAK A PRICE SO I CAN START HINT-DROPPING ON THE WIFE OH HELP ME PLEASE!
My guess is the price will come in somewhere in this range $3,699USD - $3,899USD. Body only... (well, probably bundled with the EF - RF adapter).

I think it's likely that the R5 is going to have an improved CIPA rating, seeing how the latest gen of Canon bodies (1DX3, 90D) seem to be quite a bit more power efficient than their predecessors.

AFAIK Nikon's wireless flash commander mode is just like Canon's: optical communication using the builtin popup flash. It's just in Canon's case that feature's limited to crop bodies only because FF Canons don't have a popup flash…

The RS80-N3 is older, from film days. The RS60-E3 was developed for a less bulky plug, and it can rotate.
+ Many cheap but good non-OEM wired remotes for the RS-60-E3. And hopefully this hints at on-board intervalometer, since Canon makes wired intervalometer for RS-80 plug, but not the RS-60. Intervalometer on-board, so no need for the bulkier RS80 plug is the thinking, maybe.

Hint-drop 6k. It will be cheaper, so you will have spare bucks you can
spend on lenses.........

Between the body and the 100-500 I'll probably top at 6K... If it's more than that I'll be waiting on the xmas sales that we all know are coming.

Not sure they could afford to do that. The camera has to compete with the A7mkiv so can’t be massively more.

The new LP-E6NH seems to have 15% more juice compared to the LP-E6N, so I'm expecting a much better CIPA rating on the R5 than the R has.

Interesting that this camera has shown up for certification and the R6 has not, since the rumors were that the R6 would be released first.
Yes, as time goes on there continues to be a distinct lack of confirmation about the R6 ...
