I too am hopeful I will get my R5 next week. The last detailed update I received from B&H was on 08/28/20 and it stated I would have my unit shipped the last week of September. Although I have received an email or two since then, they were generic and did not commit to a ship date. I have taken delivery of all of the necessary accessories (adapters, CFExpress Card, L Bracket, a quad of UHS II SD cards, USB-C power block and cables, and screen protectors) and that was a sizable investment in itself. I shoot primarily Nature/Wildlife from a kayak and really want to get the waterfowl migrations and Fall colors with the R5 into this years collection. I shoot very little video, so I am very excited to experience the technological leap from my current 7DM2 rig. No RF lens yet but I will fill some of that in over the winter, preferably from used/refurbs. Right now I am wound tighter than a mother eagle with a three-egg clutch!
