I don't preorder, I'm not a paid beta tester!

Hi Andrea, it depends entirely on what you want from a camera. I would say if you are going to buy one or the other don't base your decision on the high iso performance difference. Personally I am interested in an R5 but that is because it compliments the capabilities and functionality of my DSLR's much better than the R6.
I'd say the core difference for photographers is the MP, do you want or need 45 or is 20 enough? If video is your thing are you actually creating regular content reliably or do you want to push the edges of what is available in the form factor? If the former the R6 seems a better buy, if the latter then the R5 is the obvious choice.
But the price difference can buy you another lens so even if you have the money for the R5 I'd say think about what you actually want and need because the choice isn't as straight forwards as one body against the other, it is a case of one body and lens against a body only.
