And got robbed of its mount and battery life and ergonomics (yes ergonomics with less buttons than the EOS 5DIV). :(

Not to mention … the mirror :D
Actually, my R5 has better battery life than my 5DIV - my 5DIV has always had a battery drain problem as others here have found with theirs but, as always, there are those who have taken 2,000 shots and still got 90% charge left on theirs. The D850 doesn't have that problem.;)

Please Mr. Canon, wouldn't it be a nice departure from the EF line to end it with a beautiful 5 D V ???
I would even make a down-payment for it...
Why don't you listen to our cries of despair and sadness?:cry:

i really hope there are some other improvements in background that are not mentioned in log file. (eg the accuracy of AF in AI Focus mode, the number of shots in focus is really, really low for me. AI Servo is even worse. In both cases (Focus and Servo), even when shooting static object - sholdn't all shots from burst be in focus then? )

I am getting 1,000-1,500 shots per battery (extrapolating a bit here) on my R5. I definitely have a 5DIV with a battery drain issue, but 600-800 shots per battery on my 5DIV is pretty typical, sometimes I go over 1,000. But, the R5 is, so far, showing better battery life.

I rarely use my 5DIV now (Corona virus and all) but I am definitely keeping it!

Its most use had been on museums in Florence and in Rome with the max use in Rome. I had shots many hundreds of photos (and some were shot using liveview but I do not know the percentage and there was also some use of viewing them on camera) and I do not remember needing to change the battery. But since this camera had not been used for birding I had never shot thousands with it. A possible power drain can be the GPS. However I prefer to have GPS on camera despite all these connections with mobile, etc. These work until they don't (you have to not use the gps on your phone for something else)

Because they know that if they do it, two weeks after release people will pine away for the mark VI.

I also got excited by the picture. I'm going to be really sad if we never get a 5DV.
I doubt it will happen, but it would be a really nice DSLR send off if they did. It's too bad DSLRs have to die for mirrorless. I think they're still better for action shooting. And I like being able to look through the lens even when the camera is off.

Come on Canon where is R5 MkII ? :ROFLMAO:
You laugh but during the whole blowup over video there were people who were saying the (non) problem would be "fixed" in the Mk II and were wondering if it would come out next year.
