Additionally, specifically what functionality is still 'on' during 20 fps, how compressed 20 fps is, etc.

In general, this thing has so many features/modes, you need a table for how each knocks down max fps or best file quality.

I'm really hoping for several white papers tomorrow, like we saw when the 1DX3 was announced. The video tables in that were super helpful to understand bit depths in different modes, etc.

That EVF sounds quite a bit like the Leica SL2 EVF (Identical dot count), which is the best I've looked through (though just in the store). Beat's the A9II's if I'm not mistaken.

5.1K oversampled 4K when shooting APSC/Super35. That's actually pretty interesting, though not sure what "bar sampling" is translated from. Is 5.1K a 1:1 read of the center for an APS-C image circle on a 45mp sensor?

Edit: Answering my own question.

A 1.6 crop of a 45 megapixel sensor is about 17 mp (http://www.base2photo.com/Photography/Calculators/MegapixelsAfterCrop)

5.1K is around 17mp.

So it seems like you can use APS-C/Super 35 lenses and get a 5.1K oversampled 4K image. That seems like a really sweet spot for a lot of folks complaining about unwieldy 8K, especially when tons of shooters are using S35 (Or M43) gear already. And hey, FF8K raw is there when you want the look. Hopefully cuts down on the heat generated as well—20 minutes at 73F is OK but I worry about direct sun.

The A9ll's EVF is relatively low resolution (not as good as the A7RlV) otherwise its refresh rate wouldn't be adequate for its 20fps *blackout free* shooting.

I'd actually assumed the Leica viewfinder was already 120fps! Didn't realize it was only 60.

Low pass filter on a 45 Mpx sensor. Maybe good for some but I so much prefer to ditch the filter as I rarely have problems with Moire and the filter does give image degradation.
Agreed. My interest in this camera just sank a bit. That said, I’m not that surprised - probably needed one to avoid aliasing on lower-res video samples. It is what it is - a camera for hybrid shooters.

Meanwhile, for stills folks...the 5DSR lives on!

Looks like Sony needs to go back to selling life insurance and PlayStations after today:

● With the newly developed effective pixel number of 45 million pixels full size CMOS sensor high speed signal readout, high speed processing of new image engine "DIGIC X", high performance "RF lens", the highest resolution performance in EOS series history Achieves both high image quality and high-speed continuous shooting.
● AF performance is improved as "dual pixel CMOS AF II" by high-speed signal readout of new CMOS sensor and high-speed processing of new image engine. When "Face + Tracking priority AF" is set, the distance measurement area is expanded to a maximum of approximately 100% (vertical) x maximum 100% (horizontal) of the screen. Furthermore, when shooting still images, the AF frame is automatically selected from a maximum of 1053 divided areas.
● Supports detection of human eyes, faces and heads. Compared with "EOS R", the detection performance of smaller eyes and profile is improved. In addition, it can detect the eyes, face and whole body of animals (dogs/cats/birds) to improve the capture rate of subjects.
● Achieved the low brightness focusing limit of EV-6. Achieves highly accurate focusing even in a dark environment where it is difficult for the naked eye to see the subject.
●High-speed AF of up to approximately 0.05 seconds is realized by optimizing the drive control of "Dual Pixel CMOS AF II" and "RF lens".
● Uses the AF algorithm installed in the "EOS-1D X Mark III". Comfortable shooting is possible with "Case 1 to 4", which have been preset with "Subject tracking characteristics" and "Tracking characteristics with respect to speed changes" in advance according to the scene, and "Case A (Auto)" that automatically switches according to the subject. Realization.
● When shooting with the electronic shutter, high-speed continuous shooting of up to about 20 frames/second is achieved with AF/AE tracking. You can shoot without worrying about the shutter sound in scenes such as facing wild animals and playing golf.
● When shooting with the mechanical shutter/electronic front curtain, high-speed continuous shooting of up to approximately 12 frames/sec.
● Built-in high-definition electronic viewfinder (EVF) with a field-of-view rate of about 100% that employs an organic EL panel of about 5.76 million dots. By setting the display frame rate to "119.88fps (smoothness priority)", it is easier to chase moving objects.
● "DIGIC X" realizes maximum ISO51200 (equivalent to extended ISO: 102400) when shooting still images.
● Supports still image/video recording in the "HDR PQ" method based on human visual characteristics. HEIF (10bit) recording that was done with RAW development software is realized in the camera.
● "Face lighting correction" is newly added to the auto writing optimizer function during RAW development. When the contrast of the face is high, it is possible to automatically correct the brightness of the face.
● "Strength" is added to the "Digital Lens Optimizer" that corrects lens aberrations.
● The world's first internal recording of 8K/30P video is realized by the high-speed signal readout of the CMOS sensor and the high-speed processing of the new video engine “DIGIC X”. Supports internal recording of movies in RAW data (12 bits) at 8K.
● Realizes 4K/120P high frame rate video shooting, enabling smooth video shooting.
● High quality 4K video can be generated from 8K rich data. Realize 4K/30P video by oversampling without cropping.
●In 8K/4K/full HD shooting, we realize smooth AF by "dual pixel CMOS AF II".
●Cannes can be used for rich-gradation video expression by utilizing Canon's original Log gamma “Canon Log”.
●For the first time in the EOS series, a correction mechanism that moves the image sensor in response to camera shake is adopted in the body. Achieves in-body image stabilization with 5 axes: horizontal rotation axis/vertical rotation axis/rotation axis/left/right/up/down. Even with a lens that does not have an image stabilizer, you can shoot comfortably from wide-angle to telephoto, depending on the combination of camera and lens.
● The world's highest 8.0-step image stabilization is achieved by the coordinated control of the optical image stabilization mechanism on the lens side and the in-body image stabilization mechanism. Comfortable shooting is possible even in shooting environments where camera shake is likely to occur, such as telephoto shooting and handheld shooting. When shooting movies, in addition to the cooperative control of the camera shake correction mechanism inside the body and lens, it is also possible to use the movie electronic IS together.
● Supports Wi-Fi/Bluetooth(R) connection to mobile devices such as smartphones. For the first time in the EOS series, it is compatible with the 5 GHz band wireless LAN standard as Wi-Fi with built-in camera, enabling high-speed and stable communication.
● In addition to FTP and FTPS, when using the wireless file transmitter “WFT-R10B”, it is possible to transfer by SFTP, realizing highly secure communication compatible with new authentication and encryption communication technology.
● Equipped with an automatic image transfer function from the camera to "image.canon". You can automatically transfer still images to "Google Photos" or "Adobe Creative Cloud" (membership plan) via "image.canon".
● Equipped with a shutter unit that achieved a shutter durability of 500,000 times. You can choose to open or close the shutter curtain when the power is off.
● Dust-proof/drip-proof structure is used to prevent water droplets and sand dust from entering the camera. In addition, a highly rigid magnesium alloy body that achieves both robustness and light weight ensures high reliability.
● Equipped with dual slots for CFexpress card (Type B) and SD memory card (UHS-II compatible).
● Equipped with a multi-controller that allows intuitive AF frame selection.

You gotta love the Sony fanboys, now it's all about stills resolution, "20MP & 45MP aren't enough", "nobody needs 8K", "it's all fluff features". If Sony came out first with a camera the same as the R5 it would be "a testament to their technological prowess", "Canon is doomed", "8K is important", "45MP is enough", "20MP is enough for the R6", etc.

Why is no one talking about this;
" 0 to + 40°c working range"

This has to be a typo right?

Also, even though I don't use GPS often on my 5DmkIV, I like having the option to. Shame they seem to be leaving it out on the R5.

This is the working temperature range on the Canon website for the EOS R:
Working Temperature Range: 32-104° F / 0-40° C

And this is all it says for the EOS RP (no indication of F or C):
Working Temperature Range: 85° or less

What would the typo be?

Doesn't matter really because all lithium battery-powered electronic devices are limited by the working temperature range of said battery.

Must be a typo. Otherwise the camera would be useless during winters in Northern EU areas, like Baltics and Scandinavia, and many other places in the world. My 1st DSLR Canon 40D worked fine even at -40C. Can't comment on 5DIV as unfortunately we haven't have any proper winter past few years.
