Shutter sound with electronic shutter is already available. Startup time has also be addressed. The other is rarely mention on any forum, therefore I bet that very few people have taken time to go to the Canon Customer support page and file a request.
If enough people request them. Canon most likely will. Chattering on a rumor site does very little. However request made via Customer support get attention. I know for this to be factual. Canon USA responds very promptly. If one can prove or show that like functions already exist on similar cameras. Canon often does include those updates in a future firmware update. Such as the "Save settings to disk" and other like functions added recently. Functions requested via Canon Customer support. These are mostly firmware changes that will not impact the device temperature. Canon has been adding many R5 features regurlarly due to high request since it's release. It's not as if Canon is shipping any other model in sizeable numbers. Only a mere handfull of R3 or any other model will be shipped until the ship shortage ends.
Please show me where in the R5 menu I can turn on a fake shutter release sound when using ES.

Maybe he meant Canon has "talked" about it when he said "addressed" ?....... because it sure hasnt been fixed.

sorry, but he said it is already available with respect to the shutter sound. He said "addressed" in reference to the start up time.

Please tell me which firmware update for the R5 has added shutter sound with electronic shutter, and which firmware update for the R5 has improved start-up time. Neither appear to have been addressed on the R5, which is the subject of this thread.

It’s the firmware update that makes the body bigger, increases the frame rate to 30 fps, reduces the MP to 24 and costs $6000. :p

Unfortunately that's difficult to get to from here. You have to, one by one, replace R5 parts with R3 parts. :p
