Another feature that beats Nikon Z.

The video on operability is interesting.

The last striking argument for DSLR is the OVF. That (subjective) advantage will tip over when EVF become more useful than OVF. We'll see when that happens.

What I've noticed on Canon website and specification PDFs:
  • Has focus peaking.
  • Has something called "focus guide", maybe shows focus distance in EVF?
    • Edit: "Focus distance display: With RF lenses"
  • 28-70/2 and 50/1.2 have ring type USM
    • Edit: They seem not to support full time manual.
  • 24-105/4 has nano USM
  • Time coding for video
  • Av 1/8-stop increments for video. Never heard of this, is it standard function?
  • 4K max ISO 12800
  • EVF can be set to standard, warm or cool tones. M5 does not have this.
  • Flash sync speed is nowhere specified, so probably not great.
  • Canon Log
Edit: This video shows Focus guide, distance scale and other features.

"Focus guide" is not focus distance display. It is a set of markers indicating to which direction to adjust the manual focus at the selected focus point and by how much.
