DPReview has completed its review of the Canon EOS R5. They come away very impressed with the camera, with the caveats that we’ve read about ad nauseam.
A couple of new things I hadn’t read about the EOS R5 from the DPReview is that dynamic range dips a bit when shooting with the 20fps electronic shutter as the camera goes from 14-bit to 12-bit when using the electronic shutter, which had overlooked until today.
There is also non-optional noise reduction applied to RAW files. Outside of those two things and how the camera handles heat for 8K and 4KHQ, there really isn’t much negative to say about the camera.
The Canon EOS R5 is well-suited for just about any type of photographer, whether you shoot portraits, events, weddings, sports, family gatherings, and more. We’ve felt a bit let down by Canon’s promises of the camera’s outright video capability, but for most users, it’s still a great option for getting good-quality video clips of almost anything you point it at. Power users that need the best video quality all the time won’t be a good fit, but otherwise the EOS R5 is a fantastic option for almost anyone looking for a quality full-frame high-resolution mirrorless camera.

Another batch of Canon EOS R5’s hit retailers this week, but from my understanding, the backorder lists are still pretty long. Hopefully, that changes before the end of 2020.
