The Canon EOS R5 is probably the best still camera Canon has ever made, mirrorless or DSLR. It's also the first R-series camera that feels like it was built from the ground up with bespoke components. The R5 uses Dual Pixel Autofocus II, Canon's latest on-chip phase-detection technology.

If you've been waiting for a mirrorless from Canon that handles as well as your trusted SLR, this is it. Canon's designers did a good job with the R5, putting the controls you want at your fingertips. The camera connects to smartphones and tablets, so you can transfer shots or remotely control the camera.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
Canon has pulled out all the stops with the EOS R5, but it had to. It's Canon's best camera for stills shooters, and a more-than-capable hybrid option for those who like to mix that up with some video, too. Its 738g weight with a card and battery compares extremely favorably to the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV's 890g. Professional filmmakers looking for a small, hybrid camera whose priority is 4K video shooting should consider the Sony A7S II instead.
