Canon EOS R5 test on DPReview

It took a long time, but today the in-depth test report of the Canon EOS R5 was final­ly pub­lished on DP Review. How­ev­er, the test was done with a pre-pro­duc­tion mod­el. Appar­ent­ly even the DPRe­view crew has prob­lems to get a pro­duc­tion model.

As expect­ed, it con­cludes that the Canon EOS R5 is one of the best cam­eras cur­rent­ly avail­able on the mar­ket. It is fast, has an excel­lent aut­o­fo­cus, offers high res­o­lu­tion, excel­lent video qual­i­ty with many fea­tures and has very good ergonom­ics. Only the well-known over­heat­ing prob­lem in the high res­o­lu­tion video modes is criticized.

In the over­all rat­ing, the EOS R5 received the DPRe­view Gold Award and togeth­er with the Sony a7 R IV, with a score of 91%, the high­est rat­ing of all mir­ror­less sys­tem cam­eras. Only the EOS 1DX Mk III received an even high­er score of 92%, but it is designed for a dif­fer­ent appli­ca­tion sce­nario (action / sports / harsh envi­ron­men­tal conditions).

More infor­ma­tion and tips on the con­fig­u­ra­tion of the EOS R5 can also be found in my test report here on my web­site.
