Yesterday the first copies of the new Canon EOS R5 were delivered from the retailers. Unfortunately, I wasn’t among the first ones, even though I had ordered the camera from a major store just 15 minutes after the online presentation had started. 🙁
Yesterday, instead of the camera, I received the disappointing news from my dealer:
“Dear Mr. Neukamp,
unfortunately, you were too far behind on the order list to be included in the first delivery.
We hope, however, that there will soon be enough supplies and that we will be able to supply you in the first half of August.
You will be notified in advance in any case.”
Now I hope to be part of the second delivery swing. Until then, I can continue to follow the reports of the happy users, some of whom have already ordered and received the camera “blind” before the final product launch. The reports so far are enthusiastic by the bank, only the overheating problem with video recordings in 8k and 4k HQ is criticized.
Since I will use the camera almost exclusively for photos and will record videos, if at all, only as short clips, I don’t see any problems. Exuberantly praised and especially interesting for me, however, is the eye autofocus, which actually seems to work very well, and the image stabilizer. By the way, dpReview has a new test report by Chris and Jordan about the R5, which makes my excitement even greater:
And the prejoy should be the best joy ! ???
