Canon has just announced the EOS R5, a 45MP a full-frame mirrorless camera that we have to confess we’re overly excited about. It’s the spiritual successor to the company’s 5D-series of do-everything DSLRs and offers a mix of speed, resolution, autofocus capability and video features that will appeal to a lot of different types of photographers.

Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera system is starting to take real shape. No camera in recent memory has received or, dare we say it, deserved this amount of hype. The Canon EOS R5 is a powerhouse performer in every possible respect; its 8K video outclasses many of the best cinema cameras, its shooting speed puts it on par with the best cameras for sport, its 45MP sensor outmuscles all but a few of the best mirrorless cameras, and its 8-stop in-body image stabilization is the new IBIS champion. In short, the R5 has all the ingredients to be the best Canon camera we’ve ever seen –and we can’t wait to have our hands-on with it.
