The new Canon EOS R5 is a beast!

EOS R5 full frame mirrorless camera features a 45MP full-frame CMOS sensor, 8K 30p and 4K 120p videos, In-body IS up to 8-stops and can shoot up to a blistering 20fps.

Ding, dong. Mirrors are dead! Holy sh#t balls this thing rocks!

I used to be seriously into the photography world rocking a 5DMk2 was the pinnacle of my amateur shutterbug endeavours, but holy heck would I kill to play around with this bad boy!

They also announced a new EOS R6, which is more your prosumer range but still a mighty piece of kit for those wanting to join the mirrorless revolution.
