Canon EOS R5 Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

October 9th, 2020

I was excited about the Canon EOS R5 from the moment it was announced.  Finally it seemed that Canon was putting together a truly competitive camera that was ready to show that they were serious about the mirrorless space.  The high powered R5 was rumored to have high resolution (45Mpx), high speed (12FPS in mechanical; 20FPS with the electronic shutter), high video resolution (8K30, 4K120), and was rumored to be the Canon full frame mirrorless camera with In Body Image Stabilization.  All of us were a bit shocked when all of this proved to be true…and that the camera wasn’t priced at $5000 USD!  It’s not cheap at $3899 USD, but Canon has packed a LOT of value into the EOS R5 and shown its seriousness of intent of really dominating the mirrorless space.

That’s not to say that all has been effortless.  The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected supply chains and caused release delays, and even months after the release, many people are still waiting for their preorder to arrive.  My personal journey to acquiring an EOS R5 was frustrating, as I had sold off equipment (including my EOS 5D Mark IV) in anticipation of the EOS R5 and thus had cash on hand waiting to purchase one.  But Canon Canada was closed down for months due to the pandemic, my original order with B&H Photo got mixed up, and by that point severe shortages of the camera meant that I missed my typical moment to be early in the queue.  But a blog post to my audience expressing my apologies for not having a timely review along with my frustrations in getting my hands on an EOS R5 led to a viewer connecting me with the camera store he works for here in Ontario, Canada.  The short version of the story is that Camera Canada became a new affiliate partner, was able to get me an EOS R5 in a timely fashion, and will be a future source for loaners as well.  All’s well that ends well…and B&H Photo managed to find me a loaner as well, so I actually ended up with two EOS R5’s for testing (one of which is my own) along with the RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS and RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS, two lenses I’ve not previously tested.

This is an image gallery to help you get a feel for the images the EOS R5 is able to produce in a variety of situations and with a variety of lenses, including:

  1. Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS
  2. Canon RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS 
  3. Canon EF 35mm F1.4L II
  4. Canon EF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS II
  5. Canon EF 100mm F2.8L IS Macro
  6. Samyang AF 14mm F2.8
  7. Samyang AF 85mm F1.4

There are a few other lenses scattered here and there, but those were the ones I did the heavy lifting with.  The photo galleries below will give you a closer look at the camera (along with some visual comparisons to the original EOS R), while the latter gallery shows photos taken with the two EOS R5 bodies and the various lenses mentioned above.  Stay tuned for my upcoming reviews!
