Crop factor is a problem.

although the extra money for the R5 hurts, it’s probably a better option as of now (from what I gather from all the replies here).

I am hoping Canon would announce another option. Perhaps in between RP and R5.

i guess till then I will have to rent Mark IV bodies.

Isn't that the R6?

Canon EOS R6 Specifications:

20mp full-frame CMOS sensor
IBIS
12fps mechanical and 20fps electronic.
4K @ 60p
FullHD @ 120p
Dual card slots
No top-down screen
Lower resolution EVF than the EOS R5
Build quality not as good as the EOS R5
Bluetooth 4.2 (EOS R5 to get Bluetooth 5.0)
LP-E6NH Battery (Same as the EOS R5)
The latest rumored announcement is July 2020

For anyone that don't need more than 20MP (or crazy video specifications) the R6 should be a very good option and for sure at least 1000$ less expensive than the R5.

BTW also the EOS R is a good camera if speed is less important than the 30MP resolution it is a good option and can be found at 1700$.
