Hello. I have been shooting video with a 5D Mark 1 all these years and it generally suited my work (for more pro work I would rent an Alexa). Now with its board gone, I am looking for a new camera to buy.

Since Mirrorless is the way, I was considering the EOS RP (The sound monitoring head phone jack is very important and it would be wonderful to get slightly higher FPS than 25).

However, with the EOS R5 on the horizon, should I wait? (Considering my cameras typically last a very long time. might as well but the most current and feature full)?

What are people's experiences with the RF mount? I have some normal Canon EF Mount lenses.

R5. Or even R6. Point is that if you are into video you might want IBIS. And compared to the EF lenses the RF lenses then to be better for video in terms of AF. But... they are also not mechanically coupled when it comes to MF.

And I think if you can afford the R5, you should be consider the R vs the R5/R6.
