Looking at the Nikon Z7 the R5 is $1000 too expensive imo.

Yeah... I mean how much could superior IBIS, EVF, touch screen, ergonomics, dual card slots, FPS, build quality, 4k60+, 8K be worth... it should be priced the same as the far inferior product. Silly Canon.

Hmmm...we will need to wait and see if those claims are justified. The Nikon is praised for its ergonomics but that can be subjective anyway, the IBIS is not any better unless paired with stabilised lenses and you will have paid for that in the lens purchase, build quality I doubt is any better, video fair enough especially for the wedding photogs I guess, so more FPS, an extra card slot and better video for 1k? For Canon die-hards it’s a no brainer but for someone looking to buy into a brand I think the price might put some folk off.

I'm coming from Sony. 10-bit 4:2:2 C-log, 4K 60p, 4K 120p, IBIS, great lens selection, weather sealing, flippy screen, dual pixel autofocus, true RAW - there isn't another mirrorless on the market that comes close to those specs. The nearest thing is the S1H, with weak AF, external non-RAW and weighing in at a pound heavier. To me, it's a bargain! An 8K Z Cam is $6,000, RED starts at $25,000, just for the brain. lol
