Have to look at the facts, yes overheating, very expensive plus all the R lens are to, crap battery life, i will keep my DSLrs, you can keep mirrorless not for me,tried the R hated it, 5DIV will do nicely thanks.

I rented the R for 10 days. Hated every minute of that.  The R5 is so much better than the R that there is no comparison. The battery life is not even an issue.  I have not even come close to running the battery down and I come home with 1000s of shots.

No overheating for stills. 
Amazing AF! That alone with blow your mind.

I am going to sell some stuff.  Maybe 5DM4 and 6D, then 80D. Perhaps keep the others.

The 5DM4 doesn’t hold a candle to the R5. Sorry.
