Just got my r5, LOVE IT. Bought it for general purpose, may end up being my wildlife camera as well.

After six weeks with the R5 I sold my 1DX2 and 5dsr and bought a R6. I shoot 99% wildlife and the animal eye af and tracking are great. I’m still having problems with the R5 getting initial focus when I go from close to far or far to close, it just can’t do it and I have to get it close manually then it works. I haven’t shot the R6 enough to see if it has the same problem.

I’ll miss the build, battery and initial focus capabilities of the 1DX2 but I won’t miss the freight train noise shutter, mirror slap it made. I scared off wildlife many times with it and it was annoying.
