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

Re: Suggest you get a grip on the R5

No pun intended It handles so much better with long lenses. I bought one right after my first birding trip with the R5 and 500/4.

It's funny you mention that, I was hand holding it for an extended period with the 24-70 2.8 last night and thought "I could really use a grip on this" then I realized if I end up using this for wildlife I'll be handholding a lens that weighs 4x the 24-70.  Ordered a grip immediately.
