R6 or R5 ?

Hi all,

I have started saving for my first R body as my beloved 5D Mark iii is showing it’s age and now I am trying to decide which to get.  Now over that last few months my photography tastes have changed as I mainly done model photography but now after a serious amount of publications that while I love doing it, it no longer bares a challenge to me.

So now I am thinking about photography in other areas such as more sports, gig photography of bands etc and wildlife as I have started taking a deep interest in photographing birds at nature reserves and am looking at travelling abroad for more unique species.

So now I have the dilemma of what to get either the R6 or R5, as the R5 has better cropping ability for small birds due to the higher MP, but from what I understand the R6 has better iso performance in low light which could be deemed essential for band photography or sports in low light.  As I am cutting down on model photography, I will be looking at doing Sports, Wildlife, Band photography on a weekly basis.  While I won’t be looking at printing images myself, images would be sent to various magazines for the possibility of publication.

Can anyone in the know of Band / Wildlife photography that uses a R5 / R6 share their experiences please ?

Many thanks

With Wildlife photography you don’t need to ask the creatures to sign release forms.
