I thought I would post a variety of images with the R5 and different lenses and types of images (click for larger images!)

1. This one with the Canon RF 24-105 F4 IS USM

3. Dusk at the beach in Tofino, British Columbia, handheld Canon RF 24-105 ISO1600 no extra NR, just darkened a little bit to what I remember the light was like.

4. Canon 400mm DO II F4 with a TE 1.4. no matter what I or the gull did the (eye) AF was always on the eye of the gull.

5. Canon 100-400mm IS II with a 2.0 TE Handheld, focus followed the surfer easily over 50 images or so, no images where out of focus. That said the combo lacks a bit in sharpness at 100% magnification, but not to bad result overall?

6. Canon 100-400mm IS II with a 1.4 TE Handheld. All images in the series where nice and sharp. I find that amazing that a F5.6 lens at F9 can do that well

Overall comment, it feels that this camera can do anything....

Nice shots. I've seen and read lots of good things about the R5. It's tempting as is the A9II. When you're so heavily invested in another system making that kind of move is tough and expensive. Hopefully Nikon can close that gap going forward.

Sorry for not being more clear the 24-105 F4 USM is an RF lens so yes I do. I have edit the OP to reflect this more clearly.

Impression: Focusing is VERY fast, corners are a tiny bit soft even stopped down, center is very sharp at F4 already, cant see much difference as I stop down to F8. IS claims to go to 8 stops, I have shot a few images of 1 second that are sharp, half a second is very reliably sharp.

Looks great. Do you have any RF lens?

I hear you, money talks loudly, in what You and I do, wildlife. I already had 3 Canon tele lenses so that made it easier, on the other hand I have a bunch of favorite lenses for my D500 and D850 so I 'm not quite sure what to do.

#3 has a very typical Canon look, and has not been processed much at all, I lowered the exposure a little bit to make it a little darker to adjust for what I remembered the light level was like on the beach. This kind of look is IMHO a typical Canon look, skin-tones are very good, and although the image is pretty sharp even at ISO 1600 it has a smoothness factor to it, that many and I like. I think it is not as contrasty as an image taken with the D850 would have been out of the camera. An interesting note is that there is no Camara specific profiles yet in Adobe RAW, this is the Adobe standard profile. It looks quite good I think. I always use the Nikon Standard profile with my D850, I don't like the Look of Nikon Images with the Adobe profiles, not enough punch to them.

For you Allan since I know you have a A9II: Rory Hill now has both cameras and thinks that the A9II is a little bit more accurate in the Eye AF, has better blackout performance, but then again the Canon is 45 MP vs 24 MP in the Sony (could be a benefit with 24 MP if you want smaller files of course). Both are great cameras IMHO

Very nice - they have a good quality to them I can't describe. I don't know if it is the camera or your processing. A keeper.
