Canon R5 In-Body Stabilization

Just got my R5 yesterday so today I was sitting on the floor getting familiar with it. At one point I thought I would see how the in-body stabilization works with a non-stabilized lens. In this case, the RF 85 f/1.2 L. This photo was shot handheld at f/2.8, 1/10sec in ambient light. Point of focus was the emblem on the spine of the center book. I learned two things: 1. The stabilization seems to work pretty well. 2. It used to be a lot easier getting up from on the floor!
Next I want to see how it works with my EF 100-400 L II, which is stabilized. From what I have read it should be even better.

I have the R6 with the 100-400 Mk II and that works great Birding.

The EOS R5 will change how we think about mirrorless, how we think about photography, how we think about life.

(Congratulations!)

Since there is one person with an R5 and one with an R6 posting here, I’ll ask this question. I have a Canon 5DIV, besides weight, are there other benefits to giving up the 5DIV to purchase either of the two mirrorless cameras.

Congratulation....

Here is one of my studio shots via EOS R5 + 85 1.2L II len (hand-held and PS Neural filter applied).
Love this new camera....

Jumping to the 45MP of the R5?
Having IBIS make every single one of your EF lenses into an IS-enabled model?
Access to the superior RF lenses?
Gaining eye tracking autofocus?
Gaining access to all your legacy SLR (film) lenses on a modern digital IBIS-enabled body?
Adapting all your EF / EFS lenses to a single full-frame EOS body?
Gaining access to an electronic view finder (EVF) where you can review images in the viewfinder? Can zoom 10x in the display to 'see' and precisely focus on the details with the camera held to your eye in a shooting position? (You can zoom those 10x details in the image review too.) Using the EVF for exposure, seeing the histogram, if desired, as you compose the image. Seeing blinking highlight warnings in the EVF, if desired, again while you compose rather than shooting and chimping.

How do I love mirrorless? Let me count the ways ...

I’ve had the same experience with learning about #2 ha ha!

Would it be a mistake to settle for the RP? Does it have decent in camera stabilization?I’m interested in landscapes, birds and wildlife, some portraits, and hopefully the Milky Way.

Let me know if I’m hijacking your post and I’ll ask the admin to remove this.

Who would think 26MP of full frame EOS glory is "settling"? A lot of Canon's RF lenses are IS-enabled for the lens, making the lack of IBIS in the EOS RP a non issue. Your adapted IS-enabled EF lenses work the same on the mirrorless body as well. There's always good shooting technique and a tripod option. The only obvious limitation of the EOS RP is the lack of continued advances in the Canon AF system as now reflected in the R5/R6 releases. Even with the older EOS RP, you pick up the ability to focus anywhere within the entire frame, not just specific AF points ala a DSLR.

It’s one thing to read about a camera body, it’s quite another to hear from someone who has one. Thanks a ton for the response. I think you sold me. Tell Canon they owe you a commission. Lol!

I also have an R which I bought about 2 yr ago. At that time I had a 5DIV, which is an excellent camera. One of the first things I noticed was the improvement in the auto-focus. The R , and presumably the R5, have a noticeably higher rate of accuracy, particularly when shooting moving subjects. Before COVID I was shooting a lot of basketball games and I could definitely see the difference. I ended up selling my 5DIV and , quite honestly, I didn't miss it after getting the R. As far as weight, as I recall, there is only about a 6oz difference between the 5DIV and the R. Haven't checked the numbers but the R5 feels a bit heavier then the R. It is also a bit bulkier but I like the way it feels. I know nothing about the R6, but, the R5 has a ton of options for customing the camera to exactly what you want and the auto-focus, combined with both in-body and in-lens stabilization, is well beyond anything the 5DIV can provide.
The 5DIV still is, and will be for a long time, an excellent camera. It will produce probably 99% of what the average photographer wants. I hated the idea of going mirrorless. Until I tried it. Now I am hooked. If you have a burning desire to try something new (and spend a bunch of money in the process), then go for it. R5 or R6 depends on your finances and what you shoot, which I know nothing about. If you choose to wait, well, you still have a very fine camera.

No problem with your post.
I don't know very much about the RP, but, I see that CHG CANON has provided a good response.

Nice shot! Facial detail is outstanding. Was that the EF or RF 85 1.2?
