R5 has the same image processor as the Canon 1DX Mark III which is canon’s flagship sports camera which makes it also very popular among wildlife shooters.

Canon R5 is gonna shoot 20 frames per second with an electronic shutter which has its issues in some situations but then if you can’t use the electronic shutter you could shoot 12 frames per second which is remarkably fast.
