The Canon EOS R3 utterly dwarfs the Canon EOS R5, which isn't exactly a shock given that it's a camera with a professional form factor (ie it has a larger body with built-in vertical grip). However, what may come as a surprise is that it is smaller than its pro-body rivals from Nikon, Fujifilm, Olympus and even Canon itself. 

New size comparisons reveal that the Canon EOS R3 is smaller than the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III and Nikon D6 DSLRs, the medium format Fujifilm GFX 100 and the incongruous Micro Four Thirds Olympus OM-D E-M1X – all cameras with integrated grips, built with professional use in mind.
