They both have their pros and cons, but both are some of the best full-frame mirrorless cameras (opens in new tab) today. It goes without saying that if you're after some topnotch video capabilities, then you'll need to pick the EOS R5. It's also perfect for those high-resolution shots – whether landscape or wildlife – for very detailed and crisp images.
Needless to say that might be overkill for some users, and that's where the EOS R6 comes in. It's a more sensible option for most photographers and also happens to be a much cheaper alternative to the flagship Canon EOS 1-D X Mark II (opens in new tab)I sports DSLR. It's also better for low-light photography, thanks to the lower pixel count (hence bigger pixels), and its dual card slots support the cheaper and more commonly available SD format.
And the number of native Canon RF lenses (opens in new tab) is progressively increasing with some truly innovative glass now available. So snap up one of the Canon cameras for less now before this double cashback ends on 30 November. For full terms and conditions see Canon's own cashback webpage.
