If the latest reports are true, the Canon EOS R5 Mark II could possess resolution in the 60MP range – which would directly challenge Sony and Leica for the highest resolution full frame camera crown. 

In addition, the Canon EOS R5 Mark II will apparently shoot at 8K 60p (putting it in the same territory as the Nikon Z8 and Z9) with a further rumor that it could even hit 8K 180p. While the latter seems a little on the wishful thinking side to us, so did the early leaks that the original Canon EOS R5 would be an 8K machine – so who knows?
