Canon is planning not one, but two successors to the Canon EOS R5. According to the latest rumblings, we can expect a follow-up to the video-focused R5C in addition to the base R5. 

We all know that the original Canon EOS R5 sold like gangbusters, so the reports that a Canon EOS R5 Mark II was in the works came as no big surprise. However, it appears that the Canon EOS R5C – the video-focused version of the camera, with improved overheating performance – was also a big hit. Thus, it seems that a Canon EOS R5C Mark II is also on the cards.
