Wait for the 5D mark IV i guess the specs will meet your demands.. Still notice that with 50MP sensors you need to control your camera shake even with IS handheld.

The need for extreme stability is a bit exaggerated though. The 5DS sensor has the same pixel size as the 7DmkII sensor. I use the same shutter speed rules of thumb for the 5DSR as for any APS-C body. The 50MP sensor does demand better lenses though, because it's using the edges and corners of a lens's projected image, the parts an APS-C body crops out. Canon's latest lenses are more highly corrected for corner sharpness, which is why the 5DS recommended lens list has the 16-35mm f/4L, and not any of the previous 16-35/2.8, 17-35, or 17-40 variants; because the 5DS will make the poor peripheral sharpness of these lenses a lot more obvious than a lower MP body will.

And of course all of this is true only if you're making use of the full resolution of the 5DS all the way to your final images. If you're only making small prints from the photos as-framed in camera, or <20MP final digital images, you can shoot it just like a 5DmkIII. I've taken shots that were slight focus misses when viewed at 1:1, but shrunk down to the size I use for models' printed headshots (3600x2700 pixels, 9.72MP, for 9"x12" @ 300dpi prints) they looked fine. I've had to train myself not to cull photos by inspecting them at 1:1, because I'd end up throwing out perfectly usable shots.

I totally agree. As a 5DS R shooter I don't seem to have any more stability issues with it than any other camera I've ever used. I still get tack-sharp images with my handheld shooting. Good shooting technique helps a lot. :)

Fast strobes do too :-) With the sub-millisecond flash duration of the Rovelight, I could be dancing a jig while I shoot and still get sharp shots.

One thing to help here. Micro-Adj the crap out of your lenses. This will help big time.
