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.

I own a 7D2 and 5D3. I'n thinking of going to one body only. The IDXII has a 20 megapixel sensor and I don't need 14 FPS. I do all my wildlife shooting with my 7D2 and I do crop it a lot. I need A FF that I can crop until I get a bigger lens. Currently I have the 100-400 II and a 1.4 III. I don't use the TC often and prefer not when BIF.

I don't mind 5 FPS but I would have preferred 8. I don't need 100's of bird shots just a handful is good enough for me. How is the AF? Accurate initial AF acquisition? I don't mind waiting a second for it to settle in. Subsequent bursts accurate as well? Compared to the 7D2?

Thanks in advance

I would go with the 5D MkIV for a one-body solution. It's got significantly better dynamic range than either the 7D2 and the 5DS-R, both of which I've owned and shot tens of thousands of shots with. The other plus, compared to the 7D2 is that the AF is much better, particularly in low light. For BIF, your keeper rate will be significantly better.

I thought the OP link was worth bumping for. This thread caught my eye because the related 5DS is the body I kept last autumn to use alongside an EOS R. This week, Canon Rumors noted brand new 5DSR are available for close to $1700 which is an incredible deal, even if grey market. Like a 2nd EOS R, the idea of a 2nd 5DS R for $1700 is very tempting.

I do miss my 5DsR, the no filter option should have been an option on my 5D IV. I loved that resolution, but it seemed to need a lot of light to get proper exposure. To get what I mean.. Like the sensor had a T-Stop loss. I found I had to bump ISO for something as bright as say ISO 100 for 5DIII or IV, I was at 320 or 400. Maybe not that serve but seemed like it.

Must say it's very tempting to order 5DS if not the 5DSR. On Amazon, an International version with 1 year warranty has 5DS new for $1399 which is just about what I sold my used 5D mk iii for last autumn. Its worth adding that there's a hodge podge of positive and negative on the internet related to that sort of seller. In several years, I haven't bought gray market yet. And I found buying from Canon, B&H, Adorama and a local Oregon camera store brought calm seas for every new lens and camera purchase so far.
