Better AF, animal AF, full screen AF, flip screen, 45mp, no MFA required - ever, 12 and 20 fps, IBIS, 3 extra pins for faster transmission speeds (need an RF lens for that), LCD touch control, and a bunch of new video features if you are into that.

Just top of my head, adding a couple more to your list: R5 is smaller and lighter (as I age, things like these make a significant difference) and built in IS.

I have touch control and waiting to hear about the AF after users have it in hand for a few weeks.
IBIS ehh.
20 FPS might be nice.
None of what you listed however, makes it worth and extra $2000 to me. And then there is the really high cost of the lenses.

I wasn’t trying to convince you to buy one. Just answered your question. It is not for everyone. We all have our own reasons to buy or not buy something. You will do what works best for you.

I'm not trying to convince anyone to buy R5, either.

Whether the R5 is worth upgrading over the 5D IV really depends on what you shoot. I do have the 5D IV, and I love this camera for just about every shooting situations. As a bird photographer, however, the 5D IV is lacking in some significant ways that the R5 can remedy, particularly the FPS, the full frame AF, the eye tracking and lot more mpix. All of these advanced features in the R5 alone are going to make a huge difference. Each time I go out to shoot birds, particularly BIF, I miss those features very acutely. For me and my shooting needs, although I hardly ever going to use its video features, it's still worth the cost. Speaking of video, although I rarely shoot films, I did once engaged the 5D IV to film a Northern Flicker couple's courting behavior because the stills simply won't do justice in telling the story. The couple's ritual took place amidst a bunch of branches, and the 5D IV had such a hard time at focusing that at least half the video came out out of focus. In those rare times that I do need to shoot a video, I know that the R5 can handle the same situation to a highly satisfying result.

If your shooting situations don't engage these features, then there's absolutely no need to replace the 5D IV.

This

Its a significant upgrade for the body. I dont think people realize how big IBIS is going to be. And eye focus is great for portrait work. These updates effectively killed off the DSLR line up in my opinion...whos gonna buy one now ?

It's also priced the same (or lower?) than the 5D4 was at launch, which really surprises me. Looks like bargain.

The 5D4 was $3,500. R5 is $3,900. We chatted about this here or another thread. It seems that every release of a 5D was about $500 or so more than it’s predecessor. You can contribute about ½ to inflation.

My mistake, for some reason I thought it was 3.9

If your shooting situations don't engage these features, then there's absolutely no need to replace the 5D IV.

So, I shoot, landscapes, events, night time shots, sometimes BIF and just about anything else for memes or backgrounds for our church media team. I have noticed autofocus issues with my 5DM4, even tonight getting sunset images it hunted a few times using my 70-200 mk3 lens. Is the R5 a camera I should be looking at? The 45mp sensor vs the 30, the fully articulating screen are just a couple of features I really like.

AF above f/8 in viewfinder mode, for starters.

8K video is 39MP or larger with DCI! In all-I mode, that's 30 decent-quality jpegs per second!
