The sensor resolution of EOS R is greater than that of GH5 II. The difference of 10 MP is quite a lot. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
At the second camera (GH5 II), the minimum ISO value is lower, which gives more opportunities for shooting in daylight. A larger maximum ISO allows you to take good pictures in the dark. At Canon R, the maximum ISO is greater by 14400. GH5 II has image stabilization(5-axis Sensor-shift), EOS R doesn’t, it is a big minus. Both cameras feature a 3-inch articulated screen.
