EOS R5 + Canon RF 100-500mm L IS Lens = Canon EOS 5Ds R + Canon EF 100-400mm L IS II Lens
 
The EOS R5's extended viewfinder rises modestly higher than the 5Ds R's viewfinder, but this increase is advantageous in use.
 
Let's change the RF vs. EF equation to weights:
 
In ounces: (26.0 + 48.2) - (32.8 + 56.1) = 74.2 - 88.9 = -14.7 oz
 
In grams: (738 + 1,365) - (930 + 1,590) = 2,103 - 2,520 = -417g
 
Overall, the RF lens and R camera combination gives us an additional 100mm of focal length range in a similar-sized package that weighs nearly a pound (over .4 kg) less.

Renting is a great option for trying new gear or for getting otherwise unaffordable gear to use for short periods of time. Try something with an "R" in the name.

From Sony:
 
Sony Electronics Announces New LA-EA5 Lens Adaptor for A-Mount Lenses
 
New Adaptor Enables Advanced Autofocus Capabilities When Attaching A-mount Lenses to Latest E-mount Bodies
 
SAN DIEGO – September 1, 2020 – Today, Sony Electronics Inc. announced the new LA-EA5, a 35mm Full-frame A-mount lens adaptor that allows users to easily pair advanced E-mount camera bodiesi with A-mount lensesi.
 
Using the new LA-EA5 A-mount adaptor, users can now access the acclaimed autofocus and high-speed shooting capabilities found in Sony’s latest E-mount camera bodiesi with A-mount SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) and SAM (Smooth Autofocus Motor) lensesii, as well as A-mount lenses that do not have internal focus motors.
 
Full support is provided for focal plane phase-detection AFiii, wide-area focal phase-detection AFiii coverage, Real-time Eye AF for both humans and animals, Real-time Tracking and AF/AEiv (auto exposure) tracking for SSM/SAM lenses on nine most recently introduced E-mount camerasi at up to 11fpsv depending on the camera model. When used with the Alpha 7R IVvi or Alpha 6600vi, for the first time, these capabilities are possible with lenses that do not have internal focus motors, such as the Sonnar T* 135mm F1.8 ZA and Planar T* 85mm F1.4 ZA.
 
Sony LA-EA5 Lens Adaptor for A-Mount Lenses Technical Illustration
 
The LA-EA5 combines a compact design, featuring an aperture drive unit and a newly developed compact AF drive unit. To ensure comfortable operation when used on an E-mount camera body, the new adaptor’s diameter matches that of the A-mount, perfectly aligning with the edges of the mount. The LA-EA5 allows easy operation on full-frame E-mount bodies, even when a vertical grip is attached to the camera body.
 
Pricing and Availability
 
The LA-EA5 is available in October 2020 for a suggested retail price of $249.99 USD and $329.99 CAD.
 
Order the Sony LA-EA5 A-Mount to E-Mount Adapter at B&H.
 
Notes
 
i As of Sept. 2020, focal plane phase-detection AF is supported for SSM/SAM lenses on the Alpha 7 III, Alpha 7R III, Alpha 7R IV, Alpha 6100, Alpha 6400, Alpha 6600, Alpha 9, Alpha 9 II, and Alpha 7S III. Focal plane phase-detection is supported for lenses that do not have internal focus motors on the Alpha 7R IV and Alpha 6600.
 
ii STF lenses are manual focus only. Teleconverters are not supported.
 
iii Autofocus is not available during movie recording.
 
iv For AE tracking, the aperture is fixed for the first frame while shutter speed and ISO are used for exposure adjustment.
 
v Maximum continuous shooting speed is 10 fps with the Alpha 7R IV, Alpha 9, and Alpha 9 II, and 11 fps with the Alpha 6600. Continuous shooting speed may change depending on the attached lens.
 
vi The Alpha 7R IV must be updated to software V1.20 or later, and the Alpha 6600 must be updated to software V1.10 or later.
