Any recommendations on the best cards to use with a Canon R5?

Thanks,

Should be CFexpress cards, right?

Yes, I miswrote that. CF Express type B.

I can't speak for the best, but Adorama has Sandisk CFexpress cards on sale cheap right now. The 512gb card is $199 after instant coupon and 256gb is $130 after coupon. I've been using them in a z8 and am happy, so far. E. J. posted recently about the specs and said they are slower than rated by quite a bit. I'd never know it from their performance and download speed, which are pretty fast.

Thanks, Joe. I am in Canada so not sure about Adorama as a option.
