Well, if you can provide me with a link to report this common problem on the R5 , I surely will report it. I look forward to your reply
Unsurprisingly, the Support phone number is on the Canon Web site.

Friends, I did report the problems I've been having to Canon support (via email). I got a prompt reply from a tech who read my report of problems (as in my earlier post). He was responsive and polite. He had no solutions but said he would forward my account of the problems "to engineering".
Quite obviously the R5, wonderful camera that it is, is not *quite* ready for prime time. I'd advise against relying it as your sole camera on assignment until the problems have been addressed with appropriate firmware updates. I haven't had a chance to retest with firmware 1.1.1. But, based on the reponses above, it's probably not bug-free just yet.
Can't wait for that happy moment. It really is a wonderful camera.

It looks like there is a bug in FV mode, where if you set values for the Shutter/Aperture/ISO it does not start metering.
If you have any of the Shutter/Aperture/ISO set to Auto, then the meter is Auto and becomes exposure compenstation. But when you do not have anything set to Auto, it should start metering so you can balance the exposures as if you were in Manual mode. If FV mode would enable metering, then I would be able to use FV mode full time instead of Manual, as it would switch from manual into AV/TV/etc when one of the values is set to Auto.
It would also be useful if there was a setting such that in FV mode you could use the 3 dials similar as to Manual mode to adjust the Shutter/Aperture/ISO instead of using one dial to select Shutter/Aperture/ISO and then using another to adjust the value.
