The improvements that I see and also seems (I could be mistaken and please don't hold me to this) that this case now has a separate Power and HDD led activity lights where the earliers ones didn't.

Here it is expected on 16th Dec. We get stuff a little later than other bigger countries with main markets.
Germany already has it in shops and sells.

I don't feel the need to get R5, sure I would like the more sensible filter removal but that's about it.

They might not be as the right panel uses a latching system.

It is actually out now. So everyone knows. Newegg has them available.
I have a couple questions if anyone can answer please answer as I am considering this case but first I'd like to know a couple things. Here goes
1) Is this case a better air cooler than my current Silverstone Raven 02 case?
2) If the case is better in air cooling what is the optimal way to cool the R5 (Since it barely came out I'm sure the R4 very similar so anyone that has an r4 can help out with this? )
3) How is the actual building of the case? Is it easy? Where were there kinks?

Thanks everyone for answering. Again, I'm thinking of getting the R5 case but the current R4 owners can help with these questions.

I would buy this but I don't like the new moduvents, I prefer the old r4 style ones. Maybe they will make a new arc midi for me.

I ordered the Fractal Design Define R5 FD-CA-DEF-R5-BK-W Black w/window today from NewEgg.
This will be my second Fractal Design case, as I already have a Node 804 and have been very happy with it.
This will replace an Antec Three Hundred case on my main rig that is just plain noisy.
Will take some pictures during the swap and hopefully post a review soon.

Im sure you will love it. Its very quite with excellent air cooling. And if you don't open up the top two fan slots and run your fans on low or medium its completely silent.
