Hello. Im about to buy a new mac that i would be using mainly for edit hd videos, make some 3D titles and transitions and also to make use of Motion, not heavily, but to create some transitions, In addition to this i also use a lot of Photoshop.
I thought an iMac 5k would be the best decision based on my budget. But i have a question, i can still buy more memory ram modules and upgrade myself with the iMac 27" 5k? Or this is no longer available since the iMac Pro arrived?

Thanks so much for your help

Regular IMacs can still be updated for their RAM but the new iMac Pro does not have a slot for this. Buythe least amount of RAM you can for the 5K iMac and upgrade the RAM from a third-party vendor. Way cheaper than buying RAM from Apple.
