So it boils down to the 4.5 fps 6D I don't like and 7 fps since 5 is not much gain, well neither is 7 in a way, but I was never pining for 14.  The camera is future so we can compare notes.  Thanks!

Exactly a week ago, to the hour, I was having lunch outside at Le Caveau in Grand Pre in Nova Scotia, celebrating our golden wedding anniversary, when my wife spotted a bird overhead. I am not spoiling the coincidence by labelling it -  I had never seen one before and identified it later.

Nice picture.... a golden moment to be sure....

It's a lovely area, while you were dining I was filling up a memory card at Cape Blomiden and Scott's Bay.....
The best camera is the one in your hands

Have sent a PM. The file size from the 5DIV is, I would guess, be even higher than for the 5DS R as there are effectively 60 mps because of the split pixels. And, I don't think you would want to do bird photography in an iso range greater than that of the 5DS (>12,800).

Alan it would be only higher if I were doing the DP correction thing, which I'd only do if you were getting sharper pictures than me. ;)  It's a 30 MP camera, joking aside.
