I fear that the R5 will be getting all the good updates/upgrades while the R6 will get close to nothing.

Why no mention of 480p at 2,372 fps? It's clear they are just trying to protect the Phantom T1340. If they don't add this capability I'm going to take them to the UK small claims court.

While I'm sure the R5 will be the priority, I think we can expect good firmware updates for the R6, where warranted. Canon did right by R owners, so I expect they will do the same by R6 owners.

Clog 3 and FHD 120p, that fits many wishlists well.
I guess my personal wishlist will be unfulfilled, I bought my R5 in China, and cannot change image.canon to US/UK server and can only get my photos into Baidu not even the app. No option to choose and no way i can get a Baidu account even.
