    It looks like firmware v1.2.0 for the Canon EOS R will be released on April 18, 2019

    I was really hoping that the swipe/select of AF points would move with the orientation of the camera. The selection of the screen quadrant (e.g relative left, absolute right) don't rotate with the camera's firmware right now :(

    APS-C Canon EOS R body likely [CR2]

    I'd say a good bit but not considerable. Dual Digic 8's can add a lot of horsepower - even a Digic 8 and a Digic 7 could add a lot. I'd say the elephant in the room is the BSI processor. I don't know if BSI technology and dual-pixel autofocus are mutually exclusive - are they?

    SHOTEN releases a complete series of Canon RF Lens mount adaptors

    Looks like purely mechanical adapters... but why would anyone buy an EF/RF adapter from them? o_O

    Teardown: Lensrentals.com checks out what’s inside the Canon EOS R

    There will be a new weather-sealed opening in the "professional" version - this will allow you to: a) attach different sized heat sinks to dissipate the heat generated by multiple DIGICs or higher powered DIGICs *OR* b) allow you to attach a "Nitro cooler" - a small(ish) compressed cylinder...

    Teardown: Lensrentals.com checks out what’s inside the Canon EOS R

    With "a lot of air inside" I wonder if that bodes well for a dual-DIGIC setup for the "professional" model in terms of heat dissipation...

    Is the Canon EOS 5DS series to be replaced by a mirrorless camera? [CR1]

    "R-squared" has more of a ring to it ;)

    Is there an EOS R series camera with an APS-C sensor coming? [CR1]

    I wouldn't mind a larger "M" body - I have smaller sized hands, and it still feels a little too small for me.

    Is there an EOS R series camera with an APS-C sensor coming? [CR1]

    Canon's bread-and-butter is the lenses. If you look at it, the M-family can take EF/EF-S lenses via the adapter; the R-family can take EF/EF-S lenses via an adapter also. Native "M" lenses are the budget lenses; EF-S lenses are a step up; EF and RF lenses are the premium line.

    Here are the full Canon EOS R specifications

    Let's really go at it and discuss Canon's feature (or lack thereof) of super-luminal lens processing - you get a picture on the SD card BEFORE you mount the lens, aim the camera and hit the shutter button... ;) ... and perfectly focused... :D

    Here are the full Canon EOS R specifications

    Although in a case like this, then all you'd need is a reverse EF/RF adapter...

    Optically, I think it *IS* possible. Think of corrective lenses for someone that is nearsighted - their focus is ahead of the retina, so lenses are used to "pull" the focus back to where it should be. Sort of like a neutral speedbooster....

    Here are the first images and specifications of the Canon EOS R and the new RF mount lenses

    Sort of like the razor mentality - "Give away the handle for below cost because you're making money on the blades."

    Here are the first images and specifications of the Canon EOS R and the new RF mount lenses

    My guess is that is the "diopter adjustment" - it's currently right underneath the EVF on the M-series (which is a major pain) - this moves it to a much more accessible position

    I have an M5, it's really easy to move the focus point. It's even nicer on the M50...
