    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...

    Here are the full Canon EOS R specifications

    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

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

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

    EF/R Adapter doesn't look as thick as the EF/EFM ... wonder if the flange distance is in the 20s....

    News Flash: Good news for some, bad news for others

    Now, let's see about the body size... let's not sacrifice the excellent Canon ergonomics... a "thinner" 6DII would be perfect, a "slightly larger" M5/M50 is too small with big glass...

    News Flash: Good news for some, bad news for others

    Almost sounds like you could potentially MOUNT an EF lens on an RF body, but it wouldn't focus...

    News Flash: Good news for some, bad news for others

    If this is true, then this also opens up the market for B+W, Hoya and other specialty filter makers to make these drop ins. I know I'd love to save money on getting filters across different sizes.

    News Flash: Good news for some, bad news for others

    Sorta makes more sense, but the thought of using an adapter never gave me a conniption.
