I will have a conversation with the EOS R on Black Friday.
I would do the same but Kenya or Black Friday? hmmm ;) gimme my giraffes and cheetahs!! I just bought the control ring adapter too.. hoping it'll work well with the sigma 150-600. Not the fastest focusing lens but super for what I got it for.. $679 4 yrs ago brand new - Black Friday I think.

No mention of M5 / M50 versions? After thinking about a 2nd M50 body to come back to two body photography I do not like to buy one and see 5 minutes later a full sensor read out 4k mode enabled M5(0) entering the market.

C300 MkIII - whatever happened to the announcement for the C300 Mk III? I thought we were more or less guaranteed to have this announced this year?

Why do they announce flagships so close to the Olympics? What if something goes wrong and they won't have a moment to fix that? Also would't it be better for business to promote next Olympics flagship way ahead of the even to squeeze more cash on that fact?
I really don't get this.
If you have what amounts to an Iridium-level CPS subscription, like Canon's big clients do, you almost certainly don't need to wait for public announcements. You're briefed well ahead of time what to expect and when. Of course that privilege comes with a bunch of NDAs drafted by extremely expensive lawyers, and you really don't want to get on Canon's bad side by violating those NDAs.

Oh .. but what if test models are being used by 2 dozen experienced pros right now as you post your question?

Which is probably the real world preparation.

No, there's the Rhodium level in between.
Logically, rhodium should be above iridium; it fluctuates a lot in price because of the way the market and production work for those exotic PGMs, but has been known to break $4K/troy ounce.

1/2 an hour to set the settings/buttons/menus of your new 1DX Mark III to match your existing 1DX Mark II and you're good to go. I'll be very surprised if the new models are different enough to give Olympic level operators any problems. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

If you "don't get it" then why even suggest what they are doing wrong? They clearly know what they are doing, when to release their flagship products as they have been doing the pre olympics launches in the past. I'm sure they go over their numbers after the fact. Heck there is a reason they are the biggest in the market, they must be doing something right no?

The products they release are being tested now, they have never had a disaster pre olympics so why trounce on them for no reason?

I've used that combination, but only once. (Simply because I don't have much time for recreational photography due to the demands of my work photography. I must say I was impressed with the sharpness on the R -- probably as a result of not needing AFMA. I didn't notice any slower or faster focusing than on a DSLR. Generally, I think the R tends to hunt more when shooting BIF than a DSLR. But that may be because I need to get more used to the R for that purpose. It seems like when it misses focus, it really, really misses focus and it's hard to find the subject again. I haven't tried it with the new firmware though, so don't know if that will help.

Anybody else getting Deja vu comparing the time the 5Dsr was launched and then the long wait for the 5D4 release?

I can't help feeling this will be no different. Eos Rs in Feb, Eos R5 in September.

Hmm, true if you go by price. I just went by atomic number.
In that case it should be …. Osmium, Iridium, Platinum, Gold... Then on to considerably less glamorous metals like mercury, lead and bismuth. Uranium and plutonium being top dogs.

Sounds like a really bad year for mirrorless... no "normal" megapixel camera with pro features incoming.... only some needs 50+ MP! The best for the most is between 24-40MP.

Wake me up for a 40-45MP 5D- mirrorless body. With IBIS, with HIGH-MP EVF, s controll stick and double card slot.
