@ShermN8r When I needed a small system for landscape photos (in addition to my 5DsR 100-400 II combo for birding and walking) I took a 200D (SL2) with a 10-18 zoom lens. It was worth more than its weight in gold IQ and weightwise :)

Of course, with up to 8 frames per second on the EOS R and the ability to write to super-fast UHS-II cards, it is a far more capable camera for fast-action work than the 5DSR.
This is a wrong argument:

1. EVF cannot handle the speed of fast action. Just ask BIF shooters.
2. You have to use it in ONE-SHOT mode to achieve 8fps. It is 5fps for AI-SERVO with release priority and 3fps for AI-SERVO focus priority.

"8 frames per second" in One-Shot???

This is one of the most misleading specifications ever, pretty much false advertising.
Try it! Maybe it's possible. Woodpeckers can peck at up to 20 taps per second! :giggle:
But...Competitive shooters using a finely tuned semi-auto rifle are only getting off about 3 shots per second. Can a competitive photographer do better with a shutter button? :unsure:
