First post here. Be gentle :)

I have the Speedlite 600EX II-RT
Is it going to work as expected with EOS R out of the box? Have a 5D mk IV and use to how it behaves. Is there any difference using this Speedlite on a EOS R?
Going to get a EOS R this black friday.

I used the original 600ex three days last week as a master for two more, sometimes just by itself. Worked great.

I didn't notice any significant difference from 5D4. Exposures accurate using ETTL. All my shots were bounce-flash.

Fire away!

Wow, what a response. Thank you all.
Next step I'm going to get some sort of "macro flash" as well attached to my 100mm. But first things first :)

The MT24-EX does strange things on my RP, it likes to over expose by more than 2 stops in E-TTL mode most of the time. It doesn't do that on the SL1 in liveview, M1, M50 and M6II. The picture I took on the R+MT24 were on the border of maxing out the flash, so I can't say if suffers from the same issue. All with the MP-E65mm.
That's the only flash issue I came across on the R and RP so far.
