No, it's 8FPS with one-shot AF. If you use AI-servo it's 5fps at most in release priority (with a laundry list of options that will slow that down) and a paltry 3fps in tracking priority mode. This is a significant difference to a 5D Mark IV. To me that kind of difference in continuous shooting speed really thins out the number of people this camera will be good for. There's lots of people who use the 5D4 for sports and wildlife (myself included) because it actually walks a nice line between speed and file resolution. With those kinds of slow continuous speeds on the EOS R, there's no way I can use it to replace a 5D4. Not sure I'd even carry it as a backup!So I'll say it. DPRAW + 8 fps seals it. EOS R is (kinda) a mirrorless 5D4.
If this is $2000, I'd be completely stunned.
