POLL? How many are preordering the EOS R?

#1
Just for fun and out of curiosity... I would like to know how many people plan to buy/upgrade to the new EOS R and what lenses are u considering...

It looks like a winner to me. The price is totally right. I wish it had at least 40MP but it is a steal with the 24-105.

The $3K price for the 28-70 F2.0 is steep but it's an industry first, so it should be worth it.

Cheers

Pat

I have no plans to get an EOS R at least at this stage. I will keep an open mind and see what happens, but I don't see it being on my shopping list. I guess I might well end up with an RF mount camera at some point but I don't see it being soon. Will see what happens with RF lens development over the next couple of years. If the EF line continues to be developed, I doubt I'll be in any hurry.

Never would pre-order a camera (not that impatient), but do plan on trying the new R. Probably can't afford the new lenses, so will get the adapter.

Way too early for me. The camera lacks many of the features that would attract me to mirrorless so no way am I buying this one..... but who knows what the next revision brings? High burst rate and video may be how this one is differentiated from the next realease.....

I'm unlikely to be in the market for a new camera in the next five or so years, other than I might upgrade to some successor of my G7X II for my travel camera.

I don't really have any lens in mind right now to purchase. I might rent a TS lens to play with some week. That could inspire me to put one on my wish list, or get the idea out of my system.

I'm considering buying this camera. But I'll not preorder it. I'm not sure the RF lenses would make me happier than the lenses I now own, especially given their premium prices. So, for me, the camera will need to sell itself. The fact that it is a mirrorless camera is only an afterthought. I would consider buying the EOS R had it been a 6D III with most of the same technology.

Most of my work is wildlife and sports and I need tracking/burst rate for much of that so no.
I will certainly keep a close eye on it though because I may be willing to compromise a bit of size over my MFT gear especially if they can bring out some super-dinky short-to-wide lenses.

The WYSIWYG EVF, silent shutter and eye focus are tempting but not enough over the 5D4. Will wait for next Canon MLC, if it can replace my 5DsR for megapixels will do. Not buying any more EF lenses, only RF and will move over in the next 2 or 3 years for sure.

Nope, I finally upgraded to a full frame 5DIV from the 7DII. I'm extremely happy with it and won't have money to spend for a long time. Took me about 8 years to accumulate my stable of L glass - 16-35 f4, 24-105 f4, 70-200 f2.8 II and 100-400 II. No hurry to change. I like the size of the 5D and 7D series.

Basically, EOS R can take comparable or a little better still pictures than 5D4. Has much better video spec than 5D4. Is smaller, lighter and has silent shutter. Doesn't need lens calibration. Comes with some interesting and innovative lenses. And has a few interesting perks such as CPL/ND adapter for EF and also EF-S lenses.
Do I want it? Yes, it is tempting. Do I need it? No. Because 5D4/5DSR are still very capable cameras.
Does it really matter (to the photographers) how many will upgrade?

Still capable but already 2 years old. Technology is moving faster than that. In my opinion, it's not an upgrade/downgrade. It's a different camera all together. That is what makes it interesting to me. Look at some of the 2500 ISO samples on DPR. The 5D4 can't do that...

Fortunately for you, there is an adaptor for ALL your lenses and with full compatibility. The only investment is the $2299 for the body. IMO, a great price for new technology and things that the 5D will never be able to do like the swivel screen or EVF and not to mention a new processor and sensor.
