I think it's too early to say - for us and them. It all depends on how well these cameras sell.
This system is the future. It is superior to the EF and the first glass is better and the new camera has a lot of better futures than the other cameras. They just dont want to say it.

It may be. Not everything that is better is a commercial success, though they will have put a lot of thought and marketing expertise into it, so it probably will be. But FF is always a minority subset of the ILC market, and the real question at this point is what the future of crop is. It doesn't make much sense to me for the RF mount to be used, as it adds unnecessary bulk and the lenses will mostly be more expensive than EF-M. So even if the EOS R represents the mid term future of FF for Canon, it's not the only future.

Everyone on these forums: "I'll wait for the high megapixel version"

umm since when is 30mp not enough for you? Billboard size prints not big enough?
Billboards don't need high resolutions because you view them from so far away



High MP are very useful for archival purposes and if you print large, 20" x 30" and 24" x 36", and view those prints closely. I do both so am looking forwards to a 5DSr MkII or high MP mirrorless.

Sounds like a Sony body might satisfy your cravings. 30MP is the sweet spot.

No splitting my system would not satisfy me and why would I settle for 30MP for archival purposes when I could more easily get 50MP?

Go troll somebody else.

Am I reading this wrong, Its $1 more if you buy the EOS-R with the 24-105 Combo vs buying it separately?
Does the combo come with something extra?
From what has been discussed, Canon most likely does this for a few reasons. One of which is to prevent retailers from getting the reduced price kits early on, separating the lens from it and trying to sell the body and lens separately at full MSRP. It's also a way for Canon to cash in a bit more on early demand before reducing the price a few months down the line.

$500 for the Grip! WTF
Agreed, that is a bit high atm but will most likely come down in price as time goes on. Also, be happy Canon made a full functioning grip for the EOS R. The Nikon Z series optional grip is just a battery pack with no buttons or control wheels.

Give it up. It is nothing but a photoshopped M6.

your fake camera:



EOS M6


55mm filter lens nicely matches shopped in 54mm RF mount. And yes, the shopper has elongated the camera body a bit. That's all. lol.
He did a decent photoshop job, but not fooling anyone here haha. And even if that was real, the grip is far to small to handle the much larger RF lenses.

Gosh, so easily offended..take it easy. I believe there is a 50MP camera in Canon's current range that may satisfy your specialist needs. No need for that to become the norm, as working with such large files is typically a waste of resources and provides no advantage for 90% of photographers. Especially if you shoot a lot. "Archival purposes"? That's exactly what someone who doesn't take photos would say. Are you scared of your camera being "beaten" by others on a spec sheet? 30MP images won't be visible in 30 years. At all. In the future, it will be impossible to view any photo ever shot previously :rolleyes:

I really don't understand how Canon thinks that it is great to have the option to put the ND and CP filters on EF lenses via the adapter yet this isn't possible with the R mount... I highly doubt that a future R mount camera will allow for internal CP and ND filters. Or perhaps there will be? The way I see it, the filter adapters have a limited period of usage - only until the current EF lenses have been rereleased for R...
Meanwhile in Europe:
Eos R + cheapest adaptor : 2 519,99 € = 2,922.47 US$
Eos R + 24-105 F4 : 3 529,99 € = 4,094.17 US$
50mm f1.2 : 2 519,99 € = 2,922.47 US$
28-70 f2 : 3 249 € = 3,768.26 US$
Adaptor with control ring : 229€ = 265.57 US$
Adaptor with CPL: 329€ = 381.56 US$
Adaptor with Vari ND : 449€ = 520.71 US$

We are quite far from the announced prices
I’ve already ordered EOS R body in Russia and here the price is about 2400$ with ef-adapter.
