Now we see through a glass, darkly...

And yet, I've seen many similar images taken with a 5D Mark III, a 5D Mark II, or a 5D.You miss the point and have not read through the thread. This is what we were responding to... an absolutist statement by somebody else saying that the R is, essentially, not a good camera. "Ten years ago we all would have killed for a camera like the R. But, today it's lackluster enough that it's seen as an unacceptable hindrance to taking good photos. " ----> KitLensJockey
So while it might be a hindrance to YOU and what YOU do, it is not a camera incapable of good photos, which is what the blanket statement is saying. NO camera is one size fits all. The R is anything but lackluster. The OP did not specify a genre. He included ALL genres, including photos inside churches, etc. He is wrong, and has likely never touched an R at all. Neither have you, according to your own words. BTW: The R is on par (actually better) than your 5D Mark IV, 5DSr, and 7D Mark II for what I do, in my opinion. It absolutely shreds my former 5D Mark III.
Aussieshooter said, "Fact is there is no new ILC on the market that is a hindrance to taking good photos." He's right, and was actually speaking against said absolutist statements.
