That's great for those that have EF lenses, and it gives support to the usefulness of the idea.And I'm saying all of that is already available. Just not made by Canon. You can already adapt EF lenses to existing dedicated astro cameras with color wheels. You just can't buy the adapter, the camera, nor the color wheel from Canon.
I didn't know that most people take stills and video in portrait mode - it's an illuminating thing to think about.
If the R5s isn't coming until 2021, and you don't want the R1 (assuming it comes this year) then I'd highly recommend you get the R5. It's a great camera. While the resolution of the R5s might be 2x that of the R5, I strongly doubt the visible IQ will be 2x that of the R5 and you'll have to deal with even bigger file sizes which may (or may not) be a significant downside.Unfortunately according to this version of the rumor that may not make it in 2021, which might force me to get the R5. I'm not sure I want to wait another year to get into mirrorless (particularly at higher resolution).

Hi, sorry how do you know there won't be high MP this year? where is the rumor? thank youUnfortunately according to this version of the rumor that may not make it in 2021, which might force me to get the R5. I'm not sure I want to wait another year to get into mirrorless (particularly at higher resolution).

And why on earth would Canon make the 1 series jump from 20mp to 85mp in single generation? This all makes no sense whatsoever
...If they would go any lower than 80MP, then once divided by 4, you would end up <20MP which would also not go over well (as you would have those saying, "I used to be able to shoot 20, why is it less than that").
85 MP with a quad Bayer array makes a lot of sense for the R1 "flagship". You could have the ultra-high resolution when you need it, or the highest sensitivity/lowest noise/highest dynamic range when you need that, single shot HDR, or single shot exposure bracketing (ISO bracketing).With binning/interpolation you could read as ~21MP image (reading 4 pixels as 1)... getting you back to 'just over' the ~20MP from the previous generation. However you get the bonus of doing full readout at 85MP.
I had the same thought after seeing the 85mp rumor. Great idea unless that vertical grip is built in. That would change the rules on the landscape side.I know the rumor mill has been murky for 2021, but these rumors really have me thinking that the "R5s" and the "R1" are the same camera. I know it could very well not be the case, but that would be an incredible way to show up the A1.
I'm also sold on the idea Canon would allow for either full sensor 85mp and binned 21mp, just like in video. That makes a lot of sense in a 1 series camera.
What I also think you don't get is that it's not about the difference between 17MP and 20. It's about the difference between 17MP and 24, or 28, or 32, or whatever alternatives are out there *today*, and not just from Canon. The 7D Mark II is a 2014 camera. If Canon comes out with an "R7" RF APS-C body (and that's still a big "if"), and it only has 20MP, I'll be quite frankly disappointed. Do I *need* higher resolution? Maybe, maybe not. But again, that's my choice. The state of the art in 2021 should be more than 20MP. If the (hypothetical) Canon R7 is otherwise identical to the R6 but with a 28MP APS-C sensor (which is less than the 90D), I'll preorder it on day one.No, I *don't* get it, to be honest. The difference between 20MP and 17 shouldn't be that big a deal.
But I know that's what you're thinking.
