At the below RP pricepoint....? Oh it will sell a LOAD of cameras. It's an introduction FF so why not 20MP?
With IBIS and a shutter faster than the R (not to mention 4K 60), why would it come in below the RP? Surely not just for losing those 6 MP?
Sure it could. Tell every 6D2 owner that their new camera will come with all of the following upgrades:
...and all it will cost them is (idk) $1800 and 6 less MP.
- A proper on-chip ADC sensor (one can only hope that wrong is righted)
- 20 fps
I bet you'd sell a bunch of cameras. Not all users would take that camera, but many would.
I don't think so. I know several wedding photographers who went with 6D models so they could have the 5D-lite experience --- I always saw the 6D as a 5D substitute (similar form factor and MP) for those who couldn't afford one, but still wanted a full-frame camera. Can't imagine anyone I know tolerating fewer pixels, knowing how these cameras are used, and that they do need to crop and print their images.
Wouldn't be surprised if R6 became the new RP.
(and hopefully an R7)
If it's the new RP, I think it'll cost $1600 to $2000 --- which kind of makes it the un-RP, imo.
