The R1 will likely be substantially more expensive, and while I suspect it will have QPAF or some other tech equivalent to cross-type AF points and be blazing fast, I don't think the specs will be hugely different from the Z9. So, waiting for the R1 does not really make sense.Yep same with me. The R3 just made a lot less sense once Nikon announced the Z9. If Canon knocked the price of the R3 down by $1000, then I think it becomes much more palatable. At this point, I'm thinking the R5 Mark II (another 1-2 year wait at least) or the R1..
For many years, brand choice was really about lens selection. In some ways, that hasn't changed. I really like my compact 70-200/2.8 and my 28-70/2, and those aren't available for Nikon or Sony, so the R3 makes a lot of sense, to me.
Just a general comment, I don't have a horse in the video race as I don't use my ILCs for that, except a few seconds of footage I once shot on my 1D X by accident while customizing the buttons.
