Thanks. Interesting, shows you never really know until you pick up a camera and start shooting with it "how it really is".Longer hands on video posted today:
I agree that the DSLR's days are numbered...but personally, my experience with the M cameras tells me MILC still has a ways to go until it can match the speed, responsiveness and tracking ability of a DSLR. Early reviewers keep saying the R is a quick focuser...we'll see, I've had times where my M6 would fail to lock focus even with plenty of light available (never had that issue with my 5D). But the general direction that photography seems to be moving in is undeniable at this point...
One area of AF where MILC *DOES* hold an advantage though is that the "always live view mode" means no worrying about microadjustment of lenses. That is nice, I will admit. It is frustrating when certain focus points are dead on while others aren't (this seems especially true with my 5DSR). If this new R has at least got the focus accuracy down, even if tracking is slow, that is a major step in the right direction.
