See that is where what you think and the facts diversify. Canon still make and sell millions of dslr’s, they didn’t quit anything, they followed the market.A person can play around with semantics; "pushed" or "responded," it really does not matter. Without Sony doing what it did with mirrorless and the resulting market response, I do not think Canon is all in with mirrorless so rapidly. Canon did not react by just developing a line of FF MILC cameras, it basically quit the DSLR business altogether. Canon saw the writing that Sony painted on the wall and... Well, I am just glad Canon did what they did to get in the game. As a bird and wildlife photographer, I do hope Canon brings forth a camera that is high mp and fast fps with all the great AF, built-in grip, etc. in the very near future. The R5 is great, but the BSI, stacked sensor promises things that the R5 can't produce for those of us who make a living shooting some of the fastest and most elusive subjects on the planet; doing so in the awesome low light of early mornings and late evenings. The R3 may be, in Canon's mind, for the sports shooters, so be it, next bring on the pro R body for us wildlife photographers.
Anybody expecting some kind of game changing upgrade in IQ because of BSI/stacked sensors again, isn’t looking at facts. The Sony A7RII, the first FF BSI sensor, had lower DR than the A7R. And stacking really only seems to help ES readout times.
The R5 already bests the A7RIV, A9 and A1 for DR.
