Jared's review of the R3 was particularly informative this time around, and, importantly, he tested with the new RF 400mm and 600mm super telephotos. Since I am really interested in seeing the real-world AF acquisition and speed on the R3 with these new lenses Dual Power AF lenses, I will be tuning in to his more detailed review when it's available. It will be really interesting to see if the R3 offers better BIF performance.Yes, Gordon's reviews are always very thorough and well articulated. But actually I discover more from Jared Polin and from Chris & Jordan, who come closer to providing a pseudo-hands on experience. I always make a point of watching all 3 reviews.
I also try to find reviews by appropriate specialists e.g. BIF and sports photographers, because they can reveal particular advantages/disadvantages, and approaches to technique that are relevant to particular cameras.
I'm also really looking forward to hearing about the dynamic range and AF performance in busy/dark environments for wildlife, and for that I'll probably have to tune into a different channel.
