Jeah, thats a reason I heard quite a lot, but its hard to belive that its actualy so much of a problem. Its not like the 5D is a sensitive camera to rain. Also its just a dial, its not rocket science to make it waterproof ^^
Honestly it has never bothered me, but this are just personal preferences. And I don´t change so much the mode also....usually I keep it on manual and stays like that all the time. But if I need to change, I do it very quickly so no problem to me. But I understand your point.
To be fair: adapting canon lenses to Sony works realy realy great. Some lenses perform even better. For example I can use my 100-400 IS II with an 2x extender without any problems on the Sony a7r iv, while its only working (badly) on the canons when I switch to liveview (since the F-Stop is to high for the AF to work with the mirror down.)
I second that! For stills adapting canon lenses to Sony is very good.You lose some AF speed but not noticeable, at least not much and also depends what adapter you use. For video....is another matter! For video is a no good! You just loose AF or simply just lag or fail too much. No good. In my experience either you use MF or you will have problems. Again it may depend on the adapters and ofc course the lenses you use.But for example the 500mm F4 is unusable for video unless in manual mode. In stills works great with the sigma mc-11.
I think it will be just as rigid as the Canon 5D series and these cameras are incredible solid. The 1D is a bit more solid, but its certainly not any gamechaning difference. And I used both for years side by side.
Certainly the flippy screen will make R5 a bit less sturdy - but given these expected specs and the naming - I think Canon aims clearly to produce a worth 5D replacement, and I highly doubt they will cheap out on sturdiness in that price level.
Why shouldnt it have a true zero blackout? The 1DX III offers it. Also the EOS R got a very decent viewfinder mode, where the image hardly even lags when taking an image.
I dont see the R5 being anywhere "semi"-professional. How do you come to this naming? Is there anything canon offers that is more professional? The 1D may be named, but this is a VERY specific tool and certainly not a camera for the everyday photographers work. (Of course it can be used for anything, but the big footprint, loud shutter and the comparable low resolution makes it a tool for the stadiums and not the best tool for most "Normal" work beside that. Thats where the 5D and 5Ds shines - and now the R5).
You see, I am totaly hyped for this camera :-D After about 6 years of very big disapointments from Canon (Especialy the 5D IV with the unusable video mode) I am finaly hoping for a truely perfect camer :-D
I would pay 7000€ if that would be the price, since I could replace my a7R IV, 5D IV, S1H and 1DX all with just two R5 bodies But of course I would prefer a lower price.
I guess it will be at 4000€. Canon appeared to go for higher quality and higher prices in the latest cameras and lenses. So I expect the R5 (as a mirrorless 5D) will exceed the starting price of the 5D series.
The R5 is a high end body! That´s a fact! With high end specs that won´t make it a cheaper body! Count on that! Canon will take advantage of the wow factor and will charge a bit more for that. As for the price, I expect no less that 4000$ witch will price it in about 4900€. It´s a bit expensive and I DO HOPE the price will be less expensive...
