Except the Panasonic isn't even APS-C. It's a micro 4/3If you want an affordable, capable APS-C video camera, I suggest the GH5, but you will need someone behind the camera. If you want a great vlogging camera, the EOS R is probably the best right now... if the RP follows suit, it will sell boat loads!
The plain EF are not too expensive. Most of the L series, of course, are. Hmmmm... the EF 50mm f/1.8 II is on closeout at Adorama right this second. $129Even though we now have a x0D-priced FF body, full-frame lenses are expensive enough to make an FF system out of the reach of many.
No need to bring any sort of rational thought into all this.And on the hells of that, would you really rather spend $1600 for a micro 4/3 sensor with a relatively poor lens family vs. $1300 for a full frame sensor that will perform much better in low light and upper ISOs with a vastly superior lens family and Canon color science? Yeah that's a really easy choice for me when it comes to regular 24fps needs, especially with things like VLogging
any ideas why x-sync? (flash sync?) seems to be lower on the new R cameras? found 1/250th on the 80D often wasn't quick enough for faster moving objects.
IQ is going to be fascinating, but really it should be no more than marginally different from the 6Dii - ie very good but not perfect (eg at low ISO).What I want to learn about it: image quality
If that RF100-400 is reseanably priced, I may buy the combination.
The 3fps of the R is with focus priority where the shutter will not fire without focus confirmation. I'd like to know how accurate that is. I could live with 3 FPS if focus is accurate.I'm very impressed with Canon's aggressive pricing on the RP. But the EOS R lineup needs some serious work put in towards increasing the tracking-priority fps. The RP is shown as having 4fps with tracking-priority, and the R has 3fps (strange that the higher-end model would have less). I don't expect Canon to match Sony's continuous tracking AF fps right out of the gate, but I'd like to have a servo AF fps on a mirrorless camera that can match the burst mode on my 6D II.
Maybe the lackluster tracking fps is related to the DPAF architecture of Canon's sensors, but I'm hoping it's just a software issue that can be fixed via firmware with a significant DIGIC processor optimization.
plus it still is not necessarily affordable? still around 2k no?

According to Adorama, it has 30fps. I am buying this. To me, this is their best move ever since I have known Canon.Same here, I will have to hear it from Canon to believe it.
I stopped shooting 24fps 3 years ago and entirely switched to 30fps. I simply decided to stop convincing myself, that 24fps is what makes my video cinematic, whatever they have in mind using that word. Without 30fps, I will have to pass. With it, the weight and the 422 HDMI, the cost is less enough to ignore. I would take, put and hang it everywhere and anywhere. I would finally jump into this mirrorless buzzword and buzzworld of theirs.
