Bloody hell. Living in Australia sucks right now. $4300 for the R6!!!!!!! Our dollar is at 70 US cents. Surely we should be looking at around $3600
Yep! digidirect and georges.. camerapro also have it for 6548, but I'm not sure if they are including the second battery at that price.Maybe GST adds about $700.
Where did you find the $6500 price? Was it authorised dealer, not grey? Teds do it for $6900. digital camera warehouse hasn't even listed the price yet. Thanks!!
UPD: digidirect do it for 6588. I'm already tempted to preorder, it's more reasonable, although the price still bites.
It would end up costing almost exactly the same as buying it locally once you pay GST and import duties unfortunately. And you then also wouldn't have a warranty. In Australia we get 5 years.. only 1 year in the statesSo for anyone is OZ that knows. How much would it cost if I ordered from the US. I hate doing that as I much prefer to support local retailers but the rrp in Australia is little more than Highway robbery. $1900 more here than the US price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Currency exchange and taxes do NOT equate to $1900
$1900 bucks for duties and tax?It would end up costing almost exactly the same as buying it locally once you pay GST and import duties unfortunately. And you then also wouldn't have a warranty. In Australia we get 5 years.. only 1 year in the states
The best price I have found in Australia so far is $6548 with an extra battery and an EF adapter included.$1900 bucks for duties and tax?
I was referring to the R6. Haven't looked at the R5 TBH. so US price of 2500. At 10%GST makes 2750. 5% import duty makes2 2900 give or take. Aussie dollar at 69US cents so say the exchange rate take is to about 3700. It is going for 4400. That is a 700 dollar Aussie tax and is bloody ridiculous.The best price I have found in Australia so far is $6548 with an extra battery and an EF adapter included.
Take the US price of $3899 and add 10% for gst and your at USD $4290 which is already over AU$6100... I believe you then need to add an extra 5% import duty on top of the GST... so pretty much a wash... unless I have my maths wrong?
Oh sorry! Yeah the R6 price here is kind of crazy. Personally think the 5 year warranty we get here is worth a bit extra too. but not the full $700I was referring to the R6.

I was really thinking about 3800 tops. Any more just seem like a rip off.Oh sorry! Yeah the R6 price here is kind of crazy. Personally think the 5 year warranty we get here is worth a bit extra too. but not the full $700
How do you know what the EVF will be like? And isn't the AF tracking on the 1Dx3 (which this is supposed to share) considered very good?
Do we actually know it's cheaper to build them? But anyhow, it's not the only reason. They saw the way the market was going and noted it opened up new opportunities (some technical, some business). Of course launching a whole new line means they can charge more, but then they have to recoup higher development costs too. I don't think it's as simple and cynical as you're making out.
[..]No the AF tracking isn't related in any way to the 1Dx3...only the use cases scenarios are ported over and called an algorthym. The 1Dx3 uses a specific and dedicated AF sensor located below the mirror.[..]
It's the same EVF as the EOS R....regardless of refresh rate...it's still an imature technology.
Well, looks like it has a buffer, and a pretty reasonable one at that. Definitely enough for my typical use. Now just wait to see some real world use reviews and if it works as the specs seem to indicate then I have a feeling we might get one for me and my wife....she is using my 5DS now that her 5DIII has started to act up.Does it need a buffer? If it can handle 8k/30 raw then 20fps @47mp would be roughly the same bandwidth... at least to the CFexpress card.
....As I said before...my 5D3's are still knocking out great images, I can't see a single attractive feature on either the R,R5 or R6.
Put the smugness back in the box...if you took the time to read my original comment, I was stating that the Eos R's AF is great for slow or static objects...but awful for fast moving subjects. That's let to someone else suggesting the new R5 was as good as a 1Dx3 becuase it shares AF tech...ho hum....Riddle me this, batman, how does the 1Dx3 focus in liveview mode with the mirror flipped up? Does it not use an algorithm for that? And if it does, is that algorithm "not related in anyway" to the one in the R5 and R6? And if it isn't, why does Canon keep saying that it is?
The 1DXIII is 6500$ the R6 is 2500$ they use similar sensors and processors and share a lot of common features.Even though that may have been sarcasm, I think you have a point: Canon saves on manufacturing cost and does not hand that saving on to us customers...
I looked at this video
and learned about the R5 apparent overheating issues. So buyer beware!
Also the R6 is not full 4k, its cropped and doesn't have ALL-I 4k, so quality might not be as good, so do we wait for the R6ii or can you put ALL-I video into a firmware update?
