I doubt they'd go down to 30MP just to get a 30 FPS speed. That'd hurt sales more than help them.I have a feeling it might be 30-ish MP, the R5 does 45MPx20fps, assuming the Digic is the bottleneck, 30fps would mean 30MP.
Looks like from the development announcement at least the first part of your prediction is correct! I fear my hopes will not be fulfilled.Perhaps, but in the current market, I wouldn't be surprised if the R3 is the 1D equivalent and the R1 is the 1Ds equivalent.
Where will you attach an Arca-Swiss quick connect plate on the R3?
Please - someone tell me how to quickly snap this onto a tripod or monopod?
If there truly is no quick way (other than a twist on standard thread) then I guess you just live with it.
You misunderstood then.With both a crop and only at 10-bit as I understand it.
That means drastically more back body area. Will they have a larger back LCD with it? If so then great! If not, then what a waste (IMHO).
