So, uh, how's the DR and ISO performance? None of the posted specs besides resolution impact still image quality. Are photographers just forgotten when announcing cameras these days?
Nothing about the R6 was announced. It is 100% leaks.

And regardless of that, Canon doesn't advertise DR or read noise values. The most we got in this regard was a leak about the DR on the 6D 2 way back when, as far as I know.

DR and low light performance will be good, as they have been in all recent releases. There's now basically no more room for improvement, so what do you expect? I bet this is the same sensor as found in the 1DX III.

Has Canon ever reported dynamic range figures for stills cameras? I've always had to wait for reviews and for results to post on photonstophotos.net for that.

Only if you are not into video. For anyone doing photo AND/OR video, this is certainly a beast of a allrounder camera at a very nice price :)
That's not exactly true for all of us. I like the "megapickles" (thank you @slclick ) of the R better for stills. I probably will for video also. Everyone has different needs, but my choice would be the R over the R6 for stills/video. I am compositionally impaired when taking some photos, so I enjoy the extra cropping ability of the larger files to maintain image quality in larger prints. ;) IBIS would be nice, but I have lived just fine without it. I can always get c-log with an ATMOS recorder for the R, I think. I might be wrong. Just now getting back into video.

I'm still really hoping for $1999 body-only.
Geez, it's 2020.....you're not going to get a "real" camera for that cheap.

I'm guessing if you want an entry level camera, go for the R or RP...those I believe will be priced in the range you want if not now...soon.

But a brand new release that is decently on the ProSumer level...forget it.

Photography has never been a cheap hobby, and likely never will be.


Just my $0.02,
