Was there ever solid confirmation that the R6 was a 20mp body? Or, did someone claim it was and everyone ran with that?

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.
Even if they did, would people take it to heart? Any time Sony/Nikon announces new advancements in DR I've always taken it with a grain of salt because we have no idea whether their value is comparing apples to apples when talking about values reported by any other authority/company. I agree - it's all hearsay until there are some comparable tests out there.

Yes, it was already leaked in February and mentioned multiple times later on, so it is safe to assume that it is a 20MP camera.

It seems perfectly logical as well, considering all other mirrorless cameras (Fuji, Nikon, Panasonic, Sony) in this category will continue to stay around 24MP (Fuji has 26MP but it is a crop X-trans sensor, so it actually has less resolution), they also have more expensive models with more megapixels.
And for all practical purposes, it does not matter if it is 20 or 24 - but it does matter how good the ISO is or how good the video is, these are huge upgrades over the EOS R (which will cost almost half as much as the R6, so it remains an option for those who want 30MP with a lower price over anything else).

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?
No. It is more that most serious photographers realise that DR while important is going to be more than acceptable on any FF camera nowadays. 1/2 a stop here or there is not going to make or break your photo

My suspicion is that if Canon is coming out with f11 versions of 600mm and 800mm lenses, they must be pretty confident in the ISO and DR for both the R5 and R6. And obviously, to me, they are keeping a few nuggets under wraps til July 9 so they will actually still have some headliners For the actual reveal.

getting better by the day. joystick and all. I really think this will be my Xmas pressie to compliment the 7d2 as a low light wildlife body and a dedicated Aurora body. Good times
