They're using Bluetooth 4.2 on the R6 instead of 5.0 like on the R5? WTH? That's not saving them any money, it's just a way of making people think twice before choosing the R6 over the R5.
The 20 mp sensor is a huge step backward and not necessary since the R6 will still be an expensive camera.
Am I the only one who thinks that this one replaces the 6D AND 7D?

20MP is not "fine". Its low resolution and unless applied to specific 1DXII or III its now outdated. Canon must have a ton of low resolution 20MP sensors left and will sell them to rubes.20mp is tons, exactly how big are you planning on printing your image that it wont be ok?
I've a 190x96cm or so photo printed off the inspire 2 x5s camera, and that's a 20mp sensor as well but micro 4/3's.
Looks absolutely perfect in print, and now imagine how much sharper it would be with a FF sensor like will be in the R6
Honestly, more MP aren't needed unless you're doing billboards or printing 6ft photos for galleries, by which time you'll probably be talking about shooting on medium format anyway.
R6 looks great, my only gripe, and to be fair, its a very small gripe, is the mode dial on top of the camera, that could surely be done like on the R and the space used for some other dial?
If theres one thing the R did right IMO, it was the mode selection buttons to save space on the top.
Tho they made a serious blunder with the touch bar and the lack of a scroll wheel on the back.
it may - but then again the R6 will completely roast the 7D in terms of reach AF - with bird eyeAF and the ability to AF below F/11.6D is FF (R6 replaces it)
7D is crop sensor; no way does R6 replace it. It just won't have the extended reach desired for WL photography. The R5 is more of a replacement because it will have far greater crop-ability.

So there is a customizable top thumb dial where the mode dial is on the R5? That's a nice addition. EC / ISO? The R5 mode dial looks like it might be configurable too and the top down screen is nice.
That's good for you. I take it you sell prints online and have a magic way to upres them to be able to sell them? Because I don't. I'm not talking about personal prints. I don't care about 20 more mp for a picture on my wall. Print services do.Me: Looking at a 36"x24" on my wall taken with the original 5D and thinking things will somehow be just fine.
Will it shoot 1/8000s!?! I hope so... but the missing of the top display is a joke hm?!? They could easily have two (or four) different full frame sections!! But still with great body ergonomics etc... especially when you have a huuuge gap between the megapixels of two cameras if one company... (20 vs. ~45)....
I don’t understand those moves by Canon....
