I've watched some reviews now and they all say the eye-controlled AF is a game changer for sports. Photographers will no longer have to aim their AF points manually every single time they want to isolate a subject through a dense crowd of football players. They just look at it and activate tracking. It doesn't get any more intuitive than that.I honestly think that the actual day-to-day use of the EOS-R3 is going to absolutely blow everyone's expectations out of the water. A camera is far, far more than just specs. This camera may not get much hype off of specs alone in the general community, but I fully anticipate that actually using the camera is going to be an absolute breeze, and that has me very excited.
The price alone makes me feel like Canon must be absolutely exceeding confident in the performance of this camera. There's far more to a camera than specs on a sheet of paper, and I anticipate that Canon built this camera to be a reliable, durable, high-speed powerhouse.
This is the kind of upgrade that you can't quantify on a spec sheet. It has huge benefits for photojournalism, events, or any situation where you can't control the action.
