I think this whole tech thing with photography has gone too far now, it was once about how to take a great image but now it is about the next best thing with tech, Canon certainly know how to grab those who have all the gear and no idea lol.
Not All of us. I am still getting great images with my 7d2, but I am about to compliment that with an R6(unfortunately the nearly 7k price tag for the R5 in Aus is just too much to justify), which will be my first new body for nearly 4 years and it while will be a worthy upgrade it wont make up for any lack of bushcraft when it comes to chasing wildlife

Hi guys, I'm new here.
looking forward to R1. Hope it has 6K120fps 24Mpx sensor for movies and great dynamic range for photos and video.;)

FILM? I look back in great fondness, ... but my kids just asked me "What's that?" :ROFLMAO:

Well, with Medium Format, you do have some interesting things...I like shooting on different formats....rather than cropping.

I like the square 6x6 format shots I shoot with my Hasselband V System 501 CM camera.

Shooting FOR that composition makes a difference in how I shoot., plus its kinda fun the attention I get, I'll admit...when I have that or my Yashica Mat-124G TLR camera and people are curious as to what it is, etc...

I also have a Shen Hao dedicated 6x17 medium format view camera. It shoots wonderful panoramic.

I don't tend to shoot 35mm film as that well, I can regularly do that format with my digital. But with MF film, it is fun to shoot for natively different formats that you can get currently with digital.

And sure I know how to stitch digital for panoramas...but hard to do things on digital like shooting panoramic of water with a ND filter on, or capturing that wide a shot of birds flying, other things in motion in one shutter click.

Plus...well....the main reason is, it is FUN.

And isn't that last reason the most important one?
