canon already published a comparison video as well so you can see with your own eyes. I don't think CR posted the video, so here's where I posted it back on August 28th.Phoblographer... Is he a Canon ambassador/representative? Most likely yes. Why should anyone believe anything he has to say???
Canon snuck in a little gem with all the announcements. A significant auto focus firmware update will be coming for the EOS RP and the EOS R in the coming weeks. Improvements for both the eye AF and also the AF tracking will be handled in this firmware update. If what is shown on the video is...
it's vastly improved. Like night and day.
the only question will be - who on the net will re-do their reviews on the EOS R and the EOS RP. when you consider the EOS R and the initial firmware to version 1.2, it's vastly different. Enough reviews should be revised. (looking at you, dpreview)
(edit sorry replied i guess to the wrong person)
