Traveling the world one step at a time.

This is a link to Jeff Cable's YouTube Zoom call about his upcoming trip to shoot the Olympics as the team photographer for the USA Olympics Team who shoots water polo. He works closely with Canon and this was released before he was under an NDA so he was able to talk about the R3 and when he hopes to get it, etc. Worth a look from someone who knows!I think that many of us were hoping, like you, for mid $5k pricing for the R3, noting that in Canon's own words, this body will fall in between the R5 and 1Dx iii. We can still hope, can we not? However, at $6 grand, this would kind of signal a 1Dx mirrorless replacement to me. If there is a summer Olympics, will be interesting to see just what kind of presence the R3 will actually have. No idea how many Canon ambassadors would be at any given Olympics. I still don't see the average pro sports photog jumping to mirrorless until the R3/R1 bodies have a proven performance track record.
