paying off a Canon 70200 in instalments may find you in an extreme financial hardship situation for the next 30 years at least provided you are still on a good income by then.
Hm, what kind of features do you mean?
I personaly have not much doubt in both, video and photo features.
40mp sensor (given buy the fact it has 8k on full sensor width), 20fps is confirmed als well
But hey, what about just launch this camera now, take your loss and come up with an updated R7 in december or whatever..
I am wondering whether Canon marketing guys are happy enough to have people worried about a steep R5 price tag while the specs seem to good to be believed. That way any price under 4K will seem like a bargain, at least to some people, and a few asterisks on the specs may be forgiven. On the other hand, Covid may have screwed things up so much there is no marketing gameplan at this point.
I'm still holding firm on my guess that it will be between $2999 and $3499. They have to jumpstart their market share to get people to buy their bodies so that they will also buy even more stunning lenses, which is where they'll make a lot more money than in their bodies. And Sony won't be standing still at all - Canon is not trying to pass a company that's standing still, they're trying to pass a company that is stepping on the gas big time!I think Canon is (a) in love with the historical 5D price point, (b) eager to win users back from Sony and (c) believe they may see rosier financials on an R-mount body (versus a 5D SLR) as there will be pullthrough of RF lens sales.
$3499. Holding firm on my estimate.
Ah okay, jeah thats indeed going to be interesting. I guess the drawback in high-fps-mode we get with Continous AF will be comparable to the last generation. So maybe 40-50% less fast FPS if you use servo-AF.Knowing a top-line spec doesn't mean you know the fine print, like (none of this confirmed, I'm just riffing here):
Stuff like that. Especially on the e-shutter / higher fps side of things, I'd be stunned if we get full RAW files with all AF features turned on.
- 20 fps e-shutter... with AF locked at first exposure, or JPG / compressed RAW only
- 12 fps mechanical... but only 5 fps when you need Eye AF or servo/tracking working
But that does not diminish the appeal too much for me -- I'm just curious to see what 'Canon over-committing to a spec sheet' looks like in reality once the camera ships.
I preordered the 5D IV and the 35 1.4 II both were extremely good experiencesAt this point, I'm 100% sure the R5 is my next camera and probably the first I ever pre-order. My 5D3 is going on six years now and has taken an absolute beating, it could really use a replacement. Even if let's say maybe the R5 tops out at 8 FPS with autofocus, which I highly doubt is the case when Canon is obviously targeting the Sony A9 with the 20 FPS electronic, it's still a huge improvement over the 5D3.
I like the EOS R at my work, but the ergonomics are annoying. The R5 solves all of that with readding the quick control dial and the AF joystick, which is my primary desire for a camera.
Now that said, if the 20 FPS has autofocus and no viewfinder delay after taking a photo, that might very well turn the R5 into a new primary camera over my 1DX2.
Who's the crazy idiot? The release date for this camera was July. It is April. No one is keeping this camera "away from us."And... Canon is doing it wrong AGAIN! WTF, give us these cameras you crazy idiots!
It is all about sales and revenue figures. They are affraid the camera won't sell in Corona times.
And of course this is true. Who want's to invest when unemployed? Not me..
But hey, what about just launch this camera now, take your loss and come up with an updated R7 in december or whatever.. Keeping a product away from us as long as economy is down is just sick and sad. But hey, Canon will always surprise you What's next? A mirrorless pro body for 9000 euros?
Good to know. Have never done it before, but especially with the concern over supply and stock I'd like to get the R5 as soon as possible, my 5D3 could really be on its last legs. I'd almost pick up a 5D4 awhile since I love the one I use at my job, but I probably won't buy another camera for at least the next 4 years after this year, and would like to be able to pick up RF lenses along the way, like the 28-70. I like the EOS R my work has, but i just would not want to put up with the viewfinder delay and control scheme when we're so close to far better, updated tech.I preordered the 5D IV and the 35 1.4 II both were extremely good experiences
