Lower resolution EVF is better if it means less lag and blackout. Let autofocus do focusingEVF with lower resolution than the R 5.
Could mean: - like the RP, very bad choice.
- like the R, so the R 5 would get a higher resolution than the R. Great news for the R 5 !
Still hoping for an EVF as good as Panasonic or Leica SL 2, and wondering why so few post seem to care about viewfinder definition...vital for me.
The R's major drawback (for me !) is its poor EVF's definition. If you don't believe me, compare the Pana SR1 and the R.
Hey, who has experience with the M5, R and RP to share some light on EVF differences, (not specs and what you read) Real Life.
Did you use RF lenses with the R cameras, or EF?. The external EVF on my M6II seems to behave better with fast movements than the R/RP, but I have had it only since last month, so not much real world usage yet.

From my experience in a store, the RP viewfinder is very much inferior to the one in the R, especially in terms of resolution and maybe refresh rate. The perceived motion blur seemed less aggressive on the R. But maybe that was a difference in settings, as far as I know you have to turn on the smooth viewfinder mode, right?
Have you ever looked at the equipment used by many of the finalists over the years in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competitions ?
My comment wasn't so much aimed at lower end equipment, but the fact that by far the most common resolution / output size used is around 20 mp !!Nothing beats being closer and spending a lot of time in the field, which wildlife finalists are willing to do, both from a skills developed and time spent perspective. The golden eagle shot in 2019 was 3 years of familiarisation and a camera trap. THREE YEARS. There was more than a smattering of rather expensive gear as well. A 5D2 is a fairly old camera, but once its in a seacam underwater housing, we're in very different territory
Most of us are mere mortals who simply want to get as good a picture as possible within our personal circumstances. Whether its better AF, more FPS, more MP, more reach, they hold their attractions. And if we're honest shiny toys might be a part of it too.

It is pointless to complain about it, when there are many other Canon cameras, like the 5DsR, 5D Mark IV, EOS R as well as the EOS R5 (and one more coming) that do offer that capability and the main competitors of this camera all have 24 Megapixels. Which, let's admit, is practically the same, considering it will offer advanced video capabilities, which will be taken into consideration by its potential buyers.That wasnt my major focus either - its more that 20Mp is great when you have the other aspects discussed that let you fill the frame with the scene in question, ie skill/patience, 800mm lens (!) etc to get that close. Most of us mere mortals wont be managing that, hence cropping, the desire for more Mp and the like.

The RP and R are much cheaper and offer more megapixels, so it's not like there isn't more choices available for those who want to spend less. It is always bad practice to buy products at launch, after a year they will be considerably cheaper.We all have our goldilocks preferences vs whats actually on offer. I will hopefully be getting the R5, but not everyone will have that kind of budget.
If the subject is not moving, dual OIS & IBIS of (tested & verified) 6.5 stops can and will stop motion to look just like a tripod for all "reasonable intents and purposes". That reduces shake by a factor of 90 to 1! My EM1mk2 with 12-100 f4 and 300mm f4 pro lenses do exactly that. I also have a tripod, and use it when I do panoramas to get perfect repeatable position registration between pictures. But I also can take the same panoramas handheld with 6.5 stop dual IS and they still are as sharp and stitch together fine. If you have never seen real (tested & verified) 6.5 stop dual IS then you should. And a few makers have even gone beyond that now.
I'm looking forward to the R6, R5 & R5s IBIS with optical IS at the same time. It's harder to stabilize a FF sensor than a MFT sensor due to the increased mass, but if they can get it above 6 stops (verified) then it'll be spectacular.
My only comment about IS claims, is that they have to be tested & verified to be believed. I have seen some makers exaggerate them or say "up to" so many stops. If it's not verified, including on the particular lens you use, then "buyer beware".
Doesn't work with MF, macro or vintage lenses. Pana SR 1 or Leica SL2 have (subjectively, couldn't measure) less lag or blackout than the EOS R...Lower resolution EVF is better if it means less lag and blackout. Let autofocus do focusing
