I just don’t see the R as a 5D
It’s a 6d at most
It’s not a professional mirrorless camera like the 5d
People have been making great photos without IBIS for more than 130 years. I have been making great photos without IBIS for more than 50 years. I take that to be proof that it is not necessary, though I recognize that it could be useful for some people—and gratifying for those who fall for every new gimmick that comes along.
Well said my friend! I have the 7d2, 5d4 and the R. All capable pieces of equipment, but each with their particular nuances. I do find switching between the 5d4 and the 7d2, to be quite instinctive or easier, yet switching to the R after either of the others is still a challenge for me. My 5D4 I can shoot without hesitation, without having to think about where my fingers are going or what changes they are about to make, yet with the R, it's still not intuitive, often wrong buttons are hit and the screen sometimes changes and I find difficulty getting it back to where I needed it. Those are all in part ergonomic issues for me, but also the layout as well. I've captured some great images with my R, and I will say I like it, but it's more of a chore to work with than either of the others... I'll keep all 3 for now..
1 series R
5 series R (5D replacement eventually)
RP (6D Replacement)
Rebels are dead (Replaced by M)
Nope, way too simple. Canon has stated that they will make cameras (rf mount) under and above "the currently available cameras"
Canon isn't going to just have 3 lines to handle all it's users. you're stating the RF will have no entry level models - that's just not going to happen. a 1K RP is not entry level. they will go under that. Also the name "Kiss" or "Rebel" has been the biggest selling camera line for Canon (if not the industry) - Canon isn't going to just walk away from that.
APS-C is going away, Canon will have to create RF mount entry level to replace it.
Kiss/Rebel were around long time before APS-C DSLR's.OK, you seem to be contradicting yourself. They're not going to go away from Kiss/Rebel...those are APS-C cameras. Then you say APS-C is going away.
Personally, I expect that Kiss/Rebel is going to transition to the M mount--but only if Canon provides more/better native EF-M glass. (Meanwhile, the adapter works!) If there's any sort of APS-C version of R, that''s years down the road--and I think Canon doesn't plan to do it. (It would represent them changing their minds.)
Except for the fact that it is the low end that is dying out. A $1k FF sounds pretty entry level to me. Time will tell.Kiss/Rebel were around long time before APS-C DSLR's.
the only reason they weren't full frame in the Digital Era was because of cost
IMO, they will most certainly have a Kiss/Rebel RF mount camera - and it will be full frame.
A $799 FF camera at launch will be even more entry level. Since we are prognosticating, I foresee Canon releasing some RF lenses that I will buy. Further, I see a hi-rez R in my future...
If Canon really can push the cost of FF well below 1k (And it looks like they already do, based in some RP offerings we saw), that may well save the low end.
No. The 6D and 6D II have their own, specific sensors.Didn't 6D have 5DII sensor?
