I'd like to see a real study on this rather than assumptions.
While the EVF on the EOS-R is not bad , it’s not even close to what I see in the OVF on my 5D Mark IV or my 1DX.I'd like to see a real study on this rather than assumptions. I honestly cannot tell the difference myself. At least not with the R as compared to the 5D III I used to have. It would seem that staring through any viewfinder for extended periods might strain the eyes. Now, the EVF on my Olympus sucks.
None of these look anywhere close to any rumors. I have a few wants in my next camera. We'll just have to wait until more is known+1. You're presuming the 1DX3 would be outperformed by a high fps mirrorless rig, or more desirable somehow. But Canon might make it small like the A9, the battery life would be wretched for folks leaning on the shutter all day and balance with big lenses could be dreadful.
But yes, if Canon offered identical spec cameras other than one having a mirror and the other not having one, I would want to hear about both cameras on the same day. We're in a period of migration to mirrorless, and for some, the purchase represents a bit of a plunge. Adaptors are great and our EF glass will still work, sure, but a large body investment might be the only major pickup some folks make for a few years -- so they'd like to know what else might be coming in the same feature-set.
I can see the problem with my Olympus. I am not getting it on my R.My mind on that test:
1) That would totally look like A Clockwork Orange, or
2) They might just contract a few sideline sports pros to exclusively use an EOS R (or test cam with occasionally changed out test VFs) once a week and ask how it compares.
It was a hard decision, R vs 5D Mark IV. No doubt about that. Glass tipped the scale for me. That and AFMA.I wanted to feel this way, especially after my good friend CFB went the same route. However my experience was different and I didn't drop the coin. (All physical/hardware/ergonomic based- but that is how I roll) I read all the time of 5D4 shooters on the fence, so I understand the 5D3 move, it's a leap, if it fits.
IBIS in only a high res model does not make much sense imo. That would pretty much kill its sales. We've already got IBISless R and Rp. IBIS and new AF-ON button with new functionality need to standardise in Canon bodies from now on.If Canon is planning an EOS R mark ii but the specs didn't match the rumor we can start guessing which parts are right/wrong. So here are my guesses:
-32Mp Sensor: maybe not exactly but around that
-IBIS only in the high res model
-12fps only without af, 8-10 with tracking af
-only SD cards on the R, CFexpress only on the high res model
I should have known that the first rumor was to good to be true, it was more like a whish list.
