Dustin has completed the Canon Rumors review of the Canon EOS 5DS R, a camera that a lot of Canon photographers asked for and is probably the most polarizing DSLR in terms of need that I’ve ever come across.

Do you need 50mp?

…. that is the conundrum of the 5DsR. It is a great camera, but it is also a niche one. If you need 50MP, it’s not only the best 35mm option; it’s currently the only one. But if you don’t really need 50MP, look elsewhere, as that amount of resolution comes with a cost.

I do want a high megapixel body and I like the 5DS and 5DS R, but I’m more interested in a camera with a larger than 35mm sensor. Hey Leica, howabout a 50-80mp S?
