    Brant - excellent summary. You're right in every respect. If/when I get the R5 I will probably opt for the battery grip, as much for the vertical shooting convenience as for the extra power. It...

    Okay that's very interesting stuff! I'm thinking that the battery life info must be a typo --- the columns are probably reversed. Frame rate will slow down in my 1DX3 for all the factors listed...

    This is a great photo-only review of the R6: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6E6aGswzcE
    Of note, BIFs work great, especially with a f/4 or better lens.
    The biggest new finding is that the frame...

    Yes that would work. And if you have a leveling base on the tripod, you could use that to adjust for camera angle. However rotating to vertical wouldn't work.

    That's a good observation --- it looks like a gimbal is not possible with this lens. But I suppose you could use a rail and clamp setup to make it work from a camera bracket..? Something like this:...

    I should add, he isn't into birds at all, hence nothing on that subject. But other reviewers have covered that quite well already.

    John is a superb wildlife photographer and I've known him for several years. The big game changers for him are the light weight and quietness of the R5, because he spends a lot of time on foot. ...

    Thanks very much! There weren't a lot of entries but my jaw sure dropped when I saw Kari's pano --- very nicely done.

    This is a really good review. And the camera had no problem maintaining 12 fps with BIFs, which is very nice to see.

    Ha ha yes the 1DX is the Harley Davidson of cameras... it's not exactly known for its stealth :p. That said, I've never spooked an animal because of the shutter noise.

    For sure, 12 fps is adequate, but this will always be your peak speed and in reality you're almost never going to get this. It's sort of like salary versus take-home pay... there are always...

    Interesting comment in the description about the dramatic drop in frame rate when tracking subjects, especially with a long lens. Is this an inherent problem with mirrorless, since focus is achieved...

    It's definitely very good for BOAS, quite fantastic really. But it's interesting that they had some trouble with BIFs in some cases, perhaps due to the lag and blackout. With my old fashioned...

    No you need a dedicated card reader for CF Express. It would be nice if someone made a multi-purpose card reader that could do both types but I haven't found one yet.

    What are you shooting with the 500 mm lens, that would benefit from a slower shutter speed? If it's birds or other wildlife, they will need to be perfectly still to get the shot. I can see where...
