    I don't think anyone on the site has the EOS R.

    For me the EOS R is not the right compromise. When photography is incidental to the occasion I like the M5 with the 22mm pancake (or 50mm 1.8 with adapter). The rest of the time I prefer the 5D IV.

    A point of ergonomics not too often mentioned is that the mass of the camera plus lens is helpful for eliminating effects fine tremor of the hands and fingers, at least until they fatigue.

    I am very closely now following all the info that is coming out from the EOS Ra. I am not suprised if i have that some point next year to replace my 5div with it. Since i am mostly taking pictures nightime, this body is sooooo tempting.

    If the rumors are correct, I am waiting for the uber high megapixel version and then I will be done w/ hardware for awhile.
    If you see me with a wrench, call 911

    For those on the fence, I was in Hunt's Photo & Video today and they have the R and RP at the Canon rebated price of $1,799/$999 plus a $200/$100 gift card, respectively.

    Well, refurb at $1229 in the Canon store had me. I'll let you know once the weather clears and I have a chance to use it.

    Ha! I am actually glad someone pulled the trigger on that sale.

    From what I hear, the eye AF for family shots is really something. That has been my main temptation to take advantage of the sale, but checking out pictures from all the Christmas parties where I took candid shots, the 24-70 f/2.8 really did not miss much at all. I will say the few I took with the 85 f/1.4 (@f/1.6-2 usually), there was a higher miss rate there (of course). So, I'd be curious what your hit rate is with candid shots taken with shallow dof and primes.
