    Just to make the "R" system even more tempting:

    I am very impressed with all my breakthrough filters. I suspect these are excellent and if I had an R, or, if I get an R, I will likely get a couple of these.

    Ha...I am just wondering how much I am going to love it. I do have to give it back, but before making any decisions involving this much money, I wanted to get it in my hands.

    Congrats. I think this first wave of distribution is going to be something like a lottery.

    Ha...excellent

    As for reviews, here is a good one, still video centric. Primarily about video, until 19:50, where he just calls them excellent cameras for stills and then launches in who he thinks these cameras are for, and really, it is many, many people..

    After all this, is anyone surprised Canon punched out an amazing stills camera(s) that are photos first and video second? After all, Canon still has their cinema lineup that are video first.

    All the issues I read about are video based. Really, these are perfect for how a shoot. 99% stills with the occasional video, but my videos are 1080, so, none of this affects how I shoot.

    Photons to photos has the R5 DR. I assume the R6 is the same as the 1DX III. Then, there is a bit of a loss at low ISO using the Electronic Shutter and, of course as you are using less of the sensor, APS-C.

    The hitch at ISO 400 is interesting. Previously I have only seen that on Sony sensors and may implies Canon now has "dual base ISO" as Sony has claimed. Just watching a video on it, it gets down to having a second set of circuitry for adding analog gain, one optimized for low light (higher ISO) and a second optimized for more light (low ISO). Thus, you get a shift, as you see with the R5, at the point where the circuitry shifts. Previously, as I understand it, Canon would apply analog gain to whole stops and then push/pull digitally to the 1/3 stops creating a wavy effect (5DIII here to show the effect). The R5 is the first time I have seen this dual base ISO set up in a canon sensor. Cool


    And....the R5 at ISO 100 now tops the Sony A7RIII/IV. I am not going to suddenly flip and say DR is the only thing in the world that matters, but, you know...Canon now has bragging rights..for now.

    I was impressed with the IQ of the mid day bird pics. The detail of the eye of the birds was adequate.
    The rest was not a surprise, the lens usefulness is going to be light limited. The Cheetah picture looked to me to be close to the breaking point and it was just shaded mid day.
