The Canon EOS R isn't a mirrorless 5D IV, but it's a start
What you need to know about the Canon EOS R
Canon's much-anticipated, long-rumored and at this point very leaked full-frame mirrorless camera is finally here. The Canon EOS R debuts a brand new 'RF' mount and a 30MP CMOS sensor, with Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus and 4K video.
Despite Canon's claims that the EOS R is 'the internals of an EOS 5D IV in a smaller body', the EOS R is not exactly the mirrorless EOS 5D IV that a lot of people were predicting (and hoping for) but it's not the mirrorless Rebel that some cynics were predicting, either. If anything, it's more like a slightly evolved mirrorless 6D II and - spiritually at least - it appears to have a lot in common with a much, much older camera.
With the dust only just settling after the recent launch of Nikon's Z7, what should you take away from Canon's latest ILC? Click through this article for some initial thoughts, and a closer look at the EOS R's key features.

These small, fast primes aren't cheap, but neither are the cameras you're meant to mount them to.
