Handling and design

Just like the Nikon Z series, the EOS R makes a lot of effort to accommodate existing DSLR shooters, with a dial layout and menu system that will be immediately familiar.

But, also like the Nikons, it also switches to using its maker's live view AF system, user experience and nomenclature. This won't be quite such a shock for Canon users, since the Dual Pixel DSLRs were pretty usable in live view mode (and, in the case of the EOS 80D, arguably better when used that way). But it still means it won't be as easy to jump back and forth between shooting a Canon DSLR and using the EOS R as Canon likes to imply.

This image shows the optional BG-E22 battery grip. The BG-E22 can hold two LP-E6N batteries, effectively doubling battery life.
