Or not?

For 1Dx3 Canon said "incredible low-light shooting capabilities". For R5, there is no mention of any dynamic range base ISO or high ISO improvements in the announcement. No mention whatsoever of any IQ improvement. Not much detail on anything, really.

Now the important question: What will be the price?

High. No reason not to.

The extreme lack of detail is intriguing - building the hype machine I would say - or perhaps they haven't fully determined every aspect of the design.

I am a bit of a brand switcher myself, (Owned Canon, Nikon, Sony) but I cant see myself going back to them - not a fan of the ergonomics or expensive beer keg lenses. (and now we have some cheaper but very slow kit lenses)

Good menu system though.
