Over at CR a new rumor


suggests that the R5S (or whatever it will be called) might be released in early 2021 ( without considering the pandemic that might delay things much further).

My question: Having an R and waiting for a high-res body for landscapes (looking for more cropping capabilities), what would you do?

- buying a 5DSR now (52MP for less than 1500 bucks currently)

- wait for at least 12 months for maybe a 83MP body with most likely also higher DR

I have both RF and EF lenses so both options are viable.

Is anyone currently considering similar alternatives and has arguments for the one or the other option?


Patience will pay off.

5DSR looks a camera build centuries ago and 5R is one in the future
