The CRIPPLE HAMMER comes out!!!

Regarding the R6 :

.

EVF resolution is not mentioned (maybe the same as RP?) vs it's confirmed at 5.76M dots for the R5

It's been mentioned from folks overseas the pictures show the grip to be more RP like; so that's an unknown but suspect.

The LCD is 1.62M dots, not 2M like the R/R5. It's also 3.0" LCD not 3.2 like the R/R5

No 5GHz WiFi

.

Okay, that was anti-climatic wasn't it?

On the plus side, 20.1MP further suggest this is either the 1DX III or a variant. the 1DX II, sports a 20.2MP which they both have an effective 20MP, but total pixel count is different between the two models interestingly enough and many references to the 1DX II say 20.2, vs the 20.1 of the 1DX III, even though they're identical output oddly which makes zero sense to me anyways. The Approx. 21.4 megapixels Aspect Ratio, lends credit this is not the 1DX II sensor, again.

And, shutter is confirmed at 1/8000 support (not 1/4000). Phew. Glad the cripple hammer missed that one.

.

IBIS specs are strangely missing at this juncture. This isn't uncommon for leaked specs to be from someone's first draft on some KB on Canon Japan that doesn't tell the full story. Same thing happened to the M5, etc etc.

.

So much for that cripple hammer. R6 is sounding like the Z6 is to the Z7. Glad this is put to rest.

Although some might argue 20MP in itself is a cripple. I'm not one of them.
