It's really expensive system but on the other hand it offers really top performance with unique lenses, so it's fair. I've counted everything I wanted and arrived at price which is more than decent car. In comparison my Fuji system is really slected for best bang for buck, it arrives at about 1/3 or 1/4 if I sold it as used. If I keep only full frame Canon lenses then I will hardly reach R5 buying price alone

It really depends on the use case. For wildlife and BiF I agree the new system has unique features. But for landscape, portrait or studio, even for travel you pay a lot of money for features you do not need. Due to the low mpix count of the R6 you would even want to get the R5, which means more $$$ for nothing you care about.
