Price.

About $400 off?

$1,000 off. Without all that zillion K video. Then around $2K at Xmas.

That's not going to happen the next 2 years.....

Well, that was my point. I paid $2,200 for my 5D4, used it for 2+ years and sold it for $2,000; I paid much less for the R, about $2,000 for the 5D2 (when it was current), etc.

That's why i planned to stick with the R. I got one refurbished for 1700 euro. If I sell it I now I would get 1500 euro max. Then i have to pay another 3000 euro extra to get the R5.

If I would spend 3000 euro today, i should spend it on a very good lens (28-70 f/2 or 24-70 f/2.8 IS 70-200 f/2.8 or 50 f/1.2) in stead of spending it on a body. So i will wait at least 3 years, and probably longer, until the price of the R5 will drop significantly.

My reason to buy the R was to get into the RF lenses. I will stick to it.
