Re: 5D vs EOS R - Longevity?

Who can tell what longevity any particular individual product will have?  With the DSLR you have years worth of product development, debugging and manufacturing experience. With the mirrorless, you have fewer moving parts but a new design with less manufacturing experience. But it is probably more the luck of the draw: you could get a camera which fails after a year or lasts fifteen years; regardless of the design or manufacturer.  Buy which ever camera meets your needs and pocketbook and take photos.
