Confused. Like everyone else I want to love the R5 but....I don't know.

I mean once you get to a certain threshold of image quality does it even matter? I would think 5DIV is already there.

Imagine quality had nothing to do with my purchase of the R.   The IQ of the original 6D is still amazing.

New mirrorless cameras have better AF, exposure preview, more information in the view finder, and lots of other features that eliminate most of my mistakes, greatly increasing my keeper rate.

The only reasons I would go with a 5D4 over an R or R5 are that I like the feel of the bigger body and I like the view of the world through the glass.

If I were a better photographer, I might still shoot a DSLR.   But I need all the help I can get.
