6D Retirement


I'm on the fence with this one. EOS R vs 5D mk IV.

I have been a happy 6D user for the last 7 years. I am now considering an upgrade to the 5D mk IV or an EOS R. (Cant justify the cost of the R6 or R5)

I don't upgrade often and I expect another 7 years out of my purchase.

In Australia 5D4 costs $3239au ($2320USD)

EOS R with EF adaptor is nearly $600au cheaper.

(prices are grey market, with 5 year warranty)

I really love my 6D as far as ergonomics and control layout, I find usability a very important aspect of cameras.

The R would be a no-brainer however my main concern is the sideways step Canon took with the control layout.

I focus with the AF-on back button and I see many negative comments about button placement on the R. Also no rear dial for exp comp.

I'd appreciate comments on the control layout of the EOS R? Is it that bad?

Oops...Perhaps I should have posted in the R forum.
