Re: New to Canon EOS R, seeking advice on gear

I'd suggest the R6 as "the best body for the money" in the R lineup right now (IF money is a consideration).

If money IS NOT a consideration, get the R5.

Granted, the R has 50% more pixels than the R6 (which would help for landscapes), and I have one and like it, but... the improvements in the R6/R5 are just undeniable, particularly the eye-focus for both people AND animals.

I wouldn't spend the big bucks for the 1.2 lens.
Of the lenses you mentioned, I'd pick the RF 24-70 2.8.
But even that is more than I'd care to spend (I could buy any Canon lens I wanted, but I just don't think I could justify it for the amount of shooting I do).

Actually, I'd suggest the 24-105 L 4.0. It's a great all-around lens to serve as "the baseline". I remember that when the R was first introduced, one or two reviewers said (to wit), "that lens was so good, buy the camera to use with it". Of course, since then a lot of "oooh... ahhhh" RF glass has come out. But the 24-105 4.0 is still "what it was" then.
