EOS 1D mark 3 or EOS R/R6
1

Just today I learned that the shutter of my EOS 5D is breaking down. Unfortunate but I was already thinking about slowly going the EOS Rx route. Slowly because I haven't decided which camera (R5 is too expensive at the moment, RP, R and R6 are under consideration). Also the lenses I want to purchase first are not available yet/at the moment: RF 24-105 f/4 and 50 mm f/1.8.

The repair person has an 1D mark 3 on offer, in mint condition, few actuations, for € 800 which is roughly USD 800. This is a tempting offer IMO.

Comparing specs between EOS R and 1D mark 3 it is easy to see 11 years of development. The difference in resolution is clear, 10 vs 30 MP, etc.

What the specs don't tell is the difference in handling/user experience. Can anyone who has gone from APS-H to full frame MILC shine a light on this? I appreciate your input.
