R6 Initial Impressions

Just picked up new R6 a couple days ago. Shot a bunch of images this weekend in San Francisco as well as 3-4 short video clips. My initial impressions:

1) 12 shots / sec and 20 in silent! nice to have the higher frame rates. Didn't notice any artifacts at all shooting in electronic.

2) Super fast and accurate AF. Tested out animal AF with my German Shepherd, and worked great!

3) Shot everything on Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS I cards (256GB ea). Including 4K 60. You can get a 1TB UHS I card for $300, where with UHS II, a 128GB card is $191. If I can do everything with UHS I, I can save a lot!

4) I HATE not being able to set video functions to C1, C2 and C3. Even the 5D4 would let me do that... but not the R6!?
