Just struggling with this.

Trying to decide whether to sell my 1DX2 and get an R6, I already own an R5.

I’ve been shooting weddings for years with my 1DX2 and 1DX and have always thought I couldn’t live without these great bodies. However, I purchased the R5 mainly for my landscape works and found that it is incredibly good also for weddings.

So I’m now trying to decide whether to sell my 1DX2 and get an R6 to shoot weddings with R5 and R6. My older 1DX is already online for sale.

My fear is I could regret after selling such a fantastic body like the 1DX2.


I have both, but when it really counts, I still pull out the 1DxII.

Really? Besides build quality I see no advantage over either the R5 or R6.

I shoot sports primarily, do maybe that's why. Battery life, weather resistance for a couple. Focus is better in certain instances. The R6 seems to jump to objects I don't want to focus on.

I know several photographers who sold or are trying to sell their 1DX2's to get the R5 and one has sold theirs after getting the R6. Peace!
