For those of us who have bought the 5DsR on a tryout basis, or are considering buying, one of the most important questions we can ask is just how long this discontinued camera body will be able to be repaired.

I have three Canon 40D cameras that have never needed to be repaired.

I ordered a second 5DS R as a backup just in case.

And what about the EF lenses that fit it? Will they fade out of existence sooner than we might think?

I don't expect the lenses I have to need repair. Also I think lenses will be available for a very long time. Both new and used.

The native resolution for my 5dsr, 50.6 mp raw file seems to be 8688x5792x300ppi

I don't ever expect to print larger than 16 x 24, but In case I want to I can go to 19 X 28 with the 5DS R at 300ppi
