Will I want another new camera when I'm 80 years of age.

Sure it's fun to buy when in your 80s, I'm 84

I bought two 50MP 5DS R cameras, nice to have a backup.

So a little over a year after buying the 90D I purchased a new 7D Mark II. My reason for not buying a used one was that it's possible this could be my last camera purchase (though I hope not).

Those should last a very long time. I upgraded from a Canon 40D that lasted for years.

You can look forward to to this camera when you turn 80.

Canon Fires Back In The “Spec Wars” With A Rumored 80MP EOS R Camera.

as long as the exposure is ok and I don't have to crop too much.

Crop all you want with an 80MP Camera.

I love the picture.

I immediately took a quick look back at the burst and saw something coming out of the birds mouth (we'll discuss exposure issues right after).

When I got home I immediately began to process image from that burst. Not only did the bird have a fish in its mouth but at some point the bird lost the bird and went below to catch it. SEE IMAGE BELOW.

As you can see, due to the bright sky auto ISO selected 500. Oh to have been able to increase that to 1000 or a little more. It would have saved me some processing time.
