Re: R or R6 - Help me Decide

I didn't own the M, but I briefly had the M3, and like you, was worried about AF performance of the other Canon mirrorless offerings, compared to my 7D and the 80D. I tried the R, and went ahead and purchased it.

the R was a very nice upgrade for me, but with 3 grandkids, ages 2+-10, (they scoot around)  I eventually  got the R6. It is a very good camera for kids on the move.

If you really want to compare before shelling out some more, rent both for a few days, and see what works for your situation.

I am not at all concerned about fewer megapixels moving from the R to the R6. The # of keepers for my limited skill set has greatly increased.
