Wow, wonderful

Thank everyone for your comments and the arguments are very interesting...

I don't own a R body, but I tried R, RP, and R6 in the store.

In the DSLR days, every a couple of years, a new "mark" of camera came out, 5D mark 2, 5D mark 3, 80D, 90D etc.. They always came out with better sensors and newer Digic processors. However, the release prices were more or less the same as the release prices of the previous models. So, why should we be charged more when these sensors and processors are put into mirrorless bodies? What if these sensors and processors are put into DSLR bodies? Do they not fit? Do they not produce the same IQ as they are in mirrorless bodies?... I think everyone agrees that the answer is more or less a No. The real answer to me is that they cannot be charged as much as they are put into mirrorless bodies. The R is really a better way to milk a lot more cash.

In the DSLR days, the top LCD is an indicator to distinct entry level cameras from the rest. Can someone explain to me why there is no top LCD on the R6? Is it not useful? Does it cost a couple hundred dollars to add one to a mirrorless body than to a DSLR body?

I agree there are some advantages in some areas for mirrorless body. My argument is whether it should be double of the price.
