Re: Getting an EOS R instead of R6?

For the past year or so I've been shooting with the R and the R6 - often using them both in the same session - and FWIW I can't fault the OP's thinking.

If I'm shooting any action then obviously the R6 is my first choice. I've also noticed that the R6's eye focus often has the edge in low light venues, and coming from the 5D series I still feel more at home with the R6's shape and layout than I do with the R.

Outside of those areas however the R can at least hold its own vs the R6, and there are times when I'm grateful for its extra resolution. It's a very capable body and I wouldn't be without it (unless I could swap it for an R5!!)
