souvikdgp: I received my copy on 28th. It's a great camera and love to hold and shoot. One thing I would like to highlight, my copy was shipped with firmware version 1.1.0. Furthermore, when I switched to video and selected 4k60p IPB, it was showing allowed time as 1hr 10mins. I've started a thread on this. Anyone else experienced this? I'm not a video person and don't have much experience with video settings and all. So may be making some fundamental mistake here.

@Richard Butler or @DPR, any information on this?

Even Canon USA has it listed. Last weekend I tried few birding, stationary, with my 100-400 MK II and 2x extender. I had 1.1.0 version then on my camera. I'm not an expert but I think those images were not sharp enough. I was having IBIS on as well as lens IS. It will be interesting to see with 1.1.1 firmware if this setup is producing any sharper images.

Stollen1234: i will wait for the Canon R6 mark II

By that time market will demand R6 MK III. The point is that there's nothing called perfect.

@Richard Butler: Thanks for your reply. As I've said in the comment I don't shoot video with camera, so not very familiar with those settings. It turned out when selecting the video option it's showing available time (1h 10m in my case), but that's not what you're going to actually shoot. When I start recording it's showing as 25:00 on the top of my back screen for 4k60P and 29:59 for 4k30p.

Also it seems that they haven't added anything meaningful to end users with this 1.1.0 firmware. May be some performance and/or bug fixes were included.

Still it will be great if you can get any response from Canon to share some light on what's new on v1.1.0 for R6.

Viktor767: Wonderful review. Amazing colors. This is the next 6D. Bravo Canon!

I know even Canon themselves mentioned that R6 is new 6D and R5 is new 5D, but I beg to differ. If that's true then either R6 is much better than 6D or R5 is inferior to 5D. The reason is the differences between R6 and R5 are much much lesser than 6D and 5D. Infact, it's very tough to choose between R5/6 and eventually boils down to whether you need 45mp or not. Same autofocus, ibis, frame rate.

Mark Banas: Once again, I watched the entire video review and thoroughly enjoyed it, despite having no interest in the camera being presented. The resulting photos and video are gorgeous, showcasing the skill of the two guys who are also pretty good in front of the camera. Amazon could double your pay and still be getting a bargain. Thanks again, chaps!

I agree, their chemistry is almost as good as the Top Gear ( now Grand Tour) trio. Enjoyable to watch doesn't matter if you're interested in the gear being reviewed or not.

robert614: Even though I don’t have a Canon EF body, I still have a handful of EF lenses. I am leaning towards picking up an R5. And initially use my EF lenses via the EF to R adapter (which I already have).

I already have a full Sony kit. So I’m not in a big hurry to get all native R mount lenses. So I’m OK with adapting the lenses I already own for the time being.

I had purchased an EOS R when it was first released. Using my EF lenses adapted. But I noticed that with EF lenses with IS, the image stabilization on the lens was always on. Not just when you half press the shutter. Like on DSLR’s.

This behavior causes unnecessary wear and tear on the lens IS IMO. Especially with more expensive lenses like my 400MM DO II.

There is a quasi work around. Having the camera go to sleep after 30 sec. But that had problems of it’s own. Slow wake up times as an example.

I was just curious if anyone has seen or heard anything about this behavior changing with the R5/6 when using adapted EF lenses?

Probably you have continuous focus on in your camera setting. So your camera was focusing even if you're not shooting and thus the stabilization was at work. Just my thoughts, may be entirely wrong.

4sir: DPR, please do an in depth review as soon as possible. I can't afford a R5. I love my M6 II for travel. R6 looks like the best mirrorless for Canon hobbyists and enthusiasts.

During their hands on preview they mentioned that they are having the production spec body for R6 and pre-production body for R5. So DPR, please please do a full review of R6 sooner.

B-rad: Does this camera have focus bracketing? Thanks.

So many features, so many early reviews, I have lost the count. But if my memory is still serving me correctly then Canon mentioned about focus stacking in both of these cameras during the launch event.
