On article Canon EOS R3 Initial Review (1486 comments in total)
In reply to:

aftab: Despite Canon's assertion that R3 is not the flagship camera and that it is actually 900 USD cheaper, many will compare it with A1 (body + grip). The main complaint against R3 is its resolution. CanonAsia has claimed that R3 has a better "resolution performance" than 30 MP 5DIV. If this claim is true then R3's 24 MP will be more than enough for most photographers.
One thing is clear though, even with lower resolution, Canon couldn't match A1's readout speed. That is a bit disappointing. Maybe, DPAF is a drag on speed. We will have to wait to see how the IQ compares. But we know that a higher resolution sensor usually has noise and DR advantage after normalization. Despite having a slightly slower readout speed R3 may still match or offer better AF and tracking than A1, hopefully, we will know soon. And there are build quality and ergonomics. Peter McKinnon accidentally crashed a drone with R3, R3 survived, the lens didn't. Finally, there is eye-controlled AF.
Z9, where are you?

24mp is the new 30mp

2nd Wind: Its the perfect beginners wildlife lens if you want beginners to give up photography, F11! Seriously, it's perhaps the last lens a beginner should get. For close to the same price you can get either Sigma or Tamron 150-600 used or new. Fixed focal length long reach lenses require some camera savvy and hardly a perfect lens for beginners.

gipper51: Good news for A1 shooters! Now we need Canon to get off its rear end and fix the IBIS glitches with the R5/R6.

panther fan: After decades of almost never discontinuing a lens it seems that both Canon and Nikon are drastically shrinking their portfolio:

Nikon:
https://nikonrumors.com/2021/05/12/nikon-is-slowly-discontinuing-more-nikkor-f-mount-lenses.aspx/

But a lens just released in 2018? That seems like a waste of R&D

@goldaccess

Oh my...

If you read again I think you will get the difference between "Temporary Suspension" and "discontinuing".

title of article says
"Nikon Japan confirms it's indefinitely suspending orders for its 180-400mm F4 super telephoto lens after today"

In reply to:

PNad: I’m not sure what impress me more, the fact that the A1 can shoot electronically with absolutely not penalty (full 14bit readout, no perceived increased noise) and even sync with flash, it literally could have been released without a mechanical shutter

Or the fact that half the comments totally ignores it and think a Canon R5 is a cheaper A1.

the R5 is a cheaper 8K

User1234567890: Battery 100% = 20fps

Battery 80% = 20fps

Battery 50% = 20fps

Battery 25% = 20fps

Battery 5% = 20fps

20 is Sony's choice, they could go far if they wanted.

Jeffjeab: I just watched petapixel.com https://petapixel.com/2020/08/07/removing-the-memory-cards-fixes-eos-r5-overheating-over-hdmi/
Check it out no overheating solution at least on their side, removing the 2 slot cards and hooked up hdmi external to adamos ninja , using dummy batteries as well. He was able to record 4 hours with no overheating. If it's legit then?

but is the juice worth the squeeze?

silentstorm: After reading this, my geekiness kicks in.

I would very much like to buy a R5 and mod the heatsink inside. Remove the existing heatsink, measure its dimension, get a small workshop to duplicate the heatsink in pure copper, then use high quality thermal grease like the Artic MX4 to fix it up.

I wonder would that improve the thermal limitations? Sounds crazy but fun!

sell the results to other camera companies

Thoughts R Us: Meanwhile the camera continues to sell like hotcakes, is sold out everywhere, and people on forums are asking for tips how to get it.

Reality vs the forums.

doesn't matter how well it sells it won't prevent Canon or any other camera company from having the worst year in memory

the R5 looks like a very fine stills camera

underxposed59: Instead of worrying how to compete with smartphones,because it's too late for that, camera companies should consider what technology will replace smartphones.
Olympus may be in a better position than others.

well smartphone replacement will be medical implants but I wasn't thinking of roto routers or endoscopes
I mean why carry a device when you can be the device
thinking more encompassing hive mind/mindless
upside cure for blindness alzheimer's & others
downside zero privacy from government surveillance & control
