memo90061: Don't know if I should return my Panasonic 18mm F1.8 for this. I'll save $200 dollars and lose the F1.8, but I'll have 14mm...

The same range, but f/8 35mm equivalent aperture.

PredatorsPrey: Yay another camera with paid (software?) upgrade, can't wait till we see subscriptions for single features.

Lets look it other way - you don't have to pay extra 200$ if you don't need this feature / upgrade.

nameless0ne: I just watched some reviews and seems video AF is on par with Sony and better than Canon or Nikon! I would even say, probably, can be better than Sony. Auch!

S5 II has failed even in vlogging af test, watch iPhonedo video - it lost his face for a good minute when he was filming himself in good daylight, smoothly riding onewheel.

bluevellet: Cool of Panasonic to finally get with the program with PDF. I also like the improvements with IBIS and the new cooling system looks intriguing, although mostly useless to me as a photocentric camera user.

I find it interesting that all those features are on an entry-level body FIRST. The S1, S1R and S1H are older models with no updates in sight... yet. With the totally average sensor and EVF of the S5, I am looking forward to updates of these higher-end models. PDF is one of those welcomed features that sounds like it could definitely be improved upon

So, not bad.

Try to shoot portrets of non-static people with fast primes - and then we will talk about "uselessness of fast and ACCURATE" PDAF in real life.

Gkuzu: Please do focus test of S5II with R5-R6II and A7IV-A7V. Everywhere it is said that the S5II is better.

No, it's not. Check reviews from Potato, iPhonedo, CVP and other respected reviewers. it's not possible to make a perfect AF system in the first generation. It took Sony and Canon 2-3 iterations to finess thier AFs.

It's far better the DFD thou. But has some bits to improve.

Inspired Shot: Priced very competitively. I like how they made 2 different versions. The UHS II card choice is puzzling as it basically guaranteed quick bottleneck during bursts.

I assume photographers would prefer other bodies to shoot full raw fast bursts )
Clearly S5 II aims at videographers / hybrid shooters with video first features in mind.

it's nowhere near as robust and reliable as Canon's or Sony's AF in the latest bodies, what kind of reviews have you watched?

Scratches, dust particles and other "imperfections" on the front element of the lens are highly visible when you have a bright source of light in frame or hittin the surface of said element. Off course in the case shown by Lensrentals you can't see anything.

Satyaa: Though I am not looking for a FF camera anymore, this is the first Canon model in the RF mount that excited me.

It has a lot of new features, improved performance, a 24MP resolution which is the sweet spot for lot of things, etc. All the others so far were either rough in some features, too pricey or too much resolution for my purposes.

Canon has done a good job with this one.

Now only if someone can address that third-party lens support :(

If you don't need good AF for your work - that's fine, you can use ef lenses on E-mount.

And you are wrong - one can adapt Sony lenses on Canon camera)

EF glass on Sony cameras have never worked "natively", especially with speedboosters.

Bigsensorisbest: With all its faults, you can get a Sony a7R4 for the same money. Don’t know how canon are still in business.

Canon's business is broader the just photo/hybrid cameras.

Newton Bryce: Looks like a decent mirrorless camera. I really liked this one, but I find it a bit pricy to upgrade from my Canon D5 mark III now when Canon keeps others away from their R mount. Tough desicion for us with limited budget.

Don't you know that on Sony E-mount third party lenses perform worse then native Sony E glass in some aspects?

It is a world wide CONSPIRACY of Canon ( Sony, Nikon) , nothing related to quality/ lower price / engineering of third-party lenses :)

Optics and af electronics can't be made cheap and excellent the same time, you can't brake laws of physics. And RF 28-70 2.0 costs a ton exactly because of optics laws.

Anyone who continue to press keybord saying "rf glass is rediculosly expensive" just haven't shoot with RF glass. They are fantastic. For exemple - RF 35 1.8 IS someMacro lens, super affordable prime with stabilisation and macro capabilities, has razor sharp image at 1.8, and all of this just for 499$. Give me a comparable example of third-party EF 35 mm prime with IS, that is substantially cheaper and has the same IQ.

Sony A7R4 have its AF and drive speed anywhere near R6 Mark2? Two totally different cameras.

Obviously Canon had in mind to make their EF glass legacy work flowlessly on R system, in my experience EF lenses perform even better on my R6 compared to 5D Mark3, and I have used 7 different Canon EF lenses.
How is that "not native" ?

I.m using R system for 2 years, and only now I've bought my first RF lens - 35 1.8 IS, mostly for video work.

The next lens definitely will be RF 24-70 2.8 IS

Every time i used third-party lenses on my EF DSLRs Canon I promised not to do this again, the problems with AF accurasy/calibration were really annoying.
You would think that with mirrorless RF Canon these problems have gone? Not so fast) I bought TWO different Tamrons (EF, not RF obviuosly), and they both hunting and pulsing in Servo AF tracking mode. None of my Canon EF glass do this, they track perfectly fine (and half of them are really old). So why is this happening, they are all EF-protocol lenses, why I have problems with Tamron?
Not only AF, but IS in 24-70 2.8 Tamron acted like crazy on Eos R, 16-35 f/4 IS and 70-200 f4 IS work way better.

Sigma EF tele zooms like 150-600 also have well known problems on RF bodies. Why is that? I don't remember Canon closing the EF protocol off.

I have a dream: The kind of update Nikon and Fuji give for free through firmware update...

They updated sensors, hotshoe and body ergonomics via firmware?

Clavewifi: Looks nice, but: if someone has zero interest in video and given the price of the Nikon z5: is there a difference in terms of IQ? (If you already can make statements on that). Thanks

MILC man
if you shoot only lanscapes and other static scenes, thats fine. But to get an image in action you need exellent autofocus and drive speed. But if Mp is your only consern - Z5 is as good as R6M2 )

Sadovski: Did they put a feature to add shutter sound at electronic shutter mode ? I very often need to be completely silent, instead i want an audible or tactile feedback of shutter. White frame brings a very poor control of bursts and even single frames.

I have now visible blackout in my R6 viewfinder in H+ drive mode (electronic shutter shooting).
I want shutter sound options with firmware update for R6 Mark1

Z5 is an amateur camera compared to this "beast".
