I’m starting to think that’s possible at some point. The wife doesn’t know about the Sony technically. I’ve used it in front of her and she’s never said anything. But she bought me 2 red ring lenses for birthday’s for me, so that would be thin ice to sell those. I also still feel more comfortable operating the Canon. The Sony still lacks something in ergonomics. I’m sure the joystick helps a lot since the most frequent thing is the focus point. And I know it’s silly and there are ways around it, but I like the GPS on the 5D4. I also like the touch screen. I’m not comfortable with video on the Sony at all. Maybe I just need a training course or to watch some of the videos online again now that I’ve had the thing for 9 months or so.
there are a few things that I really enjoy with the R3.
I'm primarily a rear LCD screen shooter nowadays, unless sunlight is really bothering me. Touch screen is really fantastic, I use it quite a bit more than the joystick . I think the joystick implementation is really good, movements are really quick, but since I hardly do EVF, not a big factor for me.
The AF recall button.... turns out, I use that quite a bit, between point AF and wide area. One click switch, sometimes I just want the closest in focus and wide area simplifies a ton.
Shot to shot is very DSLR like @8fps and below. None of the shutter stutter of the R2, the UI is fast and responsive in that regard. It's the minimum blackout "live" shooting feature that the A6500 had. Not quite A9, but no other camera offers the A9's totally unique blackout free experience.
Spray and pray. Jumping sequences, crank to 10 fps and you'll get something decent.
GPS, I really loved the canon GPS, but missing it for years, I kind of forgot about it. The R3 offers phone pairing via blue tooth. Once setup, you just need your phone on when you turn on the camera, and it should auto pair.
From the front, the R2 and R3 look identical. Even the rear, only a sony user would spot the difference. My wife cant tell
that said, I'm going to make my best effort to stop buying gear, on paper, my collection is rather complete, and I really should stop....... well with the exception of a fast AND small 35. if it doesnt materialize, then I'll simply continue on with what I've got.
