I preordered with Adorama, and I got a credit card alert this morning that my card has been billed.

First one to post on POTN with the R in hand wins a "No Prize" ;)

I am looking forward to the Post Photos thread for the EOS R. Plus some feedback from owners.

Just as I figured, wide EFS lenses will be in pretty good demand with the EOS-R. Get your hands on those cheap 17-55 and 10-18 on the boards now, they will likely go up in price later. :)

Not sure if you’re tongue is in your cheek as you say that. It’s certainly possible, but they still won’t be able to illuminate a full frame sensor. That 10-18 APS-C lens at 10mm will be like a 16mm lens on a ~12MP APS-C sensor.

But how much $$ is a 16mm -xx zoom for full frame? How big is it and what does it weigh?
And the IQ of those EF-S lenses can be superb.

This is actually one of my biggest draws to the Canon R body/ies.
I don't have to pack my huge 24-70 f/2.8 just because I am bringing a 5D4. I can instead still use the far more flexible 18-135mm :)

Lastly, 12MP is not what I will want most of the time, but 12MP is often more than enough, particularly when the goal is to travel lite. Also, those APS-C lenses will cover the 4K video crop very well :)

Perhaps you missed all the discussion about 4k video. Since it is cropped, you put a uwa efs on it for video. As mentioned in several reviews now and the last video review by dpreview.

He’s breathing kind of hard, must be odd as heck with the tripod and big lenses

Practicality for vlogging basically out the door with his setup

I rarely shoot any video, and never on the move. So I had no idea he wasn't using any IS until he mentioned it.

One thing that caught my attention most, was in this other video, when he demonstrated the frame rates in action. I shoot single shot 98% of the time. So when I watched his demo, it made me realize how plenty the frames per second is on the EOS R for being slower compared to various other cameras. In fact, when I watched, my first thought was like man, I don't want to shoot that fast, that's a crap load of photos on the card in almost no time. He demos frame rate around 9:28

One more thought ... with no IS like his Sigma, plus no zoom, would the Rokinon 12mm f/2.8 be a viable vlog lens?

7 or 8 fps isn't enough for many of us, 3-5fps while continuous AI servo is way too little for quite a few.

I know a lot of photographers of all sorts. I'm guessing if we side-step the few forum users and look at photographers (in general) that are skilled. it would be "some" or a "few" that want faster frame rate, but I can't at all imagine "many". Of the dozens I know, there are not even few, but very few.

It's a luxury basically.

Sure 3-5 is fine for many things, but having more means a greater choice of pics to choose the keeper from. Even if you knew 200 people that don't need high burst speeds for what they shoot, that only accounts for .0002% of the 100M people that probably take pictures. I don't really think you have statistics in your favor to define how everyone else would feel. In these here parts where I know several sports shooters that shoot bursts, 3-5fps won't cut it. ;)

Plus faster bursts are fun for creating things like this.
