Now you have my interest in a mirrorless body, given that i still have mine

Thanks for the info.

How does the "Always On" bluetooth work? can you really connect/download images when the camera is off?

It won't transfer images over bluetooth. You have to connect via wifi. The bluetooth connection seems to be only for GPS. I could be wrong, but that's been my experience.

It might. Didn't seem to bother these. They never flinched or moved. I use it maybe 20% of the time and I never see any critters including birds move or look startled.

getting frustrated with the lack of availability for the control ring adapter. Does anyone have it and feel like it is a must-have, or have gotten it after getting the standard adapter? I put down a pre-order for the control ring adapter, even though I have the standard adapter that I have been using for the past few weeks. thinking of cancelling my pre-order and putting that $200 towards something else, like that Uber expensive BG-E22 grip...or perhaps that RF 35mm macro...

The always on Bluetooth allows you to quickly establish a Wi-Fi connection with the camera, from your phone once the camera is on. No need to interact with the camera at all.

I still have my old Ricoh. I don't use it any more but that too still works. All mechanical so less vulnerable, I guess.

I got my control ring overnighted from Best Buy last Friday. Might want to see if they still have them.

As for "must have" I'm still struggling with that. I need to get out and actually shoot, but as of now I haven't found a strong case where I want to use the control ring.

Edit: I just checked Best Buy. For some reason there is no "online" purchase option. But you can order it for in store pickup on Tuesday. If you have a Best Buy close.

I have a control ring adapter. I’d say it’s a nice to have but that’s it.

The control ring sounds really neat, but in the end, it is a user configurable control that makes things a bit easier or more accessible than hitting a button or menu. If I get any of the EOS-R models in the future, unless I get an RF lens that has the ring, I won't know what I am missing and will stay with the standard adapter. As I get RF lenses, I will likely then want a ring, and will get the 2nd adapter at that point. I value consistency, so I would get used to the ring on the RF lenses (quickly too I might add) and then will wish I had that available when using EF lenses.

I value consistency, so I would get used to the ring on the RF lenses (quickly too I might add) and then will wish I had that available when using EF lenses.

On the point of consistency, that is something that bugs me about the control ring adapter vs RF lenses. On native RF lenses, the control ring is out at the end of the lens. On the adapter, of course, it's on the adapter. I just question Canon's design choice on this. It would be nice if no matter what you had on the camera, the ring was in the same place, thus native lenses would have it at the back. But I suppose the optimal choice is to have it out at the end of the lens so if you are holding a longer lens, the ring is easier to operate. Which comes back to the adapter, it is really adding much if it's not in the optimal location. I have to play with it. One thing I like is you can set the ring to do nothing until you half press the shutter. I set it to always change aperture and I kept getting random apertures. There are only 4 controls, each can be controlled all the time, or only when you hold the meter button. They are Av, Tv, ISO and Exp Comp. I just set mine to Exp Comp when you are metering. And holding the camera with the 24-70 on the control ring, it seems to me that the control ring makes more sense near the body. That is where the zoom ring is so your hand is naturally close and you can pretty easily adjust zoom and the control ring.
