Can be slower, now your showing your bias AND your ignorance.
When you can only shoot 3 fps what difference does lock speed matter? Could you imagine if it took longer to lock maybe you could "rifle" through 30 shots in 30 seconds
Because of the glass I was really hoping not to have to move to sony, but if this POS is canons best shot at competing they need to fire their engineers. Then again they were probably the same ones that put together the 6d2 and thought it was a good combination.
Limbo would be about the perfect term for me right now. Maybe a used 5d4 for my glass, maybe the a7iii and switch over to sony that eye auto focus is awesome and light years ahead of anything canon has.
But with it comes buying new lenses (eventually) and flash gear right now. With canons glacial rate at updating gear it may be 2 years before they come out with a better version of a mirrorless. They have a habit of waiting 5 years to come out with 4 year old tech.
First world problems I guess
Come back in week, or month if you get your hands on the camera again and I may entertain that question. The EOS R is presently in specs, and performance, one of the world's fastest autofocusing cameras. Not by frame rate, but lens and body performance per shot. And it can exceeding the lowest number you could cherry-pick (for who knows why). In a darker room, if a Sony and EOS R are pulled out on a subject by two photographers, the Sony does not own the advantage. Likewise in some better light.
I've shot with my friends A7R iii, and I know for a fact it does not own the advantage in that arena. It does have a faster frame rate, but for me, it's less than a hill of beans. I shoot slowly, precisely and deliberately.
As for Sony, it's finally nice to see they got their gear in order. Because Sony is an "egonomical turd"
Sony reminds me of toilet paper. Most rolls are about 4 inches wide with about 500 to 1000 sheets per roll. Going back a few years, Sony was like new models of toilet paper with:
- 2 in. wide
- 5000 sheets per roll
- 10 times the strength
- 50 times the thickness
- easier separating
Like a roll with some higher specs that did not overcome the weakest specs.
Today, Sony finally got up to speed and mostly dug itself out of a hole. Most good photographers don't need extreme frame rates, 4K video, IBIS, etc.. So Sony definitely needed to make the transformation it did.
