Thats the truth.. I think you could be right about the big glove thing.. I shot it and moved the af point but I dont remember thinking about it. I have started using a high tech glove thinner glove inside a heavier glove for -20c and below. I did the same with the 7DII.. I do find the R moves across the screen faster than the 7DII ever did. They have heated gloves out there.. I'm interested in trying those out too.
I was more talking about the physical limitations of the R in that its adaptive Af could be and is just a smidge slower in following a subject. That is the challenge and the thing that begs me to use an R.
Well speaking of AF that was better than I had expected based on my previous experience with mirrorless. Especially when the light started to disappear.
If you're looking for specialized winter photography gloves check out the Heat 3 Smart. They are very pricey for gloves but you'll likely never want to wear another glove while shooting in the cold once you try them.
