Its a fun camera to shoot Joe.. Af is quite good although I wish I could have the small group of points with servo.. I was always a centre spot guy..
I enjoy it ....
I don't think a guy could go wrong if you shoot a wide variety of stuff and like to dabble in video...
BUT you will have to listen to the negativity... I dont think I have ever seen anything like the hate people bestow on the lonely little R.
For most of the year I do 10k a day walking and I found myself leaving the camera at home a bunch... so the smaller package is welcome on long walks.

to be honest I have not seen a lot of hate for the R, pretty much do see a lot of hate for canon as a brand and unsure why. I do think the Nikon Z and canon R got some unfavourable press, the only thing they deserved a slap for was the one card slot for the price they charge. Other than that Im not sure people have reason to spew hate on either of them, if you dont like them buy something else I say. Its not like theres not a heap of new camera gear been released over the last few months
