I have been following this thread religiously. I am on the fence about the R, I have gone through the early growing pains with Canon when i switched from a 1Hv to the D30, then the D60, 7D, then the 5D series (II, II, IV).
Every Canon DSLR has taken great images, but I swore I would never again buy a 1.0 release (or maybe a 0.9, my business is software!)... I will have to say that the amazing images that everyone has posted, keep me driving to the local camera shop to play with the R!
I am not a pro, don't make any money with cameras, just an enthusiast. So, the 1 slot versus 2 doesn't play in for me, the hardest thing for me is the EVF vs OVF - it is just hard for my brain to process!
Thanks for all the good information and beautiful images captured with the EOS R.
Well, if the EVF is what's holding you back, I would suggest you take your checkbook or your Visa with you to the camera store, because that is NOT going to be the showstopper. You're going to have to find a better excuse when you look thru it if you're looking one.
BTW, remember the M50 and the like? This is hardly a .9 release (I'm in the industry also. ). I'd call it more of a 1.02, and once we get the next firmware, I'm not sure we won't get to 1.5.
