It has been an awful long time since I posted but as I did eventually take the plunge in buying the R I figured I would take part Took me a while as I was so happy with the 5D4 but as the year wore on I really needed a camera which could shoot silently to avoid spooking the raptors (European raptors in a non-commercial hide setup are shy, really shy, especially goshawks). So the silent shutter, all be it for the more stationary shots, helps the birds to get confident as shutter noise and a moving lens sticking out of the hide would mostly scare them within seconds. So that feature trumps all the downsides, which are plentiful
However I do find the highlights blow really quickly and wonder if anyone has any knowledge of DR limitations using silent shutter? Not had time to test against the 5D4 or standard shutter.
