Only if you like bats made out of the same stuff as wet noodles. . .

and these are the not so bad ones. They make me want a R3 but that's not going to happen. Maybe the R6II will take care of this problem.

same issues with the R5, rolling shutter in ES. Doing horse racing my wife said it best, "you've got 2 choices, eliminate the panning shots, or just lean into it." I've decided to do the latter.

This was taken with the electronic shutter on the R6. This car is coming at me and moving about 30mph. I am only a few feet from it and the camera misses maybe 1-2 in a burst of 20 images. These things are very very fast and twitchy.

I find my R6 to rarely miss focus. Probably like 8-9/10 are in focus. I will say that I don't shoot much football, with the helmets to block the eyes but with XC, T&F and soccer, it just plain nails the focus.

I am with you on it. I shoot mostly motorsports and concert/event work anymore and the first event I took my R6 too I managed to get 2228 with 16 shots out of focus(there was about 100 that were my fault, mostly in too slow a shutter speed and too much movement). It impressed me how confident it was even with using EF lenses(the 35mm F2 IS and 135mm F2, most shot F2-2.8). I know the last few firmware updates have really helped with masks/helmets.

I did have a moment where I was so impressed with how good the camera was, I started to expect the camera to always get the shot when I was sloppy. The issue wasnt the camera but me expecting it to perform miracles when it shouldn't. Toning back my expectations and focusing more on my technique made it go back up to that hit rate.
