It's been interesting to watch the evolution of camera gear. I was pretty jazzed when I first got my Nikon FE with a motor drive and aperture priority auto-exposure. Everything else was manual. The feature set was pretty limited (I guess I'm dating myself here.). It's somewhat funny to look at the specs on the cameras that are now available and see people complain with such wailing and gnashing of teeth about what spec or feature the camera doesn't have. I know the feature set is all relative, and well, people need something to complain about (first world complaints at that). The EOS R looks to be a quite capable camera and probably a lot more camera than the average user needs or will ever use. Part of what's noteworthy with this release is that Canon released a EOS R ecosystem, not just a camera body. Kudos to them for taking that approach. Will I buy it? Probably not. I simply don't need any more gear (famous last words). But it has perked my interest to see what might come in the EOS R Mark II, or whatever else Canon has waiting in the wings
how patient are you?
consider that some folks wanted the original 6D to have dual card slots. That camera was announced in 2012, and the EOS-R is arguably the successor. So currently, we're at the 6 year mark, how many more are you willing to wait for the features you want?
or will you simply pay for a grade higher camera that offers such feature?
How long will you wait for IBIS, which Nikon and Sony offer? or simply make due?
it's your hard earned money, you should definitely look into this.

So the crop is going to be 3840 x 2160 taken from the middle of the 6720 x 4480 max resolution for 1:1 pixels in 4k?
Makes me think that video quality will be quite alright, but the crop and relative lens range is the distraction.
that's the easy way to tackle 4K, least intensive, and what Canon does. Most obvious problem with this is having at least two lenses for a hybrid shooter, one for stills and one for video. Buying a FF camera that behaves as a crop is somewhat disturbing, but it's video, and not many folks care about video.
The newly release Fuji X-T3 has jaw dropping video specs, 4K60, 10 bit internal, H265 codec...... truly next generation specs. I'm hoping this would push the envelope for all.
