SO what can we expect from the upcoming firmware update for the R ?
I'd settle for improved tracking. I'd really like to replace my 7Dii and 6D combo but worry about its tracking ability for things like BIF and fast moving kids. For me, the tracking doesn't need to be as good as the 7Dii but it does need to be passable.
I like to shoot with a thin depth of field and the accurate focus of the R would be a godsend. The flippy screen would be a saviour for my knees too!
