I've got a full audio and written review over at my Website (external link) but the TLDR of it is:

What I like
- Excellent DR and overall IQ
- Really great autofocus
- Ergonomics and fully articulating screen

What I don't like
- Can be overpriced depending on what country you live in
- No zebra highlights in the EVF when shooting
- Battery life is good but could always be better

Here are a few of my favorite images I've taken with the R6 (more in the linked review)

What's the new (to me) non-rectangular skyscraper at the far right of photos 3 and 4?

Great job of exposure in photo 1.

Oddly shaped bokeh from the RF50 in photo 2.

It’s the new Crown Towers which is meant to be a hotel, casino and restaurants but the gov isn’t approving their casino license so currently just a hotel.

Thank you!

I actually don’t mind the more cat eyed shape bokeh! I am really impressed with the RF 50mn overall.

No Canon in live view or mirrorless does zebras before the shot. Not sure why, but they only show up in a photo review. Maybe one day that will change.

So you have a brand new RF50 with oddball shaped highlights. Theoretically the aperture should be as close to 'round' as permitted with 7 aperture blades, at least not oblong. I thought something might be amiss with your lens, but in looking at some other reviews of the 50 STM, I find similar behavior with those test lenses as well.

Yeah sadly one of the few things I miss from Sony. Since they have it in video it would be easy to add so hopefully one day!

Yeah I believe it could also be due to the light shape as when I shot it at different angles they were more round but as mentioned I liked the look of the lemon/cat eye shape so used this image.

If you examine the lemons, they are turned 90 degrees to a central point, as if impaled on spokes of a wheel, with their angle dependent upon the spoke it is impaled upon. Radial symmetry about a point at the top of the block robot's head. apparently above the 'c' of amazon.co.jp on his head.

Hi There Dlee13, are you using the latest firmware 1.3.1 on the R6?

I thought something might be amiss with your lens, but in looking at some other reviews of the 50 STM, I find similar behavior with those test lenses as well.

That is due to the exit pupil blocking part of the bokeh balls, which is why they are more clipped towards the corners of the frame, and they are oriented lengthwise on tangent to circles centered in the center of the frame. AFAIK, that's a consequence of a narrow mount and a fast, short lens, and a large sensor.

It sort of makes it worth thinking about how you compose in-camera with large bokeh balls, as the center of the sensor is where the balls will be most round, and the edges and corners will have the most directional, clipped bokeh balls. One of the things that keeps photography complex and interesting.

Hello! No still haven't got around to updating it yet, will likely do it tomorrow if I remember!

Thx for explanation, John. But 'narrow mount' and 'fast'...RF mount, 50mm f/1.8 STM lens ?! EF and RF...the third largest throat inner diameter of all current dSLRs.

And would the effect be reduced at f/4 (vs. f/1.8)?

Thanks again.

I don't have that lens, but with the EF version, f/4 is about where there is no visible effect, and f/3.5 will get some slight bokeh clipping near the (FF) corners, while at f/1.8, I start to see it as soon as the light point gets away from the very center of the frame.

Tbh I've never shot BIF photos before so I probably wouldn't be able to see any difference. If there was any issue, it would likely be on my end and not the cameras haha
