Congrats - be poised to receive the tradition 'low light' shot requests, Raw image downloads, and unreasonable testing procedures like its the only thing you should make time for lol. Enjoy and get out and shoot.
What bodies are you coming from?
My request lol is let me know how a previous body felt and how does the R7 compare.
And - how is the EVF?
Thanks. Unfortunately I won't be able to really spend much quality time with it before the weekend, and by that time I'll be just one of many owners here, and not a particularly knowledgeable one at that. This is simply my accidental 15 minutes.
I'm coming from a 7DII, although for the past year I've also been using a Sony a6400 with an adapter. This is my first R body and I'm not even familiar with the M6II, so there are a lot of unfamiliar modes I need to learn that I've never used like flexible priority and RAW burst mode.
Illustrating that point, and to your EVF question, when I was looking through it last night, the EVF seemed fine inside my house, but occasionally it would suddenly get dark and the frame rate dropped noticeably. Eventually I realized that was the automatic power saving kicking in when I didn't push any buttons for 10 seconds! I think there's a menu setting to change the time on that.
For the feel comparison, it's a lot lighter than the 7DII, that's for sure! The grip is a good size and I don't anticipate any difficulty holding it with the adapted Sigma 100-400|C. I usually don't use neck straps, but I like the Peak Design Clutch hand strap and I find that helps a lot. I never had a problem holding that lens on the Sony with it, and its grip is much less deep.
I am a little bit concerned about the rear dial/joystick combo only because I have long thumbs and it might be an awkward bend trying to get onto them. The reviewers I've seen have said they were able to quickly get used to that so I'm hopeful.
Hope that helps!
