I might as well start saving up then.

Me too, because it just feels like a newer generation sensor that is able to read out faster than the 1DX III or R6
And it looks to be a fully fledged FF as well as an APS-C 4k60p camera in one package, it will be interesting to see rolling shutter measurements.

Looks like it, so perhaps the 5R has 14 stops of DR. If it just has 12 stops, it prolly doesnt make sense to include clog3. Which is not bad at all. 

went into the page couldnt see the specific saying on that. anyone else can screeny it ?

Will be very interesting to see if the EOS R6 will also get a firmware update - compressed 4K RAW anyone?

That camera is shipping a lot later - End of August.

A7S III end of September.

EOS R5 comes first end of July.

do you think this increase the overheat threshold? or your opinion on it 🙂

Wonder will they do 4K RAW like Sigma has? That will be a lot more useful.

Yes and with 12MP, it will be the most limited camera for taking stills. 🙂
Might as well buy a cinema camera, if there has to be a separate stills camera next to it.

Any cinema cameras with both IBIS and AF?

A Cinema camera is inherently more stable without any IBIS (but they do have it electronically now)

AF system on the FX9, C200, etc. are rock-solid. The upcoming FX6 will have it as well with a smaller form factor.
On the other hand, built-in ND's (especially variable ones like on the Sony cameras) are way better to have than IBIS.

So the A7SIII is quite a step down for sure, but it is also cheaper and more compact,  it has it's uses for sure.

Canon really should have went S1H route for the body, at least on one of these cameras. I guess serious shooters just need to pony up and get a C300 MK3 or C500 MK2. Or buy another brand .............

It's all about pricing.
The S1H is almost twice as expensive as the S1. So they have the R6 as-is at the S1 price level or they could have made the video-optimised version for 4000$+
Or with the R5 optimised version with the better sensor, it would be 5500$ or more. They have the 1DX III at 6500$ to fill in some uses as well.

They chose the versions that sell better, easy.
And they have factored in that video may not be that important for some people, they just want great mirrorless cameras for stills.
So they don't have to hide anything because they know what they are providing at these price points. Quite a bit more than the competition, actually.

The actual criticism of these cameras are way less than the excitement and they really don't have any problem with people choosing the S1H instead, they could have chosen it even when they didn't have these cameras at all. But now they do.
