I genuinely didn’t think that I’d like the Canon EOS R; but I bought one not only for business reasons, but because I actually like it.
If you had told me a year ago that Canon would come out with a camera like the Canon EOS R and that I’d actually purchase one from Adorama, I would’ve laughed in your face. But Canon has genuinely surprised me. The Canon EOS R camera is targeted at the semi-professional and high end enthusiast and can be looked at as a bit of a fusion between the Canon 5D Mk IV and the Canon 6D Mk II but stuffed into a mirrorless camera body and given a few new adjustments that make it a uniquely Canon product vs being another Sony copycat. The camera houses a more than sufficient full frame 30.3MP sensor that is a happy medium between many of the 24MP sensors and the 42MP+ sensors out there in full frame cameras. To that end, one could argue that it is sort of positioning itself to be a jack of all trades and a master of none.
In real life and extended use with the camera though, I can say with all confidence that it’s doing a pretty darn good job.
