    I see Canon have unveiled the new R5 and R6. At first look they appear to be very impressively specked...

    They do. I look forward to the reviews. What surprised me was the 600 and 800 mm F11 primes at, relatively speaking, modest cost. I presume that with viewfinder brightness easily compensates and that AF works well.

    I'm pleased the prices are utterly out of my range so I don't have to be tempted, they are very nice.

    Canon surprising some people, especially with the video. The specs have been public knowledge for a while though.

    Finally, IBIS in a Canon.

    The AF tracking in the video looked impressive. I wonder if it only works like that in ideal conditions.

    At last a body worthy of the high-end ‘R’ mount lenses that Canon’s been offering for the last couple of years. (I’d be curious to know how many of their £2,000+ ‘R’ mount lenses had been bought before this announcement!)
