Canon Reveals Their Mirrorless System!

With about a week between them, Canon and Nikon are back in the race.
Or has Sony already won?
It’s Canon’s turn now with the EOS R mirrorless.
So what’s different?

Well, as much as everyone was screaming about Nikon only having one card slot, with a faster media card ecosystem, Canon has only one card slot as well, using older SD media card technology. admittedly, I have a ton of fast SD cards.
With a higher price tag on the Nikon Z7 for the 45.7 MP version, (about $1000 higher) Canon has only 30 MP.
Both cameras are capable of 10 Bit Log files for video.
Both systems allow for using existing lenses, so as not to fully screw over current users.
Canon has a fully articulated LCD so you can do your vlogging with ease, as you can see in the above photo.

Touch and drag focusing?
OK, that’s interesting.

They are introducing new glass as well as adaptors to utilize the glass you may already have.
Those who have a huge investment in the system will be happy that they will not be left behind. There are a avarieyty of adaptors for $100 to $250 depending on how much control you want over your old lenses.

Mirrorless is the trend. The majors are there. Our backs are happier.
Personally, I currently use Fuji for mirrorless, and am very happy with the gear. With the Nikon entry and being able to use all of my glass, that could change things for me.
You may have made the move to Sony already, so this won’t change your mind. Just keep your mind open.

And here is a PDF of the specs:
