Thanks for your thoughts, Martin. I do agree that the new RF lenses are most likely technically better than older EF lenses but the tradeoff is versatility, which I think is the better of the two, especially with someone like who you deals with multiple cameras and mounts.
I have to say that after all the pre-release hype, I'm somewhat underwhelmed by what it offers. The much hyped features seem to be 8K, IBIS and AF, yet for a camera that appears to be aimed at videographers (I assume), it certainly lacks some basic features.
It has no decent audio input, only a 'micro' HDMI output, limited continuous recording time, no external recording, no external power input, 12 stops dynamic range (?), 10 bit recording and a hefty price tag.
I'm sure it'll sell like hot cakes, but for what?
Curious also as to why all the formats have a recording limit (max 29.59 min). Is this about the EU limits on what constitutes a stills camera vs video camera?
Reading further on in the review, it appears that it's all heat related.
That's not very good at all.
