Canon EOS R Review by DPReview

Canon EOS R Review By DPReview
The Canon EOS R. High resolution model coming in 2020?

DPReview posted their exhaustive review of the Canon EOS R, and it is not an entirely positive review.

DPReview found a series of things they didn’t like, starting from ergonomics:

Surprisingly for a Canon camera, we’re unimpressed by the EOS R’s ergonomics. The M.Fn Bar is, in its current state, superfluous. The rear dial is too recessed, the buttons are mushy, don’t offer good feedback, and are questionably arranged on the body of the camera. Available customization options are puzzling, with great freedom in some areas and frustrating limitations in others.

From the conclusion:

In the end, it’s perhaps best to look at the EOS R as a case study for the future benefits of the RF system; all native lenses released so far are of very high quality, plus Canon offers a total of three EF lens adapters depending on your needs. But unfortunately, we find it difficult to recommend the EOS R to the broader public besides perhaps existing Canon users looking for a second, lightweight full-frame body. Because ultimately, while the EOS R is unequivocally capable of taking beautiful photos, it too often distracted us and pulled us out of the picture-taking process instead of becoming an invisible part of the process itself, as the best cameras do.
