Pros: Quality files.. light.. Good simplicity of the menu.. Lots of features. EF/R Adapter .. really good autofocus.. Very responsive touch screen, like a high-quality smartphone. it also has the "focus stacking in camera" (final result only in jpg but saves the single raw shots if you want to deal with the pc later) and the Preburst in Raw and this is no small thing.. In addition, there is the dual pixel raw which, combined with the crop of the sensor to bring the typical image closer to an APSC, gives you a file of almost 30MB but usable only with slow shutter speeds

Cons: Leaving aside the very hard cover of the viewfinder.. battery life.. the feeling of fragility.. the awkward position of some buttons and the aperture ring, the impossibility of storing the continuous raw shooting and the preburst, both in M/AV/TV/FV and in the personal settings C1 and C2, (in fact when you turn off the camera or switch to another mode, you deactivate the function and you have to go back to the menu to reactivate it ..) or the slow buffer.. : the thing that I consider most negative is the high and fast overheating of the machine .. and the warranty extension was not made for the R8, so 2 years and then hope...

Opinion: After you get the hang of the menu.. to have customized it in the best possible way to be able to use it quickly (and it can be done with the possibility of customizing the trio of rear buttons and the 4 of the pad) The photographic result is remarkable. The pre-timer is effective and does not distort the images, and the burst speed is great. It doesn't have stabilization but this was known and the controls are not very comfortable. For example, the autofocus lock button is awkward and the aperture ring is very awkward, but I guess you'll get used to it, for now I haven't been able to. The resistance to high iso is good although I expected more.. With long lenses such as telephoto lenses it needs the Battery grip that Canon has not provided, because putting the SD card where the battery is, you would have to remove it to change the card. And so also the contacts are different from any other EOS SLR .. And this has also limited the third-party battery grip that exists but which only has the shutter button and to make it work it must be connected to the camera by a cable between remote control connection and battery grip .. stuff from the 70s.. and you have the advantage of the 2 batteries since with one you have a really low autonomy and if you use fluid viewfinder, focus preview, screen etc etc it becomes really short.. As already said, the photographic results are excellent, the focus is a huge leap in quality compared to for example to an eos 5 mark 3 and the pre-shooting when it works is remarkable and this must be emphasized ... Unfortunately (there is always a unfortunately and here there are more than one.. ) has a not insignificant limitation and a problem in my opinion immense.. The first is the write speed on the SD card which even with a 300mb/s Sony touhg leaves you with the machine unusable for well over 10 seconds after each burst of about 2 seconds. So this is something that needs to be evaluated. While the second one for which I contacted canon who replied that they sell a lot of them.. So according to that principle, the problem for them doesn't exist. (but if it doesn't exist, why isn't there an extended warranty.. ?! ) is that the R8 overheats like hell in no time and freezes the camera. And then it becomes a fight between turn off, wait, turn on and shoot, turn off, wait, turn on and shoot. Day with 23/24 degrees at 4 p.m. after an hour two of the 4 red bars of the thermometer were on and the camera locked the image in the viewfinder and no longer shot .. And under the screen the plastic was very hot. So I had to turn off the car and wait 10 minutes, then the 2 red bars disappeared. While the white ones were still lit, I could use it for another 10 minutes. and the temperature rose again. then after about 1 hour and 30 minutes of use the battery ran out and I suspended the session. RCE from whom I got it new told me to describe the problem in an email that I heard from Canon, because according to them it could or may not be normal. While Canon personally heard from you I have already told you what he replied.. The problem addressed in the topic which is entitled "canon eos R8 Overheats" suggests that such a powerful processor in such a small body is inevitable that it will overheat and if you use the focus to search for the subject or the pre-timer (as for example in birdlife) the thing gets exponentially worse. Rce confirmed the idea I had and thanked him for explaining the problem to him. (I couldn't not have done it.. since I was thinking of replacing it.. but the R6 mk2 costs too much and it is not said that it does not have the same problem.. you will have to be well informed by those who have owned this machine for a long time to make birdlife and especially by those who use the pre-timer frequently..)

Pros: Lightness, ergonomics (for me), MAF speed, fantastic sensor, high ISO performance

Cons: Nothing if you know what you're buying. Lack of IBIS when compared to other MLs

Opinion: Bought to replace the R7 with which it has been love-hate since day one. I've had R6, 5D IV, 7D, 7D 2, 6D, in short, I've tried quite a few. As soon as you know, I knew I did well, the MAF is very fast, it recognizes people and animals even with their backs turned, the quality of the photos is exceptional with a tightness at ISO better than any camera before. Used on Saturday during an artistic gymnastics training, in combination with the 70-200 2.8 II with adapter, very little light.... never missed a shot, bursts all in focus, photos up to ISO 12800 without the slightest noise. For me, 6 fps (with mechanical curtain) is more than enough. Rated 10

Pros: High ISO hold, portability, autofocus

Cons: Battery

Opinion: It is a powerful camera, very powerful in a small body. If you buy consciously (just read the technical characteristics, dimensions and what it offers in general) you can not put cons. Lightning fast autofocus, does not miss a shot Excellent high iso yield, sensor of the r6 ii. Perfect camera body size for discreet or travel photography. The battery is not a strong point actually.... But you can overcome this with a battery grip not original.

Pros: Autofocus, light weight

Cons: The battery life is criticized. I've only taken about a hundred shots and I still can't verify

Opinion: Bought as a replacement for a Canon 70D that is no longer repairable. The transition from DSLR to mirrorless was quite tough, but with practice and time everything can be overcome. I immediately appreciated the lightness and the autofocus (it has the same sensor and the types of maf as the more advanced and expensive Canon R6 Mark 2), even if it is not easy to extricate yourself from the countless types of focus (eyes, face, animals, etc.). Tested for a shooting in an off-road off-road event with ferrule adapter and EF 70-200 f4 and amazed me for the speed and precision, perfect photos and practically do not require post production, For the moment the evaluation is absolutely positive waiting for further tests. Update: I shot at a dance event in a theater with the 70-200 f4. Set shutter priority to 1/250 f4 and auto iso. The photos are visible in my gallery. Although the iso has gone up (even a lot), the photos are perfect and with no noise. I only found a slight overheating, but I think in this context it is normal. I confirm the great qualities of the machine that I have written before. The battery behaved admirably (650 photos consumed 3 bars)

Pros: good ISO hold, lightweight, questionable FPS, excellent focus and responsive.

Cons: battery, short lasts, about 340 photos

Opinion: As soon as I turned it on I found the handle a bit low, even if I have small hands. Tried to take some shots with digital shutter. Unlike other Canon R's, I didn't notice the distortion of fast-moving images. Coupled with the EF-300 F4 L IS it is very precise, even with EF 1.4 III multiplier. Now I have to set and I will post some shots.
