    What? You mean Nikon isn't the only manufacturer that has a hard time meeting demand upon a new product release?

    Now that you mention it, I'm reminded that the individual I know who has both the R5 and R6 has a sponsor in the retail camera business, and has always been able to get new gear very early...

    Your point about prime lens use in wildlife photography is spot on; for several reasons. So many iconic wildlife photos were taken with prime glass, and using shoes for zoom!

    A couple comments mentioned "blackout" on the EVF. I just watched Dustin Abbots review and when you use 120 refresh rate, he says no blackout on the EOS R5.
