I am not so sure I want an IBIS sensor, either.  Cleaning them is not as straight forward as a conventional sensor.  The IBIS mechanism adds $300 to $400 hundred to the cost of a replacement sensor.  Sony has been waging a price war to corner the mirrorless market.


Perhaps not a big difference between 20MP and 24/26, but the R5 will likely be in the 40MP to 45MP range, and you will see the difference there, if not with the R6. While Canon hasn't disclosed the exact specs of the R6's sensor resolution, we know it will be capable of 8K video capture, suggesting a sensor in the 40+ range. We shall see. And I for one definitely want the IBIS, despite the cleaning issue. 

 

As for the best burger on the planet, that award must go to Hodad's, the original location in Ocean Beach, CA, a part of the San Diego scene. Of course, every town of any size has a place that serves "the world's greatest hamburger"! 

 


You do realize that one hidden cost associated with using high MP cameras is that you will likely need more storage, and a more powerful computer to do any type of image processing.  

 

High MP images have their niche for professinal users.  But, for the average consumer hobbyist having a high MP camera is about as useful as a trophy wife.  Expensive to buy, and more expensive to keep around.

 

I am not trying to discourage you from buying one.  Just be aware that upgrading to a high MP camera will likely necessitate a significant upgrade in your PC hardware, too, including your monitor(s).

 

[EDIT]. Louis Lunch is in New Haven, CT.  They invented the hamburger, and still use the same original recipe, fresh beef.

Yes, I am aware of the larger file sizes that high MP cameras produce. The Canon R5 would have a CFExpress slot in addition to supporting UHS-II. I would be more concerned with file sizes if the newer, higher MP cameras were stil relying on slower standard SD cards, which will likely go the way of the floppy disk.

Please don't add hamburgers to the subjects that we argue about!

 

In-N-Out all the way. 8^)
