    Canon R series

    Looking for a second camera to back up the 5d mkiii and looking hard at the R series as the batteries are the same and I can use my L series glass whilst in Africa this year for several months
    Would like to purchase 4 weeks before departure and save on the duty
    Pro's and Con's please

    I'm thinking the 5D iii will end up the backup camera, the R has a lot going for it.

    I'm thinking the EOS R will drive you mad, the 5D III (and indeed any other full-size Canon body going back as far as the 20D) is much nicer to use. The longer I own the EOS R, the less I like it.
