    Canon lenses AF quickly with the Canon mirrorless M5 and M50, no reason why the EOS R won't be the same
    Sigma and Tamron lenses almost as good

    Good to know! I do think that Dual-Pixel AF is a fantastic approach for mirrorless autofocus.

    Canon 28-70mm f2 R Review: Greatest Zoom EVER (for Canon EOS R)

    Published on Oct 7, 2018

    The Canon 28-70 f/2 R is a full stop faster than the standard 24-70 f/2.8 that many pros use, and that's a HUGE deal. That reduces noise by a full stop in low-light situations. It blurs the background more than has ever been possible. There's a cost, though: size, and, well, cost. It's $3,000. I compare it to the Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L II and the Canon EOS R 24-105 f/4.

    Steve Huff also has a webpage with the same theme: Canon EOS-R is HERE. Nineteen Things I Like. Five I Don’t. I encourage everyone to read his thoughts there.

    After his post he answers questions. One response struck me as pretty strong (Steve currently has a Sony a7 III) (Emphasis mine):

    "The A7III has now been surpassed for me by the EOS R. The Canon has better IQ in all areas for photos. Better color, sharper and more depth to the images, and low light is about the same but the Canon remains sharper and has more pop. The color of the EOS R is a stunner right out of the camera and for me, in body IS is not a requirement, not at all. For 1080 video the EOS R is fantastic and offers that same color quality as the stills.

    So I have all of these cameras and enjoy them all for what they offer. 1dxII for most video, Leica SL for M lenses, X1D for when I want the Medium Format vibe. I will probably drop the Sony and Olympus soon as I prefer the EOS R in every way over them.

    I much prefer the Canon colors, own a few Canon lenses now (four L lenses), prefer the Canon ergonomics and menu, and really love the new Canon lenses that are the heart of the system. I know Canon will release a more pro level body eventually (1dx style but smaller) but I see the future in their lenses with are superb."

    a "fantastic stunner" but I'll wait

    Normally, with a new lens with special qualities vs its older versions I would put that lens on its own thread, but this lens will only fit one camera, the EOS R, and this lens will never work on an older Canon camera.

    I really hate the bluish-tinted blacks in this video, but he used a Panasonic GH5 to film the review.
    The segments where he uses the EOS R and shows the video output from that body "straight out of camera" are really, really nice!
