You are entitled to your opinion, but to say the R8 is 15 years behind
other cameras is balderdash. An anti-R bias. There is only one thing it
lacks, technologically, besides the motor, and that's AF. And AF that
functions on a professional level is more like 4 years old beginning with
the EOS1n. AF before that was not up to Pro standards, including the F4.
