We also like the better viewfinder, the larger selection of lenses and that the display has a higher resolution. A nice touch is the articulated display, the rather comfortable touch screen and the superior video recording. A recommendation of the EOS R is made easy by the connector for an external microphone, that the battery has more stamina and the more compact size. Finally, there's the the built-in wifi that permits remote shooting and image transfer without the need for a cable connection.
