This data represent the current state of development.
Initial reviews shows that canon eos-r AF is sub-optimal - not in pair with sony.
Initial canon statement was - We are going to release mirrorless when we can deliver ML exereance similar to DSLR.
At this stage canon and Nikon are behind sony and for sure not in pair with Canon/Nikon SLRs It is marketing push instead of development pull

Yes you can drive your Ferrari in the city. Even more you can attach your KIA wheels to spare some cash. :-)
Same comments here. Canon is far behind the competition Panasonic GH 5, even the older GH 4 is beter choise, and it offer similar senoser size to Canon FF/video crop.
The old Sony 7s II is also great option.
Yes canon is making progration, they offer more than the crappy MJPG, but they are far away from the competition. Not to mention that 5 years old smartphone can take slow motion 1080p 120..180fps using H.265/H264 codec
Yes they make progression - They discovered the articulated touchscreen. The entry level camcorders from 35 years ago had articulated flipped touchscreen. yes it was 35 years ago. well done canon
From what I read it appears that in difficult circumstances (low contrast/low light) Video AF with Canon R is very good, Nikon isn't even close, and GH4/5 requires manual focusing. IOW, for vlogging of the 3 Canon appears best currently.
No idea how Sony performs in this regard, other than that Sony appears to be only rarely used for vlogging, comparatively speaking, based on sites I visit. No idea how it performs in real life, but then, personally I am not much interested in Sony cameras and lenses.
In the end it is about what one needs and wants, and so far for me Canon and Panasonic/Olympus have worked well for me .
Kind regards, Wim
