Anxiously waiting for the Canon EOS R3 production camera I have ordered

Canon announced the revolutionary EOS R3 full frame mirrorless camera on September 14, 2021. I have placed my order for the body a few minutes after the official announcement was made, plus the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 zoom lens. Hope to take delivery by the end of November, 2021. Up to now, I have not been a fan of any mirrorless camera or RF lens. My readers know me as The Wildlife Ho-tographer. I have been using Canon equipment for over three decades and in particular, the EOS 1 model camera since 1989. 

The reason why I have waited this long is the current crop of full frame mirrorless cameras lack the battery life, ergonomics and 'zero' latency of the EVF I demand of a wildlife camera. The EOS R3 appears to have addressed all my concerns. After I have taken delivery of the EOS R3 and the RF 100-500mm lens, they will accompany me on a few real world wildlife safaris under the most demanding situations and I will write a complete review of the camera. I will have the EOS-1D X Mark III body with me as a comparison.  Keep checking back for the latest information on the EOS R3 body.
