Why? Because I plan on shooting more than just little primes in my travel kit. I found it worth the extra $400 to go for the RV.

Clearly prefer the EVF and joystick of the RV vs. the CR.

With a 20-70 mounted which is my primary travel lens there just wasn't a lot of space savings.

The better grip and two card slots is icing on the cake.


Yeah makes sense. Personal preference will always come into play. I'm sure I'll keep my RV but I'm getting the feeling already I will not be reaching for it near as much. Joystick for me is a none factor as tracking is so good I rarely use it on the RV. Never had a card failure and don't shoot professionally so not really worried there either. The 20-70 is great and is roughly the same size as my 35GM and I have determined that is about the largest I'd go in my travel set up. The 20-70 and 35GM fit nicely in my Temba 9 which is a perfect setup for travel for me. I can get the RV in there but I can fit a few more accessories with the CR. The better grip is something I will disagree with. Even if you keep the extension on the CR it is easier going in and out of bags without the center EVF in my short experience with both and I find the extension grip more comfortable than the RV body. But I get the RV attraction it's an fabulous camera and have been happy with mine since release. It will probably be my last full sized mirrorless camera.


If I didn't have a nice Fuji X kit with small primes or a Q2 I'm sure I'd have a CR or maybe even a 6700 as part of the Sony kit along with some smaller primes but for the lenses I favor in the Sony ecosystem the RV makes more sense for me.
