If not what would interest you - what do you wish they had included in these two  new cameras?Canon 5DS RCanon 5DSMore About the Canon 5DS and 5DS ROne my of my viewers Got his hand on the 5DSR at this weekend's UK Photo show and had this to shareCanon 5DS R - Scott Fautley"As there were a lot of consumers there, the areas surrounding the 750D/760D were busy, but the 5DS and 5DSR were relatively clear. I got my hands on the 5DSR.The sides were sealed up to ensure nobody snuck a card in.One Canon rep made of point of telling me it’s a totally new body, since I actually own a 5D Mk3 (and had one in my hand) you’d think he’d know a bit better. It’s IDENTICAL. The menus, the grip, the dials – all the same. Any re-design is internal.This isn’t a bad thing, but don’t expect this to feel like a new camera. It is a 5D Mark 3 with a higher resolution sensor. In terms of operating speed, it felt about the same, I suppose that means it’s a bit quicker as it’s handling those huge 50mp files."I will have a full write from Scott's visit to the UK Photo show soon.Further proof that it is identical in all external design - a waterproof housing for the 5D Mark III is listed as also working for the %DS and 5DS R.Waterproof housing for the 5DS and 5DS R
