Canon EOS R Mirrorless Full-Frame: Can it succeed against Nikon Z6, Panasonic GH5, Sony A7 III?

UPDATE 09.16.2018: My pre-order is in. Canon EOS R it is. I'm not convinced it will replace the GH5 as our standard bearer for Stark Insider videos, but that 30MP sensor (5D Mark IV) with DPAF in a compact body is pretty tantalizing. Plus, it's one thing to actually...
