It feels mostly the same as I am staying in the Canon line. I of course only used them for hobby and traveling so I never put my 80D through any real rigorous duties. And I haven't been able to travel to use my R6 in the same way. I am already feeling the difference in battery life though. Definitely will carry a second battery with me when traveling. The 80D would have half battery at the end of the day.

And yikes the difference in price. I got my 80D grey market new for $700 and my 17-55 2.8 used for $550.

And before I go on a another trip later I'm probably going to pick up a 24-105 f/4L

Are you using all RF lenses or adapting the EFs?
I notice that used EF lenses can be had for less usually, but the new RF are slightly better optically (maybe) and less bulky.
