"New" 5r
May 7, 2013

My 5r arrived today. It's a used unit that B&H designated a "9." I'm not sure why; it's the photographic equivalent of Bo Derrick. (Some of you will remember). I don't see any signs of use. The packaging seems to be original and even the LCD had its cellophane cover. I bought the "semihard" protective cover and I'm good to go.

Since I have a C3, the r was easy to set up. Even downloading a couple of apps was painless.

The r does many things better than the C3 which is itself a great camera. I do like the form factor of the C3, however; I wouldn't mind having an r in a C3 body. Otoh, the r's grip is nice.

Next will come the EVF but for the time being, I'll enjoy the new toy, courtesy of Sony and B&H.
