Tried the Canon 5DSR
5

I’m currently considering different options for a macro rig at work. Unfortunately, Sony does not support macro photography with dedicated lights, so I have to go with either Canon or Nikon which have twin lights which I intend to cross polarize.

our local camera store had A Canon system I could test. I have to say I was rather shocked by how bad the camera felt: I’ve been shooting a9 for some time and and  5DSR felt enormous and I experienced hand fatigue very quickly.

This was not expected, I had the a900 for nearly ten years and enjoyed it very much indeed. I suppose I have adapted to the a9 ergonomics which I really like. It’s not perfect, but I far prefer the a9 over a gigantic SLR with rather sluggish performance to boot.

I wish mirrorless systems had better macro support
