R5 first impressions
12

Trying to learn the ropes with this beauty.  I shoot Sony 7R4, but I had a couple of canon EF F4 lens that I use and love.  Got my R5 this past Saturday and been playing with settings and menus.  It's a solid camera, the shutter sound is a whisper, my 50's eyes could not tell a difference in the viewfinder compared to the Sony. Battery was rapidly dwindling just taking pictures and got to 50% in a couple of hours (without transmitting to my phone, took 50-70 pic).  The 24-70 F2.8 is a gorgeous lens and really creamy in the bokeh. Love the touch screen (absent in the Sony), disappointing that the quick menu button can not be modified ?!. Autofocus is a breeze. I need to play a lot more with it and find the nooks a crannies. Some samples are in order, had to use adobe DNG to convert and mostly run of the mill stuff.

Congratulations Canon, its a Joy of a camera.
