  • I opted for the R7 as a replacement for a TC. I had been shooting birds with my R5 and and adapted EF 100-400 II w/1.4 TC. Though it has worked for me, it sometimes gets difficult to accept the ...
  • You can check with Canon's DPP software. There is an option to show the focus point. It's not totally accurate but it does give you the focus box on where the focus point was when the picture was ...
  • You can take it into a local shop and see if they'd put it on one of their R cameras to test for you. I know mine would do that for me. I'd bring one of your lenses with you as well.
  • It is confirmed, repeatedly, that the EF-R adapters work on an R7. Could be a faulty adapter that isn't passing the information to the body. Check the contacts to make sure they are intact and ...
  • There are several older threads where the shutter shock has been reported and debated in great length. There is an issue with handheld particularly at slower shutter speeds. The results vary ...
  • I haven't considered the ramifications of enabling cleaning on shutdown. Both my R5 and R7 are set to clean on power on/off. I've had my R5 for almost 2 years.
  • My default is electronic first shutter and I have the DOF button to toggle silent mode on/off which puts the camera into electronic shutter mode. I just tested on my R7 and the shield is down ...
  • Yeah, AF for insects in flight is challenging with the 180. I’ve got a consistently good hit rate with my 100mm L. I have also used my EF 100-400 II with and without the 1.4x III with pretty good ...
  • I had been looking for 2 years for a 180mm and finally found a good used one at a local shop. I also have the EF 100mm 2.8 L. The image quality is a bit better on the 180 but the 100 is easier to ...
  • I have an EF 100mm L Macro that I use with the EF/RF adapter. A used one is about $400-500 less than a new RF 100 assuming you already have an adapter. I know that Laowa makes an RF version of ...
  • I found that you can double tap the image on the screen and it will magnify to your default setting.
  • I just picked up the Explorer V2 35. The straps are nice and wide and the waist belt actually helps. For testing, I loaded it up with the R5/R7, EF 100mm L, EF 16-35 f/4, EF 24-105 f/4, EF 100-400 ...
  • It does but I'm being a nice dad and handing it down to my son. He has his 90D but he doesn't always take the bulk with him. I can't have all the toys.
  • Replied in R7 + RF 800
    Only you can decide what would be best for your needs. I did mention in another thread that if I had to choose only one, I would go with the R5 for my needs. I like landscape, macro, birding, my ...
  • Replied in R7 + RF 800
    I'm basing my impressions of the 2x on one of the many forum posts regarding TCs. There are also quite a few reviewers that have done direct comparisons using the 1.4 and 2. I don't have the ...
  • I appreciate that 'practical' evaluation. It does sound like I'm better waiting for the new lens. I checked with my local shop the other day and they are confident in me getting the lens when it ...
  • Yeah, there is. I opted for the lower cost prime since I have wide and ultra-wide EF glass. I'm also thinking that the f/1.8 will work for more situations particularly with the noise at lower ISO ...
  • I think all this talk is confirmation about Canon shooters being on the 'older' end of the demographic. I didn't have all these 'issues' shooting back when I was younger. Of course back then, I ...
  • I was lucky since the pre-order list for my local camera shop was long and the number of bodies received was low. They sold out the first day and are not sure when the rest of their pre-orders ...
  • Created discussion thread Everyday RF lens
    I'm on the waiting list for the upcoming RF 24mm to put on my R7. The intent is that it will be my 'tourist' camera  that is light and doesn't take up a lot of space. That gives me a 38mm. I was ...
