  • Replied in R5 or 500 PF?
    I'm late in seeing this, but the 100-500 is tack sharp throughout its range.  There was an IS/IBIS issue early on, but that was fixed with firmware and I haven't had sharpness issues since.  It's ...
  • Replied in R5 or 500 PF?
    What have you heard about the RF100-500 that made it not stellar? Other than f/7.1 possibly being an issue for some people? I haven't read many reviews on it, but in the half year I've used it, ...
  • Thanks, but I've already switched to a different store where I can get actual, brand new lenses and I'm happy with them. The lenses I was sent *may* have been perfectly fine, but when it's been in ...
  • No, B&H has not publicly stated they don't resell returns.  In fact, I'm pretty sure they have said that if a return comes back and look "as new" to them, they will resell it.  Adorama at one ...
  • B&H resells returns. Most likely another buyer returned it after damaging it and it somehow didn't get checked before it got shipped back out.  I got about 6 RF lenses in a row from B&H that were ...
  • Of course, but especially on DPR, there's a group of very dedicated Sony fans/trolls who continually spout misinformation about competing brands, with no first-hand experience, and it's tiring. I...

  • It does have adjustable priorities. If you want to use a certain aperture, use aperture priority and Auto ISO, set the minimum shutter speed to auto and it will keep it above minimum hand-holdable...

  • So if you're going spend $3900 on a new camera, you might consider saving more to buy a $10,000 camera? Yeah, thanks, but no thanks. With $10,000, I got the R5 plus most of the lenses I need.

  • Sorry, I meant A7R III. If only there was a way to compare output from the R5 and the A7R III and see how inferior the R5 is, with it's "crap" AA filter....oh...

  • So a Sony user comes into a Canon product discussion, pretending to have used the R5, claiming the IQ is inferior to the A7R II because of it's "AA crap" filter, then admonishes "Canon fanboys and...

  • @armandino
    I've never owned Sony, so I can't comment on those, but I had the D850 previous to the R5. I'm an extreme pixel peeper, and actually prefer the R5's "AA crap" output over the D850. And...

  • I don't believe for one second that you've actually tried the R5 firsthand, and especially not with RF glass. That AA filter comment reeks of someone who hasn't actually looked at the R5 output.

  • Hi Phil -- no, I actually have the touchscreen tap to focus locked out/disabled, because I don't need it and early on, I was accidentally touching the screen and focusing when I didn't want to. ...
  • I've had this issue two or three times with the R5, and I'm using Canon lenses (RF 70-200 and RF 100-500). It is very intermittent, but this last time (about 10 minutes ago, which caused me to ...
  • Please make this suggestion to Canon at their website (feedback link at top left): https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home I've sent the exact same feedback to them recently, and ...
