  • Replied in R7's buffer
    105 c-raw shots with a 'slow' card sounds pretty good, that's a 7 seconds burst.....more than I need, I might save some money and keep my UHS I cards. Edit: Just did a test with a 300mb card and an ...
  • Yes you are right. the Rf 24-240 is an ok cheap all rounder lens but not comparable to L lenses, especially fantastic ones such as the EF100-400ii. Anything over 100mm and especially over 200mm is ...
  • People always talk about bad copies, I think it is a myth from the past and often used as an excuse for poor technique. Oh my shot is blurry I must have a bad copy..... The RF242-40 is an ok lens ...
  • Thank you Colin Yes my planned setup will R7 with the EF100-400 and the R6 with my 24-105 most of the time. I also have a 1.4 extender if needed. I was thinking of getting a RF 800 when reach is ...
  • I haven't found the ultimate setup yet but I am sure someone will post a video on this shortly. At the moment AF ON is normal focus and the * is set to eye tracking. In the R6 there was a quicker ...
  • Thank you for the suggestion I had a tamron 150-600 before and borrowed the sigma version for a while, I hated both of them. The AF was awful on both and they weren't nearly as sharp as the canon ...
  • It is also 600 euros closer to happiness....and we all know happiness is priceless 😀
  • I have both cameras, the AF system is excellent on both so the question for you is how much you want to spend because there is a significant price difference between the two bodies. If you buy the ...
  • Thank you! Yes I do have a 24-105 f4.  I also have the RF24-240 but it is a pretty awful lens so I won't use it. I am thinking R7+ 100-400 and R6 with 24-105 or 800 depending on what's needed. I am ...
  • Yes I thought about this but selling lenses is always such a pain in the b*tt, you end up almost giving it away for nothing. I will eventually buy the RF100-500 but it is 3 times the price of the ...
  • Thank you this is very helpful. It sounds that it might be better to have the RF800 setup on the R6 as a 2nd camera and use the 100-400 on the R7 for most closer/moving things......or save my money ...
  • Yes my brother in law is a park ranger / vet so he will take us to the right places. But I remember in our last trip a long lens would have been handy, so really considering the RF800 as a back up ...
  • Mostly Kruger, I have family there
  • Thanks I am very tempted, it could work really well with the R6 too.
  • So you are going to give up on a great camera because you in theory don't like the layout of the buttons? amazing... The layout is different, yes. Is it usable and actually good? yes it is, and how ...
  • Created discussion thread R7 and RF 800 f11
    Anyone has used the R7 with the RF800 f11 lens? is it useable at all? I am shooting with an adapted EF 100-400mkII and a 1.4iii converter when I need it. I am going to South Africa in September for ...
  • Not behind but certainly not ahead. I think they are pretty much the same. I got the opportunity to get some low iso shots yesterday with whales and they are very very clean and crisp, just like ...
  • I have both the R7 and 90D, and also the R6. I got the R7 to replace my 90D as I wasn't using it anymore. Having the R6 made using the 90D frustrating due to the AF systems being miles apart. The ...
  • The buffer is plenty. If you missed moments with that buffer then you need to review your timing technique ..or shoot videos 😀
  • I would have preferred it on the left but it is on the right.... and having used the camera it is actually ok, I find the new layout perfectly acceptable to use. I actually find the placement of ...
