  • Optics are more than just contrast and colors. Resolution, vignetting, distortion, (lateral and longtitudinal) chromatic abberations, bokeh, flare, sunstars, etc. This all comes into play; for one ...
  • I agree completely. I now have the RF16mm and it is so small I can take it with me anytime, anywhere. It's not my main lens, as I don't often go wider than 24mm, but when I want to, I know I can ...
  • +1. And I'd rather have the option to choose to see the DOF preview than have it always activated  before I shoot. Closing down the aperture for i.a. macro shots can result in a dark and laggy ...
  • I'd love that Sigma 85/1.4 DN to come to the RF mount, but 'waiting a bit longer' could indeed mean: never? / 3 years? / 1 year? We unfortunately don't know.
  • If 28mm is your focal length, get your hands on this one: Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 USM IS It's a really good lens!
  • Back when I was in the market for a 85mm I compared these 2 with each other and ended up with neither actually (I got the f/1.2, but that is a pure personal decision). I did feel the Canon 85/1.4 ...
  • Have you tried adding those lens correction data profiles to the camera with Canon's EOS Utility software? When you connect the camera to the computer you can use that software to add/remove lens ...
  • Replied in Yes Good Move
    Good move, if you're happy that's all that counts. I made the same decision a couple of months ago. I then had my R5 and my 5D4 and I found the 5D4 was too heavy and hefty and I wanted an R camera ...
  • Replied in Fv mode
    Yes, it also works for increasing it. Bump up the ISO and the shutterspeed becomes faster as well. 👍
  • It's very unfortunate. I also see an effect of these price hikes and the shortage of lenses on the used market. I hope the prices will go down again when the production goes up again. But I don't ...
  • Replied in Fv mode
    I was just casually reading this and I actually wrote a post with the differences explained: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/65881280 so it might be helpful to understand the differences in ...
  • Same here in the Netherlands. In December 2021 the RF 50/1.2 was €2399, from January it's gone up with €300 to €2699. I remember buying the RF 24-105L in March 2020 for €999, the year before that ...
  • True. I don't see users proactively going to a forum to post that their camera has not locked up. But if it does lock up, a user is understandably fast to post about it. I do believe there seems ...
  • Correct there are two different settings. Shutter speed range at C.Fn2 and Minimum shutter speed at ISO speed settings My previous posts were unfortunately removed. I'll try to summarize the ...
  • ? With my R5, firmware 1.5, I have set the min. shutter speed to 1/125. This setting can be found at ISO speed settings. In Av mode and ISO set to Auto, the shutter doesn't go slower than 1/125. In ...
  • Exactly because of 1) I don't use Fv mode. And I also don't use it, because I'm too used to the way my control dials on the R5 are set up in M mode. In M mode: The 'quick control dial 2' is set to ...
  • I use those exact same memory cards. CFExpress 128GB Sony Tough cards and 128GB UHS-II Kingston Canvas React+ SD cards. I have not experienced a lock up either with the R5, not with 1.5, not with ...
  • Hello Steve, I use the Godox X1T-C transmitter with 4 Godox X1R-C receivers. The flashes I have are 4 Canon speedlite 580EX IIs (coupled with CP-E4 battery packs), a Canon 270EX and a Canon 420EX. ...
  • Replied in Bwahahah
    The zoom range is terrible as well!
  • I've had the 17-40L for years, it was my first L lens. I was so proud when I bought it, used it on my 10D, 20D as my standard lens and as an UWA on my 5D. My first few weddings and events were ...
