  • Wonderful! I am green with envy at these! Bravo! Warblers are so tough! Small and flighty.
  • Very impressed! I recall how disappointing I found the old version one of the EF2x on my EF600 f/4.0L IS. I swore off all 2X converters! That was twenty years ago. Seems things have changed. Great ...
  • Replied in OVF vs EVF
    Whenever any new tech comes to the market, there will inevitably be those complaining about it and hammering at what they perceive to be its weaknesses whilst ignoring its strengths. It's just ...
  • I love the lens! Been holding back on the  RF1.4X. It's expensive and I have no other lens on which it would be useful. But maybe I'll weaken. IMO 3 things make this lens . . . 1/ Mirrorless ...
  • Do not allow the MFD to dominate your thinking. I use the RF800 with a 35mm extension tube. This allows focus with the RF 800 between about 15 feet and 80 feet. At that distance the frame is ...
  • Personally, I do not understand the objections to larger file sizes. It's one thing if you're a pro shooting thousands of frames for, say, a wedding. It hearkens back to the days when EOS 1D owners ...
  • Replied in CFExpress card
    Answer is a simple, "No! You do not." I have not bought one yet and am in no rush to do so. If you feel the need to shoot 8K video at low compression, you do. Likewise if you need the backup. OTRW, ...
  • Replied in Used R5
    Canadian here. Bought my R5 from a Toronto dealer. It also carries that same "Japan Only" sticker.
  • Replied in R5 EVF
    No idea that I'm here to "give advice" as Julie asks, but . . . Been staring through OVFs for better than 50 years! That said, even with the lowly EOS R, I immediately saw only advantages and no ...
  • As for ECF, let us not forget . . . The reason it was dropped is not hard to fathom. It just didn't work for too many people. I was one of those people. IIRC, I could not even get it to calibrate ...
  • Nothing to do with the tube. Depends on how much of the frame is being filled by the subject, in my case birds. So, a duck at 25 feet, without the tube,  can readily have its eye outside of the ...
  • Replied in 24-240
    Christopher Frost has a nice review on the RF24-240 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLk7GsbPye0
  • Mine has not been knocked about and I have not mounted/dismounted it often. So not much to say about build quality. I received mine in early Sept., IIRC. Never forget the real beauty of this lens! ...
  • I am so pleased with the RF24-105, I am selling my old EF16-35 f/2.8. Just don't need the 16mm as I once did on crop bodies. The RF24-105 is sort of a "no brainer."
  • Mine too. So, "normal," AFAIAC. My R too as well as the R5.
  • I had been using a Tough card in my EOR R. I recall it being a VERY tight fit the first few insertions. When I got the R5, and used the same card, it went in smoothly with no more friction than ...
  • Many thanks for your detailed reply, Marco. I have bought 4 Canon converters. The EF1.4x (version I) and EF2x (version I) in 2000. Both were replaced with versions II a year or so later. I still ...
  • Almost 20 years ago I tried Canon's EF1.4 and EF2x extenders on the mark 1 version of the Canon EF600 f/4.0L IS. I was happy enough with the 1.4. I was NEVER happy with any shot I ever took with ...
  • LOL!. . . some are complaining the Canon OEM adapter is too loose? And the JJC is too tight? I'll admit the JJC is mighty snug. But it lives permanently on my Sigma 14mm f/1.8 so the snug fit is ...
  • Sure there are. I have the JJC EF-RF adapter. Better than the OEM in that it has an integral, but removable tripod foot. No control ring though. Link: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07WXRPRDM/re ...
