  • Its great quality, and so small compared to my previous 70-200 lenses on any system with no negatives that I've seen in a year and a bit of ownership. It's small enough that you can pack it in a ...
  • I use mine all the time in the rain for football shots, 0 issues so far although I'm careful to take it out of my bag and let it dry fully as soon as I'm home.
  • I used to use a 5D2 for professional work - you are going to be so impressed with the R5!! The EVF might take a little getting used to compared to the OVF but it also brings some benefits. I would ...
  • I don’t think you are missing anything - I was looking at the same (and 35 coverage), especially as we have a baby in the way. I went off piste and ended up with a Milvus 85mm f1.4 and EF to RF ...
  • The R5 is the best camera I’ve used it owned in almost every respect but having shot a few thousand pictures with the R3 a weekend or so ago I am considering buying one. it’s so fast and the high ...
  • Replied in Wow
    Just wanted to follow up - to thank you guys for the tips again and to say to anyone else that might view this WOW One thing that wasn't mentioned was setting the camera to be more responsive on ...
  • Thanks for all the information so far, looks like the AF is going to be where the biggest learnings need to take place to understand how to get most from it. As for MS vs ES I think I will need to ...
  • Created question thread R3 sports settings tips vs R5
    Hi all, I have a loan R3 coming for the weekend to test and have a couple of sports events to practice.  Does anyone have any tips on anything that should be set differently to the R5 that I am ...
  • I have the 16 and the 14-35, since I got the 14-35 I've found I've not really used the 16.  However - it is always in my bag as it's so light and the image quality is much better than the horror ...
  • I had a gap of most of a decade between EF and RF and the RF is definitely a step up for me.  Your macro comparison is not a fair one though as there is an EF 100mm that goes beyond 1:1 and this ...
  • I'm not sure on the C but the R5 will not fire a flash if you are in electronic shutter mode - maybe it's the same and you're in electronic shutter?
  • Replied in A crop body
    There's a whole bunch of "APS" sensor sizes - the Nikon D3100 is a 1.56x multiplier and most others are between 1.52 and 1.54 - the difference isn't as big as it looks at a single decimal place!
  • With most other brands I've used more recently the recipe for the optical corrections comes with the raw file so you can have them on or off - with Canon they are not - so if you want straight ...
  • I agree to a certain extent.  I have the 16mm f2.8 and find I need to run it through DPP to correct it and convert to TIFF to then bring it into capture one. I really wish that the corrections were ...
  • Replied in Sort of
    I have used my dSLR and mirrorless systems for work or fun until about 5 years ago when I stopped the work and focussed on the fun with a Fujifilm set up. The biggest change from Nikon to Canon has ...
  • That's a 1dx - they are still out of stock on the R3.  I was about to impulse buy one - I'm glad there's no stock!! Haha
  • The 100-500 is a really good lens!!  It's a much more serious carry around lens though! I really like both the 14-35 and the 70-200f4 - my favourite thing with that lens is that I can have a great ...
  • Unlike the big white primes I can use it to cover the whole pitch too, not just the far side.   It’s way more versatile than the primes! My favourite telephoto I’ve used in the past was the Nikon ...
  • Created discussion thread RF100-500mm praise
    Hi all, I haven't seen that much about this lens on the forum but wanted to send out some praise for it!! I ordered it when I ordered my R5 in early November and it finally arrived in December - I ...
