  • Very easy to do. I only have EF lenses and just leave the adapter on the body the whole time.
  • I still use my 7D Mark II for sports but other than that, solely using the R. I still have the 5D Mark II though but it's getting lonely just staying in the bag all the time.
  • TL/DR - no, go with a different focal length that doesn't overlap. I wouldn't have both because there's not as much utility to having that much overlap. I use the 24-70L Ii with control ring ...
  • EF lenses are sharper on with the adaptor since focusing is on the sensor and no microadjustment is necessary. It's nice to have shots at f/1.4 be consistently in focus The tracking works fine for ...
  • Let me start off by saying that if I returned it, I would've been clear that I used it and either wasn't satisfied or that it was defective in some way (if it actually was). If that was the case, ...
  • I'm okay with the adapter and legacy glass for now. I'm not looking to replace all my lenses immediately. Since the adapter causes no degradation in image quality, and actually improves ...
  • Created discussion thread Too late to send the R back
    I picked up an EOS R in early December on Amazon so the return period was longer due to Christmas. Return period expired on January 31 so I guess now I'm "stuck" with the R. Good thing I actually ...
  • I'm not planning on buying any EF lenses, at least in the short-term anyway. Now if there's a lens I needed at it was only available in EF mount and no roadmap on when/if it would be available in ...
  • Not just weight: IS, no-worry auto focus, and standard filter size are all advantages of the Canon.
  • The setting for image review is for both the EVF and rear screen so if you turn it off, it's off on both. You don't have to wait 2 seconds to take another shot. If you half press the shutter it'll ...
  • Replied in 70D to R. Help
    35mm on crop is 56mm equivalent on full frame so a 50 is going to be a touch wider. I suspect the 50 probably has a longer minimum focus distance that's longer than the 18-35 so you can't get as ...
  • I'm only own legacy EF glass right now but have used the RF 24-105 as well. Adapted EF lenses work even better on the R than on older bodies thanks to AF being done on the sensor. And you can ...
  • What do they go for in Australia? The basic adapter in the US that's wouldn't be enough of a savings for me vs the OEM.
  • Image quality is very similar to the 5D IV. The main improvement will be with AF accuracy. The R makes all your EF lenses better and you get much wider AF coverage. You lose some speed with the R ...
  • Replied in Thank you
    Do you have the high speed display set to on? Fotoriffic If you can't be an athlete, be an athletic supporter.
  • Maybe nuts but not Canon's fault. The DNG converter works well if you don't want to upgrade your windows
  • IF you go to the AF menu, 1st tab under "touch & drag AF settings" you can disable the touch and drag. then if she has the camera to her face the touch screen is disabled to change AF points. ...
  • I think the grip is fine. I'm a big guy with large hands and have no issues with how it feels in my hand. I think it balances well with my 70-200 f/2.8 + the EF/R adaptor. Maybe for a much larger ...
  • I use back button focus on all my cameras, including the R. No difference in AF functionality or precision by using the back button vs the shutter button. It works with eye-AF, single shot, servo, ...
  • My current favorite is my 85 f/1.4L. I can't get enough of it for people/portraits.
