  • Replied in EOS R3 due?
    Sony doesn't have CPS, and that's why Canon still dominates this space.  As far as the other things go, I guess we'll see.  Since most every reviewer has commented that the R5 matches Sony A1 on ...
  • Replied in EOS R3 due?
    Well, they hit more than they miss.  If you watched the event on the 29th, it sure looked like it was geared toward a new sports camera, but at the end Canon ended the presentation early.  I ...
  • Replied in EOS R3 due?
    The answer to your question is... it depends.  Canon has always placed products between it's competitors, with the exception of the 1 series.  Is the R3 an A1 Killer?  Probably not.  It likely ...
  • Eye AF is great, but not magic.  The bird in this photo is too small in the frame.  You have a gray bird in a gray tree that takes up a tiny portion of the frame.  If the bird had filled up lets ...
  • Size wise you're correct... it's close.  But it's just not the same.  I have grips on my R5 and R6 and they're great for what they are but integrated grips are just better.  I miss them from my ...
  • That's exactly what I plan to do.  R6 will be going up for sale as soon as the official announcement is made.   R5 will become the backup to the R3 ... unless they do something stupid like make it ...
  • I agree.  Considering the price difference and better AF performance the R5 is the clear winner here.  I'm having enough trouble culling through 20fps.  With all that said, I can't wait to see ...
  • I have both.  The R6 is cleaner out of the camera than the R5.  There are some who say that if you downsample the R5 files it's about the same at high ISO, but that feels like more work.  Also, ...
  • When you are focusing your camera lens is wide open.  As soon as you activate the shutter the lens stops down to your intended aperture.  This is so maximum light is available to focus.  Use the ...
  • What I'd like to see is a grip that will use LP-E19 batteries from the 1DX III.  I miss those big batteries from my 1DX II.  Nikon does this and it is fantastic.  Might even give the big whites ...
  • Sure it is... you just have to really want it.  Just need a setup that allows you to block the wind (so long as it's not coming straight at you and it doesn't appear to be doing that in these ...
  • It seems that this is a problem with all animals of that type.  I had a hard time with eye AF on Elk.  It is clear that animals with this shape head (horses, deer, elk, etc...) haven't been added ...
  • The big whites are heavy, but they're worth it!  Make sure you have a steady tripod with a good Gimbal head
  • After seeing this thread I immediately bought covers for my R5 and R6. May have been a freak thing but why take a chance. Found these on Amazon. You get 4 for $8.00 and they fit great https://www.a ...
  • For wildlife I find myself mostly using my 600 f4 II along with the 1.4 and 2x (both v3) EF Teleconverters.  For portraits I mostly use the Sigma 85 1.4 ART or the Canon 135 f2 L.  I have also had ...
  • Sorry, missed the 14-35 F4L
  • I think I saw that Sigma was planning on announcing RF lenses in Q1 of next year.  I'm hoping for a lot from them.  My 85 1.4 and 14-24 f2.8 ART lenses are phenomenal... even on the R6 adapted.
  • I'm pretty sure the TS in front of the lens means "Tilt/Shift".  It's not going to be cheap.  The current wide TS lens in the EF line is 17mm and runs around $2100.00.  This is a specialty lens.  ...
  • I recently started moving from 1 Series bodies to mirrorless.  I sold my 1DX Mark II and 1DX to buy an R5 and R6.  The intention was to replace my 1DX II with the R5, but I'm still waiting for one ...
