  • @op is your lens Mark I or Mark II and is it with IS?  I have the original mark I with IS and it isn't the fastest shooting lens. AF and IS both contribute to that. I can't speak to the Mark II ...
  • I use the Connect App often to transfer photos to my phone. Works great. Easy to connect and use.
  • Replied in EOS R
    What makes you say that? We just got 1.7 and Canon has said that the R will continue to be a marketed camera for the next year. They'll need to continue to provide firmware updates for new lenses ...
  • Thank you for posting photos!  Love the 135L. It's the lens I use least, but when I do, it always puts a smile on my face. A couple with it showing fast moving subject and eye focus prowess of the ...
  • You already have an impressive set of lenses. What lens would you put the money into?  In general I am in a similar boat and am planning on keeping the R and upgrading my EF lenses to RF natives. ...
  • Bodies come and go, but a great lens will give you many many years of service.  I haven't tried the RF 85 on my R, but have used the EF version and it is a magical lens. The images the EF version ...
  • Replied in M. Fn bar
    Nice!  Looking forward to trying that out.
  • The sensor is not what gets hot. It’s the digic processor performing processing on video streams. The processor can desolder if overheated. Canon has built protection via software to shut the ...
  • What are you shooting now? Is depth field important? I have a EF 24-105 and when I got my R, I forgo the RF version of that lens because I rarely use the EF version any more. Since getting a 35L ...
  • To quote Fran Tarkenton - That's Incredible.   That really is amazing to see especially the turtle. I hold out faint hope that Canon would do a firmware update in the future for EOS R that brings ...
  • Yes it will continue to track with the shutter halfway down if you are in Servo mode vs One-shot AF mode.  This is similar to previous Canon cameras even without Eye AF. By default the camera will ...
  • I think for #1 you are thinking about depth of field vs the AF system.  The AF system will focus on a single plane (the eye), but when factoring aperture, optically you can get depth of field to ...
  • Genuinely curious, for the specs it has, what does digic 8 not do that holds up the mirrorless performance? Are you talking video performance or still?
  • Obviously you can’t make an R into a 45mp 8K shooter with a firmware update. But there’s a lot of nice usability enhancements in the R5 announcement that Canon could bring to the R. The video ...
  • I have to say the R5 is a super exciting tour de force body and I fully admit the ergonomics are better than my R. But I was fortunate to buy an R after Christmas 2019 and paid 1999 CAD with the ...
  • You don't miss much do you?  That flap is the problem.  We don't know what it is - neither do the British. :-) I have been wondering that too ever since the pics of the R5 came out.
  • 300/2.8 is a magic lens! Nice shots!
