  • I have to agree with Karl about RF 24-240. I picked up one the first week they came out for vacation and I think its an awesome lens. If I could only have one lens the 24-240 would be it. Now there ...
  • I  would think NOT.  There is a protocol between the Camera and the power unit.  My R6 can be very fussy about it,  some of my USB C power bricks will not work with the R6. I would NEVER connect a ...
  • I think your right on the "encourage" statement.  I ordered my R on the day they started taking pre-orders at the photo store I use.  When I got the call my camera was in, I rushed down to pick it ...
  • Replied in R5 or R6?
    Yea I know and that's why I started with "For me it was easy", meaning it may not be for others :)
  • Replied in R5 or R6?
    For me it was easy, I went with the R6 for one simple reason, I DONT crop.  I do my framing with the camera/zoom. I average about 2-3 crops a year.  The difference in price paid for most of my RF ...
  • I think you will have to upgrade your ver 5 because the latest version is 10.1.1.  Also you have to decide between the NEW Light Room and the older style, like you have that is now called  Light ...
  • I did a few pics with it at first but not worth the extra work.
  • Everyone should know what happened for one very good reason

    "Those who don't know the past are doomed to repeat it"

  • You could do what I do and SAVE for the lens/body over a year of so :)
  • Why not the R or R6 ?
  • I guess you could say I cheated at this,  I kept my R.  So now I have both :)   I really liked my R but for sports it was not the best.  My son in law does auto cross and the R was not up for the ...
  • "It actually costs more than I paid (new) for my EF 100-400 L mk2" Where can you get the 100-400 L mk2 for less then  $1600 ?  Amazon price on the EF 100-400 mk 2 is $2400.  You must be thinking of ...
  • Created user review thread My take on the RF 70-200 F4
    This lens is awesome, its a pleasure to use. There are two small details I don't care for. #1 you cant use it with an extender, none made at this time, same for the 2.8 version. #2 the hood is a ...
  • Yea Chunk very nice pics, you should be proud of them :) Damn you guys are making me feel old, my first camera was a Canon FT,  1968 18 years old and I still love Canon :)
  • I have both the R and R6. The R from the day it was released and the R6 for about a month or 2. What I can say is the focus on the R6 is much better and the R does have a small bit higher resolution. ...
  • Rent the R and/or R6 for a day and find out.
  • I do get rattle noise coming from my RF 70-200 f4.  I have read a few post saying the new RF lens's will rattle and Canon says don't worry.  My RF 24-105 f4 L does the same along with my EF 70-300 ...
  • I had the 7DII back before the R.  I used the 7DII for Auto Cross and it did a good job.  When the R came out I sold the 7DII to get the R.  That was a huge mistake, there was no way the R could ...
  • Replied in New Camera
    I would do what most of the others have said and go for the Rp and RF 24-240. I use one for general vacation type photos and its awesome for that. Yes there are some naysayers about this lens, but ...
  • Replied in Although ...
    I think the difference between us is I like over lapping range.  I found when I was shooting events it saved me a few lens changes.  It seemed like every time I needed to change a lens the perfect ...
