whatafather: To be honest the Bokeh looks ugly

It does but for another $14,000 that can be corrected.

muljao: I can't see the point of buying such a slow lens. It just doesn't make any sense to me. Others obviously will have different ideas on this but......

Perhaps not all have $14,000 to spend on an F4 lens and will be very happy to have some fun with an affordable one? Hey kids. You will have to do without for a few years because dad needs a faster lens. A very smart move by Canon. They will make more money from selling thousands of affordable lenses than a few hundred than can afford the big whites, which will eventually come in the RF mount.

nidrig: Now Canon, just after Garmin was also highjacked. It's been said Garmin paid 10million USD to retrieve (hopefully) their data.
As an IT engineer, I can only feel their pain. Half of our work now is to prevent such scenario and be prepared when it happens.
It's beyond my understanding why would anyone use such methods to get money; it damages companies sometimes beyond repair and then what? there are millions people working hard in these companies, the hackers don't steal from a name or something abstract, they are actually stealing millions of employees's hard work.

Encourage and support the western allies to unite instead of what the clown and grifter (including family and friends) who is the leader of the free world is doing?

Remember that scam where you got a call about your Windows having problems. I'd lead them on for a while and then say, "I don't have any windows, I only have doors". Click :) I loved ticking them off.

Desjardins got hit. The day I was applying for my 5 free years of Equinox I got an email telling me MGM Grand got hacked. Their elite Equinox plan was not as good because you had to start paying after 1 year.

I set up my email so the entire address is visible and I'm forced to load remote content. I never open an email I'm not sure about but I could have been a billionaire because apparently I have about 100 rich uncles who left millions each. Banks and other legit business never open with "Dear" Mister.

I don't answer my cell phone if I don't recognize the number. I don't often anyway. If it is important they will leave a message. Same for text. When I had a LAN line I did answer the phone and if it was the bank I told them I'd call them back. I didn't know who was on the other end of the line.

Greg Edwards: On a positive note, Canon have now implemented the image.canon -> lightroom service they promised. Works quite well too.

Who knows. I read that Canon may be withholding info Adobe needs and/or legal issues with both parties. On another note Jared Polin was testing the Canon R5's eye AF and had offered some DNG's for download. Adobe Colour looks very good with this body.

It probably bounces from server to server all over the world so finding the original source is very difficult. It could be you neighbour who seems like a very nice person that has a family.

I'm finding this very odd. The image.canon -> Lightroom indicates a partnership to some degree yet we have not seen Canon matching colour profiles for the new CR3 RAW format in over a year except for the Canon R. They just copied the 5D4.

I'm sorry and I feel your and everyone else's pain. OK. I will take your word for it. COVID 19 was just starting to caress us 6 months ago. I predict it is going to get much worse than it is now especially when the winter months kick in where people spend more time indoors.

I'm going to bookmark this. We will see if Canon gets the same air time in 6 months.

Now way. What a lame excuse. Sample galleries are always posted around the time of a new release. I was just about start a new post on this. Why a sample gallery now? This tells me what camera manufactures DPReview sides with.

Karl Huber: Adobe is legion for their appalling security. How many tens of millions of customers had their private details lifted from an Adobe server? I know I was one and it took me nearly 2 weeks to repair the damage done.

I don't think we are fully aware of how much we are being tracked. The companies that win the Data wars will rule. More valuable than oil and water.

I swear Siri listens to everything. We are watching a movie and I type a few letters into the search engine to get some info and the name of the move comes up. You look for an item and adds for it follow you all day.

Desjardins had a mass breach. A few months ago I was applying for the free Equifax offer. That same day I got another Equifax offer from MGM Grand as they were hacked as well.

My two favourite movies that predict the future. Blade Runner (original) and Minority Report. If you don't like it now just wait.

C1 is overrated. Oversaturated cartoon colours and for that price not one of my telephoto lenses are listed fo lens corrections.

Horshack: FYI, a sensor readout speed of 19ms corresponds to 1/52 (1000/19).

Yes less rolling shutter but I think it only shows up when tracking very fast smaller birds like swifts.

I got this off the internet random search so I'm not sure how accurate.

Canon EOS R Rolling Silent Shutter Speed (Measured) ... it means that the electronic shutter travels the full height of the frame in ~ 75 ms, or ~ 1/13.3 s.

Does anyone know what the readout is for the R?

DrCastle: Frackin hilarious how some people say R5 is better than a7r4 and a9 combined. a7r4 shoots 60MP WITHOUT Antialiasing filter(whereas R5 has AA filter which decreases sharpness). Also there is no objective support whatsoever that R5 has autofocus system that matches that of a9(and a9m2). In fact the sample gallery of R5 shows almost 30% of missed-focus shots in the quintessential setting of a bicycle approaching in zig zag. I’m sorry but R5 is clearly a compromise between sports and high-res, and not a very good one at that. Look at D850 or a7r4 and you will find both amazing resolution(without AA filter) AND very good autofocus.(3D tracking / real time tracking)

You can also delude yourself that that combo works fine. I don't have $16,000 for glass and I don't want 24mp.

Canon users are accused of being sensitive. Look in a mirror lately?

Exactly whumber. Top notch photographers at FM that know what they are talking about.
