  • Dan, Will the Godox/Flashpoint Canon R5 OCF HSS TTL fix require a change in the R2 transmiiter, flash unit itself, or both? Would a software update (when available) do the trick or is it hardware ...
  • Greg, Thank you for some constuctive advice. I feel that Canon may be considering my repeated request to either properly repair my lens or replace it with a sharp copy. The CPS phone guys have been ...
  • As I previously stated, my R5 and lens are both back from the Canon Service Center. This was the second attempt by the service center to correct the problem I am having with my RF 24-105L lens and ...
  • Thank you. I have the camera and lens in-hand right now and I must say it is beyond clean. The viewfinder is better than I have been able to clean it and it wasn't bad when I sent it to Canon. I ...
  • I was contacted today by Canon both by phone and email.  They have refunded the six CPS membership charges to my respective credit cards that I used. I am sorry that you feel that you are entering ...
  • I have tried to accurately document the situation. I have included large JPEGS pics with EXIF intact. I have even corrected myself when I stated something incorrectly. I feel that this situation ...
  • It depends upon the level of membership. Silver is free. Gold currently costs $100.00 plus tax per year in the USA. I was first attempting to renew at the Silver level and when that failed I tried ...
  • Update on my situation. Canon is shipping my lens and camera back but I am not optimistic that they actually fixed anything. They seem to be fixated on focus when I have repeatedly told them it is ...
  • Canon recently "upgraded" their website. I attempted to renew and pay for my CPS membership six times using two different credit cards. In each case an error occured and I never got to the next ...
  • I am having somewhat similar issues with Canon repair stating that my lens is OK and now they also have my R5 as they couldn't duplicate my issue with just my 24-105L lens. https://www.dpreview.com ...
  • I foolishly thought the RF was the third generation of this lens with Canon applying all that they had learned with gen 1 and gen 2 to it. I anticipated the type of performance that people who won ...
  • I have to correct one statement that I made above. After checking my notes I see that John from Canon CPS did indeed call me on 10/7/2021. He said that he received the pictures thet I sent to them ...
  • Update. After calls to CPS about my lens repair, after uploading JPEG photos to them, after uploading the RAW photos to them, after additional calls to them...today when I called I was told they ...
  • I have been reading more on the web about Canon's 24-105L f4 series of lenses (EF gen 1, EF gen 2, and RF). Bottom line is that Canon has difficulty in producing uniform quality lens to lens for ...
  • Greg, Thanks for the video reference. Doesn't paint a favorable picture for the RF 24-105L starting at 12:45. From the additional comments to his video it seems like there is plenty of lens to lens ...
  • Thank you. I will post the outcome. Fingers crossed.
  • Thank you. I just got off the phone with Canon CPS. The rep was very professional, nice, and apologetic. They are sending me a prepaid shipping label and will try again to get the lens in proper ...
  • Interesting that you had the same "defect" with the same lens. I purchased the RF version so that I would have an improvement in terms of both resolution and image stabilization. I feel that I got ...
  • Created discussion thread Issue with RF 24-105 L
    I recently sent my Rf 24-105 L lens to Canon for warranty service. I felt that the lens at the wide end, especially the lower left corner, was too soft. In addition, I felt that the IS was not an ...
  • I have both a 5D MIII and an R5. On both I use CWA metering with exposure compensation as needed while in aperture priority 99% of the time. The other 1% is still CWA metering but with manual ...
