  • The problem are the old non ART lenses. My 35 1.4 ART performs perfect with the R. But the "old" 85 1.4 "non ART" underexposes 1.5 stops. Sigma could not tell me if there is any firmware upgrade ...
  • Because all of these Metz flashes are very good and much cheaper than Canon flashes. They have everything i need - power, ettl, hss, sturdy built. I can trigger every flash remotely with any of ...
  • Created discussion thread EOS R & Metz Flash
    Hey dear forum. I have an eos r and the following metz flashes. 58 af-1 58 af-2 M400 64 af-1 With firmware 1.0.0 there were problems with brightness bands in HSS flash mode. Now after updating the ...
  • I own a EOS R and several DSLR's. (5d3 1d..) Never used a DSLR again since i got the R. The biggest downside of the RP for me is 1/4000. Anything else is fine for a photocamera. I am thinking about ...
  • My Sigma 85 1.4 EX DG HSM (non ART) underexposes by 1.5 stops. Sent to Sigma for newest firmware. I was told there exists a firmware update for the 5dmk4. Unfortunately, the problem remains. Even ...
  • I compared the new and old UK / DE version. The "new" manual is from november. Quite outdated. But there is one difference - page 151. Silent shooting with full electronic shutter now possible with ...
  • But my good old lightweight Sigma AF 85mm F1,4 EX DG HSM underexposes by 1.5 stops.
    No firmware update in sight.

  • The focus is spot on with the EOS R and 5d mk3. I don't see any differences. Even with focus tracking. But the 5dmk3 is a bit faster  :) The Sigma 100-400 also works very well on the EOS M5. Even ...
  • I have this combo. AF speed is comparable to the 5d mk3. Only when the object is completely out of focus the eos r has more problems than the 5d mk3. But this only happens if there is nothing but a ...
  • I checked if there is a firmware update via tap in console. But there is not.
  • Created discussion thread Tamron 24-70 2.8 G2 aparture jumping
    Does anyone have the same problem with the Tamron 24-70 G2? Sometimes - but really only sometimes the aperture starts to adjust when it is bright. Like when the camera closes the aperture when it's ...
  • The adapter is quite sturdy. It is black on the cam side. But not because it's made of plastic. It is anodized aluminum. Very good quality at this price.
  • I got my Viltrox Speedbooster a few days ago. I also own some other full frame cameras, including an EOS R, but I really wanted to play around with this thing. Of course, the image quality suffers ...
  • That's exactly what always happens at my eos r.
    If the brightness value after a 4ev push is in medium grey, it throws bands.
    The original raw has a black value (in percent) of 1.5.
    This is really...

  • I have a Sigma 85 1.4. The non ART version. The lens worked perfectly on the 5d mk3. Unfortunately it underexposes on the eos r 1.5 f-stops. Sigma already had the lens in house for firmware update. ...
  • Replied in Shadow lifting
    To put it a bit in a perspective i checked the "banding" with a few other cameras. Unless you go into the total extreme it is nothing to be worried about. But you can clearly see the Sony sensors ...
  • I have the R since 2 weeks. In ~700 real life photos i never came across banding. But i played a bit with the camera. So, i can see it if i take a picture that is so dark it would be complete ...
  • It works perfectly. The lens is quite big, the whole thing is a little top heavy. The focusing speed is fantastic. I can recommend it!
  • Nobody mentioned the Metz M400? It's small but powerful. The LED light spared me a flashlight in the dark tunnels on madeira. I'm using it on my M5 and sometimes with a 5dmk3.
