  • I love the ef85L 1.4 is, and it can be had for about $1100.  I shoot w the ring adapter on the R. Cheaper is the ef50L 1.2, which isn't quite as good as the rf version, but I love mine. BUT...  I ...
  • Time will change the costs.  My ef24-70L shoots 90% of my studio work...  it's a brilliant lens.  I paid $2200 for it.  You will love it, but... mounted on the R w adapter, it's an awkward ...
  • Matt.... your rationale is sound, as per usual, but having followed you, and benefited from your journey, I'll say that I hope you continue to "evolve" because your wider interests benefit all of ...
  • Interested to hear your evolving take on the rf24-240. Is it possible to see signs of in lens distortion correction in pixel peeping IQ?  And what to look for? I'd make similar low light complaints ...
  • The 5Dii had groundbreaking video capabilities, and it was still a huge success with pros and actually helped shape the products of pros shooting weddings and corporate, where video is now ...
  • Yes....  the R5 is the next generation 5D.  It's positioned as the all around workhorse for pros doing weddings, portraits, corporate, which makes up most of the pros in the biz.  It will also ...
  • Mine is set to exposure compensation, and I find it easier/more natural than the top wheel adjustment.  In fact, I love it on the control ring adapter for ef glass too
  • I do think that Canon gets judged more harshly than others on dpreview. But honestly, it's hard to tell, because for me, I'm all Canon, and learning curve and a boatload of Canon glass keeps me...

  • Yep...  I missed that updated cpu option altogether.  Thought the only update was the new cpu options, and I was avoiding Mojave at the time.  I was impressed at the 16" 8 core improvement over my ...
  • I'm betting that you will have a 45mp beast soon enough....  :-P  the R5 may prove irresistable to you.  Even though I want the high MP, I have already admitted to myself that the R5 cannot be ...
  • sounds wise....  its a great camera
  • I'm in exactly your boat.  My primary work is studio, and the 5dsr is my primary camera.  I bought the R a year after if came out, because I was tired of waiting for the rumored high megapixel ...
  • I own the 70-300L, and it's great outdoors, and compact for travel, but too slow for indoor shooting even with daylit windows...   You'll find plenty of times even then when it can't hit focus ...
  • Matt...   do you keep boot patriots for both os versions or two computers? i do multiple os boot partitions on my 2010 Mac Pro...  bot not on my MacBook Pro. i think the Vega gpu option for your ...
  • Matt....A little confusing when you say 2019... because the mbp we are talking about is typically called the 2018 mbp because of when it was launched. The 2019 is the 16". But I get it... and yes, ...
  • I'm a Photoshop pro, so you may not need what I do, but a couple notes might be helpful. I've been riding an 2010 maxed out Mac Pro tower for a decade, and then a year and a half ago, I needed to ...
  • Seems silly to use the Canon $6500 flagship pro camera here, against the rest. Likely should have been the EOS R in this field.

  • I probably will buy the R3 (high megapixel) but in the meantime, the R5, because spectacular 4K video (slow mo too) and only a 5mp slip from my 5Dsr, but I can use my rf28-70 as my primary lens on ...
  • For me it was the adapted ef85L 1.4 is....   at about $1200.  No looking back for me.  Though until the R5, I am still shooting my 5Dsr too, so double duty for now.
  • I looked hard at the rf85L and decided on the ef85L 1.4 IS.  LOVE it on my R, and 5Dsr...  at about $1200. but R5 ibis of course.  No regrets w the control ring adapter on the R, set for exp ...
