  • I've only tried Eye Focus AF a couple times, but so far I'm not impressed. For disclosure I have an astigmatism, so that may factor in. Canon has been less than clear on the specifics of what ...
  • Mirrorless in and of itself means nothing without the advantages that brings over DSLR, two of those being the potential for lighter and more nimble bodies. Every mirrorless body I've owned (Z6, ...
  • I bought this "First Power" branded one last summer because it fit the bill for dual charger and USB-C (I didn't want to travel w/ multiple cable types). I've only used it on one two week trip so ...
  • I was kinda in a similar situation as you in that I put down the camera for years as I was concentrating on career and life. It's only been the past 3-4 years when I've really been able to ...
  • I haven’t done any math here but the RF 35 isn’t an expensive lens new. I can’t imagine a store is offering more than $200 or so. To me that’s like giving it away, especially with it being a ...
  • Last summer I did the southern Utah parks, Yellowstone, and some smaller areas. I brought the RF 15-35, 100-500, and 24-240, but typically only carried the body + attached lens on any given hike ...
  • There is a comparison video by a wedding photographer YouTuber -- forget who but I'm sure you'll find it if you type in something like rf 100 vs ef 100. But her conclusion was the two lenses are ...
  • I love days like that. So many times when I go out it's feast or famine, but that's what great about nature and the surprises it offers.  20FPS has definitely yielded me more "perfect position" ...
  • Replied in R5 power drain
    You are correct. Thanks for the catch. I'm not sure why I wrote that except that I was thinking of two things at once.
  • Replied in R5 power drain
    I'm not familiar with the 7DII's battery life or what you consider good battery life but I regularly get 700+/- shots per battery w/ my R5 -- shooting in electronic shutter in H or H+ usually. I ...
  • Just to be clear, I'm not saying or suggesting Canon is intentionally holding out on the R1. The R1 will be announced when Canon feels it's ready. But I think the timing leads to that and Canon ...
  • In fact Canon is adamant the R3 is not the flagship even though it's the most expensive R body. Oddly the 1DX III still is even though Canon's CEO basicaly killed it a couple weeks ago, saying the ...
  • In the DSLR era I only had APS-C bodies, but other than the kit lenses, I always bought FF lenses. My reasoning was FF lenses were a smarter spend in that if I ever bought a FF body I wouldn't ...
  • I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "focus comparison," but there are plenty of R6 vs R5 videos on YouTube. But if you are referring to AF speed and accuracy I think the two models are pretty ...
  • I think the operative word there is "me" ; ie., you. Canon never sold the R3 as a "jack of all trades" type camera. I watched the official introduction. It was clear its targeting shooters that ...
  • I’m not trying to be snotty but this probably will come off that way… You have a fine art tool in the R5, definitely not a budget model. What are you saving by saving space? Not money, really. CFE ...
  • Replied in R0
    Wait, you mean you’d be happy with the R0 and not wring your hands in anticipation of the yet conceived R00? Rumors are it will be a hopping body and the first ever with a ladies model with a ...
  • Sure the Z9, Nikon's stated flagship is $5500. That's irrelevant since Canon's R3, Canon's stated non-flagship is $6000. Unless Canon gives the R3's price a significant haircut the R1 will be at ...
  • Obviously R1 doesn't exist now, not even a development announcement. So any "news" you read about the R1 is speculation. It could be based on good, even accurate, sources, but specs are fluid in ...
  • Created discussion thread FYI: R3 in stock at BB right now
    Available for pickup next week right now (at least for the east coast stores) -- who knows how many they have so if they are sold out by the time you read this please don't shoot the messenger. ...
