  • What you describe is more or less my strategy.  I picked up a R through CPW with a decent discount knowing that I may sell it next year at what could be a substantial loss.  Historically I've kept ...
  • I do more mountain biking than hiking/climbing these days but I still carry my camera equipment with the same style of bag.  I like the backpacks with the side access where you can swing the ...
  • I've been considering that option for a few months but with the advent of the RF mount, I am going to keep my 85 f/1.2LII and see how the RF side develops.
  • There is no 10 second delay option when using a remote.  Also I'm surprised that the RC-6 works on your 6D2 because it is infrared based and the newer Canon DSLRs are Bluetooth based.
  • This was posted on Canon Rumors as the most popular rental gear at LensRentals for 2018. I believe the 2017 list showed similar results. What doesn't make sense to me is that with Sony's Superior ...
  • Congratulations on your camera.  I saw your OP on the Sony E Mount forum and you took some heat but good for you. I received my R a couple of weeks ago but have not had time to really shoot with it ...
  • @MILK Man - at least you're honest and state that you choose cameras for technology and not for features/functions that help your photography.

  • People may have a preference for or against a Sony sensor but the bigger problem is that this will lead to a more expensive camera or Canon will make less profit  Either way it will most likely be ...
  • The Canon Connect app works great with the R. The setup is different than the 5DIV and other Canon DSLR's because you pair it through Bluetooth and not directly with the WiFi. Follow the steps in ...
  • The Eneloops are the best although rumor has it that the Amazon Basic Ni-MH are Eneloops that are private labeled. Here is a small kit with a very good charger: https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-K ...
  • Out of curiosity, do you own the R or have extensive experience with it?  If not, I’m wondering how you are able to draw these conclusions. Randy
  • You will most likely not see a Black Friday/Holiday discount for the R in this range.  I purchased a 5DIV when it was relatively new through this program and the EOS R through CPW about a week ...
  • The review and score seem harsh but without using the other major FF ML bodies extensively, it's tough to judge how fair and unbiased the assessment is. I never make a purchasing decision based on...

  • Your idea is just to duplicate Canon's FF DSLR offering.  Not really an original idea but would be a logical approach.
  • I just received my RF 24-105 and there is more play in the barrel than any other L zoom (24-70 f/2.8 ii, 24-105 f/4 and 16-35 f/4) that I own.  When attached to the R body, I can feel a small ...
  • I own the 5DIV and just received my R yesterday.  I haven't had any time with the new body but a couple of observations.   From a portability standpoint, the R with Rf 24-105 is smaller and ...
  • Canon is definitely not gouging.  You can twist the words of the definition to mean anything you want but most companies will price products based on what the market will bear.   In the US, we ...
  • Another option is a WiFi card reader. This is what I used when I didn't have a camera based WiFi body.  Yes, it's an extra step to transfer but was a good compromise for transferring to smart ...
  • I'm in the same boat as you.  I just ordered the R and have the same version of LR as you do.  I've been thinking about options but haven't decided on a path.  I may end up paying the subscription ...
  • This puts things into better perspective.  I haven't reviewed any of the BCN info but I assume the various A7III entries are the stand alone body and different kit configurations.  I am surprised ...
