  • @RebelbyNature You hit the nail squarely on the head and that is exactly what this is. I called it in the forums that this would be the lowest rated mirrorless camera to date and it would score a...

  • @ daellis I couldn't agree more, been shooting with mine now since the release date and I have used just about every kind of camera out there. The EOS R is not perfect but no camera is and it is...

  • Yes I think the colors and contrast are pretty darn good.  This shot has some Post per my taste but not too much.  The 60D is actually converted for IR but I would say the R is between the 6D and ...

    I went out at sunrise this morning and tried out the Canon R with my 500mm f4 and 1.4x TC.  Since I shoot this lens combination a lot with my 5DsR I figured why not see what the R can or can't do. ...
  • Here are a few more jpeg shots using the Canon EOS R with the 100-400mm II and 2X TC III.  The shot of the fence is wide open at f11 and the other two are f13.  All are handheld.  They do appear ...
  • Replied in BIF with EOS R
    Nice job,  when I was shooting with the Fuji X-T2 and Olympus Em-1 I had the same issues with the "slide show" appearance in the viewfinders.  I found this to be true as well on the R in some of ...
  • It seems to focus very well with long lenses although I have not had a chance to really test anything that is moving but static in good light with the TC snaps into focus quite quickly.  Hope to ...
  • It does so far ;)
  • Well I have had the camera for about 24 hours and taken a few test photos in different lighting conditions today.  Overall the focus is working very well and I was extremely surprised how well it ...
  • My understanding was all the regions expect the North American market get a "basic" adapter.  It would not surprise me if they filled all those first and NA market was last.  I talked to my local ...
  • Let me first say I have this pre-ordered and think it will be a very good camera but DPR has disliked the R from the get go so I'm guessing a 79% Silver award and will be the lowest rated Full ...
  • @Jonathan Brady I didn't say ignore competition and why do you care about Canon's, in your own words "locked down ecosystem"? You are a Sony shooter according to your profile and I'm sure you are...

  • It's funny, all the focus and hate speech on this camera just draws that much more attention to it. What ever happened to just liking the brand you like and taking photos. We've become a society...

  • I sure am glad i just sold mine now.

  • You can't fix stupid...

  • @Beaverhelmet, personally I think any kind of trolling is childish and only reinforces the insecurities that the trolls have which is why they troll in the first place. I have nothing bad to say...

  • I think all the Sony Trolls on here secretly wish they had Canon or Nikon gear.....why else would they spend so much time and effort bashing a brand that they should have no interest in?

  • Well said.

  • I read one reviewer tried the camera in a local photoshop and the Sigma's seemed to work great but the Tamron lenses would not.  I believe he said there was an ERR msg so possibly a FW update from ...
