Tc I bet you, bps, Scrumhalf, well we all have a few cameras at the house eh. I mean it's our passion/obsession/love​. I'm excited
but realize it's just a tool and has its own set of limitations.
The more I thought about it the more I liked the uniqueness of it.
I do remember telling David Arbogast long ago that I felt it was an old tech sensor and I still feel that way but compared to my first pin-hole camera
out of a Ked's shoe box I think it will be OK :)

My friend, I think you're going to love this camera. You are very passionate about photography and the 5DsR is a lot of fun, especially once you realize the amount of detail it can capture. It truly does open up an entirely new world. I know how much you enjoy the detail captured by your Sony....well, now you can add nearly 20% more resolution to that!

Cheers,
Bryan

Haha this is a cropmachine. I know it's a landscape camera/portrait studio camera but for the little dinky birds you want to pluck from the branches at distance this EOS rules. Plus you can carry a much smaller lens. This a gigantic crop-

Glad to see your 5DsR arrived! And I can see that you're already enjoying it...

Thanks Bryan. Yep it's here and full of surprises.
1. it's dense/weighty more than I'd have expected though I knew the bottom was beefed up with weight and lots of screws.
2. it's quiet. the quietest EOS body I've ever used.
3. the playback isn't slow like i've read elsewhere. I just made the SD card the play from and save jpgs there.
4. I can now see why some over at FM have let dust gather on their 7Dii's in favor of this body for BIF-the FOV allows you to follow
the action much easier--but it's up to you (me) the photographer to time the shot because of the 5fps

The only kinda disappointing thing is the lack of red focus points; kinda spoiled by that.

The biggest advantage for what I like to shoot will be the ability to carry smaller lenses like the 100-400ii and use that massive cropabilty, though
it has it's limits too I'm sure.

Just seems like a natural and powerful ally to the 1DXii.

Something a bit different. From the Breakfast on the Farm (external link) event in Woodstock, Ontario.

Here is an (well not a great) example of the cropability of the 5Dsr and why some would consider it for BIF.
I had no way to know which way he would fly so I zoomed out to 140-150mm, so no matter which way he'd be
in the FOV.
Orignal and then the crop

Another big crop, and I can see why Clipper from Oz likes the 100-400ii :)

Canon 5DS and Tamron 70-200 ... this is the first use of my new 5DS tonight. Its been sitting around for about 4 days. Went downtown Medford, Oregon, just after sunset and started conversing with this taxi driver. This is the center 1/3 of the frame with the top and bottom 1/3 removed. I left the color alone mostly but muted the blue slightly. Minimal to brightness. The colors came out much better than anticipated even though I had watched reviews .... Handheld ... 1/200 ... ISO 200 ... available light ... f/2.8

Great shot.
I did miss the negative reviews on color though.

The reviews I read and saw on video were actually positive and even showed some examples. But the samples were relatively small, so that's why I was still surprised to see how good the file looked out of the camera.
