I’ve relapsed! In challenging my thoughts to sell the Canon stuff, I have been using the Canon glass on the Sony as well as using the Canon more again. I gotta say, in live view mode it functions much like a mirror less. And with the touch screen, picking what you want in focus is a quick tap away. Focus is very fast and accurate. And it’s easier (to me) to zoom in and view the focus more precisely.
When reviewing pictures, there is also NO delay to zoom in. The Sony I hit zoom and it’s gotta be a solid 5 seconds before it zooms in. I think they need a faster processor in the Sony. Maybe the R3 is better.
So now my GAS has brought me back to the 35L II. I need help.
The R3 is fast if you're using the fast type cards for playback. I skimped for a while with slower cards till I found a sale on a fast 128 for ~100. 260MB/s up and down, playback is very fast. Touch to focus is really nice, use it all the time, but I wouldnt do that with a big lens or dslr setup.
it runs circles around the R2 if you're looking for a very responsive camera. I was testing out crop mode when shooting the eclipse. I parked it on continuous high shooting, and the buffer simply would not fill up
it's a crazy good camera and really has DSLR like responsiveness all around.
eye focus is like sticky glue, and I often use it in conjunction with the tap focus when multiple people involved. Utra fast programmable function to swap AF modes is one of the most enjoyable features for me, love to toggle between wide area, which excels at single person subjects, and toggle to point when I need a specific target. Rating system means that I cull in camera, so my workflow is vastly improved, I cull real fast in camera saves the hassle of culling in lightroom/c1, which is slower at zooming 1:1. I have a small personal rule about photography, that if an image looks good in a small display, it'll look even better on a larger display, and I like using this rule to pick my keepers.
