A recent review on one of the EOS R's lens options - the 28-70mm f/2

Wonder if more photographers will buy this lens than the 11-24mm that is close to the same price. The uses are not very similar. And not many photographers afford lenses this expensive.


an f2 mid range zoom lens is sexy! why couldnt they do 24mm though!? would have been awesome.

Ken Rockwell has a table that compares just about everything it is possible to compare between the Sony, Nikon, and Canon mirrorless cameras. (he must be up to his eyeballs in camera gear in his house) He has a soft spot for Canon, he seems generally more favorable towards the EOS R than the other 2, but at the end admits the ratings were not to be taken too seriously. Here is the link and part of his summary, seems reasonable, I think we perhaps exaggerate tiny shortcomings as being more significant than they are.

The final answer is that you should get whichever brand you already love; they are all surprisingly wonderful. Nikon and Canon's brand-new mirrorless are amazingly excellent. If you're invested in either Canon or Nikon, their new mirrorless work the same as your DSLR - just better - and give the same colors you love. If you're already in Sony and if you love the menu system and in-hand-feel, then stick with them.

It appears that the control ring adapter has now shipped from Adorama as well. I had a couple minutes to try out the RF 24-105, but was unable to find any ducks in the time I had.

The EVF is a little awkward with distance glasses, but I more or less seem to be able to focus on it without the glasses. The fly-by-wire focus ring on the 24-105 works with the lens set to MF, but doesn't seem to work in AF, although I think it's supposed to. I like the new FV mode - it's easy to bounce between essentially Av, Fv, and ISO priority modes.

The camera is running fine with my 9-year-old 7D battery while the new battery charges.

Thanks for posting your first impressions!

Doesn't it have a diopter adjustment?

EDIT: According to the manual, there is a dioptric adjustment knob. It's to the left of the viewfinder. Try adjusting that while you look through with your distance glasses on.

It does, and that gets me close enough without glasses. There's apparently enough difference in the eye focus distance with the SLR vs the electronic viewfinder that I can still see with the SLR, although that isn't perfect either. I have more astigmatism than distance correction, and the diopter adjustment can't compensate for astigmatism.

If the full time manual focus works the same as in the M5 you need to be in one shot AF and the shutter button must be depressed as you turn the focus ring. I assume the same with the R.

Stopped at Best Buy to see what the kit felt like. Guess I should have posted the unboxing :-)
Personally, was hoping ver. 1 would be a little lighter, but I liked the fit. A bit top-heavy with that lens, but nicer than my 5d4 rig.
As had been mentioned previously, the back focus button is quite a bit further right— about where the star button is on the 5. A bit uncomfortably so, for these older thumbs.

Speaking of ergonomics, being able to go down the line and pick up a “comparable” Sony, Nikon, Fuji and Panny-
Canon gets it. Some of those manufacturers seem to be designing bodies meant to be held by robots. Even the M50 felt better than any of those. Having used versions of all of those brands in the past, I won't get into the menu system -?. (Yes, I know one can adjust.)

This is the most boring release ever. People should have had their cameras by now all over the country/world, I would think, but there is no noise anywhere about the common folk owning this camera and posting their findings on it, in any forum. Just a periodic random one here and there, like this thread.

Come on people, get on with it already!

I noticed a couple days ago, a surge on Youtube by a bunch of people who posted unboxing and various other videos about the EOS R.
