Thanks.
£519 v's US$500. We always get stung in the UK.

VAT...as inevitable as death
Back in the early 1980s's I bought an Olympus OM-1n in the UK because my OM-1MD jammed. As a tourist, I would buy the body at a discount store and get the VAT refunded to me by mail. Due to the current exchange rate (about 1.1 GBP to USD1 rather than the historically usual 1.8 GBP per USD) the new OM-1n could be had for about 2/3 the price of the same body in NYC.

Great video Charlie

I agree with all of this

Well done.
I bought a cheaper AE1 in Singapore in 1977 and that camera lasted for many years.
The savings in Singapore was worth it for me and I only get the occasional grey market stuff in Asia as I am going through there anyway.

As an enthusiast, I cannot justify the costs of very expensive camera items hence why I still have a 7D.
The Full Frame EOS R with a silent shutter and the flippy screen are interesting to me as my kids and wife alter their demeanor when they hear the shutter noise.
The few photos I have seen from the EOS R look good.

I decided to buy the M50 for a small travel mirrorless. As I read through the reviews and specs, it seems the M50 mirrors the EOS-R in many, many ways. My goal, I believe, is to sell my SL2 since the M50 will allow me to use other lenses, and the EF-M mount lenses are so small. The 50 1.2 I have for it is so tiny. This will allow me to sit this particular EOS-R release out and watch what happens with the subsequent releases, while learning much of Canon's mirrorless landscape through the M50.

With the Fotodiox pro adapter, I can still use the M50 for real estate shots with my EFS/crop lenses too. The EOS-R seems to share so many things with the M50, so I am curious how large an upgrade the next announcement willl be.

The Canon adapter is really cheaper and no issues with AF performance or getting stuck, any reason why you went for the Fotodiox over that?

Cuttlefish, I was also shooting with a 7D (also from release day) and I like the R so far. I had been considering a move to full frame for a while, and this was a nice step up from the 7D. So far, that's more noticeable in high ISO performance, focus speed, and the bluetooth/wifi features.

I still have my 7D, and it gets used occasionally - mostly for astro stuff.

I moved from it as my main body to a 5D3, then to a 5D4. If the EOS R has essentially the same sensor as the 5D4 then you're going to have a ball vs what comes off the 7D sensor ;-)a


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

Not sure why you say Canon is cheaper. To me, it looks like the Canon adapter ($199) costs 5x the Fotodiox adapter ($39.95).

There are a few different adapters. That one that you linked to has the programmable ring. They have a more basic adapter that I suppose is just a pass through sort of thing, it's $99. And I was watching one of those unboxing videos, the basic adapter was included in the camera/lens package.

The question that Dlee13 asked of TeamSpeed was about the EF to EF-M adapter, not the EF to RF adapter.

Wow the price has really gone up since I got mine. It was like $80US/$129AUD when I bought it. I guess the M series is more popular now compared to back then (this was when the M3 released) so the price has been jacked up too.

Just be careful because I remember back then there was a lot of cases of adapters getting stuck on bodies.

No worries these days with the m50 and others, and even the fotodiox is a new adapter than before.

And my apologies... I didn't notice when I made my post that you are in Sydney. If I had, I would have noted that the prices were USD. The way that different companies' prices change in different countries (including the US) seems erratic to me. I suppose it depends on the local market and what their local distributors feel like charging.

Seems silly that the EF to EFM is $199 for a basic adapter, and the EF to EOS-R is $99. Canon pricing is pretty darn silly. This is why I bought a 3rd party, $200 for a passthrough adapter is silly.

BTW, the Canon adapter was announced in July 2012 and listed at $199 USD even then, so there have been no price increases since then.
