this one was shot with the Canon 70-200mm f4 non IS in full frame sensor but cropped by a x1.4 Canon extender
i normally don't use this setup for portraits but for the sake of testing

Glad you folks are sharing these. Especially like the last one.

I already have enough saved for an EOS R. My question is whether to wait for a Pro version. I just put my Canon M5 on ad, and if that sells. good chance I will just add a bit extra cash and get two. The model now plus a pro version later.

Still scratching my head over which path.

What features do you want that you are considering waiting?


I like to shoot things...sometimes with a camera!

I like the R as it is right now and I think if you're looking in that direction, you'd probably enjoy this release as well. The only thing that would make it better for me is dual card slot, even though I've never actually ran two cards at once. I'm just not an SD card fan.

I shot a bunch this weekend and after setting things up, I'm right at home. High ISO performs well. No complaints with AF; different in selection, but nothing to complain about. No regrets.

I haven't dipped into video that much so far, but it has 4k and I can live with any perceived shortcomings.

And what's even better, is a1ex from magic lantern is already on the R, which if they are successful will make this camera tremendous.

I don't need another camera. I don't need another camera. My 5D4 has 30 MP. I don't need a new camera.

Keep repeating that...:-)

I hope someone can post some pics with the kit lens. I've wanted an IQ upgrade for a long time from my old 24-105 on my 5D4 (besides my 300 f/4). I've heard it's sharper than the EF 24-70 II, which would make me very happy.

You don't, you have the 5DIV. The EOS R will add nothing to your photography aside from some GAS relief.

Well it does add this, given my experiences on Canon's other mirrorless:

- Ability to purchase and actually use Rokinon/Samyang fast primes using focus peaking/5x zoom in the viewfinder
- Continuous fast AF with STM lenses when continuous AF is turned on
- Flip touch screen, with the 5D4 lacking the tilt option
- Ability in the future to actually pick up RF lenses and use them
- Silent shutter (unless silent shutter is buried in some other automated setting like on the M50, rendering it basically useless)
- With an adapter, be able to use EFS lenses

But if doing sports or fast AF tracking, it wouldn't add anything, or expecting some sort of high ISO or low ISO DR improvements, which will be nothing or negligible at best.

Honestly none of those appeal to me, with the exception of future RF lenses - though if I don't have the camera, is kind of a moot point. My Sony gives me most of those other options. I just can't pry myself away from Canon. :)

Super bored and still playing with vintage lenses before i head to work.. I was given an old OSAWA 35-70mm Macro a while back and i have used it a few times in my 550d. Did some research on this lens and not much comes up but from what i have gathered if, if i remember correctly, not a great lens, 80s lens, and the company went bankrupt a long long time ago.

i cant wait to use this camera with my EF lenses on a portrait session, I had one scheduled this past weekend but the wind was out of control. There are Halloweens festivities the next town over (Salem MA) and vendors with pop up tents had a rough day lol

She was. Standard rules of the Beagle means a prompt payment is expected following any interaction where she sits pretty and a camera is pointed in her direction. In this case, I didn’t have anything in my hand and there was no bag in sight!!!

I never thought of that! I ruined an entire dog practicing OCF with. Treats never dawned on me.

Hmm not sure about the R Pro.. But this one is awesome for photos.. Not that my 550d, 5Dmk2 and 5Dmk3 are not lol.. I love the AF system, not talking about the fancy AF stuff like face and eye detection. I don't know what that is all about but using as a single AF point where you place the focus where you want it is awesome. The single SD slot is meh for me and I had never had a memory card fail on me (currently knocking on wood) I would limit the use of it in a wedding. Yet I used my 5d2 for years as my main camera at weddings. I don't know, people get caught up too much in to the specs. I even questioned myself "do I want this camera, do I really needed this camera?" Answer was yes and the second question was no. I honestly got it because in have been waiting for a while for a Canon FF mirrorless being heavily vested in to Canon gear, cough (GAS). There was no way I was going to another camera brand with all this stuff at hand. I understand the frustration on video specs for many but I personally didn't buy this camera for video. If you can wait to get the latest and greatest then I'd wait, if you cant, id get this one or rent it so you can have a hands on experience yourself before you make your final decision... I myself have to stop spending I bought a Mavic Pro September last year and just got the Mavic 2 Pro a few months ago and my problem is that its hard for me to let go of stuff. Too many toys. Haha.. Well.. Good luck with your decision...
