Thank you Dennis works like a charm

Thanks for the feedback, it's something I will try later after I've tamed some of the other features I am still exploring.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Same specimen with Canon 100mm F2.8L IS Macro, hand held with OCF.

Manual Mode, 1/200 sec, F11, ISO100, Spot AF Centre Point.

As expected, being a dedicated macro lens, the 100mm F2.8 L is a stellar performer.

Cheers

Dennis

The 100L is a great lens, on any body. Nice spider!

swearing has abated (well, mostly!), needed a bit of searching, but came up with needing to disable the touchscreen apart from the top-right quadrant.

The idea is that while at eye-level, you can use the screen with your right thumb to move the AF point around in that quadrant if you need to, but avoid your nose picking stuff at random (excuse the TF baiting expression)

stupidly, the default setting is leave all the touchscreen active at least on the M5, and I can imagine thousands of users getting very, very annoyed with this. Could be they expect you to read the manual from cover to cover a million times to work out where you went wrong, but I'm picking lots of folks would give up way before they found the cure.

AHA! let me try this now.. i need to learn how to read manuals :-P Thank you


That old phrase RTFM. So often said, but rarely done completely. Even I put myself above manuals, as of course, I already know everything and no silly manual is going to teach me anything.  :p

I'll try the touchscreen disabled, since I won't be shooting via the touchscreen often. Thanks for sharing!

Something caught my eye tonight that led me back to Rockwell's site and page for the adapters. And bet he's right on the money. Speaking of the EF 50mm 1.0 L

How good is it? I've already tried my EF 50mm f/1.0 L and it seems to focus faster than ever on the EOS-R, and focus is always dead-on, not iffy as it always was on SLRs and DSLRs.

I recall you and others seeing the review from Travis Harris on Youtube where he noted a 100% hit rate using his EF 85mm 1.2 with the EOS R. So Rockwell's note correlates with this.

In a way, the EOS R may bring Canon's legendary EF lenses to a new level of legendary.

Still not a one handed camera. I've been trying to shoot often for the sake of shooting, and I'm surprised how often I shoot one handed. This is not a one handed shot.

What does that mean may I ask "not one handed"

Is a 7D2 with a 100-400mm on it one handed?

He has to support the camera with the other hand to change AF points because of the lack of a joystick and the screen is too far away to use fully as a remote.

A 100-400 is not one handed. The 7D2 with the Tamaron 90mm I used, or a 50mm prime is one handed. Even the 24-70 if you don't need to change focal length is still reasonable for one handed operation. I initially wanted to take that photo holding the sword at the angle I wanted with my left hand, but I can't change to AF point with my thumb one handed. Almost, but too much thumb surface area on the screen as I stretch to the limit and the point doesn't move. Also, holding a remote flash in the left hand, which is really nice for close up people or animals (dogs) when you're on the move. A 5DIII or IV, I don't need to think about it with the joystick.

Thank you for the condensed version. I couldn't seem to answer quite as concisely.

I can confirm that my Holy EF-85L works perfectly with my RF adapter and R, probably better than with any other body in it's long life.

Unfortunately in the process of trying it out, I discovered that my ancient Holy L's outside rubber coating has gone all soft and sticky as Hell. I don't think they are serviced by Canon any more, so what now?
