Right now I can get the EOS R for 2149, which includes a free adapter. Do you think it will get any cheaper than that as it gets closer to Black Friday?

I can only speculate, but I think you put things on sale to give sales a boost, and with the EOS R being so new, I bet they are selling as many as they can make. So no point in discounting it so soon after introduction. (B&H has a nice sale on the 5D MK 4 and 6D Mk 2 however)

When buying a new camera, it sure is nice if I can wait until RRS releases their L bracket and Adobe supports said camera.

I haven't always done so.... and that wait until you can use the gear the way you want to is painful... at least, to me. Your mileage might vary, of course.

I don't expect any black Friday deals on the R, the 5D and 6D get a free grip though.


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

And it looks like AGAIN they're going with the two-piece design (like the 5DIV and unlike the II).
I may actually break with my tradition when I get my R and look for a lighter, less involved design. Just don't get why they changed it- just to make your rig heavier and more cumbersome?

These look exceptional.

I went back to the other two to see what lens, but what lens were you using?

Thanks!!!

When looking at all four from both posts (in order), the first was with the 35 f1.4L II and the other three are all with the 85 f1.4L IS via the standard adapter.

Which brings me to a side note... I will be picking up the control ring adapter very soon. I want easy control of my shutter, aperture, and ISO when shooting manual and the control ring seems like a great way to do that.

The 2nd adapter with ring could be worthwhile for a spare too.

If contacts or something went funky in an ONLY adapter, that paralyzes everything except for just RF lenses.

Those lenses you used are working splendid.

On Saturday morning around 2-3am i head to the place with my 550d with my fisheye and get some shots here is one

My son who lives in the area hits me on Saturday night up and asks me if I could take some shots of him.. We agreed for today (Sunday) at night.

Stuff
Canon R with various lenses. I used a 50mm f1.2L, my 135 f2.0L and for the hell of it i also used the Osawa 32-70mm Macro vintage lens i have been using with this camera.
1 Godox AD360II (key) with gridded box
my Canon 430exII (separation light) with blue gel and and Godox X1R
and Godox X1T on the camera to set them off..

Here is a BTS with me acting a dope stance as i take shots:-P

I will say guys that i was a bit lost being so used to my other dslrs. I kept focusing and recomposing with my focus point on the middle as i forgot i don't need to do this any more with this camera. Compose, move the focus point, focus and shoot. I also kept pressing the wrong buttons lol.. i felt like a noob i will not use this in weddings as of yet need to get used to the controls in fast paced jobs. Photo sessions are not so pressuring and i can deal with that using this camera. Other then that, i love my first mirrorless...

When you using a control ring, you must push and hold some button on body, or control ring can change settings of smth without any additional buttons ?

I was responding to and trying to clarify a member's question specific to the EOS-R and LR, and followed up to be sure my response was understood.

In your defense, I very much appreciated the input -- it answered my question directly.

I'm not sure my question or your response was that off-topic for this thread, but since my question about Lr was addressed, I guess sure, we can move on to EOS R-only topics.

The control ring really kinda completes the triangle.. Without the back wheel we are left with the screen. It works flawlessly in the lens or the adaptor...

I think it makes this camera much nicer to use if you are one who doesn't like messing with the back screen all the time.

There is no need to push or hold a button for control ring use. works as your wheel on a Dslr..


And Fella's talking about the CR3 files and their use is direct conversation about the EOS R as it is the only camera using it.. so I think its relevant and on topic..
