Thanks for this video

But isn't this is basically Live View composing that all cameras with live view can do. I dont think its unique to the R

or

am I missing something

Sorry Mike I was in the dr office responding to your post... In this video I was simply showing the control ring and adjustment on the camera. If your face is not up to the viewfinder the rear screen is active. But it did show the ease of use. at that time it was set on EC. I found it the most use set to ISO, but I'm sure it could be anything a guy wants.

Hi EOS R people. Great photos! So this camera system is here to stay? 30 years? Dozens of future bodies and 100 lenses? Is that what’s coming for sure?

I believe so. Imagine how much they have put into development to come out with a new platform of this magnitude with 4 lenses ranging from $500-$3000.

My RF 35mm shipped. I'm hoping I get it Wednesday before we leave for Thanksgiving!

With the short minimum focus distance and IS, the great price of that 35mm makes it as good a choice as Tamron's 35mm. The Tamron gets nice images. I have one. But looking forward to seeing what comes from the new RF 35mm

RF 35mm! Of the first four RF series lenses to be released, this is the cheapest and thus most underrated and underappreciated. I've been shooting EOS R with the battery grip attached from day 1 but took it off to enjoy the compactness of the whole setup - it's almost as compact as an old SLR. In terms of image quality, it's impressive, certainly great value for money.

It's tempting to buy the RF 35mm, but I already have the Tamron 35mm and two 50mm. Just sold an 85mm and still have two 85mm left. So with multiples already, I'm constraining purchases, party to save for a pro RF body, and also see what other lenses come to pass in 2019.

But it looks like you got a winner with that lens.

Oh yes, DP Review. They are sort of late to the party, and haven't figured out how to use the controls yet (according to their own words). But for almost a $1000 less than the 5D mk iii I had, the images are even better that I was getting.

I think Jared Polin had one of the better reviews that shows how someone can successfully implement features and the inherent new aspects. When Polin comments on the 70-200mm 2.8, it also delves into the EOS R's knack to make EF lenses seem like new improved lenses even though the lens design remains the same.

I watched it :)

DPreview overscoring a Nikon Z7, or underscoring the R, because R is really more fit for photographers with better AF. And I always heard in many reviews that new R body well controlled, except M-Fn bar.

But banding and noise on 5d4 is little bit better and its camera from 2016, and in 2018 I want something more progressive, but have the R sensor. :(

The world wants a a9 style body from Canon for just over $2000.... me included... But $6000 camera's can't be bought for less than half price, even on black friday...at least not in Canada.

Now I only took a few thousand images with the R ranging from iso 100 to 12,800 or so inside and out day and night... looking through them right now in lightroom and running that exposure slider up to +5.00 and anywhere inbetween I can't find anything in the images that would cause any photographer to gasp and run crying into the camera store demanding their money back... Can't find any banding at all as a matter of fact. and I'm one who shoots low and pushes up going against the grain for many years.. almost everything I have here on POTN is exactly that.. and I'm using sub $1500 camera's in the worst of conditions...

Youtube has immense power of suggestion. It sure can sway some intelligent minds... So much miss information.. then retraction.. One of the reasons I just had to get one and see for myself. I took it back to the store for one reason only... the money.... I have a hard time spending money.. since I returned it I've been trying to figure out how to get another... regardless of Jared and Tony... :-D

Yeah, better to wait a bit, Jeff.

But you have no 7DII any more, right? Do you have something else you can shoot birds with at the moment?

Lol well.. Remember I've used it so I know just what the R is... I would say it was the best thing since sliced bread. I really liked shooting it.

So much more advanced than the 7DII. Clean images at higher iso's... I really enjoyed it. Its not a killing machine on steroids.

It was just fun.. and I think I needed that more. Right now I'm in the dumpster about photography. I think a lot of people are looking to move on to something new.

And ya NO 7DII... and I don't really want one... I'm ready for a change.
