This was my grandmother's tree next to the marsh on Wilmington Island, Savannah, GA. I drew it from memory while visiting her in 1983. She had it framed the next day and it hung on her wall for many years. Most of it was drawn with single lines. To my knowledge this is my only drawing that still exists today.

Lit by low sun and diffused by mild overcast.

No birdie. It's the Canon R. Not the 5 dee...dee...dee...dee.​..dee.

I wasn’t sure about posting “graphic” photos in this thread, so started a new one with shots taken during my wife’s eyelid surgery this morning.

Nothing too gory or bloody, but I know some folks are very sensitive to those things - you’ve been warned ;-)a

https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=18781850

Small size/weight of the R and the flippy screen made these shots easy to do one-handed holding over my head.

My mother-in-law had this done about 12-18 months ago. Went very well.

I am seriously considering doing the same. While I don’t have a 1DX, I do have an 80D and I see it filling in nicely for R shortcomings where there is a lot of overlap with the 5D4.

Not in a position of “need” to sell, but thinking may as well before it depreciates any more.

I don't have a mirror'd camera body anymore. The EOS R put me over that edge. The one that is closest to the chopping block for me now is the A7R3.

Just posted my 5D4 for sale... sad day, as I thought that it was to be the last camera I’d purchase for years to come, but the R and mirrorless capability is just too good to ignore. Over the Christmas break, the R consistently brought home shot after shot, with barely any misses. Such a delight to use.

For the most part the R can do what the 5D4 does, and for everything else I have the 1DX2 (and 80D).

Before I sold my 7d2 to go full frame, my decision was between the 5d4 and the R. Even though I love the R sometimes I still wonder... but glad to read stuff like this  :p

If I hadn't been using the Fuji X100F and enjoying the mirrorless benefits for the past few months, I wouldn't have even considered the R. Complete convert now, and while the R isn't perfect, the amount of vitriol it has received from the reviewers is unfounded. This thing performs.

I was close to parting with the 80D as well, but it's an awesome, light weight body for birding when the light is good. I use it basically as a 1.6 "extender" w/ the 600, and when I take the dog walking it goes on the 100-400 II. That, and my New Years resolution is to not buy/sell/trade any gear. The 5D4 I put up just in time on the 31st, so it doesn't violate the resolution :)

Did my first RE shoot with the R today and REALLY liked it.

Took a chance and shot in JPG only, was not let down. Easily shaved a third off of my editing time over using RAW as I normally do with the 5D4 so I can recover highlights/shadows. I just trusted the display and chimped where needed.

A couple of shots from the shoot.
