My view is there are at least two 'normal' sized lenses. The 35 and the 24-105.
The 28-70 f2, we have no other lens from any manufacturer to compare to. I believe the size and weight is as to be expected for the zoom range and speed.
The 50 1.2 therefore is the only one of four lenses I'd agree is gargantuan and that means we need a new superlative for the Sigma 105 f1.4. Super gargantuan? :-)

It's early days, 4 lenses. Lightweight 35 and 50 pancakes are on my wish list too and if Canon don't provide I'm sure others will.


Mark My words

when the 105R is announced and in production, there will be a rush to go to these R bodies. The Sigma 105 Art is remarkable. Who would have ever thought that you could get 200F/2.0 performance from a 105mm lens. If it is anywhere near the 50R in terms of sharpness, color and contrast, Not many are going to buy a 200F/2.0. Really no need

The optics on these new R lens are impressive to say the least

Stacking TCs will become far more common IMHO. I have been able to get great results with stacked TCs before the R, but it's a very low keeper rate.
I have used double beanbags to support the camera and lens (on a boulder), silent shooting or mirror lockup to minimize any equipment movement.
It's achieving focus using focus ring on an AF lens which is much more difficult than a MF lens that is the biggest challenge.

Having to help the AF a little (on the R) is a very minor issue. What has surprised me is the shutter vibration. It is significant.

It does not sound off to me at all...

Go look at the junk you took of the family a short time ago around the Christmas tree or outside on the toboggan hill.. special moments... yes... Their not the prettiest or the most technically correct images I'm sure.

...

Any single person makes a statement of their joy of using this camera you contradict them and make them feel wronged... personally I've had more than I care to watch..

...

In August 2012 I jointed this forum called POTN... It was a fun group of individuals sharing Images and checking each others work in a friendly polite manner which was head and shoulders above the rest.... I was not the photographer then that I am today... And mostly because of the people in here that helped me along the way with many PM's and conversations on the forum pages... I say ..... Thanks to you guys... only my addiction to POTN brings me back everyday.. but if I learned anything after quitting smoking...
don't know how many years ago............. I can quit just about anything...


Wait, what??? He has posted pictures??? checking profile it says he last posted a picture in 2014

The gun forum I frequent has a wonderful “ignore” feature that lets you blacklist members and never see their posts (unless someone quotes them). I don’t use it because I kinda like watching the train wreck that usually follows as that type of person steps on their d... Don’t know if this forum has the feature or not.

Don’t quit POTN, your work is one of it’s best features as far as I am concerned. Just quit looking at crap posts.

It definitely appears that the EOS R is capable of breathing new life into old and not so old glass, like the TCs. That is very intriguing to me. Further, this is just the first R camera body. Having the ability to use all of your existing glass plus access the new, just over the horizon, RF glass is a real plus.

I fear there are New Years Resolutions that are not going to age well.

I tried with 1DX2 and got good results but not easy manually focusing an AF lens.

Advantage EVF. Now I am only risking melting aperture blades and the R sensor, which would of course hurt, but my eyes are safe.

Agreed, I love seeing your work, so more time taking pics and less time reading what other people say please :)

Finally got my hands on an R today;

Instantly felt comfy to hold, very happy with that.

EVF was terrible, until I adjusted the little wheel so it was in focus, much better after that, but, I still found it weird to use, especially the delay coming on when you bring it to your eye.

Adjustment wheel wasn't in a comfortable spot, at all, it almost hurt my finger to come back that far and operate it.

'AF ON' seemed like a small button and again didn't seem to fall to hand, not great for BBF.

Loved the control ring, it was set for exposure adjustment, just superb seeing that work.

24-105 surprisingly compact, suited the camera well.

I was expecting the control bar to be tactile somehow, some sort of click so show it's locked/unlocked, like a page turn on a kindle, but it just wasn't, so almost seemed dead, no feedback.

I struggled with the touch screen, I couldn't seem to get it to focus on any one thing, seemed the best I could get was a general area, that really put me off, almost felt like I had no control over it. But, that may be because it wasn't set up right, also the salesman didn't seem to give a monkeys and when I asked what experience he had with it and how he got it to work best he bluntly said 'none' and walked off.

So, sadly not immediately sold on it, and my eye couldn't help but be drawn to the A7III on my way out.......

So, I need people to persuade me about the auto focus, the ability to quickly change focus points, how good it is etc, in hindsight that's the one thing that really put me off.

I was a fairly vocal critic of the touch and drag AF at first. I did not like it. At all.

After a couple of weeks I was able to move the AF point with the same speed as the joystick on the 5D4 (and 1DXii). But with the R, you have way more area to cover and you can place the point exactly where you need it.

For me, there is only one combination of settings that works. I need all three: touch sensitivity needs to be set to high, AF movement needs to be set to relative, and I need only the right half of the screen enabled. Any other settings were very frustrating for me.

I'm talking about 'pancake' lenses, like the EF 40mm f/2.8. Small, flat, plastic, light :) But as you point out, that RF 35mm f/1.8 is quite small, and would be nice on the R body.

Doesn't matter though, even if they release one today, I'm not buying anything until 2020 :-P

Just saw your new sig,...

Bwahahahahah  :p

Do any of you guys know of a quicker way to jump from one af type to another? I'd liek to move from single point af to face detect (those are the only two options I have enabled) but can't seem to find it.

This forum has the Ignore feature. Just click on the person's username and then click on "Add to your ignore list."

After that you can go to "your FYEO page". Scroll down to "Friends/Ignored", then down to the modes section. There you can select which mode you prefer to use.
