Chris, this is just outstanding work. I'd absolutely hire you for my wedding.

Thanks Matthew! This forum was the first place I went to when I started out - asking simple stuff like 'Why is there only half the image showing when I use flash' and other golden noob nuggets :D

Have not posted in awhile because i have not used this camera as much as i should since i have been working like crazy. I have to be thankful for that though :love:
Here is a pic of the boy of the house from a few minutes ago as i was playing a bit with the R

This was interesting... It confirm's to me that the R is what we are stuck with for a while.. Canon did say its an addition to your existing gear so its not surprise really that the higher level camera was not sitting in boxes waiting to ship.. " A dream I had " lol .....

So in the mean time we're making the best of it.... Exploring the details and snapping at what ever moves

Astounding, simply wonderful capture :-)

The combination of the EOS-R and the 100-400L II really troubles me because I love some of the photos here with that combo but I have two little children to bring up :rolleyes:

Wait a second, haven’t you heard the R is no good for sports? AF tracking is no good, can’t keep up :-P

I likely didn't pick the best pictures. After processing some more there are better ones that I should have chosen. But I do have another chance to shoot basketball today. We'll see how that goes. In retrospect, I probably should have taken more care when processing these photos, but my players just want these pics up asap on their Twitter feed so I kinda rushed them.

Canon NAILED that adapter (and they could and they knew they had to) and there's very little credit given for it. All my EFs and EF-Ss work as well or BETTER on the R than they do on any of my other Canon bodies.

There is no limit to how well future bodies can see AF and attempt to drive older lenses, speaking their native protocol. This isn't like Sony bodies talking to Canon lenses with an interpreter slowing down and confusing the talk. The only permanent limit is the AF motor speed play in the lenses that may need a reverse of direction for final adjustment.

What you are reporting seems to be true for static subject use, especially in poor light and/or high open f-ratios. For following active subjects around at f/2.8 - f/5.6 with AIServo in good light, people don't seem to be quite as impressed. It would be nice if newer DSLRs could transform between EVF and OVF, and have R-like sensor AF and DSLR-OVF AF, each used when it is best for the context; both through the viewfinder. Rear LCD for narrow fields of view, hand-held, is a disaster.

I'm sure I'll buy some RF lenses over time as I commit further to the platform (and I am 100% committed to this platform), but right now, I have very little motivation or real incentive to start replacing anything I have. It's worth noting, I believe, that all of my glass is G1. I don't own any G2s or G3s aside from my two extenders.

Going to a higher MP count or to AF that is better for your situations is worthwhile, even without upgraded glass. Upgrading glass is an opportunity, not a sensor-created necessity. An old lens with more veiling glare and softer image corners still gives better results when you increase your pixel count from lower than 30MP.

First try at flying birds. What a difference trying to shoot these Red Tails with the R. This will require a ton of practice over the 1D MKIV... The shutter lag you see in the viewfinder is strange to say the least. I am using the 2X II converter with the 100-400.

I have to say the mirrorless cameras are cleaner then my DSLR 1DX, but in the same sense I like to compare cameras in steps.

Remember when you got your first HD TV from SD to HD, now that was a FULL STEP. But when I look at the pictures from a mirrorless vs a DSLR it is only
a half step difference better but not a full step.

The AF is fine. I've been using the expand AF with the four points and it locks on quickly and stays locked. My tracking sensitivity is set to 1, and the other two are set at 0. I used these settings based on a forum post I read somewhere. It seems to be working. I'll probably be posting more very soon since I just finished shooting one game today and likely another two before the weekend is done.

I've been getting more and more used to the "stuttering" in the EVF when taking multiples shots in servo. When comparing to my shooting style when I had the 7d2, much less spray and pray but definitely more keepers. I'm actually quite enjoying using the R!
