I was looking to order the RRS L bracket, it looks like it will work ok with the rear lcd. What do you all think? http://www.reallyright​stuff.com/Canon-EOS-R-Order (external link)

This design is quite similar to the one that Jeff and I were discussing in the following posts. POST 18817092 POST 18817097 That design definitely limits screen movements.

The one in the following posts looks like it addresses the screen articulation issues. POST 18817086 POST 18817143 POST 18817155

I have literally read this entire thread over the last while (ok, there were segments I skimmed). I'm sure I annoyed some of you with the number of times I Liked some posts with pictures I liked.

Wifey and I are going to Hawai'i in a few days for a long weekend to recon the course of a race she's doing in December. I am lusting over the pics all of you have taken, and the size of the R would be a lot more convenient than my 5D3 and the quality much higher than my SL1. And it would let me play with the new-generation sensor and a tilty-flippy screen. And the wifi/BT uploads would be nice. And I've never done MFA so I'm sure my lenses are leaving something on the table.

My concern, really, is the interface. If I bought it today, would I be able to use it effectively on Friday? Realizing I'm far from expert as-is, so the bar for what I'd consider acceptable isn't that high. And I'm assuming I'd need to keep my 5D3 for sports shooting, but I don't want to wait and see what the next R is and I assume a more sports-oriented R would cost about what the Z7 does, which is more than I want to spend right now.

Anyone want to nudge me over the edge?  :p

Oh, and that upcoming RF 24-240 seems like just the ticket for a single lens travel kit for visiting the grand-in-laws in HK. I made the mistake of just taking my phone the first time.

Can't find it via search engines...
How is 50L EF on R? Anyone have tried it? Any AF issues?
I know this lens wasn't working well with inferior 5D MKII AF.

PS: Found the answer here:

It's the same way with everything. I build computers for my family, and it tends to come in batches over a year or two every decade. The last ones built in a cycle are much better than the first. They're all much better than off-the-shelf though, as your tables clearly are.

I hear ya LonelyBoy…

I would say if you can shoot a camera the EOS R will be so easy you'll wonder why you didn't switch back in October…


I can only tell you what I have found and you can take it and make the camera your own.

It has been frustrating mostly here on POTN…. outside of that the camera is very good. I am completely enjoying the experience with the R.

Just FYI, some long running threads you may not be aware of;

"The Knife Thread" https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=18816563

"Post your Gun Shots here" https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=18817413


Of course EOS R images belong here as well, for the knives I just wanted to point out the other options.

However, we do ask that images involving firearms go into the the thread linked above.
On an international forum where attitudes can vary dramatically from region to region, it is hard for the subject matter not to invite a political debate. (which will be systematically deleted per our rules)
When the thread above is used, no one will be surprised to find a subject matter that they would otherwise want to avoid or engage in debate about.

Thanks for understanding.

OK so I got full size files today

The face detection works perfectly on this EOS R. It really is perfect for a studio camera where a dual card requirement for something LIKE A WEDDING IS NOT AS CRITICAL.

These are straight off files. Nothing done' Good glass used, Both shot with Canons 85mm 1.4

Facial found face very easily and on the window shot put focus on the forward eye area

so Yeah impressed with this for studio work. Slower movements and changing poses it works perfect

These are ready to go for Final editing. Impressed for a straight off file.

On a side note I purchased it from Best Buy where they matched Office Depot’s price of $2070 and they still gave me the lens adapter for free with the body.

Really, REALLY, really want to thank you for posting this. I've been eyeing the R for a bit and was excited to see that Best Buy matched this Office Depot offer. I cruised over to my local BB yesterday and they honored the same! WOOOOOoooooo.

With the price difference, I just picked up an EF 50mm f/1.8 STM for $125 just to have something to play around with until I decide what glass to dive into first.

10 years ago or so, I owned a 5dMkII / 24-70 / 70-200 - but sold them all when I needed some cash. :-( Now I"m BACK IN BABY! Time to start at the bottom and work my way back up.

Seriously, thanks again for saving me $200 :-D

Yes.

Took me no more than 2 days to get the basics down, program buttons, etc. On top of that, you have what, 4-6 hour plane ride? Plenty of time to sort it all out and skim the manual after you’ve been playing with it.

Awesome. I just ordered it - MrsLonelyBoy (that name is rather outdated now) said "you know you're going to get it eventually, so just buy it now and enjoy it now". I love that girl. With my Amazon card I got 5% off and don't need to kick myself for missing the Office Depot sale, and it should be here Tuesday with a day to spare. Got the R body, 24-105 separately (in case I decide to just stick with the adapter until some other lenses come out), and the CR adapter.

Is there a particular SD card that's recommended?

And I wish it were only 4-6 hours; it'll be 8.5 from Dallas. And I'll be woozy from Valium. Maybe I should start looking at it online.
