First time I've tried BIFs since I updated camera firmware. Either Canon made a noticeable improvement to servo tracking or I've improved my photo skills:-P
Both photos were with High-Speed shutter enabled

Has anybody played with the R on a Ronin S yet? I've just been lazy and haven't really hooked it up and played with it but I understand that after the last Ronin S update, there are signs of hope running as a 1DX Mk II. I'm actually more interested in using it for high-def panoramas than anything else. All I really need is shutter actuation for pano mode, though video with focus would certainly be ideal. I've read that the record button now works in video recording so I'm guessing it works for photos also.

Guess I need to quit being lazy and just take 30 minutes to play with it.

Your post reminded me about the firmware update.

I was scratching my head for what cable, then read the directions about the SD Card. I was hesitant wondering if I should do it, because I leave tomorrow to photograph a wedding this weekend. But I figured it would either work and load or not do it. Anyhow, the body updated and seems good to go.

After staring at the ports on the side though, I think I'd need another cable to tether someday to my computer. No big need right now. But the cord end looks different on the cable hanging for my 5DS and the 5D mk iii I had.

First shot from my RF 24-105. Thanks for the help guys!
Lilly wishes I would put the camera down and chase her with the sock.

If you are talking about IS on the RF24-105, it has it.

Thanks Charles I grew up with IBIS, and saw that as preference.
Yes, realise the lens has it.
Probably an unreasonable bias on my behalf.

Here's a little PSA.

Are you shooting with Sigma lenses on your EOS R? I do. I have the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 and 85 f/1.4 ART lenses and I had a little success when I first go the R. Last week, I did headshots for my niece (she does acting in a local theater) and when I got back to my computer, I had less than 50% hit rate with the 70-200, though on camera they looked ok. I then offered to reshoot them for her, but planned on usin the 85.

This also prompted me to research Sigma issues with the R and I found this:

1. With SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses, the Digital Lens Optimizer located within the in-camera Lens Aberration Correction function cannot be used. Therefore, please set the Digital Lens Optimizer to [OFF] before shooting.

When the Digital Lens Optimizer is switched [OFF], but “Peripheral illumination correction”, “Chromatic aberration correction” and “Distortion correction”, located within the in-camera Lens Aberration Correction function is switched [ON], the appropriate corrections can be achieved in accordance with the optical characteristics of each lens.

http://www.northlight-images.co.uk …ility-notes-for-canon-rf/ (external link)

Turning this feature off, I did the reshoot with the 85, but figured I'd try the 70-200 at the end, and out of 9 photos, only one caught her temple. The rest were spot on.

Really nice. I had the 70-300L years ago and it's one lens I sorta regret ever selling.

It’s interesting to me to read these sentiments about the 70-300L, because mine was disappointing and as soon as I bit the bullet on a 100-400ii I had zero interest in the 70-300 and sold it. Now, mine was a well-worn copy from LensRentals (which put me off buying from them), which may explain things. But I do love my 100-400.

The depth of field was more narrow than expected ... just a few links, but the exposure came out pretty good. Just some window light through a shade.

For me - for most uses I prefer my 70-300L over my 100+400L II. Lighter, compact, equal picture quality to my eyes, locks focus more often, works more reliably on older bodies like our 60D that has real trouble with the 100-400L. Want a second 70-300L as my wife won’t give it back!

I've never had IBIS so maybe I don't know what I'm missing but I've gotten along fine with IS, even from the kayak.

I'm still trying to get my arms around somebody that grew up on IBIS and I mean that seriously. What kinds of cameras did you grow up using?
