A quick test of the eye AF of my wife while she was walking around in the kitchen. Works pretty good.

Not bad at ISO 12800 and edited a little. No raw support yet is a drag for sure, I hope ACR gets updated quickly.

Good looking puppy!

Have you tried using the latest version of Canon's DPP software for your raw files?

Using DPP, I combined these two images, along with 13 others focused in-between, to "focus stack" and create a composite image that I'll show in the next post. A neat feature...

The result of focus stacking (Canon calls it "compositing")....

Very nice. “Compositing” isn’t just for macro. This is such a handy feature. Would love to see more examples when you have time.

Which lens were you using?

It doesn't create the stacked image in camera, but getting a set of bracketed images is really easy. These orchids are on two branches arching towards the camera, about seven inches front to back. I did a 20 shot group at f/5.6, but I think it would have worked with fewer. Below it are single shots at f/5.6 and f/16 for comparison.

24-105 RF. Just learning about the feature. It's kind of interesting.

Ken & Tom...excellent examples of the RP version focus stacking. I first saw a demo of this on a macro shot, but clearly you've shown that its not just for macro work.

Went to B&H yesterday on my lunch break. Wanted to feel the RP in my hands. No question, for me, the "pinky grip" (what the sales lady calls it) is needed for my big hands. The touch and drag AF was a bit of a...ahem...drag. I decided to try the R touch and drag and it was way more responsive.

Anyways, here are a couple of sample pics (customer and the sales lady) with the RF 24-105. Shots are tights because of the security strap on the camera. BTW, love being able to change the ISO on the lens control ring.

Based on reviews, and given Canon only has one DPAF system right now that constantly gets better, I suspect it is the same if not better. Also I noticed that Canon fixed something that bugs me on the EOS R and M50... the size of the AF box can now be set to small in AI Servo, instead of it going to the 4x larger box. That is a pretty big thing for me. With that one change, coupled with focus bracketing, this makes the RP substantially more compelling to me than the R. I will watch accounts of this from others, and hope to see a firmware update to allow this in the future perhaps. Supposedly the R and 5D4 may be getting focus bracketing via firmware in the future.

After a one year hiatus, I'm pleased to be back with Canon and back to full frame!

My history is 400D - 60D - 6D then a Sony a6300 (with decent prime lens) and now back to Canon with the RP, it feels completely natural to be back after a year struggling and being uncomfortable with the Sony, spec/pixel chasers are right to chase other gear but after 2 hrs with the RP I already feel like I'm getting my photography mojo back.

The RP could be the perfect compromise in size, it is super light, but still feels decent quality (size was the driver for trying Sony). Initially I just have an adaptor and 50 F1.8 STM, but I hope to add RF24-105 and RF35 soon (mainly for control ring) - I hope the balance works ok with heavier glass. Autofocus seems great so far Flippy/touch screen is a ripper, EVF great.

I'll post some images once I get some daylight to play properly.
