Has anyone tried the Sigma 150-600mm 5-6.3 Contemporary on the R with one of the adapters? Wondering how the combo performed.

I use that combo quite often. No issues. Nails focus as good as with my 80D.

You have some top notch gear, so the wait should be fine.

Here's one more. This is cropped from a larger original scene. No other adjustment or sharpening.

I really really like the skin tones the R is delivering. Very realistic which is perfect for portrait work. This looks great

I really like the flip screen and focus peaking for macro and close up

These are from a concert last night shot with the RF 24-105L. The fog machine was working overtime!

These are from a concert last night shot with the EF 23-300L. The fog machine was working overtime! As a result of the smaller aperture and fog it didn't focus as quickly as the RF 24-105L. The out of focus areas are smoother than I expected.

Absolutely hate the EOS R. What a poor example of an expensive mirrorless camera. If it were priced around 25% of its current value then it would be worth a try.

Then don't buy one. Problem solved.

What a well thought, clearly articulated, cogent review. Very persuasive, thank you for your input and good day. :rolleyes:

I love the EOS R! So glad Canon made a worthwhile mirroless camera. Yeah, spending $3300 to get the body, control ring adapter, grip and extra batteries kinda was a tough pill to swallow, but this camera rocks compared to my 6D.

Seeing it out-performs the 5D mk iv in low light situations for 2/3 the cost, with more lens choices and controls, I'd rate that more of a myth. The EOS R cleans the 5D mk iii's clock too from what I've tested.

Your hate for it may be accurate. Whether you've put one to the test, I doubt.

The EOS R can use a few refinements, but I find it worth the price tag. Looking forward to future models too.

My only debate is whether to go for this first version or wait till the "MkII" version comes out . . .
