Has any one used a screen protector on the r yet? The tempered glass ones... does it affect the touch sensitivity while dragging focus points? If so got a good one you recommend?

I'm using the one below. It's tactile and no impact to touch sensitivity or control. Price was also reasonable, and it comes with a second smaller protector for the top screen, which is nice.

Nice. I like the leading lines in the 3rd photo. I don't know much about moths vs. butterflies, but I think those are butterfly? Are there a lot around that garden, or did it take a while to find those?

On that 3rd photo, if you cropped the left side off slightly, like an 8 x 10 ratio, I like that even better.

This is actually in a tropical green house that's probably 30' or 40' tall. Each spring they bring in cocoons and fill the place with butterflies and some moths for exhibit. So there are butterflies and cameras everywhere in there :lol:. Pretty cool event that our kids enjoy, and dad too.

This was my first outing with the camera. Will try to share some commentary when I have a chance. But, man it's a game changer for me. Reminds me of when I switched from a flip phone to a smart phone.

Too lazy to search, but how many here have gone from a 5D4 to the R?

I'm seriously considering selling my 5D4. Mostly for the weight factor. I really want to carry a real camera with me everyday but the 5D4 is too big (not to mention too heavy) to fit nicely in my everyday backpack.

Any regrets? Any challenges? Glad you made the jump?

I sold my 5D4...

Love the R, no regrets whatsoever. I had the 5D4 and expected the R too compliment it. So happy with the R I sold the 5D4 6 weeks after buying the R.

As far as I am concerned the only thing the R gives up to the 5D4 is AFC frame rate, and dual card, neither of which are an issue for my photography. I also have an 80D and that satisfies the AFC frame rate if I do need it.


Only challenge is stock piling cash for RF lenses ;-)a

I did, but not by choice. My 5D IV got soaked in a fresh water pond.

Just out of curiosity, what is everyone's "go to" lens on their R? Personally I haven't got to the point of use I had with my 5d2 yet so I haven't got a favorite combo yet.

With my 5dmkii it was with the 24-105 f/4L is (version 1) and I've worn it's rubber ring down a bit.

I'm thinking of something to that effect for the R also or perhaps the 24-70 (was holding out hope for an is version).

You're in luck! The RF24-70/2.8 will have IS. It's been announced to come out this year, but they haven't said when.

The RF24-105 is a great lens and if the f/4 is good enough for your purposes, I'm sure you'd be happy with it.

I love a like, but feedback (including CC) is even better!

I've really been enjoying the RF 24-105mm f/4L IS. The image quality is excellent and it's a reasonable size and weight to match the EOS R's body size. Any comparable EF lens will be much longer due to the necessary EF-RF mount adapter on top of the size of the lens itself.

I haven't used the RF 24-105 but have seen a lot of impressive results from it. I myself love using the 28-70 (my only RF lens). I will likely trade in my 70-200 II for the RF version when it's released and available.

Perfectly happy with my RF 24-105. Great size and excellent image quality. ;-)a
But I must say, every one of the lenses I own give me great results, even the 50 stm 1.8.

I thought I seen something about that a while back, I'd be afraid of the price though, I could see it creeping into the 2500+ dollar mark.

Which I suppose wouldn't be too bad.
