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).

Another vote for the RF 24-105mm, good range great balance.

I use the spider holster and I can hold a 1dxmk2 all day long if I had too.

I looked up Spider Holster at B&H Photo and there are several different options ranging in price from $49 through $150. I'm wondering which you would recommend for a 5DIV with 100-400L IS II? Thanks! :-)

The spider pro kit is what I own. The V2 version is something of a new creation in the belt design.

I also use an op/tech pro neck strap. I remove the neoprene neck strap when I shoot one camera. When i shoot two bodies I use the neck strap and the camera on my hip i go tetherless.

The op/tech pro neck strap reduces weight on the neck by a distributing the weight more evenly. The beauty of that strap is you can remove the neoprene and just have a nice loop strap on the camera.

The spider holds the camera 100% in the same spot all of the time. No guessing so you can squat/kneel on the ground and the camera/lens never flops around.

Using the spider years ago my 1dmk3 and 100-400 was a piece of cake to use for 8-12 hour events documenting cars.

For those of you using Godox triggers with the EOS R, I have a solid workaround with only two downsides. First, you loose HSS. Second, you loose (some of) the simulated exposure in the EVF (a positive in some situations).

Whatever is causing the issue of resetting the ISO to AUTO (1600) is coming through from the four non-trigger pins in the hotshoe. By covering those pins, the bug goes away.

I've experimented with two solutions. First, you could cover the rear four pins by placing a thin sheet of plastic between the hotshoe and the trigger. Or, if you are paranoid about that like I am, use any cheap eTTL passthrough shoe and place the plastic between the upper hotshoe and Godox trigger foot.

Or, buy something like this: https://www.amazon.ca/​gp/product/B004G47I7O/ (external link)

That makes the Auto ISO issue go away.

It also makes the wake-up feature go away. So you have to set the trigger to stay awake. I get about 300+ images before I need to replace the enloops (rechargeable AA's) in mine.

The camera also looses the Exposure Preview function if ambient is too low, because the EOS R cannot detect the trigger. In studio, I don't like that so I turn the exposure preview function off and the EVF then shows me a consistently well lit screen for composing the image. But, and here is the great part. When mixing flash with ambient, you can do what I truly deeply wish had have been possible from the very beginning - you can see the Exposure Preview for the ambient, while also using a trigger. So, want to see where the ambient shadows fall so you know where your subject should face/pose/move? Want to tweak exposure so rim light is perfect, hair glowing, nothing clipping? NO PROBLEM! Then just add flash as needed. I cannot see how Canon overlooked this, but suspect it was because so few people would benefit. I am sure a feature like that will make it into a Pro R body.

Anyway, there's the workaround for now. When I need HSS, I'll go back to my other failsafe - I shoot with image preview on in the EVF. There's a setting so you can see the last image until you press the shutter half way. It gives me the chance to review the image for a half-second or less to confirm that the exposure isn't blown. Then I move on.

Hope this helps someone while we wait for Godox to hopefully update firmware to fix the bug...

Thank you so much for the information. I've been having a lot of trouble with the weight of my camera(s) and lens(es) as I have arthritis in my neck. The Spider kit seems like it would be very helpful.

Agree about the Spider Pro. I have the double version and carry a 1DXII with 24-70mm one side and 5D4 with 70-200 f/2.8 II on the other (I do swap lenses at times but the 70-200 on the 1DX is magic but heavy). I've got a 12 hour wedding coming up next weekend and will use this combo. Highly recommended.

I've been a spider holster user when they first came out. The 3 lock buck is working well but when they first started the company the first generation belt buck failed and i dropped my 1dm3 and 35L. Smashed the 1dkm3 and needed upper magnesium body sway!!!!!!!!

However now the product is rock solid. This thing is bullet proof!!

I like to use the op/tech neck strap as it's my primary camera on my neck. The spider holster during events holds my 70-200 or whatever longer lens is suitable.

That's my nightmare scenario! The belt buckle locks pretty well. I think they have brought out a new plate for the foot on longer lenses but I just use a pin in it. I do check its tightness throughout the day. As you say, the whole thing is pretty solid but I end up like the end of a house with two cameras! I don't like to have anything around my neck.

First my shots on R. Very very nice feelings about control and easy way to get sharp and right exposured pictures.

Good JPG. This shot unedited, only add my preset for RAW on this cam-jpg and here we go. Easy and fast. RF 24-105 pleased with not bad bokeh and sharpness. I thought bokeh would be worst, but I'm wrong. :)

But can someone give me advice about best settings for sharpness in-camera Picture styles ? 3 different sliders and I dont know, how to configure it for clear sharp images.

Somehow that looks like a porcelain miniature. And I continue to be amazed by the images from the 135L, especially considering how many people knock it for being "old and uncompetitive".

Of course, if you are looking at web images, you're not going to see differences in lens sharpness, unless people are showing 100% crops and stating what camera or sensor was used, and that they didn't use extra software sharpening. All we're going to see in small web images is mostly composition, and large-scale lens characteristics like bokeh, and assuming they aren't corrected in software or firmware, lens distortion and contrast or egregious losses of quality in the corners of an image.

I think it looks like focus hit in front of the animal. Based on grass and tree leaves. If it hit on the face area, would it look different ?
