The last few years I have shot in excess of 180,000 per year on many different cards and cameras.. This is my second EOS R.. If the $200 card gets it done for you I say good on you. But I would not say the Sandisk Extreme pro 128g is a lesser quality card.




I never said this was the BEST SD card you can buy. I simply said that it is what works for me. I never had any trouble with scan disk SD card.

I agree with this as well.. I have 3 dslr bodies (550d, 5d2 and 5d3) and I can say that all my EF lenses out perform on the R compared to the other bodies. They seem to be a lot faster..

My list of EF lenses are:
50mm f1.2L
85mm f1.8
100mm Macro
135mm f2L (Beast)
24-70mm f2.8L
70-200mm f4L non IS with a x1.4 extender
70-200mm f2.8IIL

I also own, tried and work excellent are the 18-55mm kit lens that came with my 550d. It automatically crops the sensor to x1.6 since its an EF-S lens. The Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 which you would have to crop the sensor in order to use the entire range of this lens on this camera or leave it set to full frame and use it as a 15ish -16mm lens.

Awesome Trillium.

Is that native to your region, or some cultivated variety?

There's a red petal one out west here, but the petals sort of twist upward instead of outward flat like the ovatum species in our forests.

I think there was a special deal on those cards recently at Adorama for 2 x cards @ less than $50

The 100mm macro non L version with the adaptor is about 1" shorter than the 70-200mm f4 non IS. In my camera it is well balanced due to the battery grip i recently purchased. Prior to the grip, if you back track my posts about this camera, i hated the feel of this camera as it felt extremely unbalanced with all my EF lenses. I had this same problem with my 550d.. it was just too small in my hand with my pinky hovering at the bottom. After the grip it just feels much better for me as i have all my fingers gripping the camera taking away that awkward front heavy feeling away.

It's a native, Trillium erectum, also known as Wake-robin or Stinking Benjamin because of its strong smell

Haven't checked in here in a while, glad to see all of the activity.

Adapted lenses: flawless in every way. I have had zero issues using all of my lenses. I said it early on in this thread: the 50L is a rockstar on the EOS R. The 135L and 85L f/1.4 are also exemplary, and my 24-70 f/2.8 II basically lives on this camera as my family documentary rig.

The things I love the most about this camera:

1) WYSIWYG has drastically reduced the number of photos I delete in post. No more binned photos from under/over exposure because it's too easy getting it perfect in camera. I have EC tied to the control ring adapter, which is just an awesome feature. It used to be that only the 1-series got metering tied to spot-AF, but that's really not a big deal anymore when a quick twist of the control ring can get your photo just right.

2) The sensor, and how easy it is to work with in post. I'm loving the look I'm getting in photos, with luscious colors and great detail. Noise control is exemplary, for the most part I don't hesitate to shoot at any ISO value. They say it's just a tweaked 5D4 sensor, but as a former 5D4 owner I can say that the results from the R look and feel completely different. Both are great, they're just different, and the one great characteristic they share is how malleable the files are when making big changes in post.

Now, for my negatives:

I use the R for everything besides bird photography. For birding, I'm finding it inadequate because it's AF responsiveness is just too slow, and that performance with extenders is dodgy. The AF seems to start hunting too easily in brushy environments, and initial lock on with small, erratic birds is a challenge. I can see the R being suitable for non-moving, perched birds or shooting from a blind when things are more static, but in run-and-gun situations in low light, woodsy settings where quick reflexes and timing are needed to capture a flitting Warbler or Chickadee, the R just doesn't cut it.

The touch bar: it was a nice try by Canon to introduce an innovative feature, but I'm not a fan. It's too easy to accidentally bump it and change a setting, or when you put that 2-second lock activation on it, it's too slow to make quick changes.

Canon fixed the small point in servo, so that's no longer a thing, but Canon isn't giving us new features, they're patching the camera to bring it up to basic standard.

-------

Overall, it's a fine camera that's rounding into form, and it's super fun to shoot with! The RF lenses look sensational, especially that 70-200. I'm really interested in the 35mm f/1.8 for general use because it's so small, and my wife wants a macro lens for her projects. She actually uses the R more than I do, and recently proclaimed it to be "her camera" :)

One possible explanation is that they are metering differently. What I've seen from equally-exposed RAWs shows slightly grainier noise character with the R than the 5D4. The latest Canon sensors since the 80D have more highlight headroom relative to externally-metered middle grey, which is why their "measured ISO" in DxOMark (~64) is lower than the earlier sensors (80 or mid-90s). Perhaps now that the R series are WYSIWYG, Canon feels that it is safer to give more exposure for the same ISO? So, your actual ISO may be lower than that of the setting by 1/3 stops or so.

Here's some photos so as to stick to the original mission of the thread. When I said it was inadequate for birds, I didn't mean that it can't be used for it ;)

The reviewer Dustin Abbot demonstrated the same thing in his side-by-side shots b/w the 5D4 and R. Slightly more noise in exchange for slightly more detail. Can't remember if there was an exposure difference though, I'll have to rewatch the video. Whatever the case, I enjoy the aesthetics of both sensors.
