Now that is an old fallen flag RR: Richmond, Fredericksburg & Petersburg. Lots of history there.

I was watching my favourite Wildlife Photographer's blogs (Andy Rouse) and his views on the EOS R and the amazing shots of tigers, elephants etc he has taken got me doing a lot of research. I've oft hankered over the Sony mirrorless cameras but since I'm invested in Canon, decided to wait and see - I didn't even know Canon had released the EOS R or RP until I watched Andy's videos recently.

I had a play in-store and the result? I sold my 5DIV and 7DII over the weekend and ordered an EOS R kit plus Control ring. I much prefer the smaller form factor and really like the new control system. I won't miss my DSLR's, I found myself using them less and less anyway due to their bulk and weight - being an amateur, hobby photographer, I don't need dual cards etc that many Pro's prefer and much of the negatives I've read will make zero difference to me. The positives, meanwhile, will get me taking the camera out more instead of my Sony RX100!

So now I'm looking forward to my new camera :)


Canon EOS R (sold 5D Mark IV & 7D Mark II) with: RF 24-105 L IS, EF 100 2.8 L MACRO IS, EF 50 1.4, EF 100-400 L IS II, Speedlite 580 EX, EF 16-35 L, Sony RX100 VI

Spent a good amount of time this past weekend with my simplified button setup. Much better feel using the camera after disabling the * button and assigning 'AF area selection' to the MF-Fn button up front. Any other small change that doesn't require speed, I use the Q menu.

Face/Eye Detect is remarkable, really loving this when trying to photograph my daughter. When she sees a camera up to my face, she sort of goes dead pan and won't react until I drop the camera away. Now, I can employ the camera away from my face, and the F/E Detect will work it's magic without me needing to have the camera up to my eye in order to manually keep an AF point on her eye. Good stuff :-)

I am loving the R paired with my Canon 85 1.4L, my keeper rate is so much better with this lens on the R than my 5D4

100% concur. The R has transformed my portrait shooting experience w/ primes, especially with the latest Eye/Face Detect. Out of habit, I'm still chimping after taking shots because of that nagging fear of missing the eye, but my mind is blown because almost every shot is in focus, with the occasional miss coming from the natural body movement of photog/subject. It's a joy to be able to not worry about this stuff, right?

Had I been there, I'd simply use my Spiderpro holster with the EOS R on one side and the 5DS on the other. Then maybe one lens in a pack, but maybe just the two.

I couldn’t imagine not owning a spider holster. I was an early adopter when they were first introduced. That was when they had an inexpensive cheap buckle system and i dropped my 1dmk3 and cracked it as it easily unfastened!!!! Great company as they paid for it to be repaired .

I’ve worn out two spider belts completely to shreds and I’m on my third one now !!!

BEST color Toyota has ever made. I have a 2016 Tacoma and just my luck they didn't carry that color forward from 2015. I was so disappointed.

Them's fighting words - Blizzard Pearl or Starfire Pearl would be my choice.

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

I was messing around with my af settings yesterday and got stuck with a circle in center of frame and can't figure out how to change it back. I guess it's time to bust out the manual. :lol:

Check your metering settings. I am not sure which one it is, but one of the settings causes a circle to appear.

question for you canon pros.

I am a canon shooter who went to nikon for 3 years d750 d850, and have now been shooting sony a7riii a9 for two years.
so it's been five years, during which, I've been shooting more than ever. so I really don't remember my 5DIII days too much.

certain events, I use aperture mode, auto ISO (with parameters lets say 100-1600), and a set min SS (let's say minimum 1/250th).
with nikon and sony, the metering is pulled from the AF point (option that I love), so I use spot metering - which is what I prefer, shoot people. so metering is pulled from the skin, and then with all the DR in the files, I can work with everything else typically.

Shooting with the Eos R right now, 50 ef 1.2L was a first love.
So I'm giving it a "go" with the 50 rf 1.2L right now! great glass!

I'm finding this metering method that I used formerly... doesn't work well with canon b/c the metering is not pulled from the AF point - unless it's center point?
is this an accurate statement?

I’m gona say yes.... I to was a spot metering lover for years.. with the R I have found it handles the whites and highlights quite well in Evaluative mode and I like the skin tones. It does skin very well. IMO
