I think they should have withheld the RP name for the EOS R Pofessional model and called the existing RP the RJ for Junior Edition.

Jacksonville is a 90min drive for me and I've often wondered about night photos of the water and city lights.

Definitely some nice vantage points. Just have to find them, really. Friendship park is a great starting point. ;)

Again, for me, just testing things out. Can’t believe I still have this car, so many years later...my original avatar pic was taken back when I first bought a 20D in 2004 and thought it was the bomb! :lol:

Focus is on the back wheel...fyi. No corrections, just transferred to phone, cropped, and uploaded. Very easy, once paired with a phone. ;)

Works as should, and even better than on an ef mount, really. Just my humble opinion.

Was tinkering around with a lens I thought was jacked up, the 100mm f/2.8L IS macro while I was trying to pack a gear bag...

So, obviously not good composition wise, more of a snap shot but thought I would share here anyway, since It was shot with the R

Very nice.
I love these old horse and horse drawn implements, wagons etc.
That's a huge team of mules in top one. What's it pulling? Looks like an 8 wheeler.
Any photos of the wagons etc?
I started a thread ages ago but it never took off.

I used it most on the getting ready part of the event. Today proved extremely difficult to use prime lenses so i stuck with the 24-70mm

I used the 50mm prime for this look but a small room full with 20 people was not fun. I shot this in a really tight corner while both MUA where on camera left and right

They are pulling two brand new Borax trailers and a water tanker... The Old trailers are on display in Death Valley.

I was close to pulling the trigger on an R but balked at the camera start-up time – can it really be 2.1 seconds from power-on to being able to take the first shot? That's damn slow for a modern high-end camera IMHO. An "equivalent" Sony is better at 1.7 seconds, but was still one of the (many) reasons I wouldn't go down that route vs my DSLR.

My old mirrorless EOS-M mk1 was 2.7 seconds power-on to 1st shot, and that to me was painful in the extreme (I missed a lot of grab and shoot shots as a result). OK, so the R is 0.6 seconds faster, but my 80D for example is 0.5 seconds from power-on to first shot, a whopping 1.6 seconds faster than the R, but unlike a mirrorless the DSLR can be left on all the time whilst I’m waiting for the “right moment” without worrying about the battery going flat. On my old M I have to keep turning it off manually or have a very short auto power-off time set unless I want to carry a bucket of batteries with me, and yes I do set the screen to auto-off ASAP to conserve battery :-) Battery life for the M is quoted only slightly worse than the R, so I think I'd need to do the same with an R.

It's not that I have lighning fast reactions, but with a DSLR I can at least see what I'm aiming at even with the camera off, so I am ready to hit that shutter button pretty quick with a framed shot. With a mirrorless it has to have booted up before I can see anything to judge what I'm aiming at, and that's the hinderance in my comparable experience of the M.

Does anyone have any useful input on this front. Is the delay actually as much of an issue as my perception of the timing data leads me to believe?

Quoted timings are taken from Imaging Resource website review data.

Edit: There isn't anywhere within a 6hour drive of me that has one in stock that I could try (assuming they'd even let me take it out of the precious packaging - as one major specialist camera retailer in London refused to do).

Interesting numbers. I can see how it could impact some people.

For myself, the long power on cycle wouldn't be much of a problem. A much larger problem which I had not considered is the lack of an EVF with the camera powered off. I frequently frame a subject through the OVF of my 7D2 without bringing the camera to life. Of course, the simple solution is a spare battery but this assumes the standby to live time is short.

Mine takes about ONE second to start up. Once the camera has gone to sleep, pressing any button on the camera will wake it up, so by the time you have got it to your face it will be ready to shoot.

Thanks John - without the ability to see it for myself or ask some real owners I had to take the "review data" as true. I guess firmware updates may have speeded things up since the original review they did too or they are just plain wrong.

I switch to Sony few years ago due to my shaky hands I’m getting too much motion blurt with my 7d 24-105 combo even with the 18-35 combo. The ibis was a big thing for me so I thought. I don’t know what it is in the r so far even with out ibis I’m getting good keeps rate. The lens is, is better in the r.

I’m way behind, so forgive me if this has been addressed already. But catching up in the 100-400 thread, I smiled skimming 3 pages of people talking about MFA. Never have to give this a second thought anymore. :)
