Does anyone use FV mode? I'm finding it pretty interesting. I set up the C1-3 modes to jump between between one shot/single shooting to Servo and high speed. I re-assigned the multi function bar to change AF modes. I can't find a use for the control ring now.

Yep, works great and makes changing things quick and easy. Brilliant design idea. I couple that with having the control lock freeze those parameters so I don't accidentally change things once set.

Yes I found quite cumbersome at first missing the joystick and the big rear wheel. Much easier to work with. I should return the control ring lol. Good idea about the control lock. New to me too.

Took the RF 24-240 out the the lake yesterday had about 10 minutes of good diffused light. I am happier with the sharpness of the lens than with my inability to get DoF right on the first try. The sun broke through, which ended the session.

This image has the lens profile disabled in Lr.

NOTE: I set the EXIF to RF 24-105 in order for the focal lengths to show up and be able to add it to my gallery. Adding it to the gear database has been requested.

Well it looks like the firmware made landscapes better. Clearly it couldn’t have had anything to do with talent.

I hope it’s obvious I’m kidding. Great shot!

LOL , yes and thank you:lol:

I shoot almost exclusively in Fv. Makes me wonder why it took so long to appear now that we have it. You could take the rest of the still modes off the camera and I wouldn't miss them a bit.

Firmware updated. Did it w/o lens attached in AV mode, went fine.

Quick shot today as my cat was doing what she does best.

FV is a mystery to me! I played with it a few minutes and went back to my old habits. M for landscapes and wildlife. Tv with auto ISO and -2 2/3 EC for bands with light shows.

FV is Av, Tv and M all in 1. You use the thumb wheel to change what you are setting, then the index finger wheel to change the actual setting. Then you can set a button to reset that setting to auto, or reset everything to auto. Spend a few minutes with it - as Wilson said, it makes you wonder why it took so long for this setting to be an option.

It just changed everything. Now I feel prepared for the first outing.

I think I need to give FV another go too. I pretty much just use M and use the control ring for EC.

I stopped using BBF when I got the R because the button seemed to be in a really awkward place. Also the way the AF seemed to wander about didn't really work for me.

However, I really missed it and begrudgingly started to use BBF again. It's second nature now and, with the firmware update, I'm really glad I made the effort.
