MatthewK, have you shot with 7Dii? I'm asking because my R blows the 7Dii out of the water (AF accuracy and IQ) for birding too (both static and BIF). I just wonder if 90D is so much better than 7Dii??

My 7Dii only beats my R in a couple of areas, initial grab from OOF (including re-acquiring lost subject) and FPS.

I feel like I should be keeping my 7Dii for the AF performance but the reality is that I haven't found myself wanting to use it in preference to the R.

No, I never use spot focus for tracking, always centre point and helpers or 9 point. But I hear a lot about the EOS-R not locking on to small relatively distant birds, which should not be an issue for spot af. My 7DII with 400DOII+1.4ex locks on immediately in spot af.

The R locked locked on to these every time.

Is this camera ever configurable. For each C1-3 you can customize viewfinder and screen viewing options. This also applies for playback. Nice to clean all the clutter up.

I just discovered the Touch and Drag AF which also has to be be set up in each C1-3. Who needs a joystick. Really helps with initial AF point selection in zone AF. I'm sure this was all talked about in this thread but I'm late to the game. Lot's of pages to read. I guess I should be glad it is pouring rain again all day so I have time to do this.

My menus (green) is filling up. Do you think the Canon engineers decided to have some fun and not list the "items to register" in alphabetical order on purpose? Just like drive through car washes. I swear the person that goes inside to clean always moves the seat as far forward as possible. Even the tall ones.

Been a good long while since I covered a church wedding. They had a mix of spot light colors on the ceiling, but it was reasonable. Brought in two small lights and umbrellas on stands for photos that were apart from the ceremony.

I just ordered an EOS R yesterday and RF 24-105 to go with it.

Replacing a 5d mk iii and Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 (IS quit working).

Hope I enjoy the change.

Nice work everyone

Here is a few shots from last night. I am happy to report that the recent update to my Godox X1T (v27) fixed the ISO issue with my EOS R. I took about 200 shots and i did not get a single jump. So i am 90% sure its all good now. I will keep testing for 100% self assurance but happy to see it not jump ISO. It happened almost all the time prior to the update. And the recent R update is awesome too..

Please excuse the nebula overlay. I was experimenting with it and i am iffy about it.

That lighting looks fantastic.

I think you will really like it. A bit of an adjustment especially coming from the 5D3 but the AF is and programing options are really cool. I've been fine tuning every day. I'm using the the new Fv mode and set up C1-3 modes. For C3 and it is set up for AI Servo, zone AF and Initial AF for face recognition - set to Auto. If I press the AF-ON multiple AF points come on. If it sees an eye it all points disappear and it hones in on it. If I put my thumb on the LCD I can place the AF point to where I want it and it will track peoples heads and eyes. It was tracking people on the television last night. :lol: I couldn't believe it.

The LCD has a Touch and Drag option to control moving the AF point/points around so up don't need a joystick. There are buttons marked with arrows that do that as well.

The Fro has a pretty decent video for starting out. I picked up a few things watching it. He skips through things that aren't critical. Ignore his ads.

As soon as we get some decent weather I'm going to check out that crop feature with my 400 DO and 2X. I've fun with that combo on my 7D2.

Out with the astronautical society for "Shoot the Moon" night. Bonus - Got to shoot some of the old consoles on displays in the space flight museum located where we shot . . .

The moon shot includes Saturn to the right . . . Moon shot was with Sigma 150-600 C lens at F7.3.

Please post some images! I have that combo also, and am on the verge of getting an EOS-R...
