Interesting thanks,

Do you feel it still focused properly at near minimum focus range compared to maximum? I realize you do a lot of birds, so you felt that the long lenses were just as good on your R tracking a BIF at various distances than native EF body?

Very best,

Yes they all focused fine near and far. The R tracked very well, the issues are the slide show effect and the slower fps. I have managed many bif shots with it, but it is no 1dx by far. I actually felt like the R tracked a bit better then the 1dx Mark II but it just can't keep up with moving subjects like the 1dx series can. I would never say do not buy it for flight work but if that is your main goal then you may be better off with a 1dx Mark II/ III or maybe the R5 ( to be determined). For the occasional flight work and more still work, I think it is a great camera.

I purposely only took the EOS R to Texas for a birding trip and it did really well

Thanks,

I"m definitely not looking at it as a dedicated birding body, most just seeing the extremes that it will see if used as my 1D body is getting old and my Fuji system (mirrorless) has been great. I just still have a lot of long glass in EF and there's no equivalent in Fuji so keeping two systems makes sense and I really have enjoyed mirrorless so I'm happy to see Canon finally come over. Just curious how the R will be for this with adapted glass. The long glass is actually all that has kept me on Canon and great AF. But I'm coming from some old gear at this point. The R is probably better than my 1D3 at all AF situations. And then there's the whole adapted lens thing, since my Canons are never about size/space savings.

Looks like you used the R + adapter + TC + 400mm. That felt pretty good? Curious how you felt about it tracking/panning with that pelican.

Very best,

Heya,

Any solid experience using EF -> RF adapter with respect to performance with EF glass? Feel like it nails focus the same? Better? Worse? AF speed take a hit?

I only have one of the lenses on your list - Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8 (II - unless you specifically mean the original version?) - and I would say that with one-shot AF (or AI Servo used to combat slight movement rather than intense action), the performance in terms of speed and accuracy on the R is at least as good as I experienced on the 5D4. The same goes for the EF 35 f/2 IS USM. With my older design Canon lenses (e.g. EF 85 1.8, EF 100 f/2, EF 70-200 f/4 IS USM) I'd say speed is about the same, but accuracy is up. With my Tamron 45, I'd say speed is slightly increased (in that the AF is more decisive) and the accuracy is very noticeably up. FWIW, I recently got a Sigma 50 Art and on the R I would say it's not far off the EF 35 f/2 IS USM in terms of speed and accuracy - I was very pleasantly surprised by that.

Obviously when you consider AI Servo for action then the assessment gets harder to make because other factors come into play, but my feeling is still that the use of the adapter does no harm whatsoever.

Thanks, that's very interesting and good to know. I imagine these cameras are better at nailing focus with F1.2, F1.4, F1.8, F2, etc, lenses due to the focus type compared to having to calibrate (and still be off) with the older bodies.

Very best,

A pure guess, I would say 40ft or so. I also cropped in a bit. I could get closer but they are starting to nest so I do not want to disturb them.

Nice lens and nice work. Another one I regret selling. I also had the Macro Twin Lite.

I do not own any of your lenses but anything I adapted worked seamlessly. This includes using extenders.

This (for me as well) . . .
