Shoved the sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 onto the R and went outside for some snapshots. @35mm

Unfortunately my Linux box decided to not want to edit the files, open, work properly and so I pulled them to my phone. Sigh, about ready to give up trying to use Linux for workflow :(

And a little hopper :-)

I got to say, so far the lens seems to work pretty good for some close ups on the R. Quality on these images is probably meh since I used my phone to edit them.

Guess this lens is not in the database -?
18-35 f/1.8 sigma @35mm. Yup, the one for apsc sensors.

The Sigma should be in the database. I’ve posted images in different threads as recently as 3 weeks ago where it’s there.

Out of curiosity, how many of you are using the R with EF-S lenses? Other than the (obvious) reduced resolution in crop mode, do you find any other trade-offs, positive or negative?

Hmmm I'll look again. I wondered if the forum software detected the full frame camera and just showed full frame lenses.

I just used the lens as a test as I've heard the R will take the apsc lenses in crop mode. I don't think my R went into crop mode, nothing popped up that I noticed when I mounting the lens. Auto focus seemed to work ok, pretty fast.

Edit: found the lens in the database :-)

BTW
Does anyone actually use Linux to edit their photos with this camera? Something broke with adobe dng converter on my system, thought raw therapee actually supported (could actually decode) the images or perhaps darktable but darktable wouldn't open anything. Raw therapee just crashed to desktop and corrupted the image I tried to open. Both are up to date. I know darktable has an update but I couldn't build it, not was it in the repos. Sigh. Really wanted to get away from the corporate junk as much as possible but doing so basically renders my R a paper weight :cry:

I think it must have taken your picture in crop mode. Check the file size to figure it out - that is, how many pixels on each side. I don't remember exactly, but the wide side will be under 5000 pixels. Normal full frame from the R is 6720.

I don't know if this is any use, but you can use DPP to convert to a TIFF file and import that into another program.

The R didn't use crop mode when using a Tamron APS-C lens but it did vignette as expected. I read somewhere that it forces crop mode for Canon EF-S lenses but not third party lenses. Someone here had a third party APS-C lens that didn't vignette, or not much, on the R but there are probably very few like that.

There is a thread from DPreview about the R5 for shooting stills only for anyone interested in the camera.

I am a wildlife/ stills photographer and agree with previous posts.

No overheating even when shooting in 90+ degree (and sunny) summer temps. Overheating is definitely a video thing and getting too much attention.

Haven’t measured FPS, but does not seem to slow down even around 25% battery using a grip with 2 LP-E6NH. Check charge performance and make sure lens is supported at 12 FPS per the manual.

Battery life was better than rated even when I tried old LP-E6N batteries with one red bar for charge performance.

New AF is amazing.

Yup, sure did... Oh well.

Just pulled the frame up on the camera and pressed info on one of the pics and sure enough 1.6 12.48mb raw.

Didn't see any indication it switched to crop mode when I powered it up. Thought I circumvented something lol :oops:

Guessing here but isn't dcraw the program(?) that actually decodes the raw files. If so that is what you need to update, not rawtherapee or darktable. Unless they won't work with a newer version of dcraw

It could be, perhaps libraw also. I'm really not sure and can't keep track of let alone know all I need to know with this OS unfortunately.

Even tried a kernel update and it borked something else, my steam app freaked out, eventually desktop environment crashed, came back up and froze after I clicked something else, so, at least I could roll back to the previous kernel. But I wonder what else might be busted.

I did go to wine HQ and poked around, evidently a bug in 5.12 and others where having issues with dng converter. Guess 5.13 might fix. Haven't got an update pushed to my Manjaro box yet. Or maybe I need to find it and make it myself and install. Shesh... :cry:

So, weighing my options. :-|

I'm not going to say the R is the most wonderful-est camera ever, but I'm very happy with it, if anyone was thinking of buying one.... oh, wait, they all went over to the R5. Never mind.
