Hi everyone, I’m new to POTN and have been reading this thread for a short time (and the R5 one) with great interest and have finally read all posts. I thoroughly enjoyed my daily lockdown read in Ireland along with the fabulous photos posted, as I agonised over the jump from DSLR to mirrorless. I think I’m finally ready to take the plunge and buy the R6. Could anyone recommend which adapter to get between the control ring and the basic adapter?

Welcome! I went with the standard Canon adapter. Cost was 1 factor. Another was I was not sure if I would use the ring very much. I’ve not used it with the RF24-105, but that’s just me.

I really like the control ring adapter on the R but with the R6 having the extra wheel on the back, I don't find I use it much, have it set to white balance which is handy. If you shoot with standard lenses it is easy to use but with a big heavy wildlife lens that requires both hands to support the rig, it's less accessible.

Thank you for your reply, Duckster. I’ll get the control ring, but like you, it will probably be a while before I unock it’s full potential. I sense a steep learning curve ahead!

Thanks for your info. I didn’t consider the accessibility.

That is what I have found. I keep slowly trying new things as I go.

I have to get used to it when shooting Aperture Priority, since I change lens aperture which the wheel.

Made my photography return after buying a Canon R6, I'm in love with this camera. It's a huge upgrade from the 7D2 and the EVF while I'm still getting used to it, it's unbelievable how nice it is. I put the IBIS to work with a few panning shots but stopped after a few shots because hot laps was getting very interesting with track conditions. Took this one at 1/125th shutter speed, I still need to get better as a photographer at panning but for a non IS lens I couldn't have asked for a better result. The ISO performance as well is amazing, never would have dreamed of having useable shots at 12800 ISO but here I am using it and not being upset at what I get from it.
