Hey all! I have a question for you.

Looking through the images in this thread I’ve noticed there aren’t many sports or action photos.

I mostly shoot sports and right now the 90D is my primary camera. The camera is amazing but I need a full frame for real estate. A lot of the houses for sale in my area are small rental cabins….

Anyways…..

Here’s my question. Can the AF system track well for sports? I don’t really care about it only having 5FPS when using AI servo focusing. My 90D does 10FPS and at times i’m like there are just too many photos in the burst.

The R6 I know will be almost perfect but it is more Than I really want to spend because I’m not really looking to make much money. It’s just a little side hustle.

Can the auto focus system keep up? My main shooting is motocross and I only use L series lenses.

Thank you!!!!

You would be better with an R6 or R5. The original EOS R is not really set up for action. The other 2 cameras have a far superior auto focus system. The EOS R is a great camera, other than that.

It "can" do birds in flight, as seen early on in this thread, but it definitely takes practice. I tried the R for that but the 80D is much better suited for that. I kept the 80D specifically for wildlife.

The "L" series refers to Canon's designation for highest quality. Of larger consideration is the lens mount. The EF mount will be the mount on your 90, but the new mirrorless cameras use the "R" mount. There is an adapter which works well, but the native mount on the mirrorless cameras is the "R" mount.

Yes I am fully aware of what L series lenses are and the difference in mount.
As well as the rings needed to use the EF lens on the RF mount.

I'll second this on the birds in flight and practice. I have use the Sigma 100-400mm with various settings on the R and have had mixed results.

THanks! Those are great shots.

I mostly shoot this kind of action in the photo below...
Being that I just spent over $10K building my bike, I need to be careful on cost.
That is why I am asking about the R to replace my 90D.

Time, patience and observing are keys to birding/wildlife. I believe sports are similar - watching and anticipating. I spent a month up in Maine last summer and after some days I was able to tell from their flight pattern when the Osprey were getting ready to dive for their meal. I took tons of shots but maybe came out with about 10-12 shots like above. Even with its limitations (compared to the R5 & 6) i'm sure you can get the shots you want with some practice and adjustments. BTW, that's a nice action shot! :-)

THanks! I have been shooting Motocross for 35 years so I am definately not a beginner. Just looking to see if the AF can track well enough.
It would be a learning curve to find the sweet spot the camera likes.
Another thing is the EVF and the delays between frames might be an issue to consider, but I have not tried it to see.

I know these aren't motocross but they tracked OK with the 1.4x TC.
