My buddy's daughter was in a local play. This was first attempt at high ISO action shots. I think the camera did a great job. Obviously, at 25600 IS, the shots begin to fall apart a little, but still usable in my opinion. I'm sure if I were a little better in lightroom, I could have cleaned these up a bit more. If you click the image, there's a flickr gallery with more images.

Shooting electronic shutter (so it's silent) is a pain in the butt because I don't want to shoot at 20 frames per second, but there is no slower option. Weeding thru 3,000 images sucks.

Another couple of shots from a recent trip to Honfleur in France. A beautiful lively town.

First of all, great shot. Very nicely done. I own and love the 135 L but recognized often a not so creamy bokeh on my R6 as I was used to it on my DSLRs. And I learned that it has to do with the EFCS wich is standard shutter mode. At 1/1000 or faster and wide open aperture your bokeh balls are cutted of if you are not using mechanical shutter. Now I saw your picture and recognized it too. Just wanted to share this information in case you haven't heard about it. Heres a short video: https://youtu.be/LQTar​Mu_y6Y (external link)

Hi everyone,
I’m shooting with Canon R6 and Canon RF 100 F 2.8 L Macro is USM lens, but when I download the image into my
I-phone via Canon Connect, the image information sayings that the photo was taken with a Ef 100mm f2.8 L macro.
It’s doing the same thing with the RF 50MM f1.8 STM, but not with the RF 16mm f2.8 STM

You could do a search in the EXIF of the image files to see if the EF is mentioned. If it is, it is the camera that will need a firmware update; if not, then that program has a bug in it that needs to be reported, or you need to update the Canon Connect software. If the software is old, it may make some pre-RF assumptions.

This is a spectacular shot. It’s nice and sharp! Is this one shot or multiple? I use the same lens when I go hiking and don’t think I’ve manage to get a shot that sharp.

> "Goodbye MFA", though; that is one of the biggest joys of mirrorless.

Really hoping this breathes new life into my Sigma (Non-Art) 50mm

You will most likely be disappointed. I know I was. I bought the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM (the Non-Art) way back, and used it on my 6D. But getting focus right required a lot of MFA and still it never got really good. Even after MFA the focus would be off depending on the distance to the subject, so it got a lot of shelf-time.
The I bought the R, and thought more or less exactly as you in the quote. And at first it really did seem like the lens could finally live up to its potential.
..but then I noticed that all the images were ~1-1.5 stops underexposed. I tried adjusting all kinds of camera settings, but only overexposing what I saw in the EVF would solve it and obviously this ended up being even more annoying than the somewhat schizophrenic focusing it had on my 6D. I googled it, and apparently it is an issue caused by the reverse engineering Sigma has done to get the lens talking with the camera. Apparently it disguises itself a another lens, and that throws off the metering in the camera.
When I got my R6, I hoped it would be better, but unfortunately the issue persisted, so I ended up selling the Sigma.

I've been playing with an old Yashica Yashinon 50mm DX f/1.7. It's an M42 mount lens that I've attached to my Canon R6. I can't complain too much about the images that the combination is giving me and I feel like I'm getting better at manual focus. I don't know how people did it back before autofucs was a thing. lol.

Beautiful shots. My favourite is the first one. I love the curve of the lines with the waves of colour blending, almost like a brush stroke.

Interesting. I have a pre-Art one, too, but I don't think I've tried it with the R-series cameras I have. It's too bad that the cameras don't have the ability to recognize a lens and apply a user bias to settings like EC, or lens corrections, or focal lengths, but if most of the issues are with non-OEM lenses, that removes the incentive for Canon to implement it. If the focal length is wrong, the pitch/yaw correction in the IBIS will be wrong, too. If the reported FL is too short, it will just under-correct and correct somewhat, but if it is too long, the motion will be over-compensated and reproduced in the opposite direction. If you use a contact-less adapter like the Hoage (less yucky than tape, IMO!), you can dial in the focal length yourself, but then you have no camera control of aperture or AF.

I agree. Canon isn't interested in anyone making lenses for their bodies, except themselves, and I can't really say I blame them

Really? How? I have a bunch of Lensbaby lenses, they all appear without focal length and aperture (because the are of course manual lenses). It would be a big help if I were able to dial in that I was now using the Edge 35mm or Edge 50mm. Especially when trying to sort through a lot of pictures to figure out which lens wsas used.
