...I suspect the control ring would be useless unless you're on a tripod - it would be a challenge to support the lens while also adjusting that ring.

I guess I can see how that can make it challenging when hand holding. The control ring on the RF lenses are further down the lens for easier reach, so should not be as much of challenge to use. Since I am always using the tripod with the 600, the control ring will benefit me.

Mike,
I'm only two weeks into my R5, and have the adaptor with control ring. I think with a little time, I will be able to easily turn the control ring with my right hand ring finger or middle finger while holding a 300mm with convertors, and/or 100-400 . Those two fingers almost touch the ring as I normally hold my camera. Have not been able to use long lens much yet. I'm using mine for exposure comp at this time. YMMV.

Great shot!

This is why i kept the "plain ring" when I got the control ring for my EOS -R (back when they are easy to find still)
I only have one RF lens, and so i'm really using all EF lenses. Some the control ring would not be useful, but on others I love it.

Ohhh nooooooo. :-( My R5 needs a repair already. I have NEVER broken something on a camera like this before :-(

I was out shooting and had my R5 with 500 mm lens hanging in the lens strap and I had to open a gate and the camera swung into the door and something hit the viewfinder so the front glas broke. Fortunately the lcd screen is working fine and the broken glass does not hinder me from using the camera but the glass need to be replaced just don't know how long it will take or how much it will cost :-(

Yep and go look for some kind of solution to protect the viewfinder while under transport.

Ouch. That's just so unfortunate. Especially with a new camera. :-(

No discount. Thats not part of the benefits in Denmark. I would get 10% on maintenance and this is not maintenance.

Can't find if this was answered before so here goes

On my 5DIV and 7DII I can set both the AF ON and "*" buttons for BBF and the AF ON is set for center point with 4 assist points (5 total) (can also do it to center with 8 assist 9 total) and the "*" to the full AF area 61 points with center point as starting. While on my 90D I can only get what ever AF type (single point, 9 point, 45 point) on both BBF buttons not one on one and a different one on the other.
I use the 5 (center point with 4 assist) for most shots especially BIF against trees, and the 61 point ("*" button) for BIF against a clear sky.

How does the R5 handle AF when you have two buttons on the back both set for BBF?

I still don't have a CFExpress card. Not sure if I will get one. Don't do video and not a dual-card devotee so will just stick with my plethora of UHS-II SD cards

The EF-R control ring adapter is in stock at Abt. I added 4 to the cart and went to check out to see if I would get a not enough stock message and I didn't get any messages, so I assume they have more than 1 in stock. Have at it.

Free shipping...

I didn't like the control ring when I got my R last year for that reason so I returned it and got two non control ones. With my 100-500 I did assign AF modes to it but I rarely change them manually. With the R5 (similar to the the R) Fv and C1-3 cover my most used AF modes. I assigned the M-Fn to toggle between Fv and C1-3. I assigned the Movie button to switch between eye and non-eye focus. I prefer to control the EVF and Display manually so I disabled the EVF sensor and assigned the * button to flip back and forth. The EVF wakes up faster after the camera goes to sleep and wakes up using that screen. If I ever decide to use the * button for a second BBF I'll assign the AF Selection button to flop between the displays.
