    I think people are more attracted to (camera) specs on paper instead of gaining experience and creativity. I'll bet the most iconic pictures taken were not all done by expensive gear with 1000x focus points.

    The Canon RF lenses are NOT equivalent to those 2 lens you showed. Let's be real.

    I'm mainly a videographer, but do shoot stills from time to time. 1080x60p looks SO smooth. I get why people shoot 4K; it's beautiful. But for most people, I'd say they are quite alright with 60P. And it decreases your work flow ;)

    I have 7D Mark II with EF lenses. I have always been, actually, considering 5D Mark IV. But, after watching this, I am thinking to get EOS R.

    The first in body Image Stabilization was from Minolta, then Pentax...after a long time Olympus, well if you refer mirrorless cameras only, well that is another history

  • Mack Tastic

    Sir, one thing that’s awesome... the manual focus assist works with eye autofocus ( seems only on chipped lenses) if u haven’t noticed that it’s there, I highly recommend u try it. I put the Otus 55 on it, the focus thing goes directly to the eye and you just turn the ring till the box turns green... wonderful stuff... the bummer is it doesn’t seem to work with adapted M mount lenses and other non-chipped lenses =(

    The biggest reason i went with the canon? Because of the mirrorless beast coming down the pipeline.

    Hey. Is it true that when you use EF lenses adapted that the option for 1080 720 and 1080 60p is not available and greyed out?

    Hows the low light performance of this camera?

    • Fiammetta Pizzi
      Fiammetta Pizzi 4 months ago

      Autofocus in low light is the best in the market with the f4 kit zoom it can lock focus in the dark in a fraction of a second. ISO handling is good, almost on par with other full frame sensors. Clean images up to 3200iso, a bit of noise at 6400 and usable 12800 and 16000 iso

    I bought the adaptor with ND-filter, the circular polarizer and the clear filter. I need some kind of pouch for the two filtes that's not in use.
    I think it's sad that you can't use the ND and polarizer for native RF lenses but only for EF and EF-S lenses. So i will keep using only EF/EF-S lenses.

    How loud is the clicking noise when using the adapter and the lenses’ control ring? Since it is $60-80 to remove/put it back

  • Carlos Vega
    Carlos Vega 8 months ago +1

    I'm tempted by the change to replace my Canon 6d (version 1) but what else pulls me back is the adapter, because I have my EF lens kit that I do not want to replace with the new ones, I would like your advice; I have a 24-70 f2.8 L (version 1) that I refuse to stop using. Thank you very much for your contribution. Sorry for my English (I'm still studying) Greetings from Entre Ríos, Argentina.

      Ef lenses with adaptor works like native R lenses - no difference. 1 adapter fits all. But you'll have a camera way ahead 6D.

    I absolutely loved your review. For anything that I may have know already, I was able to simply drag my mouse along the play line until your next reason came up ... thank you for doing this so could focus on the parts I needed to do so. You commentary, critique, you are articulate, and communicated this perfectly. I did not find the intro to long in this format because I can drag the mouse to the parts I wished to go to. If we could not, then I would agree with the suggestion of shortening the introduction. Thanks again, fantastic review, and excellent formatting.

    My favorite is the shutter that protects the sensor when the lens is off!

    • Vafa Bartlett
      Vafa Bartlett 6 months ago +2

      wow you called it. I noticed this and thought hey did my other mirrorless have that happen? I instantly thought they must have its so simple, something nice the mirrors did for DSLR’s and realized nope never did the shutter close when the camera was turned off on my Panasonic. Really like this for dust avoidance.

    Never buy the first iteration of any new technology.... You can say that the M50 was the first iteration... but that is debatable. In a FF camera.. the EOS R is.....

  • Gino Rigucci
    Gino Rigucci 10 months ago

    I noticed when you where comparing the Fuji against the Canon EOS-R the colors on the Canon where very good much better than the Fuji. Overall a good review. I would hope Canon includes dual cards slot with a CF card and Upgrades the sensor to a higher mega-pixel with a better quality.

    after 5 seconds of watching the intro, I skipped to the talking part. you should consider shortening it and improving it, good review though.

    The Future generations will complain about which cameras auto edited their videos for them. They will never know how to manually focus, pull focus, rack focus. Compose shots (as they will shoot in 10k and compose in post). Where is this going for the arts?

    Almost got it, but I know the DSLR lay out could not get with this. and that viewfinder. Just got the 5D mk 4. Feels more pro also.
