    Canon EOS RP body price confirmed at $1299 USD, and we’re very happy about it

    Nice, very aggressive move on their part. Good way to get the masses into RF. I just wonder what will happen to the price of the original R...whether there will be some downward pressure...one can hope?

    Canon EOS RP Specifications & Images

    Mixed thoughts. No top LCD screen - but there *IS* a mode dial!

    Canon to announce at least 6 new RF lenses next week

    I’d say it’s closer to a mirror-free 6D but with a 5D4 sensor...

    Anyone will buy a DSLR now?

    Yes, if it suits my purposes.

    Review: Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM

    He had this to say regarding handholding the lens: ...and knowing how modest he tends to be with his language, I will take this to mean it is still not a handholdable lens, at least not in the way the 300 is...

    Canon to announce at least 6 new RF lenses next week

    Yeah, that’s almost certainly the case. Although admittedly it is hard to tell scale from that small blurry image... Hopefully it is lighter as well. ETA: it LOOKS like this lens has a setting for mode 3 IS, which was strangely omitted from the EF version III

    Canon to announce at least 6 new RF lenses next week

    Wow, looks like they are cranking 'em out right off the bat. Their strength is lenses and they know it...now for an equivalent body to be able to mount them to... FINALLY a 24-70 2.8 IS but of course it's RF mount. :( That 70-200 looks surprisingly compact, but I'm assuming that this is a...

    EOS 5D Mk iv or EOS 6D Mk ii

    I don't have extensive experience with the 6D2 but I did have the original 6D for a couple of years which I used alongside a 5D3 before upgrading that 6D to a second 5D3 body. My takeaways: IQ-wise, I was hard-pressed to tell the difference between the two. The difference between 20 and 22MP...

    5dmk4 two months in ...

    Yes, after initially being skeptical I made the switch (from 3 to 4) and the 4 is definitely a pleasure to use. A large majority of the usability gripes I had with the 5D3 were addressed in the 5D4. I agree with your points except for the one below: Interesting, as I found the 5D4 shutter...

    IBIS and 100mp coming to an EOS R camera? [CR2]

    If true, too bad. Although that said, the current model is good enough most likely to get several more years out of... As for the 5DS vs. 5DSR discussion, I suspect that the filter in the regular 5DS is relatively weak, as I remember when I tried it out I was still impressed by the clarity and...

    How is everyone getting on with servo and face tracking?

    In my limited testing of the camera, I was not impressed....at all. Better off sticking with one shot, or if servo tracking is necessary, a 5D4 or equivalent DSLR.

    Is Canon Refurbished Worth the Price?

    For lenses at least, when there is a sale I would say yes. Not quite brand new, but definitely superior to used/secondhand market. You *might* have a speck or two of internal dust but externally, it’s in excellent condition. Only issue is after tax, the savings over buying new may not be that...

    EOS R exposure issue?

    Was the metering set to evaluative?

    Patent: Canon RF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM

    I don’t doubt that the 24-105 can make a good “one lens fits all” travel package. However I still see ML as a smaller alternative to a DSLR setup. The R and 24-105, while smaller than, say, a 5D, is still a substantial and conspicuous camera. I think smaller lenses like the 35 1.8 are better...

    Patent: Canon RF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM

    If that is optically achievable then sure. But I’d rather not have any design compromises as I’m assuming one had to be made to allow the lens to focus at macro distance.
