    Apologies for the late reply, been a bit busy of late. I can concur with what he was experiencing with the 100-400 and the R in low light. Was thinking at the time that the fabled firmware update might resolve the issue. I updated firmware when it was released and managed a trip to Sungei today...

    Show your Bird Portraits

    Usually happens when trying to focus on distant subjects like the bird in these photos and the previous focus isn't in range. The R was set to one shot with small FP but have experienced it using servo as well. I was using the 28-70 prior to the 100-400 and when I switched to the 100-400 and...

    Thanks Jack, The R works flawlessly with my 200 F2. With the 100-400 II there is a reticence sometimes for it to focus and it needs a bit of assistance getting there. Once locked on it stays locked on

    EF Mount: Most verstatile mount?

    I have used the 100-400 II with and without the 1.4tc and as long as focus limiter is set it is ok If not then it needs some time to get there or a little manual assistance. Used the 135f2 in low light and had some issues locking focus, again set the focus limit to 1.6m and it behaved better...

    Great Whites to EOS R: AF, AF-Tracking

    I took the 200 F2 and the 100-400 out for a spin on Sunday, unfortunately the weather turned which seemed to drive most of the wildlife away. The 200 F2 worked fine they few shots I got. AF covered the full frame as well and the touch screen focus worked. The 100-400 with the 1.4 TC struggled a...

    EOS R first impressions - post your hands-on impressions here

    So far mines has not seen daylight or anything below 1600 Quite impressed with low level handling and the output. Was shooting both R and 5D4 at a gig on Sunday and when I switched to the 5D4 I thought I had left the lens cap on. Shot some 4K video on both and the R looks much better, again in...
