    Preorder: Canon EOS-1D X Mark III with bonuses and a giveaway

    Hi Guys! I got an newsletter from the local professional shop. The camera will cost 7360 Euros in Austria. What an incredible price. This is 1050 Euros more than the Mark 2 version at the time of announcement. Wow. I was until reading the heavily pricing thinking of buying the Mark III. But as...

    AF spot size on Eos R vs. 5D Mk 4

    Well, Mr. Alan, it works on animals and persons that are just some meters away from you and have normal sized eyes, like an dog or cat. With smaller eyes like the eyes of an Robin, it struggles often. I´ve tried it frequently. I have an Robin that is quite "trustful". I can come 3 m near to him...

    AF spot size on Eos R vs. 5D Mk 4

    Thank you for your postings. I hope the spot of the Eos R is small enough for my needs. I use the small spot of my 5D IV very often, when I shoot small birds or birds that are far away. Using the small spot, most of my pictures are "eye-sharp". By the way, I left Canon this summer with buying...

    AF spot size on Eos R vs. 5D Mk 4

    Hi Guys! I´m considering to buy an used Eos R to bridge the time until an pro-orientated "R"-version appears on the market. My question for birding: How is the AF spot size for the Eos R vs. the Single-point Spot AF of the 5D MK iV? (for pinpoint focussing) Is it equal small? Thanks Daniela

    Replacement: Eos R or 5D Mark IV again?

    Hi Guys! Thanks for all replies!!!! (y) To get some feeling, I joined an Canon workshop and shot two days with an Eos R. Quite different usage to my RIPped 5D Mark IV. In direct comparison to the 5D Mark IV, the AF of the R is faster, but it was harder to follow the birds. And the Eos R´s AF...

    Hi Guys! I tried a lot of backpacks and stayed with the Lowepro Trekker 650. I got one really cheap from an private seller who wrote an PM to me, for whom it was to heavy. I´ve just one small problem with it: On the front side, there is an compartment, where you can put the Laptop-sleeve...

    Replacement: Eos R or 5D Mark IV again?

    Hi Guys! I had an backpack incident on Monday (silly, as I´m looking for an new one). The result is an heavily damaged 5DIV. It is not repairable (CPS). I do not want to spend the money for an 1DXII as an successor might be coming in one year, so I will stay with the 5D class. My question...

    I need an new xl backpack

    Thank you for all answers. I´m going to see some of your rcommended bags in Munich at several shops. The Gura gear bags look quite interesting, also the Anvil. The f-Sop bags seem to be interesting too, but they are in the same weight class as the Lowerpro 650 with the ICU. Also the big lens...

    Hi Guys! Some questions on the new stuff from Canon. Do you know, if the RF version of the 24-105 is optically better than the EF II version? Should I sell the EF 24-105 II and fetch the RF version? Do you know, if I can use the 52mm polarizer from my 500mm II in the drop in filter of the...
