    Images and specifications for the upcoming RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM, RF 85mm f/1.2L USM DS & DM-E100

    ef 70-200 /2.8 II at the 70mm end is on par with RF 70-200 besides in the extreme corners where RF lens looks better. at the tele end, RF lens wins in mid frame and corners. however, at the 135mm, I favour the EF lens in corners and centre. I am keen to see some bokeh samples of the RF lens at...

    Upgrade to m6 ii or RP for family memories in low light

    "The biggest drawback of Canon re-using the EOS 6D Mark II’s sensor is its relatively limited low-ISO dynamic range. This means that you can’t dig as much detail out of the shadows from raw files before being confronted by unsightly noise, compared to other full-frame sensors or even modern...

    Gotcha! You are correct. 5DSR is a capable camera that can certainly be used for a lower res, bread and butter shooting. However my understanding is they the camera is optimised for a different type of work. In my view there’re are two type of cameras: generalist type of camera and a...

    I believe that Canon learnt their lesson with 5DS/R and market is better understood for them by now. A ultra high res rig is an appealing proposition to many beyond the PJ and run and gun crowd. I have no visibility into 5dS/R vs 5DIV sales data but would hazard a guess that market emphasis...

    With al With all due respect, your case is an exception. The majority of event shooters would resort to a lower resolution cameras. This is an opinion.

    I am pretty sure Canon is NOT abandoning JPEG. Please correct that. HEIF will be offered as an alternative along with JPEG and RAW. This has been mentioned is in the Canon’s recent DPR interview.

    Keith, what are your observations in relation to optimal shutter speed requirements for shooting stationary subjects with 90D? I shoot with two 5D IV bodies. I found that my sweet spot is around 1/FLx1.5. I do not shoot people slower than1/60 no matter what even at a UW angles. Thank you...

    Some features are essential and some features are nice to have. If you are on a paid assignment outdoors and continue shooting whatever weather conditions are, then you need a camera that’s is reasonably weather sealed. According to this highly reputable resource Canon R is not weather sealed...

    You comment is: why R is not considered a Pro body? Answer: you can cram as much cool Features as you like in a camera but if the camera is not weather resistant enough or not rugged enough, it won’t survive a commercial environment.
