Picked my R5 up from the shop late this afternoon and just got in from it's first use to see this update. Couldn't have timed it better. I was just laughing all the way around the park in disbelief at the AF. Birds fighting/chasing in the water, flying around. The camera just tracked it all by eye and didn't skip a beat. I'm still in shock o_O.

Are you using R mount glass? I am using the EF-RF adapter and have had great success so far too!

All EF glass with the adapter currently and it's flawless! Used my EF 70-200 mk ii today whilst I'm waiting on my 100-400 mk ii to get repaired. Think I'll sell the 100-400, along with my R and some other stuff and get the RF 100-500, whenever that releases. Itching for Sigma and Samyang to release some RF primes too.

I am waiting to try the 100-500 first hand before I dump the 100-400. I use that lens on spot news and feature assignments a lot. I have read if you set your camera to 1/3 stops it acts like a 6.3, not a 7.1. But my shop will lend it to me for a few hours to take on a walk before I buy. So far the 70-200 has been flawless.

After testing this camera on every newspaper job since it was released, I sold or am in the process of selling my 5d 4, 50 1.4 (not a great lens anyway) 35 f2, 28 IS, and a few others to get more RF glass. I have 2 1dx mk 2 bodies, but so far, I prefer the R5. The only aspects that the 1d is better in to date, is battery life (which is AMAZING) and boot up from sleep time. If football ever returns, I think I would trust the 1dX in the rain at a game before the R5 tho, just a feeling.

I'm kind of in this odd boat where all I have between 35 mm and 100mm on the EF mount is three rather pedestrian primes (40mm pancake, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.8, no Ls). Bringing my 100-400 IIL to the RF party (with an adapter) as well as the 15-35 that I decided to go ahead and buy now, means I have no midrange zoom on the R5. I did order a 25-105 refurb (along with an RP, refurb) but that's on backorder for who knows how long.

I suppose I COULD grab that Tamron 18-200 APSC lens and use IT and accept the fact that it will take circular photos (the R5 doesn't recognize the tammies as APS-C so it doesn't go into crop mode automatically, and I'm probably too forgetful to switch back and forth from it myself).

I understand that a lot of work was required to implement general CR3 support given the lack of documentation from Canon.

But what exactly needed to be done to 'support' a new camera model? It's the same file format. What changes?
