The Eye AF seems obvious to me because the M50 already has it, I wouldn't be concerned about this.


So said the 6D2 crowd about on-chip ADC sensors -- b/c the 80D already had it. :unsure:

Yes this is a really innovative concept by Canon and appeals to me similarly. It would be good if as you assume it is configurable. Even better if you could use another button on the body to cycle the function ring between different options, e.g. ISO and aperture
Yeah. On my ~7-year-old Canon Powershot S100 this button is called "RING FUNC."

microfocus adjust this is not a concern in ML.
Hi,
I think he doesn't mean AF Microadjustment, but mean fine manual focusing.

Anyway, may be "RF" = "Reduce Flange" since the RF mount has the same diameter as the EF mount, but at shorter flange distance ... :p

Have a nice day.

The more I think about this new R, the happier I am that I held out buying a 5d4.
I also think that with Canon colour and Canon ergonomics, this camera will kill the Sony 7's and the new Nikon.
A lot of those photographers that switched to Sony will rushing to come back to Canon.
That 28-70mm F2 lens sounds delectable too for indoor events without a flash.

Bringing out R versions of their most popular L lenses is very good. Most people want zoom lenses, and not a bunch of primes.

The top control dial is good on my M5, and I would imagine the one on the new R will be more sophisticated.
With the new slide bar and lens ring, we'll get a great to use camera.
If they can make it as fun to use as my M5, Canon is on an absolute winner and it will sell like hotcakes. Especially if you can use your thumb on the rear screen to focus while you look through the hopefully good EVF.
As soon as I've read some reports on it, I'll be pre-ordering one with that F2 zoom.

You can't compare a software function to a physical technology applied to a different kind of sensor. I can see no reason for canon to not do it this time ;)

The video specs sound promising which is worrying. What horrific crop or codec is waiting for us?

As someone else mentioned, the video specs do sound like a wishlist. They also don’t mention whether there is a crop.

If it has all those features and FF 4K no crop + 1080 120p, I would pre-order it on day one.

Like you, however, I am waiting for the shoe to drop- Canon has always been fearful of cannibalizing their video and higher end prosumer cameras.

Let’s see if they’re willing to go the distance this time- if they are bold and take a risk on the video along with the other seemingly innovative features here (which I applaud them for), they can own the stills / video hybrid market moving forward.

I wonder if the 24-105 is macro (but only 0.75x magnification) like one of their current full frame kit lenses, and that's why it has lens IS. If so, the body could still be IBIS. I think if the body has IBIS than this definitely isn't going to be $1900, like earlier rumors suggest. Give me IBIS and BSI sensor tech and I'm down to pay 3 grand, and I'm only a hobbyist currently. This could be the godlike camera everyone has been waiting for from Canon.
The minimum focus distance on the new RF 24-105 is identical to the current 24-105 f/4L IS II USM, so it's not going to be terrible, but not outstanding either.

0.71 is the viewfinder magnification, usually based on 50mm lenses. So how big does the viewfinder appear. This is consistent with full frame DSLRs

Thanks. If that is true then it is not telling anything about the EVF resolution.

I assumed it refers cross type AF points since that is the basis for Canon's DPAF
?

DPAF to date has not been cross type. Architecturally they can only construct parallel lines.

Maybe this sensor has half the pixel pairs rotated.

Sounds like the LCD touch screen has even better resolution compared to 5D4. 5D4 has 1.62 million dots Vs EOS R has 2.1 million dots. Anyone know if this will be anymore helpful in practical terms?
