I'm still waiting to get the RF 100-500mm f4.5-7.1 L IS so that I can take long telephoto high-magnification shots of flowers and birds on my R5, since the graph of its background blur size at 500mm is almost identical to that of my MFT Olympus 300mm f4 lens, while the Canon resolution and color depth should go far beyond what Olympus can do. But since I don't have it, and I can't get (yet) R5 raw files through my DXO post pipeline, I was hoping that you wouldn't mind if I ran a few photos I just took with my Olympus 300mm lens since that raw file goes through my DXO. Here are some crops at 1:1 with it: View attachment 192385 View attachment 192386 View attachment 192387
Thanks, Bert.These are great - so super sharp - and it's good to see another DxO user. I love it. That plus Nik and a little Topaz Studio from time to time and I'm good to go..
I've been really happy with DXO PhotoLab as it gives some very easy to learn & simple ways to make some very big improvements to your images - especially if your images have more grain in them (like from a MFT sensor - ahem, cough, cough!) it can make it smooth as butter, and the sharpening tools and color/brightness corrections it allows with a few easy sliders lets "amateurs" like me get some surprising results (like those hummingbirds). It can't do a lot of really fancy stuff that you can with Lightroom & Photoshop, but I use AffinityPhoto for a few of those things (but I'm new to it and not an expert at all). I use PTGui to stitch panoramas, and have a self-customized tripod setup with dual Nodal Ninja ball-stop rotaters for fast & precise multi-row panorama alignment if you're into gigapixel landscape panos, etc. Now I got lucky enough to get the R5 at launch but that scuttled my ability to use its raw files in the programs I rely on - DOH!
For all of the people that do use Lightroom and Photoshop, you can all enjoy the fact that they already got R5 raw file input working (I heard), and you can all say to me in unison, "You get what you pay for!". I'm so jealous!
Thanks, Bert63. These are with the 100-400 MkII + 1.4x III. I sold a 500/4IS couple of years ago because it just wasn't being used. Last year I bought the 100-400 and it's been great, couldn't be happier.Funny - in the car right now I have my EOS-R, the 5D4, and the.........7D2. I've been 'nostalgia' shooting it for two days now and I'll never get rid of it.
Which lens did you use to get these? They're very good! Up here every day is eagle day. The only question is whether or not you can get to them..
Hope not...I started using it this year mostly for noise reduction and it's the only one of my three apps that don't have support yet. C1 just got it late last week, but still...I was really getting on well with DXO. Hope it updates very soon.DxO won't be far behind.

I wish I could justify keeping the 7D2 for a second body. I'm not going to replace my 100-400 with the 100-500, so that and a 100L macro is the only EF glass I'll have. Could use those on the 7, but they are better on the R5 in any case.
It's usually slow updating, I am afraid. I'll be using Adobe to convert to dng files and then PhotoNinja until DxO updates.Hope not...I started using it this year mostly for noise reduction and it's the only one of my three apps that don't have support yet.

That's some beautiful detail you've got there. I'm looking forward to getting the RF 100-500 and hope it's as good as this. If so, it's going to be fun!I took out the 90D with the 100-400mm II as I hadn't used the camera for a long while. The Little Grebe chick that I saw being fed by mum at the beginning of the month can now fish for itself. This is a tiny crop as the little bird was far away. The 100-400mm on the 90D has the equivalent reach of an f/11 800mm on an R6 or 1DXIII.
