I'm building a Canon kit from scratch. I have my EOS R in hand and the 50 1.2 and 28-70 2.0 on order. Are there any EF mount lenses (from Canon or other makers) that you folks might consider must-haves in terms of price to performance ratio and how they might perform on the EOS R?
With all cameras that have an EVF (my experiences only) they automatically turn off exposure preview when a flash or trigger is put in the hotshoe so as to allow proper framing in what they assume is a dark environment. As I shoot manual I don't pay attention to metering. If you have a TTL flash then it is showing (most likely ) default flash exposure settings.
What I do is switch off the trigger to allow a base exposure (should I want one) and then turn on the trigger to shoot. This is particularly useful for fill flash.
In a dark environment where flash is the bulk of light in the scene I would let it just brighten the view so I can actually frame accurately.
I just do it once to get my base exposure and then shoot. In my 40+ years shooting I have noticed that light conditions in an area are pretty similar and one can get away with little changes in exposure.Yes, I discovered that turning off the hotshoe unit the exposure preview is enabled again. I suppose your workaround is viable. But slows workflow a little. I guess it's just something to learn and get used to with the mirrorless systems.
Sharpness, IS, focus is very fast and precise, no more focus by wire, build quality (same as 35mm 1.4 II). Against only 1/3 stop of light for the 85 1.2I don't shoot video currently but may dabble a bit with the new body. Do you prefer the 85 1.4 to the 1.2 because of the IS?
For Godox users, we'll have to wait for an update of the firmwares.
I tryed with V860II on camera, with X-pro and deported V860II and Ad200. Untill 1/200sec everything seems to work fine.
The troubles starts with HSS, I can't get consistent sceene illumination, and after 1/2000sec i get lots of bandings and it gets worse with faster shutter speed
edit: tests on a white wall
I din't get any banding on my 580EX II, only on my Godox flashes.I tested this with my godox, same here. Then I tested also with my only Canon flash, the 580EX. That was on camera, and on HSS it also gives similar banding. Don't know if the newer canon flashes behave better in this regard... anyone?
