Apparently, the sky isn’t falling and Canon isn’t doomed. The first decent hands-on preview (mini review) of the Canon EOS R has hit, and the camera looks to be an excellent first step for Canon and will make still shooters quiet happy.
This is a HANDS ON PREVIEW of the Canon EOS R, new RF lenses and lens adapters. This is NOT A REVIEW just yet, that will be coming in the future. Should you sell all your Canon gear and move to Nikon or Sony or do you stick it out?
Here’s my take so far, this camera gets a lot right while still disappointing in some ways. But, I think it’s a very good start and will only lead to better future cameras. Now’s not the time to switch.
Jared provided some RAW files for you to play with over the weekend, you can get them here.
I’m looking forward to Jared’s real world review in a couple months time. Hopefully, by then, we’ll have one in our hands. I’m super excited to get one and I’m sad Canon doesn’t like us enough to give us a camera to try out. :)
