From Steve Huff:
Before I go further, I will state 19 things I like about the EOSR so far.
A: The swivel “flippy” screen,
B: The new lenses are beautiful in build, feel and weather sealed with QUIET AF motors.
C: The ergonomics for me beat Sony as do the menu system.
D: Battery life is great so far. No complaints.
E: 1080P HD video looks fantastic. No mushiness here.
F: Love the fact that I can get an adapter with a built in ND filter.
G: Touch screen LCD.
H: Super good low light AF (-5 EV with 50 1.2) and decent IQ at high ISO (still testing this)
I: Can use EF-S lenses as well with adapters, auto crops to APS-C in camera.
J: Mic and Headphone inputs
K: The Size is nice. Thinner than a 6DII, much less bulky than any DSLR. Feel GREAT.
L: EVF is 2nd best I have used next to the Leica SL EVF.
M: Dual pixel AF and face tracking is FAST, for video it is rock solid as well.
N: CRAZY customizable. I mean, it’s extensive.
O: Top LCD is nice to check settings on the fly.
P: Feels better than my Sony in the hand and in use.
Q: AF points can go just about anywhere on the screen. No limitations.
R: Q Menu is awesome and touch screen works well in this menu.
S: LOVE the control ring on the new lenses. Can be programmed to suit your needs.
Things I would have liked to be different:
A: Should have two card slots these days, without question.
B: Should not have a 1.7 Crop for 4K video (Sony doesn’t do this)
C: Touch bar thingamajig is not needed. Could have used that space for something more useful.
D: Shutter sound is kind of clunky.
E: I liked the photo/movie switching better on their DSLR’s.
So 19 likes so far and only 5 dislikes. Not bad.
The Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera is now in stock and shipping in the US.
