Canon EOS 5Ds R Thoughts By Ming Thein

Ming Thein posted the last part of his Canon EOS 5Ds R long-term review. He compared the EOS 5Ds R to the Nikon D810 (and other cameras).

Ming Thein is a Nikon shooter. He tested the EOS 5Ds R, and says:

It is clear to me that neither Nikon nor Canon can claim to be decidedly superior at the moment, each with their own strengths and weaknesses – much like their equivalent lens lineups. Canon lacks Nikon’s new f1.8G primes, but Nikon lacks all of the special purpose stuff and some of the zooms – there is no 17 TSE, for starters. There’s no question that if I were a Canon shooter, I’d be very happy at the moment: you have a tool that’s miles ahead of anything else in the system, can hold its own against the competition most of the time, and can pull ahead if the conditions are right. If I shot only subjects under which I could satisfy those conditions – in a studio, or perhaps landscape or architecture – it would be very easy to justify a complete switch.

And: “Since my glass investment is already F mount, it is with great sadness, I have to bid the 5DSR goodbye. I’m missing it already“. There is more. Considerations, comparisons, beautiful sample pictures. Read the review.

Canon eventually getting serious with the EOS M system? [CW2]

Canon Eventually Getting Serious With The EOS M System? [CW2]

A new rumor surfaced, again suggesting Canon will get serious about the EOS M system… next year.

It’s not the first time that rumors suggest a break-through EOS M camera. in 2014 we were told that Canon would take the EOS M system seriously in 2015. Though the EOS M3 appears to be a good attempt (waiting for mine to be delivered), it’s still not convincing anyone Canon is taking it seriously. It’s true that you can virtually use any EF or EF-S lens with the adapter, but having only four native lenses isn’t a sign of great commitment to the cause.
