It seems Canon is actively developing a new imaging sensor with wide dynamic range, according…
When the Live View Mode button on the camera body is pressed, the operation stops without displaying images on the rear LCD monitor.
Good to know
- If your lens was updated to be compatible with the EOS 760D / 750D, then it will also work with the 5DS / 5DS R.
- Lenses shipped after May 11, 2015, already have the new firmware and will work in Live View with any current Canon DSLR.
- Users of the 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports – the only Global Vision lens to be affected by this issue, see list below – can do this at home using the USB Dock and Sigma Optimization Pro.
