Canon EOS R In-Depth Review by Photography Blog (and it starts shipping tomorrow)

Canon EOS R In-Depth Review By Photography Blog (and It Starts Shipping Tomorrow)
More lenses for the EOS R are coming soon

Photography Blog posted their in-depth Canon EOS R review, complete with full-size sample images (JPG and raw, downloadable), videos and more information. The review is not without criticism.

Excerpts from the conclusion:

[…] the lack of IBIS on the Canon EOS R puts it at a distinct disadvantage, as does the rather curtailed 4K video mode and questionable design decisions, including the lack of an AF joystick, single card slot, curious M-Fn bar and lack of a shooting mode dial.

The new RF lenses are the real star of the show, especially the 50mm f/1.2 and 24-70mm f/2. They may be big, but they’re also fast, faster than any of their rivals, DSLR or otherwise. And they also show where Canon wants to take its new mirrorless system, aiming for quality at the expense of compactness.

Ultimately the Canon EOS R isn’t as DSLR-like as the Nikon Z7 and isn’t as well-specced as the Sony A7 III, but it’s definitely good enough to satisfy current Canon owners and newbies alike, and therefore to stem the recent flow of Canon’s prosumer base to Sony. Read the review…

We have serious hints that the next model in the EOS R series will sport a high resolution sensor. An interview with Canon execs also points in this direction.

The Canon EOS R starts shipping tomorrow, time to place your order :-)
