Canon EOS R5 Review (a joy in real world use, Dustin Abbott)

Canon Eos R5 Review

Here is another exhaustive Canon EOS R5 review. A camera that’s “a joy in real world use, with only a few minor negatives“, as the reviewer states.

Dustin Abbott posted his full Canon EOS R5 review. As usual the review comes with a huge set of sample pictures, comparison charts, and all the information you might want to know. This is the review I would look for if I was on the fence for the EOS R5. Says Dustin in hist conclusion:

The “thing” that must accompany a Canon release turned out to be the overheating issue, and so it turns out to be not quite a Cine series replacement, though most shooters will probably be delighted with its broad range of video capabilities. Beyond that, however, there’s very little to criticize about the camera. The focus system is immensely powerful, capable of stopping action in an effortless fashion.

It is capable of recording beautiful colors with strong amounts of dynamic range and flexibility for getting the most out of images.

[…]

At the end of the day, however, this is the most versatile camera that Canon has ever produced and in many ways epitomizes the vision of the what a 5 Series camera should be.  Powerful, versatile, and robust.  I’m loving using the Canon EOS R5…I just wish those great RF lenses weren’t so stinkin’ expensive!

The EOS R5 is highly regarded as a stills camera. In particular, the EOS R5 autofocus system seems to be huge leap forwards.

Canon RF 800mm f/11 & RF 600mm f/11 Review (the super-telephotos for us all)

Canon Rf 600mm F/11

Canon surprised quite a few people when they released the RF 800mm f/11 and RF 600mm f/11 lenses. I have yet to see a negative review.

Gordon Laing thoroughly looks at the Canon RF 800mm f/11 and RF 600mm f/11 lenses, the “super-telephotos for us all”, in his 18 minutes video review.

Also interesting: an interview with the engineers who made these lenses.

Canon EOS R6 Review (solid, dependable, full-frame MILC, ePhotozine)

Canon Eos R6 Review

Here is a new Canon EOS R6 review, one of the few (so far, I hope). The EOS R6 is a great camera, at an almost affordable price.

At a glance:

  • 20mp Full-frame CMOS sensor
  • Sensor-based image stabilisation (IBIS) – works with any lens
  • 3.69m dot electronic viewfinder (EVF), 0.76x magnification
  • 3.0inch vari-angle touch-screen, 1.62m dots
  • 12 / 20fps continuous shooting (mechanical / electronic)
  • ISO100 to ISO102400, Low ISO50, High ISO204800
  • 6072 autofocus points/positions
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • Face and Eye-AF tracking
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • Dual SD card slots
  • 4K UHD 60/30/25/24fps
  • FullHD High-speed 120/100fps
  • HDR FullHD Video

The folks at ePhotozine posted their full Canon EOS R6 review. From their conclusion:

The Canon EOS R6 gives you a solid, dependable, full-frame mirrorless camera with all the familiar controls, and handling that feels good in the hand. You could easily pick up this camera, after using a Canon DSLR, and simply get on with using it. At the same time, you’re likely to be impressed by the rapid and reliable focus system, the improved continuous shooting speeds, and excellent image quality on offer. Noise performance is particularly impressive, with the camera retaining detail in images, even as the ISO speed increases.

The Canon EOS R6 feels like a complete and well-rounded camera. It feels extremely mature in every way we can think of. There’s no jagged edges or operational issues that spring to mind, and the camera delivers the goods when it comes to image quality, with Canon’s reliable colour reproduction. Combine that with an excellent AF system, with support for both humans and animals, and you have a camera that’s going to deliver great results time after time. In addition, you’ll be able to shoot at slower shutter speeds thanks to the in-body image stabilisation system, although you might not need to, as you can easily increase the ISO speed and still get great results.

Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS Review (incredibly capable, incredibly expensive)

Canon RF 100-500mm Review

Here is a Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS review. The RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS is seems to be another optical masterpiece by Canon, albeit an expensive one.

Key features:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4.5-7.1 to f/32-54
  • One Super UD Element, Six UD Elements
  • Dual Nano USM AF System

Photography Blog reviewed the . They called it an “incredibly capable but also incredibly expensive telephoto zoom lens“. Here are some excerpts from their conclusion:

Auto-focusing proved to be both satisfyingly quick and very quiet, with the ability to manually override it and focus manually if required proving a nice touch.

The very capable image stabilisation system goes some way to making up for the relatively slow maximum apertures.

[…]

Image quality is outstanding. Both center and edge sharpness are excellent even when shooting wide open throughout the zoom range, chromatic aberrations are very well controlled, and bokeh is impressive despite the slowish maximum apertures.

[…]

The new Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM improves on its popular DSLR predecessor in a lot of ways – it’s sharper across the frame and throughout the zoom range, has a more effective image stabilisation system, is lighter and more compact, offers faster autofocusing, features a fully removable tripod collar and a customisable control ring, and extends further to offer 100mm extra reach.
