Canon EOS R Review – Here Is Why Dustin Abbott Bought One

Canon Eos R Review

In this Canon EOS R review, one of our favorite gear reviewers, Dustin Abbott, tells the reasons that moved him to buy an EOS R.

He says:

Canon has continued to support the EOS R and expand it’s capabilities via firmware.  This includes vastly improved Eye AF real-time tracking (which now lags only behind Sony but is better than any other alternative), reduces the latency between autofocus and display, and added the inclusion of an intervalometer and ability to create time-lapse movies in camera.  Beyond that, Canon has also started to deliver on what was clearly the greatest strength of the platform – the new RF mount and all its potential.  While the bargain lenses for the RF mount are still few (though thankfully some third party support has started to come), Canon has delivered a number of their very best lenses yet on the RF mount.  There’s been enough positive changes Canon EOS R that I’ve finally bought in and added an EOS R to my own kit. I’m pretty much done with DSLRs at this point and ready to shift completely into the mirrorless space.  I’ve decided to release a new video which focuses on the positive changes to the EOS R and the RF platform and why it’s worth a second look in late 2019.  I’ll also share some photos from the Canon RF 50mm F1.2L below as I start my review process on that lens.

Canon EOS M6 Mark II Review (DPReview’s favorite Canon MILC so far)

Canon EOS M6 Mark II Review

Here is a Canon EOS M6 Mark II review by DPReview, and they call it their “favorite Canon mirrorless camera yet“.

From their conclusion:

The Canon EOS M6 II is a more overtly photographer-targeted camera than its predecessor, gaining Dial Func control, a dedicated MF/AF switch and an AF-On button which combine to put just a little more control directly at your fingertips. And it ends up giving a good degree of direct control without the sense that you need to completely configure the camera yourself.

[…] The camera’s autofocus isn’t quite a match for Sony’s a6400 and a6600, but it’s still very good and will adapt to a wide range of shooting with little effort.

[…] the M6 II is an excellent choice. It’s not the best in its class in every respect: the Sony a6400’s autofocus is better, the Fujifilm X-T30’s video is superior, as is its lens range, while the Nikon Z50 arguably has nicer ergonomics. But the M6 II does have the highest resolution of the bunch with excellent noise performance and dynamic range, and is otherwise competitive across the board. Above all, it’s engaging and enjoyable to shoot with.

Canon RF vs EF Lenses – Is The New Generation Better?

Canon RF Vs EF 50mm F/1.2 EOS R System

Tom of BorrowLenses compares Canon lenses for different mount types in this Canon RF vs EF lens comparison.

Canon RF lenses are for the new Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system, Canon EF lenses fit on Canon DSLRs (APS-C and FF). So, which are better? Are the RF lenses an improvement over EF lenses? For this purpose these lenses have been compared:

  • Canon RF 50mm 1.2L
  • Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L
  • Canon EF 50mm 1.2L
  • Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L

All tests done on a Canon EOS R (EF lenses mounted via adapter). And here is the video with the Canon RF vs EF lens comparison:

Canon puts a lot of emphasis on their new lens mount system, and for a good reason. Some of the so far released lenses are nothing less than spectacular. An interview with the engineers designing and developing RF mount lenses is here.

The Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L is one of the boutique lenses Canon made for the EOS R, the other is the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L. If you have any doubt left that the RF versions are an improvement, then have a look what DxOMark says.

It’s also pretty interesting to read what the experts at LensRentals have to say after a teardown of the RF 50mm (emphasis mine):

[…] the R lenses are not only entirely new optics, they are also largely new electrical and mechanical systems. There are a lot of different things in here that we haven’t seen in any Canon EF lenses. Some of them we should have expected, like the increased electronics going to the control ring. Others we don’t really understand yet, like the tension spring in the ring USM motor or the increased electrical shielding.

[…] We also saw lots of new stuff we don’t completely understand yet and a level of complexity we weren’t expecting.

[…] the RF lenses contain some new technology they [Canon, editor’s note] haven’t used before. There’s a lot of engineering that’s gone into these. Things are different inside here. As we’ll see in the next teardown we do, some of that is carrying over to at least some EF lenses. What does this mean? It means Canon has invested very heavily into developing the lenses of the R system. This level of engineering didn’t all happen in the last year, they’ve been working on this for quite a while.

Guess there is definitely a lot of new technology in Canon RF lenses compared to EF lenses.
