Our friends at Mirrorless Comparison posted their full Canon EOS R3 review. A review that explicitly looks at bird and wildlife photography. They are rather fond of the Canon EOS R3. From their conclusion:

[…] a stunning package that leaves nothing to be desired, and no detail is overlooked.

The image quality is fantastic, probably the best Canon sensor I’ve ever tested. Some of you might have preferred more resolution, but the advantage here is the high ISO performance, with very usable images at 25,600 ISO. Dynamic range is also excellent.

The R3 offers a state of the art autofocus system and it has a unique characteristic that resonates with innovation – Eye Control – which works surprisingly well. The software is also very impressive, and the capability to detect and follow animals is the best I’ve seen. Only the occasional lack of consistency stops this camera from being the very best in the field.

CANON EOS R10 Review (likeable little camera, handles nicely)

Eos R10 Review

Here is a Canon EOS R10 review, Canon’s most entry-level, APS-C mirrorless camera with RF mount.

At a glance:

  • 24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF II
  • 4K30 Video, 4K60 with Crop; HDR-PQ
  • 23 fps E. Shutter, 15 fps Mech. Shutter
  • 2.36m-Dot OLED EVF
  • 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
  • Multi-Function Shoe, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Amateur Photographer posted their full Canon EOS R10 review. From their conclusion:

After a decade of tinkering half-heartedly with the EOS M system, it seems Canon has now decided to take APS-C mirrorless more seriously. With the EOS R10, it’s produced a likeable little camera that ticks most of the boxes we’d expect for a £900 body. It handles nicely , in a fashion that existing Canon users will find very familiar, while delivering attractive images . Its autofocus system and continuous shooting speed are both in a different league to anything that Canon – or indeed anyone else – has previously offered in this price range.

Compared to the competition, the camera’s main flaws are its small viewfinder and lack of in-body stabilization . But the biggest problem is the lack of native APS-C format RF-S lenses , or indeed any roadmap for upcoming releases. in having a camera that allows you to change the lens, if you can’t buy a sensible set of lenses to use with it. Unfortunately, Canon doesn’t even offer an APS-C telephoto zoom to complement the kit zoom, let alone a wideangle zoom, or some compact bright primes. You can use full-frame RF lenses, but only a few look really well matched to the EOS R10 in terms of size and price; perhaps the Canon RF 50mm F1.8 STM, RF 85mm F2 Macro IS STM, and the Canon RF 100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM.

Canon EOS R7 Review – One Of The Best Cameras Canon Makes (PetaPixel)

Canon Eos R7 Review

Here is a Canon EOS R7 review that highlights the many advanced features of Canon’s EOS R model with APS-C sensor.

At a glance:

  • 32.5MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF II
  • 4K60 10-Bit Video, HDR-PQ & C-Log 3
  • 30 fps E. Shutter, 15 fps Mech. Shutter
  • 2.36m-Dot OLED EVF
  • 1.6m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
  • Sensor-Shift 5-Axis Image Stabilization
  • Dual UHS-II Memory Card Slots
  • Multi-Function Shoe, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

PetaPIxel posted their Canon EOS R7 review. There are some criticism to the ergonomics but overall, the EOS R7 appears to be a very capable mirrorless camera. From their conclusion (emphasis mine):

Calling the Canon EOS R7 one of Canon’s best cameras is a lofty claim, but I think it’s still deserved. We are talking about a $1,500 camera that can get away with creating pretty much anything at a high level. It feels pretty nice in the hand, has weather sealing, plus incorporates many of the company’s latest software features inside. The 32.5-megapixel APS-C sensor with in-body image stabilization is capable of taking some beautifully rendered images with room for cropping and composing in post. It’s shockingly fast in both frames per second and autofocus, making it a lot easier to come away with keepers.

While not touched on in this review, even the video shooting is ready for assignment with 10-bit 4K 60p footage that it can record, which is oversampled from 7K, is really nice and the ability to harvest as much dynamic range as possible with Canon Log 3 is also possible.

Canon EOS R7 Hands-On Review (a unique proposition, DPReview)

Canon Eos R7 Hands-on

Here is on of the first serious Canon EOS R7 hands-on reviews.

At a glance:

  • 32.5MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF II
  • 4K60 10-Bit Video, HDR-PQ & C-Log 3
  • 30 fps E. Shutter, 15 fps Mech. Shutter
  • 2.36m-Dot OLED EVF
  • 1.6m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
  • Sensor-Shift 5-Axis Image Stabilization
  • Dual UHS-II Memory Card Slots
  • Multi-Function Shoe, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

DPReview posted their Canon EOS R7 hands-on review. From their conclusion:

The EOS R7 is a unique proposition. It’s easy to see The R7 as a successor to Canon’s 7D Mark II, especially given Canon’s R5 and R6 were, more or less, mirrorless successors to their 5D Mark IV and 6D Mark II predecessors, respectively. But that isn’t quite the case with the EOS R7, as we hit on in the previous slide.

Despite offering similar specifications to the 7D Mark II in many respects, its price, interface and accessory lineup at launch is more in line with Canon’s X0D series of cameras. As it stands, it’s a proper enthusiast camera with features and specifications that should satiate the needs of most any enthusiast, be it for stills, video or some combination of the two.

[…] the R7 is a respectable camera for both stills and video. The fact Canon is using the same Digic X processor found in its more capable full-frame RF cameras – and is using dual UHS-II card slots – suggests Canon wants to position this as a more capable APS-C system.
