Canon Eos R5 Review 8k Video

Here is a fresh Canon EOS R5 review. One that seems to focus more on real life application than on lab results.

Coming from John Gress, the 10 min video review below covers many aspects of the Canon EOS R5:

After owning the Canon EOS R5 mirrorless camera for six months, I wanted to update you on my experience with the camera as a commercial studio portrait photographer and an occasional videographer.

We will cover the AF, EVF, LCD, battery life and video features, including external recording, from my perspective after leaving the 5DIV.

Canon RF 85mm f/2 MACRO IS STM Review (lot of great virtues optically)

Canon RF 85mm F/2 Macro IS STM Review

Here is a new Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM Review. The RF 85mm f/2 is one of the less expensive lenses for the EOS R system.

Coming from Dustin Abbott, this is a full and exhaustive Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM Review. From Dustin Abbott’s conclusion:

[the RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM] has a lot of great virtues optically, delivering great detail, nice bokeh, and a quality of rendering that is quite excellent.

But the autofocus left me often frustrated, and that’s even more disappointing in a day where I’m seeing great autofocus from all kinds of players in the lens market.  […]  This lens needed Canon’s Nano-USM rather than the cheaper STM motor.  The great optical performance is unfortunately let down by a disappointing autofocus system.

[…] I really, really want to love this lens, as the idea of an affordable, optically excellent 85mm lens that just happens to do 1:2 macro competently is an enticing one. But while I loved the images I got from the [RF 85mm f/2], I found the process of getting them often frustrating. You’ll have to determine whether you can live with the flaws I’ve detailed. User reviews are generally very positive, though the one caveat that does routinely show up is some disappointment with the autofocus. The lens is otherwise good enough that it might be worth living with, but ultimately you’ll have to make that call for yourself.

As usual the review comes with a huge set of sample pictures, comparison charts, and all the information you might want to know. Dustin’s reviews are what I look for when I am about to purchase new gear. And for those who prefer to watch their reviews, Dustin Abbott provides a comprehensive video-review.

Other reviews have been more positive and consider the Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM to be a very good performer. Some say this lens is just a no brainer for any EOS R owner.

Nikon Z6 Ii EOS R5 Vs Nikon Z6

Here is a Canon EOS R6 vs Nikon Z6 II vs Sony a7C comparison for the best entry level professional full frame mirrorless camera, which is a bit contradictory as phrase.

Not sure how “entry level” and “professional” together can define the same camera. However, the Canon EOS R6 vs Nikon Z6 II vs Sony a7C comparison by the The Slanted Lens in the 17 minutes video below is a neat view on how these cameras compare side by side.

We compare the Nikon Z6 II vs the Canon R6 vs the Sony a7C. See which one we recommend as the Best Entry Level Professional Full Frame Video and Still Camera. All 3 are under the $2500 price point. And they are all 3 crossover cameras. See how they compare. Which one would you choose?

Canon EOS R6 Review (and comparison with EOS R5)

Canon EOS R6 Review Camera Sales

Here is a new Canon EOS R6 review. The little sibling of the much more discussed Canon EOS R5.

Coming from Photography Life, the 22 minutes video-review below discusses the most important features of the Canon EOS R6, including ergonomics, image quality, AF performance, along with comparisons with the EOS R5.

I have the impression the EOS R6 flies a bit under the radar and doesn’t get the attention it deserves. There are many features that the R6 shares with the EOS R5, a class leading autofocus system for instance, and the R6 has an imaging sensor derived not less than from the flagship EOS-1D X Mark III.

  • 20mp Full-frame CMOS sensor
