Canon Eos R3 Review

Here is a Canon EOS R3 review that looks explicitly at the RAW files outputted by the camera.

  • 24MP Full-Frame Stacked BSI CMOS Sensor
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, Eye Control AF

Coming from Jared Polin (aka FroKnowsPhoto) this Canon EOS R3 review analyzes the RAW files coming from the camera. Moreover, the CR3 files are all available for your pixel peeping pleasure. Says Jared Polin:

This is a RAW FILE Review from the Canon EOS R3. I took the Canon EOS R3 with an adapted 400mm f2.8 IS II out to photograph Soccer and wanted to share some RAW files with you. I am leaving the RAW files as CR3, so you see the exact file directly from the camera. What I can tell you is the auto focus is pure insanity on this camera and the files are fantastic as well.

Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS Review And Sample Photos

RF 100-400mm F/5.6-8 IS Review

Here is a new Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. Interesting land affordable lens the Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/5.6 to f/45
  • One UD Element, One Aspherical Element
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • Nano USM AF Motor
  • Maximum Magnification: 0.41x at 400mm
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
  • Customizable Control Ring

Photography Blog posted their exhaustive Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. There is also a set of sample pictures. From their conclusion:

The new RF 100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM is the best super-telephoto lens for most Canon full-frame mirrorless shooters, delivering satisfyingly sharp results and being compact and lightweight enough to carry around all day, and it’s also something of a bargain to boot.

The main rival to this lens is the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM, which at an eye-watering £2899.99 / $2699.99 will be well out of the price range of most people.

For everyone except professional users who will use the 100-500mm day in, day out, at just £699 / $649 the new RF 100-400mm makes a lot more sense from a financial point of view.

Thankfully its not just the price tag that’s appealing – it also delivers the goods in most other departments, from image quality to focusing speed, from build quality to feature-set.

Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM Review (highly recommended)

Rf 16mm F/2.8 STM Review

Here is a new Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM review. The RF 16mm is an interesting and affordable lens for the EOS R system.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • One Aspherical Element
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • STM Stepping AF Motor
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 7-Blade Diaphragm

Photography Blog posted their Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM review. They gave a 4.5/5 and “Highly Recommended” rating. From their conclusion:

[…] the Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM is a very cheap and very cheerful ultra-wide-angle prime lens that delivers sharp images in the centre, fast and reliable auto-focusing, usefully close shooting distance, and surprisingly good build quality, all housed inside a tiny, super-lightweight design.

It delivers excellent sharpness at the centre of the frame throughout most of its aperture range, even performing very well when shooting wide-open at f/2.8. It’s a different story at the edges of the image, though, which are much softer, with best results obtained from f/5.6-11.
