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.

Latest Canon EOS R3 Firmware Update (ver. 1.2) Has Been Pulled (mode dial issues)

Canon Eos R3 Firmware Sample Picture User Manual

It seems Canon already pulled the latest Canon EOS R3 firmware update, version 1.2.

User DrJohnEvs in the DPReview forum writes (emphasis mine):

I installed v1.2 a few days ago and all worked well.

I noticed last night that it had been withdrawn from Canon UK site.

This morning I contacted CPS UK. I have just received a reply saying there is an issue and recommended I go back to v1.1.1

The issue is that if you have v1.2 on your camera and then perform a reset the mode dial does not work correctly and you cannot change between Tv Av etc.

Anyone experienced similar issues?
