This Reviewer Claims Canon Got It Quite Right With the EOS R

This Reviewer Claims Canon Got It Quite Right With The EOS R
Canon EOS R

Johannes of De.Light Photo got a Canon EOS R, and is very fond of it.

In the conclusion he writes:

Wow, what a camera… It delivers all what I expected to get. Using the EOS M5 since almost 2 years as my main travel camera I knew that Canon is delivering great gear on the mirrorless side as well. Therefore the R is definitely the next level for my “always with me travel camera”! The great thing is that it delivers those features which I missed mostly on the M5: Better low light performance and more bokeh and that’s just related to sensor size. And weather sealing. But unfortunately the first RF-mount lens to come will be the 35mm f1.8 – and this one comes without weather sealing.

The EOS-R is a remarkable camera. It can be a work horse for all “normal” needs – and I believe for working professionals as well. I would think it will become a […] camera for travel photographers, who do want to be a bit more discrete and [want] to carry less.

For many topics which are critizised in the online community there are workarounds or solutions built in which are made pretty awesome. But you have to figure them out and maybe to learn how to use them.

Johannes’ review comes with a lot of sample photos. The EOS R as “always with me travel camera” convinces me a lot. I bought the EOS M3 for the same reason.
