Canon EOS R Round 2 Gallery
December 6th, 2019
I delivered a verdict on the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera last year, but Canon wasn’t quite finished. Canon has continued to support the EOS R and expand it’s capabilities via firmware. This includes vastly improved Eye AF real-time tracking (which now lags only behind Sony but is better than any other alternative), reduces the latency between autofocus and display, and added the inclusion of an intervalometer and ability to create time-lapse movies in camera. Beyond that, Canon has also started to deliver on what was clearly the greatest strength of the platform – the new RF mount and all its potential. While the bargain lenses for the RF mount are still few (though thankfully some third party support has started to come), Canon has delivered a number of their very best lenses yet on the RF mount. There’s been enough positive changes Canon EOS R that I’ve finally bought in and added an EOS R to my own kit. I’m pretty much done with DSLRs at this point and ready to shift completely into the mirrorless space. I’ve decided to release a new video which focuses on the positive changes to the EOS R and the RF platform and why it’s worth a second look in late 2019. I’ll also share some photos from the Canon RF 50mm F1.2L below as I start my review process on that lens.
