Canon EOS R, Shooting it Today

See my Canon EOS R wishlist. (if not yet live, use this link to Canon EOS R system).

PLEASE pre-order using my links—thanks!

The Canon full-frame mirrorless system is here. Well, not the whole system since the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L is not due till December, and I did not snag a Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L (backordered). I do have the Canon EOS R and the Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L and the Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS R, so I can shoot a few Zeiss DSLR lenses on it also.

I’ll be shooting the Canon EOS R today (and the Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S, which also arrived) up at Rock Creek. It’s due to turn bitterly cold by Sunday night, so after that I’ll be forced down from 10-11000 feet to lower elevations.

I like the Canon EOS R; nice camera but holy cow is it complex in terms of buttons and bars and dials. I’ll be writing up how I configured it, but it’s clear the possibilities are many and varied and I’d say it’s not as straightforward as the Canon 5Ds R, substituting complexity for button layout—and I am not a fan of a lopsided all-right-side layout as is all too common these days (excepting the one button at left, Menu).

The Canon EVF seems just as sharp as the Nikon Z7 EVF, but to my eye the Nikon Z7 has all EVFs beat for its pleasant color and shadow rendition (a friend of mine, a Sony A7R II owner, immediately was wowed by the Nikon Z7 EVF)

I also received a rental unit from LensRentals yesterday. Agree, like viewfinder very well, and am boggled by menu complexity. My sense is that it is too small and cramped for my big hands, but perhaps I'll adapt.

DIGLLOYD: works Ok, but it's a devil of a time switching between the Nikon Z7 and the Canon EOS R. The Canon EOS R has too many gadget-like features and tiny button IMO. But perhaps over time one would learn them and it would cease to be an issue. The other thing is the position of the front dial is awkward for me—Z7 is better there too.
