    That's not my experience. If I go to Spot AF (AF Method) I get a single point AF box to select focus, even with face detect, and EyeAF on, with people priority. No indication of Face or EyeAF identification, and no way I can find to override without going into the menu and changing my AF Method...

    Quick question. On my Sony gear I can go into single point AF, and set a custom button to kick in EyeAF. Is there a way to do this on the R5 (I can't find anything). This would save me switching modes in the menu.

    Born and breed scouser :) I have the 100-500 on my list but it's a fairly hefty list, so I'm not sure when that's likely to be. This is an absolute cracker.

    Two shots from today, nothing special. I blew the highlights in the sky on both and was able to recover a reasonable amount of detail. I'm still getting used to the button placements after years of Sony kit but I was fairly happy. and another cat shot for good measure.

    I’m currently out shooting with the R5 and I love it. By pure coincidence my route just happened to take me past my favourite local camera store, and being the friendly chap I am, I had to stop in and say hello. Now I need to tell the wife I bought three more lenses :)

    Externally Zooming Lenses

    Presumably this could be taken care of through some kind of rubber or gasket replacement during servicing?

    Externally Zooming Lenses

    Morning all, having started to invest in the new RF system from Canon, and finding that most of their lenses focus using external zooming I’m just wondering what if any disadvantages this might bring? Obviously this is great in terms of space saving in my bag, but I’m a little worried about...

    The one thing I don’t like about this new range of RF lenses is the external focusing mechanisms. Not sure why but I’ve always preferred internally focusing lenses. Are there any downsides of externally focusing lenses?

    Zenith manufacture a great range of antiviral wipes. We’ve been using them to wipe down anything that comes into the house, including my R5 from Panamoz

    Looking for help on another issue too. Outside of facedetect+tracking I can't move the single point AF box with the joystick. I've reset the camera to default just in case I did something in the menu, still the same any thoughts?

    Admittedly it was 8K 24fps IPB.

    I’ve just had quite an interesting experience. I decided to setup the R5 as a webcam today for some of my video conferences. I figured that as O wasn’t actually recording footage, but instead just piping it out, that the overheating issue wouldn’t apply. I was wrong. Just had the warning flash...

    Can't wait to get out of the house with it, but for now the cats will have to suffice.

    R5 and 24-105 have just this second arrived. Ordered on the 10th September from Panamoz.

    My R5 shipped today, hurray! With any luck I might have it by early next week.
