    Canon R EF-EOS R mount adapter. Fit all EF and EFS lenses?

    I don’t believe there would be any difference in using your ‘old’ lenses on an EOS R. From what I gather, using the EF/EFS to RF adapter doesn’t detract in the slightest in any responsiveness or image quality. It’s quite ingenious, and a very clever move by Canon to retain its user-base whilst...

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    We are all too familiar with the dilemma of UK-source or grey-market, but when you compare the prices of the EOS R with the 24-105 lens - £3,019 after cashback from WEX and £2,040 from Panamoz, we aren’t talking saving enough for a meal and a few drinks (well not for me anyway). That’s a very...

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    I only got 90 seconds in before I could take no more of his annoying delivery and ‘just got out of bed’ look. He may have had perfectly justified comments to make but I will never know. I don’t think I’m missing out on anything though.

    LP-6EN

    I have 2 Hahnel and 1 original Canon battery which I use in rotation. I haven’t noticed any difference at all in the number of shots taken, but my Canon battery shows a much lower ‘battery health’ in the in-camera thingy than the 2 Hahnel. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy Hahnel again, especially...

    Canon 70-200 f2.8 mk 2 or mk3

    Well spotted - thanks!

    Canon 70-200 f2.8 mk 2 or mk3

    I’ve read that the f2.8 IS Mk1, which was first released in 2001, went out of support in early 2017. Whilst there are no guarantees, this could indicate that the f2.8 IS Mk2, which was first released in 2010, may still be supported up until 2026. That’s still a long time off.

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    Is it possible that the long-awaited 7D Mk2 replacement (or the 90D which is taking its time) will be mirrorless? It would seem to be the only logical explanation for there being a ‘lower spec’ model in the pipeline, if such a thing is actually in the planning. I take what Canon Rumours say with...

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    You’re welcome Robin. Like you said, finding the worthwhile information in the other thread after it deteriorated was not easy. Hopefully this one will be much more focussed (do you like what I did there?) on the EOS R.

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    I’m not an EOS R owner as yet (still on the fence), but I am very interested. A major attraction is the EOS R’s comparability with EF and EF-S lenses. I’ve seen comments elsewhere about people successfully using Canon EF lenses, but very little about compatibility with 3rd Party lenses such as...

    Canon FF mirrorless...

    I hope I haven’t overstepped the mark, but I have created a new thread titled ‘Canon EOS R Series Cameras’ https://www.talkphotography.co.uk/threads/canon-eos-r-series-cameras.687080/ . In the spirit of all of the other ‘Owners’ camera threads, please do try to keep it on-topic. Thank you.

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    Please feel free to discuss everything Canon EOS R related in this thread. First-hand experiences from owners would be appreciated, although not mandatory. At present there is just the EOS R in production, but it’s highly likely that the camera will be the first of many mirrorless R’s from...

    Canon FF mirrorless...

    Is there any sense in one of the EOS R owners starting a ‘Canon EOS R Owners’ thread as there are for pretty much all of the other cameras? That way people can go to that thread if the wish to discuss the camera, or stay on this thread if they want to argue? It’s just that this thread might have...

    New laptop or upgrade?

    From experience of upgrading my desktop recently (also has an i5 processor), I upgraded my RAM first from 8Gb to 16Gb and didn’t really see much difference, although you might see a bigger improvement going from 4Gb to 8Gb. A couple of weeks later I installed an SSD and the improvement in...

    Beginner Help I need a monitor

    Well I can’t say I recommend this one as I haven’t got one (yet), but the BenQ PD2700Q https://www.scan.co.uk/products/27-benq-pd2700q-2k-qhd-ips-monitor-2560x1400-4ms-20m1-350cd-m2-mini-displayporthdmi-usb is one which I’m tempted by to replace my ageing Dell 23” which came with a Desktop...

    Parcel deliveries for neighbours

    Your actions were perfectly justified. Some people will continue to take liberties while they continue to get away with it. If they do things for you or are good neighbours in other ways then by all means, continue to do favours for them, but this clown is just one of life’s parasites so he can...

    Beginner Computer Specs RAM options?

    Given that you will exceed their minimum RAM requirements, and that your system is using an SSD then I would be tempted to see how it fares first before upgrading the RAM. You might find that the performance is good enough as it is. I recently upgraded the RAM on my desktop from 8GB to 16GB...

    North England Lytham St annes

    There are pay & display car parks but parking for free is pretty easy in both Lytham and St Anne’s in the surrounding residential streets as long as you avoid the permit holder only areas. In Lytham I usually park on Westby Street at the far end and it’s less than 5 minutes to walk into the town...

    North England Lytham St annes

    It’s worth noting that the towns of Lytham and St Anne’s are separate and are about 3 or 4 miles away from each other, so whilst it is feasible to walk from one to the other, it’s not a quick stroll. It’s worth visiting both, but personally I find St Anne’s to have more interest to me as a...

    Zoom for my 70D

    If you were considering the Canon 24-105 but are put off by the cost then give the Sigma 24-105 Art lens some consideration as it is considerably cheaper and of comparable image quality to the Canon L equivalent. It doesn’t have weather sealing like the Canon, but then your 70D isn’t, and it...

    Screen protector/ anti glare

    Just a thought, but have you tried increasing the brightness of the rear screen? I had a similar issue whilst shooting on a bright day and I found that this made matters much better.

    There are so many good ones in that set, but for me 3 & 9 are fantastic.

    Yes, it is a foil cutter. Given the increase in screw caps nowadays, these aren't used anyway as much as they used to be.

    The "What is it?" thread - Part III

    Neither of those are correct I'm afraid. There's me thinking it might be too easy. Perhaps a clue might help - I would expect most households would have one of these, although we don't seem to use them as often as we used to.

    Nod, I guess it does look a bit like one but I'm afraid it isn't correct.
