The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Better than DSLR. AF, color rendering and ISO greatly improved. Very fast burst, perfect for everything.
Cons:It does not allow you to shoot above 1/60 with flash in electronic mode. But I don't make a drama out of it. You switch to normal mode and away.
Opinion:Coming from 5D mk4, 1DX and RP I was happily amazed at the quality of the files, already great for RP and R. Different types of AF hooking for all situations. The dynamic one for eyes or animals is mind-blowing, it does not miss a beat. With the new 2130 mAh LP-E6NH battery, on two occasions I have reached up to about 3450 shots, in burst mode, with electronic shutter. Double slot with CFExpress and very comfortable SD. For cfexpress I use 128GB Manfrotto and are faster than Lexar. IBS only works with some third-party optics, and activates automatically when needed. It also applies to Canon lenses and always depends on the lens stabilizer and at what times you shoot. You don't notice and there are no warnings in the crosshairs. They're no use. Very convenient if you want to use some lens without stabilizer. High yield of ISOs. Beautiful Jpeg files almost as a flagship. The adjustable display is a crazy cool for uncomfortable shots at first. With the BG-R10 battery grip excellent overall body/optical balance. There remains only a small sore note for those like me who are forced to shoot in electronic/silent mode, the anti-flicker option is not activated and flash shooting is limited. I hope in the next firmware for the anti-flicker. Excellent materials as per Canon tradition. The backward compatibility of the LP-E6 batteries is very intelligent.
Pros:Everything: autofocus, burst, stabilization, resolution and sharpness, dynamic range, construction, customizations, video compartment, etc. etc.
Cons:To be just picky, the only thing that can be reported is the battery life, good but not exceptional.
Opinion:Practically the state of the art of mirrorless technology. As someone who preceded me in the judgment, I come from many years of experience with canon professional cameras, but I find this R5 resolutely ahead of all the SLRs of the 5 series, in my opinion now surpassed in many respects even by the best APS-C on the market (vds. Fuji XT4). Compared to the 1DX III, whose ergonomics and robustness it does not achieve, it offers more than double resolution, which allows useful cutouts in case of excessive shooting distances, obviously without losing details and quality. In conclusion, progress is obvious and obvious. A large camera, which forces all other brands to chase for the time being.
Cons:Chromatic aberrations with expensive optics, and gamut color and lower-than-competitive dynamic range.
Opinion:As a owner of almost all canon top-of-the-range bodies, the latter did not fascinate me like previous cameras. Color gamut and dynamic range are still to be improved. Compared to the canon 5dsr it has less colors and detail, and the files look fake and plastic. I find the quality of r6 better as colors but it doesn't have the resolution of r5. This canon didn't thrill me!!!
Pros:Autofocus, burst, sensor, video compartment, construction, "ibis" and flash management in E-TTL
Cons:Real efficiency of the IBIS based on the declared and exposure meter that follows the af point frequently below exposes of 2/3 Stop.
Opinion:I tested IBIS (based on my way of photographing is to make small videos) together with IS but I am satisfied in half indeed a little less than half!!! This test I did with burst shot and in SERVO I took the ef 16-35 f/4 L Is Usm (where Canon declares UP to 4 stops) and put it at 35mm with the R I can keep the time of 1/6 with 50% of the result. with the R5 I can keep the time of 0.3" with 50% of the result Practically the IBIS earns me ONLY 1 STOP I did the test even at 16mm but I had the same result Somewhere in the Canon web I read that the ibis combined with the IS of 16-35 came up to 7.5stop so I would have a gain of 3.5 STOP 2. I took the RF 70-200 L Is Usm (where Canon declares 5 Stop) and put it at 70mm with the R I can keep the time of 0.3" with 50% of the result with the R5 I can keep the time of 0.6" with 50% of the result Also here the IBIS earns me ONLY 1 STOP 3. I took the Sigma 50 f/1.4 ART (not stabilized without IBIS I keep 1/30 with 50% of the result with IBIS I keep 1/6 with 50% of the result Here the IBIS earns me 2 STOP Final deduction In practice the IBIS in addition to is earns me only one stop, and between IS RF and IS EF there is no difference in gain, while with optics without stabilizer the IBIS earns me 2 STOP which is not bad. While in the Video field I manage to have excellent stabilization with EF 16-35 do/4 freehand without finding strange postures as happens to me when I use the R. I really like flash management in E-TTL! I often find myself photographing with flash in dynamic situations where there is no time to use it in manual so I have to use it in Automatic. The flash used is a Canon 470EX Ai often used with automatic or semi-automatic bounce with the plastic diffuser because I happen to take pictures of children in a kindergarten who are often on the move in playful activities, so depending on how I turn I have backlight windows, partially lit areas and areas in favor of light. I rarely find photos overexposed, under exposed or with those very ugly black shadows, practically the algorithm manages to manage the light exceptionally making it always soft, when there is little light and the iso is already at 1600 instead of giving so much power, as happened on the 5D IV and R because iso was stuck at 1600, here it is unlocked so that there is less contrast between natural light and artificial light. On the other cameras I often had to move the iso and adjust it manually to prevent the flash from firing too much light. Not to mention the burst shot that with the flash now manages to do I think 3 shots in a second while with the R about 1.
Opinion:I meditated a lot before the choice, initially on the plate of the scale there was the 1dx II then the 1dx III (really too expensive ) but in the end in my kit there is this amazing machine. The doubt about compatibility with my EF kit has vanished, all the targetss I have works and without any difference on the speed and quality of the images, indeed the Sigma 180 seems more responsive. I spent 3 days studying the advanced manual (I advise everyone to read it) in order to make the most of this little technological monster. Combined with its BG-R10 grip it is perfect to counterbalance my 300 and still grips perfectly. I'm really satisfied and I think I found my ultimate car. Video side I don't express myself because it's not my field
