It hasn’t been mentioned much but now the dust has settled on the EOS R launch, I’ve just realised we are being seriously diddled.
In the run up to IBC, I was enrolled on mailing lists by PR agencies without even opting-in. These companies were working for various camera-related brands. I received invite after invite to meet, to talk, to build bridges and make friends. Meanwhile DJI was spamming my forum via a fake user, advertising the Mavic 2.
It’s official. In 4K on the 1.8x crop Canon EOS R, the new 28-70mm F2.0 turns into a 50-126mm F3.6. Shooting with that combo is a $5300 privilege, with no wide angle to speak of.
I call for the Canon manager most culpable to resign.
