RIP, EOS R.
BBC interview with Executive VP of Canon Europe. Go to 4 mins 08 seconds.
It’s been a rocky reception for the EOS R. Even the BBC have been giving Canon a hard time over the ‘too little, too late’ approach. Now it’s time for some of the most loyal Canon users to use the camera ‘in anger’… Literally.
They are finding out the hard way it has some major issues.
My EOS R is open to a bit of experimentation!
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.
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.
Now some of the dust has settled in the 2018 full frame mirrorless game, we can start to get a clearer picture about what’s on offer.
