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.
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.
The Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera is nearly here. The body appears to have some kind of camcorder-style zoom rocker, it features 4K video but IBIS appears to be missing from the leaked specs. The lenses look rather nice but the sensor appears to have an identical megapixel count as the 5D Mark IV.
RF 28-70mm F2 anyone?
