    70 cropped to 105 is not bad, 105 cropped to 150 is not bad. 70 cropped to 150 is not good.

    A broader lens zoom range that doesn't sacrifice IQ is a good thing. Trading a stop of light is ok in a...

    On EF, I definitely preferred the 24-70/2.8 II. Better IQ than the 24-105 MkI (I had two copies of that), and most importantly, better AF performance on a DSLR because of the wide aperture-requiring...

    Can you set up different C# (custom) modes and use the M.Fn button to cycle through them? That’s what I do on my R3 (although for me it’s all electronic shutter with 3, 15 and 30 fps).

    A Cooper's hawk dropped into our back yard around sunset yesterday evening, with a mourning dove in its talons that it proceeded to consume.

    I was in Telluride, CO last week. Not a very picturesque location at this time of year, but I did manage a few shots one evening on either side of sunset. These are of Ajax Peak, just east of town....

    My testing was with just one lens, the EF 600/4L IS II. I was going to write that I've offloaded all my EF lenses that take a TC so that is my only option, but upon reflection while that would be...

    In a long tele lens like a 600mm, the lens IS is doing almost all the work. That’s physics. For IBIS to be as effective at 600mm as at 60mm, the sensor would have to move 10x the distances, and it...

    Copy variation definitely occurs, it’s more common in consumer lenses than L series lenses, but certainly occurs in the latter. For example, check out Bryan’s review of the EF 24-70/2.8L II. He ended...

    I agree it’s a concern for the industry. The mix is also important. 5M bodies where most are full frame with high margins (and probably multiple lens purchases and future upgrades) vs. the recent mix...

    Interesting exercise. I clicked them in my personal order of preference. That order turned out to be 1D X III > R5 > 5DIV > M6 II.
