    According to the specs the R3 AF at EV -7.5. Both the 1Dx III and the R5 say AF at EV -6. If we believe in the spec fairy the R3 should do better in low light, sometimes the spec fairy doesn't...

    I did some test shots tonight on one of the lab pups. The test ended about 15 minutes after sunset and started just as the sun was setting. It seems the answer is yes the R3 is better and...

    I think the longer it takes to get an R1, the more likely it isn't several thousand more than the R3. If we see one soon it may have significant separation.

    I had trouble with the R5 focusing on tight areas with spot AF with good light. What I checked I would give the R3 a slight edge over the R5. I started to check it last night at dusk on the lab pups,...

    My R3 showed up last Wednesday and I have been comparing the two. Last night I was comparing the spot AF to see if there is a difference between the two. The R5's box seems to be just a very tiny bit...

    Doing a little cave man style testing I think those numbers may be right. Regardless that is still slow.

    I wasn't implying that shutter speed would have an effect on the rolling shutter distortion, what I was saying is that just like we can use shutter speed to give the appearance of a frozen in time...
  8. Rolling Shutter and Shutter Speed / Is there a comparison

    With the R3 coming on Wednesday I have been giving thought to the 30 fps and the effects of the Rolling Shutter.

    My thought is that just like IS is described by the number of stops, the...

    That is the reason I went ahead and ordered the R3. I do hope the R3 doesn't have this problem.

    One thing I noticed about the big point, it seems that it actually focuses toward the bottom of the...

    A regional camera store that has a shop in my state has had the R3 on its website several time over the last few months. Last one a few weeks ago, another appeared today. They seem to be trickling...

    I avoid shooting weddings, for the most part I find them depressing.

    However here are my thoughts:

    The minimum requirements to be a professional wedding photographer are as follows:

    What is possible, without a doubt and has been done before, is a high resolution sensor in a 1 body with the build quality and superior AF system to go along with it.

    Nope, it is not just you. It is many of us.

    My opinion as of right now is one of indifference, it really hasn't set the world on fire.
    Even worse my opinion of the body keeps falling.


    I see may positives with the R5, and it is an...

    I puzzled on this a few years ago with a static tree.
    The only way I came up with where both the bird and the moon are sharp is to focus stack, overlay two separate images.
    Perhaps the best to hope...

    If you do what Joel suggested I would like to see the "after" results of the 1Dx III uncropped picture.
    Maybe it will give it more kick.

    For what is worth I would have done the same thing you did. Pixel peeped and tried to see if I could have cropped.

    Look at the talons and the branch it is sitting on. To Joel's comment front focus might be a little of it.

    You sure it isn't the difference in resolution that you are noticing?

    Bird takeoffs are tough. They explode so fast it is hard for the AF to kick in. If those shots were sequential in five frames a whole 1/3 of a second elapsed +/-. That's pretty demanding. Also here...
