Canon official announces the EOS R, what are your thoughts? Are you buying one?
Here's my opinion.
What i like:
-5655 focus points (100% horizontal coverage, 88% vertical coverage), that's insane.
- -6EV low light focus, pretty insane as well.
What i don't like
-Essentially weight and cost of everything, yeah you get what you pay for. I don't mind the higher prices, but weight is too much for my liking.
-$3000 cdn for body only
-$3900 cdn for 28-70 f2, weight 3.15lbs
-$3000 cdn for 50 f1.2, weight 2.09lbs.
I'm sure the photos that these lenses will produce are going to be amazing, however, for me. Too much weight.
No thanks Canon, I'll stick with Sony mirrorless.
fyi, prices are from canon.ca (at the present time I'm typing this), they are still updating their website.
Also I feel the same way about Sigma Art 1.4 lenses that were made for FE sony mount, just way too heavy.
