Enjoy. I'm really loving my R6.

I bet you are. The EOS R is an amazing camera, anything that is made later should be better.
body only is $100 less isn't it? $100 for a piece of garbage isn't a good deal.

Yes, you're right. On sale the body is $899, vs $ 999. But the RP is an entry level FF body, so having it come with a lens is not a bad bet for those starting out.

yeah if your hard budget is $1K and you have to have a mirrorless FF brand new body with a zoom lens, i guess it makes sense. I just know i'd be disappointed pretty quickly if i spent money on that. $100 could go towards something miles better.

From what I read sometime ago I think Canon is making a new RF nifty 50 1.8. So definitely could go towards something better, but I don't think those are $100 anymore.

:hmm: my pops needs a new camera
This more than enough of a camera for a 70yr old man that needs a camera for vacation and family photos? Lol

lol yeah. It'll work well in green box mode. You might want to add a small flash if the RP doesn't have one. The complexity will blow his mind if he ventures off green box.

They definitely need a nifty 50, or at least one that isn't north of $2000. I have the 50/1.4 and it works fine on the R6 but it was never the quickest focusing lens nor the sharpest wide open.

Who makes your 50 1.4? Is it a Canon? Maybe you have a bad copy?

My R5 has arrived!

Canon. I got it in 2008 but the design is much older. It's always been a bit soft at 1.4 but better by 1.6 and sharp by 1.8. I need to try it wide open on the R6. Maybe it's just an AF issue with the older cameras.

Yeah I know...was just kidding
He was using a canon powershot as his go too.....but he walked into the water with it in his swim trunks.
His iphone 11pro is all he needs really. But I have to coach him through that and the iCloud :hs: wish me luck
