Pros: very fast auto focus
Cons:
nothing so far

I have actually been awaiting this cam for a long period of time to match my investment in Canon lenses. Do not fret about Moire. I have yet to see it and I have taken several images. The primary thing about utilizing this cam is that to get its amount you have to use it in circumstances where the majority of the pixels are in focus. I utilize this either with flash photography or outdoors where in both cases I can set the ISO low, the effective shutter speed high, and the aperture little. I have an excellent set of L lenses to work with it too. Far, many of my photography has actually been of my grandkids where I create a huge ceiling bounce using my 4 cordless speed lights with CP-E4 battery booster loads. With this arrangement I essentially take out all the limitations and shoot f8, ISO 200, and set shutter at 1/200. The high depth of field and severe sharpness is awesome. I can zoom in and see my reflection of myself holding my cam in the pupils of their eyes! Every pixel counts if you are a pixel peeper. Other work includes landscapes outside. If you want to shoot walk around shots with this cam it is all right. You can always set the camera to a frame size with less pixels. Personally, my walk around casual electronic camera is the Lumix FZ1000 which has the finest 4K video capabilities of any electronic camera I have actually yet checked, yet costs less than the expense of one Canon camera lens but covers a range of 24mm to 400mm with a 1" sensing unit and 20 megapixels. That being said, this 5DSR is now my go to electronic camera for my best shots where I have time to set things up. The only unfavorable, which is not one of the video camera itself, is that these huge raw files take longer to scroll through and process than the ones from my 5D MkIII. You will lose more time in post processing. Cam is easy to utilize, but really effective.

Pros: nice bokeh
Cons:
slow focus

I acquired this lens to pay for a broad angle in low light. The very first few pictures were less in focus, but it settled in nicely after that and has been taking charming photos. Much more affordable than its competitors. I would love to try the 50mm Art lens!

Pros: Fast accurate auto-focus
Cons:
none

I was hesitant to buy this EOS 5Ds R due to the reviews claiming enhanced noise levels in the high MP sensor qualities. O.K., so inform me exactly what I'm doing incorrect. I photographed in low and typical ambient daytime with ISO 3200 and I'm not seeing the sound in the shadows, or anywhere else, for that matter. My regular electronic camera is a Nikon D800E. This video camera was bought for my partner, who has actually been making use of a Canon EOS 5DMKII. There are much better noise qualities for this video camera than my Nikon at the same light levels and ISO readings. Far, this 5Ds R has actually performed well beyond what I was led to think from the reviews I check out from "professionals" and "lovers" who declare to understand technical information about performance. Well, I can't say anymore than this to anybody thinking about acquiring this 5Ds R for their severe photography: Make the determination about it's suitability for your purposes by utilizing the cam as you typically utilize it for your work and take the "professionals" guidance with a big grain of healthy apprehension. You might be amazed by the outcomes you enter your very own testing. I'm not consisting of any images in this commentary, since a little thumbnail size image is of little help in seeing image quality. This 5Ds R is a gorgeous and stylish entertainer.
