Would depend if you have the need for the 30 FPS that the R3 offers, some reviews state the focusing is great and very quick on the R3 and is held very well through all 30 frames with maybe just one or two that are slightly off.
But for cropping I do wonder if the R5 wins due to the higher mega...
Hi, I would say if you are on a tight budget try and pick up a zoom lens that goes to at least 300mm although if you can stretch your budget further and get a lens that goes to 400mm such as the 400 f5.6. I would also look at Sigma or Tamron as they tend to be cheaper than native Canon glass. I...
I think the main change will be the people who do not have the large 500/600 f4's but if you have only a 100 - 400 or similar you might be tempted by the 200 - 500 Canon or 600/800 f11 or if you wanted to go down the Sony route their 150 - 600.
I think you are right the future is definitely mirror less no matter what system you follow. The biggest decision I think people will have is do you go for a full clear out or just go for a new body and buy a converter for your existing lenses. Also with the proposed R7 crop sensor and maybe...
If you wish to go mirror less the Sony system is worth looking at and their 200-600 lens. With Canon I have not seen how the RP works with the 100 - 500 but it's a solid lens although you may not fancy the f7.1 at the top end but looks like a solid lens.
1 = Yeah no problem adding birds you have already seen as long as you are certain about the identity such as Puffin etc why chase after it if you have already seen it, but to be honest unless you have spent times at reserves before you became a birder you will get them anyway.
2 = Don't ever...
Do you have any local non Tamron camera repair centres? Sending back to the manufacture will always cost more bit like using your local main car dealer than your local garage?
Might be worth seeing if anyone like that can repair the lens often they hold parts from old lens that they can scavenge...
Cheers for all of the replies, allowed my camera to dry out over night (lens off and insides all exposed battery out etc), the camera is now thankfully back up and running, and me thinking of asking Santa for a water proof cover.
Thanks again all
Cheers Niels, after leaving it all afternoon with the body "open" I came to give it another go as it were, but now the camera wont turn on, hoping maybe the battery was drained flat with all the continuous shooting but got a bit of a sinking feeling that I may need a replacement body:cry:
