Switched to Canon Mirrorless
After shooting for four years with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV + all my EF lenses, it was time to switch from DSLR to Mirrorless. I bought the new Canon EOS R5 + RF 24-70mm f/2.8, RF 70-200mm f/2.8, RF50mm f/1.2 and the RF85mm f/1.2 and I’m so excited to work with this new gear!
My old camera made 253.800 clicks and that’s a lot, because the camera was created for a lifetime of 150.000 clicks.. But it all worked well till the end :)
We still have to wait for an update of Adobe to be able to open and edit my RAW files, so for now I have to use a DNG converter to convert the RAW images to DNG so I can edit them. We also have to be patient for the Capture One update. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait too long.
Tonight I have my first portrait/portfolio shoot with the new camera and lenses, so I’m not able to share more at this moment because I only tested it at home. I’m very curious!

Oh boy, This expense is in the near future for all of us isn’t it? I am shooting Nikon but it’s all the same really. I photograph weddings mostly and am really passionate about keeping the image quality as high as possible. The D850 has been around for a while but the quality still remains in the top. It looks like ISO sensitivity could be a good reason to make the switch.

It might have costed you a fortune. I still use my 5D Mark4 (replacement of my 5D Mark3 that is lost due to theft at Amsterdam central) and I find the images have lots of blacks and contrasts. I love taking portraits on green backdrop such as parks and trees and I find Green dominates more. I still feel I am doing something wrong with Lightroom with the profile. Seeing so many pictures of you shooting with 5D Mark4, I have regained the confidence.
Interesting. But I still stick with my 5d mark 4. I like to have the control myself rather than the autofucus.
