    Thanks for both of these reviews, Martin. I bought the EOS R in December for my creative, impressionistic photography using the in camera blending modes. I was already an EVF user (Fuji X-T1 and X-T3) and wanted an EVF with the in camera blending modes. The EOS R is fantastic for the impressionistic work that has had my attention since I bought it. I have done a little landscape work with it and those shots are also great. Needless to say, like you, I am pleased with my purchase. I haven’t really had chance to explore all the menu options yet so your review has certainly encouraged me in that regard. Can’t wait to program the multi-function slider. As always, thanks for your work. Janet

    Hi Martin,
    I’m wondering if you took any photgraphs using a polarizing filter? My one big complaint with electronic evf’s is that, at least for my eyes, it is much more difficult to see the effect the polarizer is having as compared to using a traditional prism finder. What has your experience been?
    Thanks.
    Mark

    Hi Martin,

    thanks for the two reviews about the EOS-R, especially your statement…”I honestly don’t know how much better the other mirror-less cameras on the market are in these areas, but I do know that people love to complain. It’s as though they need to find reasons not to like something, and have to reinforce that decision by making the people that they influence feel bad about the gear under review as well”

    Having read a lot of your posts of Facebook etc. those sort of comments make deciding so much easier. I’ve looked at the Nikon and Sony equivalent cameras and have heard people say how much better those cameras are. However, ask them a few months later and they all say that the “Canon feeling” is something that they miss.

    Would love to buy via BH Photo but the tax & shipping to Sweden makes it more expensive than a local shop.

    Thanks,
    Paul
