    I appear to have entirely accidentally purchased a second hand EOS R from mpb which will be arriving in a few days.

    You really ought to pay more attention when you're not shopping, Tony. ;)

    Agreed! I do seem to have casually confirmed it uses the same battery as my 7d2 while accidentally clicking buy.

    It's so easily done, isn't it? :D

    Easier to explain to the missus than a Thai bride, I suppose.

    I haven't bought a camera in over a year. I feel an itch that need scratching... but that might just be the herpes?

    I have been very good at not buying cameras, it took a lot of effort to not buy two replacements for my EOS M and even more effort not to buy three Leica M lenses. I did crumble on a 90mm and hit buy it now only to be told that it was no longer available.
    I would be even more virtuous if I moved the K1000 on, but you know how it is, I'll just run a film through as a test, oh it is quite nice, I rather like this...

    Will do. I think the adapter is arriving after the camera by a day or two, which will be a challenge for me to remain patient.

    It's arriving tomorrow!

    But, still no news on the adapter arrival so ..... no testing until that gets here!

    Also, since I absolutely cannot afford any RF lenses, I guess the question is, which one will I accidentally purchase first?

    The second hand 24-105 lenses are similarly priced to their EF cousins:rolleyes:;)

    There's only one answer, Tony: "Neither"....... because you'll buy both at the same time! :eek: ;) :D

    Noooooooooo!! (cough cough)
    I really wish I hadn’t read this….arrgh!!

    ….goes off searching for EOS R …

    It's part of the reason I bought a second hand R rather than a brand new RP (RP uses the small square batteries aligned to the M series cameras), also I'm a snob and didn't like the idea of not having a top display (RP has none, R has the new panel style).

    TBH Tony, I just assumed these new mirrorless cameras would have a new style battery pack ( extra batteries = extra revenue)
    But as I currently own 9 models that use the LP-E6 (N) batteries, hence I have 30+
    So a R with EF adapter is the natural progression for me.
    Let us know your thoughts Tony once it’s arrived.

    Well, it's arrived, its gorgeous, and I can't do anything but read through the menus until the adapter arrives.


    I knew this was true, I knew the delivery of the adapter would take longer (low stocks everywhere), but still, GNASH.

    How many times can I format the SD card and pretend it's 'like using the camera'?
