EOS-R Mirrorless is good for Classic Glass!

Below is an introduction and light review of Canon’s entry into the full frame mirrorless space that up till just recently was the near exclusive domain of Sony. Whether one chooses a Sony, Nikon, or this Canon EOS-R, the mirrorless cameras offer an amazing access to just about any lens on the planet. Once you get a mirrorless camera, shows like PhotoFair can bring you amazing classic glass with loads of character that you can use on your modern camera!

85/1.2 L a Beast of a lens

I mentioned the other day I bought a Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 L at the show and decided to write it up after spending a few days with it bulging out in front of my new EOS R.

Great Show, Thank You!

How about that show Saturday? Thanks to our two presenters, Jeff Martz with another amazing Photo History presentation and Lew Held with Sigma for a fabulous lens demo. Lew brought in some AMAZING lenses, I’m talking about exotic glass like a 105mm f/1.4 for FULL FRAME!

I managed to sell my minty 5D Mark III at the show and picked up a couple of juicy items for solid prices. I got a nice clean Leica Summicron C 40mm that I will use on my Canon M5 and I got that legendary Canon 85mm f/1.2 L Mark II at very fair price.

We are actively looking to bring more factory demos to our show. Stay tuned right here for more info. The next show is February 23rd at the Newark Pavilion. Come for the classics or come for the modern stuff, PhotoFair has it all.

I look forward to doing it all again next year! Thank you to all our guests, vendors, and presenters for another fabulous experience at #PhotoFair #CameraSwap
