Its features made my life a lot easier in the past three months and will help me deliver winning shots in the upcoming major events such as Rugby Sevens, F1, and Abu Dhabi tennis tournament. I highly recommend EOS R3 photographers who want to shift to mirrorless technology, and those who are not afraid of transition. This camera makes the transition effortless, and its compatible with previous lenses without compromising quality and functionality”.
