    Interesting. Hopefully it is just an Adobe bug. I'll test this weekend. I had been searching for other reports of this and I'm glad you found something.

    No, I haven't noticed any of that type of problem on my direct out of camera images, at least nothing that has stood out enough to notice. I have had a couple of incidents while processing where there has been some strange colors off to the edge of my processed images.

    Thanks for all the hard work Kyle! I’m very interested in the R platform, but like most others, I’m not ready to take the plunge yet. I think mirrorless is the future. I would like to see more high ISO improvements, and on -board image stabilization in the next R camera. Great review!

    Kyle,

    Any updates on your time with the R? I am still now feeling that once the higher MP R family body comes out, I will be buying either it or this body, depending on how the 2 compare on dynamic range and higher ISO performance.

    Not much recently. I did take some interior real estate photos with it and the 17 T/S. Worked well and the camera had no trouble handling the DR in single frames. A couple of examples here. I'm getting used to the touch and drag focusing (I've set it to use the top right corner of the touchscreen). It easy quick and easy to move the focus point around the frame while looking through the view finder - it is just a different action than I'm used to. I'll be using it exclusively on a trip in the next couple of weeks so I'll have more to report then.

    Kyle,

    Thanks for the update. Good to hear how an accomplished photographer such as yourself is adjusting to some of the new features and the different UI.

    Just saw a rumor about the high rez version of the R that says it might be up at the 75MP range. That is amazing resolution-wise, but I am worried that might keep the DR and higher ISO noise performance at the same levels as that of my existing 5DSr. In that case I would have to seriously consider whether it is worth stepping down in resolution to 30MP to have something that is a little better with DR and high ISO. So I remain very appreciative of your wonderful updates on how you are getting on with the R whenever you can find time, realizing you have a busy schedule to also contend with.
