Picked up the Canon EOS R & Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens kit today and on the way home, stopped by the Roma Street Parklands where a couple of wild Eastern Water Dragons posed nicely for me.:-)

The flip-out swivel Rear LCD Display helped me get low down and dragging my finger on the Rear LCD to place the AF Point on the eye was quite useful.

Cheers

Dennis

A couple from our back garden today with the EOS R & RF 24-105mm F4 L IS.

Close to min focus distance at the 105mm end.

Cheers

From a walk at the University of Queensland this morning, the Jacaranda trees are out in bloom.

It was a little gusty so I thought I may lose some sharpness and definition but the EOS R / RF 24-105mm F4 L IS combo seemed to work around this issue.

ISO100, F5.6, 1/125 sec at 31mm.

Cheers

Dennis

This was a tricky shot, taken crouching down, EOS R / RF 24-105 poking through a wire fence dangling over the murky lake. The bright sun on the rear LCD made it extremely difficult to compose and focus so I was just pointing in the general direction of the Turtle, hoping that the AF would lock on.

I missed several shots but this one worked and I continue to be impressed with the image quality from this lens, taken at the 105mm end.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Amazing series.
Colourful, sharp. Very nice photos.
There's been mixed comments re this camera elsewhere here, but it certainly can perform.

The people who own it along with good L glass know what it can do. For photography, it's awesome. I don't have this RF 24-105 lens yet but may find a way to get one sometime next year.

The lizard shots above are beautiful for color and detail.

Here is a "sort of" comparison between:

  • Canon EOS R + RF 24-105mm F4L at 105mm, and
  • Canon 5D Mk IV + EF 7-200mm F2.8 L Mk II at 200mm

They were taken on different visits, under different lighting and in different circumstances.
  • The EOS R shot was taken during the static display where the handlers show off the birds.
  • The 5D Mk IV was taken during the show where the handler was walking around with the bird.

Cheers

Dennis

That one with the EOS R is sick.

Just to complete the set, here is another "sort of" comparison between:

Canon EOS R + RF 24-105mm F4L at 105mm, and
Canon 5D Mk IV + EF 7-200mm F2.8 L Mk II at 200mm

Again they were taken on different visits, under different lighting and in different circumstances.:-)

The EOS R shot was taken during the static display where the handlers show off the birds.
The 5D Mk IV was taken during the show where the handler was walking around with the bird.

These comparisons are "real world" comparisons where the user attempts to get their best shot within the constraints of their skill level and the various environmental variables that change between shots and sessions. They are not the classical laboratory test chart comparisons.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

This thread is worth a bump.

I'm wondering whether to get this lens. It's one that I don't need, but could gain enough nice photos to make the purchase worthwhile.

I missed the versatility of the Canon EF 24-105 F4L on my 5D Mk III so I decided to get the EOS R / RF 24-105mm F4L IS USM kit as I had read a few favourable lens reviews about this lens.

I was completely gobsmacked when I began to use it - I had previously sold my copy of the EF 24-105 F4L as in my usage, it just did not produce satisfactory results for an "L" lens. The reverse has been true for the RF 24-105mm, its almost glued permanently to the EOS R and is a very comfortable and competent walk around combination.

Here it is "acting" like a decent macro lens on the EOS R.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Hi.

Now I'm want to buy eos R but dont know, should I sell my 24-70 f2.8 mark 1 and get the RF 24-105 or better to stick with more faster lens.
How you think, its a good trade old 24-70 for RF 24-105 ?

My personal preference, based on what I shoot and my general needs, would be for the RF 24-105 F4 L as follows:

  • I do not need F2.8 to keep the shutter speed higher (by 1 stop) to freeze any movement in low light situations, so F4 is fine.
  • Generally I don't have a great need for the shallow DOF of F2.8 wide open.
  • I prefer the additional reach of 105mm rather than 70mm.

Additionally, should you find it useful the RF 24-105 has the "Control Ring" towards the front of the lens that can be configured to change Aperture, Shutter Speed, Exposure Compensation or ISO.

Cheers

Dennis
