I have not had any issues with this lens what so ever. Auto focus works flawlessly. These photos were shot in FF not cropped to x1.6 so its a true 15mm on one shot and 16mm on the other shot.

You can use this lens on a FF camera at 15-16mm without the heavy vignetting. You can also set up your R to x1.6 crop and use the entire range with no problem.. And not being an EF-S lens it wont force the camera to auto crop which I think its awesome..

I have used my 550d kit lens EF-S 18-55mm and not only it force crops but you will be shooting at 11 or 12mp out of this camera.. Not sure why the loss of MP..

The crop is a 11.6mb file Isaac, from the centre of the sensor. Having the 1.6 crop to flip on when ever its needed is kinda cool.

Sony is the same such smaller file size in Super35 mode

Because the image projected from the lens does not cover the whole sensor, so the sensor just throws away the pixels outside of the 1.6 crop. Even with a 42mp Sony, you only get an 18mp crop image. I'm digging my M6 with dual pixel AF and 24mp. :)

Thanks for the info, I have the Tokina AT-X 14-20 F2 PRO DX and I was wondering how it would work on the R.

Looks like you will get more usage from your lens on FF then mine since yours starts at 14mm. 14mm will probably be here heaviest vignetting you see out of this lens in FF. 15-20mm you should be good and free from vignetting. I think the option to make this camera a crop camera is awesome if you need that extra range on any EF lens.

Here is the Moon from our back garden, taken with the EOS R / Extender x1.4 Mk III / Extender x2.0 Mk II / EF 400mm F5.6L combination.

This image is a single Frame Grab from a 4K video sequence resized down and cropped to 1200x900.

The combined optics FL is 1120mm at F16 and there were no problems with AF.

Cheers

Dennis

I thought that between the front legs was the face of a baby deer :-)

Such an imagination! As soon as you pointed that out, I couldn't not see it :)

LOL too funny, I was thinking the same exact thing, John.

Dennis, I think this is the most detailed moon shot that I've ever seen. Unreal, man!

I really like these street scenes, especially the reflections + the colorful lighting. I hate this saying, but it's so true in this case: your photos are "a feast for the eyes". :-)

I don't think I have ever seen it so good.. fantastic job for such a crappy little camera... I say that with tongue in cheek because I'm tied of the negative bull crap and comparisons to yesterdays cameras. Almost had enough of it. My plan is like yours... just out do them with every shot. I have been waiting to shoot the moon but its been behind all the cloud and the earth.

I have got to get this rig setup like yours .... so good

There is no way to have a crop without the loss of original MPs. It is 18 million pixels that are being cropped away. The camera does not insert an internal 1.6x TC when it detects an EF-S lens. The camera could upsample back to 30MP in firmware, like digital zoom, but that would cause unnecessary microdistortion (160% is a bad resampling ratio and hard to implement in RAW without forcing the one demosaic method in-camera), and have no value except the impressive number of MPs in a bloated file.

$2819 at Georges for Aussies. That's the first discounted price for the R I'm aware of.
