Thank you!

Your RF 24-105 make you happy with IQ or you noticed some issues with it ?
How you think, is wide angle good enough for taking landscapes ?

Please, share more photos. ;-)a

Okay, here is a Raw SOC and a Processed image for comparison using the EOS R / RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM combination.

The 1st image is a (down sized) 1200x1200 crop from the RAW frame, unprocessed, with a Full Resolution inset of the Ant. The Ant inset is a full resolution circular selection from the original, unprocessed Raw file.

The 2nd image has been processed using various Plug Ins (Nik Colour Efex, Topaz AI Clear, ON1).

I previously had a Canon EF 24-105mm F4 L and I was never satisfied with the overall image quality and edge-to-edge sharpness of my copy of the EF 24-105 F4 L.

I read a few on-line reviews and watched a couple of YouTube reviews of the new RF 24-105mm F4 L and these helped give me the confidence to purchase the EOS R / RF 24-105 F4 L kit. I have been 100% satisfied with the performance of that lens so far.

Cheers

Dennis

I have to say I have been impressed by what I have seen posted from the EOS R and the RF 24-105. Had Canon brought this camera out last August rather than the underwhelming 6D2, I would have purchased one. Instead I went in a different direction which more than served my needs.

I am waiting to see how the R and the RF series of lenses evolve in the next two years or so.

Here is an example of the image quality from the RF 24-105mm when you are caught out without your 100-400mm telephoto.

We were walking in our local Toohey Forest when my wife spotted this wild Koala in a Gum Tree and all I had was 105mm.:-)

EOS R Full Frame resized down to 1200x800 pixels.
Full Res 1200x800 crop from area shown.

Cheers

Dennis

Looks like the lens out-resolves the 30MP sensor on the R. That is a good thing, gives you a usable 12MP APS-C sized crop from native RF mount glass. Considering I still use my 40D (10MP) from time-to-time I like what I am seeing. Looks like a winner.

Here's a couple of examples of this lens behaving like a decent macro lens.:-)

These cute reptiles are Eastern Dwarf Tree Frogs or Eastern Sedge-frogs and measure approx. 20-25mm in size, i.e. quite tiny.

These were taken with the RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM under dim street lighting and despite the very low light levels, and green-on-green, the EOS R comfortably AF'd on the frog.:-D

I was lying on the wooden boardwalk, torso half overhanging the pond with arms outstretched and had no problems placing the AF point on the frog whilst viewing the outstretched flippy screen.

Cheers

Dennis

Sure, here is the Raw SOC full frame resampled to 1200x800. No processing, just the down sizing.

Cheers

Random shot from under the desk at work. Minor tweaks in PS Express on the iPad. Can’t get over the IQ even at 12800 ISO

Our IT guys are more about function over “fashion”...

Took the camera as I ran some errands today, thought the grey/gloomy weather worked for this shot
