I like the colour of those squirrels. Probably look good on a Lamborghini.

OK, we have the ludicrous RF 28-70mm f/2L, the mildly insane RF 50mm f/1.2L, the awesome 24-105mm f/4L, and the affordable and spectacular RF 35mm f/1.8 macro.


What other lenses do you want in the RF mount, at what build level, and at what price point? My understanding is Canon is putting EF/EF-S lenses on the back burner to focus on RF mount lenses. If you were in charge, what would you pursue?

I really don’t see myself selling my 70-200mm 2.8 IS II, 100-400mm II or 1-24mm f/4L for RF replacements should they appear. Even if the R Mark II is a 50MP beast with 10fps AF/tracking that made me jettison my EF mount bodies, I think it would cost too much to upgrade vs just using the ones I have with an adapter.

For me, I would like to see the next lenses be a “consumer+” build combo with a 18-55mm f/3.5-4.5 and 55-250mm f/4-5.6 pair in the $400-$600 range or sub $1000 combined. Build and optically a step up from the 18-55mm kit lenses and the EF-S 55-250mm one, but keeping them affordable for the masses. Put the money in the optics, go with polycarbonate bodies for weight and cost savings. Perfect two-lens solution for travel and all-around GP photography.

Thoughts?

Agreed, that’s the same for me. I’m looking for the plastic, light weight pancakes in 35 and 50 with sensational IQ to make the R a somewhat smaller, inconspicuous kit. A non-L kit lens with killer IQ with a smaller aperture. All of the R lenses so far are gargantuan, let’s see how they innovate smaller.

I'm guessing the 35mm is about as small as it will get. Perhaps a 50mm f/1.8-2.8 will be a bit smaller. If you want small and light, the EOS M system is phenomenal. Definitely slower than the R, but very capable and take really fantastic images.

I don’t think the 35mm is particularly large. RF 35mm f/1.8 IS macro 52mm filter thread vs Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC 67mm filter thread. Similar capability, similar price point. Tamron has a little heavier duty build, but otherwise comparable lenses. RF 35mm is physically quite a bit smaller.

And the RF 24-105mm f/4IS vs the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 VC

I’m not sure how much “thicker” the f/2.8 requires vs the f/4, but I imagine a 18-55mm f/3.5-4.5 could be done in a physically smaller package than the RF 24-105mm

This is from Canon Rumors. The-Digital -Picture did a pretty good review of the 28-70 F/2

https://www.canonrumor​s.com …anon-rf-28-70mm-f-2l-usm/ (external link)

Complete review:

https://www.the-digital-picture.com …8-70mm-f-2L-USM-Lens.aspx (external link)

"The Canon RF 28-70mm F2 L USM Lens is a large, heavy and expensive lens that is also awesome. Garnering a world’s first on its credit list, this lens brings the f/2 aperture to the extremely useful standard zoom lens. With the RF 28-70mm F2 L Lens in your hand, it is like having a large kit of prime lenses always mounted on the camera. That this single lens may be able to replace a kit of alternative prime lenses makes those three downsides much more tolerable. The image quality provided by this professional-grade, all-around-high-performing lens significantly lessens any pains remaining.

I read that review today as well. People thought the first iPhone was crazy too and laughed at me when I paid $600 for the thing. Look where we are now...

And today Apple revised their first quarter gross revenues 'downward' to $85 Billion and people are freaking out.
