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.
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.
