We are off to Kona at the end of April. Hoping to have success with the R for Milky Way shots. Not sure yet what lens, but I am leaning towards the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 G2.

Don’t know when the RF 15-35mm will come out, but Canon lenses don’t have great track record for coma in the corners with astrophotography.

Not sure if I want to spend the money on the Tammy and sell for a loss when the RF comes out or hold out for the RF and grab a lower cost fast manual prime for the stars.

Decisions, decisions...

Hello I would like to know has anyone compared with or without the canon ring lens for picture quality, and if so how much difference does it make shooting with the mirrorless lens, vs using the L lens with the ring?

Small sure takes away from how good it looks. Enlarged, it sure reveals how good the EOS R worked for you. Was that the black 70-300mm ?? Because I've read the glass is pretty good in that one.

I purchased the 70-300L back around 2012 or 13… And completely fell in love with it.. shooting then a 7D, it was so strong.it was my beginning here on POTN. I was shooting the small critters around my home with it. It was fast to focus and gave me a detail in fur that hit the spot very well. Then the 7DII… The two together were a step above in the winters light and dappled light of spring and summer. The image quality from the 70-300L has never let me down.

Now on days that offer dull grey light of January and February here in Ontario it is a better performer than the 100-400L and my go to lens for larger animals under these conditions.
Mounted on the EOS R its even better… I have nothing but good things to say about the 70-300L. Its outstanding in its IQ for landscape and wildlife. For a carry that's lighter and manageable on outings that involve snowshoes or a lot of miles their a great pair together.

This winter is my slowest in the last 10…. My drive has come to a stop. But as for the 70-300L …. it is outstanding on any camera. My Flickr is full of the 70-300L

Really nice. I had the 70-300L years ago and it's one lens I sorta regret ever selling.

Even in the worst light possible… 60 - 80 yards or more is no problem what so ever.

I could never sell mine… Its a super event lens as well. Does weddings and people so well… You'll make the wedding photog wish he had one.

Not sure what you are asking. Do you mean compare the basic adapter vs same lens with the adjustable ring adapter?

If that is what you mean, the adapters have zero effect on the lens. There are no optics in either, just air space. Any given lens would work the same regardless of which adapter you choose.

That's just plain beautiful scenery and photo.
The photo draws one into the scenery, across the foreground and up into the pass/valley between the peaks on left and on into the mist.
Love the colours.
Very nice.

I looked at an R with 24-105 yesterday. Felt as though it belonged.
Not sure, but put off by no stabilisation, but then did wonder how much I benefit from current cameras.
Need to look more at the tele. They get heavy. (I'm a 4 third user from way back)

How can you concentrate on work with that beautiful site right outside your window!?!?

Or maybe you're a park ranger!

If you are talking about IS on the RF24-105, it has it.

The depth of field was more narrow than expected ... just a few links, but the exposure came out pretty good. Just some window light through a shade.
