One nagging question I've had pertaining to the R and ef glass, now while I know there is an expensive RF mount 50mm f/1.2 I've wondered how the ef mount 1.2 lens does with the mirror less bodies and adapter. I've tossed the idea around for a very long time to snag the 50L (ef) but heard it's sharpness and focus shift leaves a lot to be desired for it's price.

How is the ef 50mm ef 1.2L on the R (or RP?) I could deal with "artistically soft"

I have basically never really seen a post that didn't say adapted glass is as good or better on the R than it was on any other camera. Having nothing but EF glass so far, I have to agree. It's as good or better on the R than any other Canon DSLR I own or have owned.

Just wondering why using the phrase "it is much sharper on Smugmug": This image that you embedded here IS coming to your browser screen from Smugmug :)

Pekka, thanks for asking. It made me investigate further.

The preview and 4K version on Smugmug are sharp. But when I get the BB code for the max size allowed it is soft. I just compared the X3 on both and it is soft on both. So maybe I need to use the preview size for the forum? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It isn't obvious with color shots.

PS: I tried other sizes with the same results. If I click on the glasses icon it shows the preview size and it looks sharp, just like the preview image does on the Smugmug site. Apparently it just doesn't look sharp using any of the BB code links.

One person's "looking sharp" is another person's "egregious aliasing".

It is a harsh reality of imaging that there is no good way to resize a low-MP image by a small amount, without critical losses and trade-offs. There's no such thing as a 1.0MP image being resized to 0.5MP, and looking like it is the same, regarding microdetail. There must be artifacts of either the soft or the acute variety.

If you want to dictate exactly how the image is presented to the viewer, then you must do it at a size that the web software will not alter. You still have no control, of course, about what browsers and software and displays do to it beyond that. That is one of the big problems with discrete pixels, with the low MP counts that we use; people try to defend them and say that we already have enough resolution in our cameras and displays, but we clearly don't, as we suffer artifacts like the one you are complaining about. It is part and parcel of the reality of low densities that they artifact images and artifact them even more when you resample.

This character helped me test lights at a wedding this weekend. It was in a fairground room with a garage type door in full view behind.

On my EOS R I have it set to come up when I press "Info." In the settings, you can change which overlays are accessible when "Info" is pressed.

EDIT: improved the clarity of my statement


Canon EOS R | EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM • RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro • RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM • EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM • Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

I imagine he would appreciate a printed copy of that photo. It's a good photo.
