Curious how you were able to take your camera with you to a game, would love to do this before they move out of Globe Life.

Yea, I was wanting to go to a couple games this year as well since this is the last year they will be in that stadium. I saw several games the first year they were in it and hope to see a couple more games before the season is gone and the prices rise in the new stadium. :-(

have you found any downsides? I am debating this lens. I am already using an EF adapter, so wondering if the RF is better than the f/2 EF.

We visited the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens and the resident pair of Australasian Grebes put on a nice show.:-)

I used a splash of on-camera flash as the birds were in deep shade and backlit.

Cheers

Here are examples of when the 1-Point AF on the EOS R "missed the mark" and appeared to lock on the very bright, specular BG and then when it did appear to lock on the eye of the Grebe. These are both 100% crops, Raw SOC images as displayed in Canon DPP V4.

The Red Square depicting the Single AF Point is the Canon DPP V4 representation of the size and position of the Single AF Point - I wonder how closely this software representation matches the actual pixels used for the actual AF Point?

Cheers

Dennis

1-Point AF - MISSED

Yes. The RF extends when focusing, especially in the macro range. It reminds me of the old 35f2 non-is or 50 1.4. The R will focus it to infinity when you turn off the camera which retracts the barrel. But if I’m not turning off the camera, I try to refocus so the barrel is retracted, since it seems vulnerable when extended. The EF lens focuses internally and does not extend.

This is purely opinion, but I would say focusing is slightly slower and noisier with the RF lens. Probably because of the macro. But it doesn’t really impact my use or video. Just something I noticed.

Again just opinion but I would say image quality is pretty similar between the two. The RF is smaller in size. Like the f2 IS went on a diet. Makes a big difference especially when the adapter is added to the EF lens.

My collection of flashlights - my wife thinks I have too many. Need to find a way to make money with them, that’s what got her to quit complaining about all my camera stuff... Anyone need a Freelance Flashlighter???

I'm fairly certain I have a couple of those.

I love a like, but feedback (including CC) is even better!

Size is one of the reasons that I picked up the RF 35mm over an EF 35mm. The macro feature on the RF 35mm is also really nice to have for when I don't have my 100mm macro with me. The extra third of a stop over the EF 35mm is just a bonus, as far as I'm concerned. I've added a picture of how significant the size difference between these two is when they're both mounted to the EOS R. The EF 35mm is also 30g heavier than the RF 35mm on top of the 100g that the mount adapter adds.

Received the EF-R adapter with CPL filter. Great deal via the Classifieds from member nikhilnh for $190 shipped.

Slapped it on my Tamron 85mm for a couple of quick test shots and all seems good. Nice and easy to adjust while framing with the thumb wheel falling naturally for my left hand while supporting the lens.

Nothing special, just a dirty water fountain to test the filter...
