Did Canon explain why/how this happened? I'm assuming it was covered under warranty.

Bummer, I got one of my bodies at Best Buy (my first one) but no problems yet. I have CPS so I'd probably go that route anyway but good to know that those guys will try to avoid the exchange.

That's horrible. I feel for you. Photography is one of the main draws of travel for me. I'm sure the experience was still amazing, but wish you could have captured it the way you wanted to.

Canon rumors this morning- "Canon to announce EOS-1D X equivalent EOS R system camera in 2021?". Hope their information is wrong.

I feel the same, Wayne. Your old 16-35 is still holding me down, but I'm getting tired of adapters. The 15-35 is giving me the itch. I've also considered swapping the 50L and 85L, but I think my current EF's with adapter are still smaller than the RF's, not to mention all the green it would take to make the switch. I've also dabbled in Sony, so I was just this morning toying with the idea of selling everything I have in Canon full frame and switching to an A7R4 with all native lenses. Then I think I should just sell all the full frame stuff and get a couple more lenses to round out my EF-M kit. As you said, blessed to be in a position to have this be what I'm thinking about - though my wife has had serious health issues all year, so perhaps all of the photography thoughts are just a healthy distraction for me at the moment. Lots of thought to "simplifying" our lives this year. Looks like the wife is finally on the mend, but this summer has taken years off my life...

Edit: Wayne changed his mind? lol

I decided to try the new RF 24-240. It's a compromise to use it instead of my L glass, but the prospect of taking just one lens that doesn't weigh much was too intriguing. It's definitely not as good as the Canon 70-200 and 24-105 combo I usually use, but so far so good. Here's one from yesterday with the R and the 24-240:

One of my first tries with video. Handheld, 35mm IS on. I used 1/30" but Now I know I should have used double the frame rate.

Loving the colors out of this camera after 6 years with Nikon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After experiencing Canon colors really for the first time I know I would have saved easily a couple hundred hours or more of shooting 100 weddings of adjusting for skin tone, white balance, consistency, etc..

Problem I see with the EOS R, and to some extent.....I see on a 5D4......and that I rarely see it anymore on a 1Dx2 and D5

And I will assume with Sonys Eye focus you wont have this problem as well

He aimed at the grooms face area. Camera jumped to highlight behind subject and the shot was OOF

This has beed a Canon Achilles heal for a few year. Its a combination of operator technique and setting up the camera to minimize this.

I have seen several instances of this with the R.....My guess is this camera can be set up better and his technique can be improved

Irregardless.....I see it more on the R files and I see it on another shooters files as well

Focus is going to highlight if not enough contrast is present. 1Dx2 and D5 have just about eliminated this for 95% of the time

My 5D IV is jumping to the background if there is more light there, my 6D II a bit less ... I was thinking that maybe with the mirrorless system they got it right ... it seems the problem is still present ...
Can other owners comment on how big this issue is? (especially on low light situations - church, restaurant etc)

I have just got my RF24-240 lens today – yes, early I know :lol: Don't ask
I don’t have any useful shots to post just at the moment that are over or above the samples already floating around the web. And as it's just clouded over and started raining hard here it might be a while. However in the 3 hours I’ve had it, I can tell you the following things that may be of some use to people out there.

1) No surprise, it’s not top-notch L quality glass nor are the images from it ultra sharp. BUT, I have got far softer and more disappointing results from allegedly “quality” glass costing considerably more than this lens does. It IS however sharper than the EOS-M series equivalent super-zoom (EF-M 18-150), and I’ve always been pleased with that lens as a walk-around on my M50, but it ISN’T as sharp as the RF 24-105

2) The zoom is smooth and nice to use, as is the fly-by-wire focusing. Much better feel and more responsive than other electronic focusing Canon lenses I have in my arsenal. It DOES zoom in the "correct" direction for Canon

3) It’s nicely balanced and sits well in the hands on an R body

4) Some people complained in preview reviews of sample lenses that the focus and zoom are swapped in position compared to normal Canon glass. This is indeed true, but then so is my old favourite crop-body lens, the Canon EF-S 15-85. You just learn to get over it. It may be the way Canon is going as I believe (don’t shoot me if I’m wrong) that the upcoming RF 70-200 has the same “issue” i.e. zoom at the front, focus at the rear of the barrel

5) The (very useful) zoom lock button is in a different place to other lens locks, but is actually easily accessible by taking your index finger off the trigger button while still keeping your eye to the EVF when you realise you left it locked and want to zoom in. The change of placement is actually an improvement IMHO

6) It’s a tad soft at the extreme 240mm, but I’m pixel-peeping to the max and being picky. If you never print very large or crop to the extreme, then don’t sweat it

7) As a “take only one lens” walk-about lens, it’s ideal, and it’s what I bought it for. Would I want to use it on a paid shoot – maybe, but only time will tell

8) The current lens profile in Adobe ACR/Lightroom is not a patch on the one in Canon’s own DPP software, especially in respect of correcting the chromatic aberration – the Adobe profile fails big-time in this aspect. There is no specific profile in the current DxO Photolab 2 (v2.1.3), but it will be available in release 2.2.0 for the R (allegedly available later in September). DxO profiles are always streets ahead of the Adobe ones IMHO, but even DxO without a specific profile corrects the CA flawlessly right out of the box unlike ACR/LR that allegedly has a proper profile for the lens. Turn off the CA correction in ACR and you can see that it’s worse, but it’s still pretty appalling at doing its job even with a “proper” profile turned on. And yes I can use the eye dropper to get it right, but why should I have to when 2 other pieces of software do it properly first-time round without any tweaking. Edit: See images below

9) If you have the lens profile turned off in ACR/LR, the images have a very sharply defined and harsh vignette in the extreme corners at 24-26mm ish. DxO Photolab 2 shows this all the time as it (as of v2.1.3) doesn’t have a distortion profile yet. This harsh clipping can be seen in the sample RAW files available via one of the review websites too – it’s not just my lens copy. Something physical clearly clips the corners in the lens design as it’s not “normal” vignetting, but the sort you get with a physical obstruction such as a deep filter or wrong lens hood. Edit: See images below

10) On the subject of lens hoods, the 24-240 doesn’t come with one. It takes an EW-78F, but as I cannot source one of those until later this month, I have successfully tried the EW78E that fits my EF-S 15-85 lens. It doesn’t latch securely, but is better than nowt until I can get the correct hood. This is NOT the source of the clipping mentioned above before anyone say it – it clips even without filters or lens hood attached. Edit: As I have a cheap copy of the "wrong" lens hood, I was happy to try a small mod. If you look at the "thread" on the hood itself, there are two end-stops for want of a better term that stop the hood rotating too far. I trimmed those back by approx 0.5mm -1mm using a sharp craft knife and the hood latches and stays put very well now.


Edit: Added example re CA in different processing software to show how bad Adobe ACR/LR is even with a profile compared to both DxO Photolab 2 without any profile and DPP with full Canon profile. Also lens profile on/off in ACR showing the clipping at 24mm. Apologies for difference in exposure of DPP image - I don't use DPP much and couldn't easily match quickly - I have to rush out shortly.
The CA examples are 100% crops from the top-right of the other image. Taken from JPEG exports, so don't judge absolute sharpness from these!

Thank you for posting these. I just started a thread for the RF 24-240 in the Lens Sample Photo Archive section for it.

A very late fire season this year in the Sierra. Thankfully the fire was heading up the hill and not the other direction towards Big Pine California.
