Im just adding to the hate and spreading fake news ;-)a, Nice, i have yet to get an RF lens but i do need a 35mm prime. Almost went with the RF but then backed out since i still own other 3 EF mount camera bodies i can use a 35mm with as well. Man i need to learn how to get rid of my stuff

This is exactly why I think Canon should offer an adapter that allows RF lenses to adapt to EF (legacy) bodies . . .

I'm hoping Monday or Tuesday. We rented a cottage for those days and the agencies that pretty much get weather predictions wrong all of the time are saying sunny and warm.

Both shots below with my 7D2. BIF with both the 7D2 and 5D5 were tough. Not enough horsepower for that combo. I had to continually pump the BBF to get it to focus which made me question how well it tracked. I'd need a IDX or II to compliment that rig. I'm pretty sure the 1.4 will be fine. I got the DO and 2X for stills but members here encouraged me to try BIF.

Here is blog on it. My question is 3rd from the bottom. Jake (Cyberdyne) pointed out that the 5D4 does not suffer the built in AF delay for light loss the 7D2. I tested both on stills and he was right but it still had trouble with BIF.

Also from this. http://arihazeghiphoto​graphy.com …-5d-mark-iv-field-review/ (external link) We will see if the R is better.


Now the not-so good news:

The bare super-telephoto servo drive is pretty fast and doesn’t leave much to be desired, it’s not quite as fast as a EOS-1D X (MKII) but it is certainly fast enough. With the EF Extender 1.4X III added, the servo drive remains quick, it can still keep up with most subjects. With the EF Extender 2X III, however, the story changes a bit. All of the AF points are active at f/8, just like the EOS-1D X Mark II, and the AF remains pretty accurate for static subjects. The servo drive speed and the percentage of critically sharp BIF frames however, takes a noticeable hit. It becomes challenging, and at times frustrating to keep up with BIF once the Extender 2X III is added. In good light, it is certainly possible to lock AF on BIF against complex backgrounds, but the success rate is nowhere as high as the EOS-1D X Mark II and for that matter the EOS-1D X. The AF can lag behind if the bird accelerates too quickly. This was a bit disappointing because otherwise the camera’s excellent 30 Mega-pixel image sensor and compact body could make it a killer light combo when attached to the EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II + Extender 2X III.

The R speaks RF and EF. The adapter is just a connector. Given the flange distance and the fact that such an adapter would have to translate EF and RF I don’t think we’ll ever see it. I don’t think it is a matter of wanting to offer it or not but more of a design limitation.

I think if that adapter were ever to be attempted it would turn out to be an extension tube, which would only make the RF lenses good for macro and nothing else on an EF mount.

Not to mention if RF lenses are focus-by-wire then you might not be able to focus them manually, and I'm not sure what the differences are between the existing EF mount pins and the extra pins on the RF lens mount.

Interesting this keeps popping up in this thread.

Common sense says it's easy to go from more pins to less pins as the same pins on RF probably do exactly the same things on EF lenses. Essentially ignoring those pins on the RF in order to use the lens on an EF camera would seem on the surface to be a near impossible task. I'm really not sure why this seems to surprise a lot of people.

Have you tried that option to reduce lag during burst shooting? It only works on RF lenses.

Has anyone wondered why there are no Case Numbers? They already had all that programming figured out years ago. How hard could have it have been to include them. I pretty comfortable with the parameters so I don't really need them but they sure were handy. I do miss having that option. I don't think it is advertised as a sports camera. Maybe that is a hint.

I have not tried it, I remember seeing that in the menu, but did not have an RF lens until now.
