Hmm... I didn't realize it before b/c I automatically assumed it'd be great, but the RF 35mm lens is REALLY bad for tracking subjects........Servo AF is really choppy and not accurate...sometimes just doesn't even focus

35mm 1.8, grain added FYI

In this regard, is the RF 50 better in those situations?

Yes. As is the RF 85L :).

I would concur. But RF lens are really good at tracking. The 85 1.4 IS also does a good job.

I have not tried it. I am guessing so, because it has a USM and not STM. STM lenses are really noisy and not smooth in my experience so far.

I compared my body and lens to another new one in the store and it's about the same. The one in the store seemed better so we did a reset of settings for both cameras and then it was even. Not sure what I had done wrong before.. And indeed the other copy of the RF 35mm STM lens was equally bad at tracking. Just try tracking your hand or something in front of you. It sometimes loses focus and doesn't grab for a while....not to mention it's super noisy.


In the split second I had to take this shot--I am very glad I had the EOS R. I would say I'm an expert at using Nikon pro bodies like D750 and I think in this situation I would have missed focus. Instead, I got one of my favorite shots ever. I actually used face tracking and servo for this one. Shot at I believe f2.0 My first thought was this last photo of the sequence was the best one, but do you think the earlier one is better?

I do. Works fine. I don't see any difference in lens performance from my 5D2. I don't have the Sport version, but the C version. I use the "adjustment ring" version of the adapter.
