And looking at the size and pricing of some of the new mounts lenses I don't see the "advantage" of the larger mount. Except maybe the extreme corners are going to be a little sharper on some lenses

Not to mention that the new RF lenses all have insane vignetting which is funny because theoretically wider mount should have less vignetting.

Strange. The only one of the new lens that I have seen a good write-up on yet was the Nikon 35 2. It too had some vignetting. "Some" doesn't surprise me at all. Now "insane"...... I will keep an eye on that. If true it just speaks more to my "rushed" theory

And as much as Canon fanboys want you to believe, the average people (including professional photographers) do not buy into a system because of lenses, they buy into the system usually because they look at the body specs first and then affordability.

I disagree. I think most people spending the money these systems cost are considering many factors. Lenses are one of them.in the case of the 28-70 2.0 that lens could be a game changer for event photographers.......if they have an unlimited budget and the R wasn't.....well.......so Canon as of late. Speaking of that. It really seems to me that Canon just rushed a prototype out because they are worried about the competition.

One of the main things that I shoot for a living is weddings and events and I've freelanced for many studios and people, having your lens go to at least 24mm is the bare minimum, and alot of times 24mm is not even wide enough especially in tight spaces.

Again I am gonna disagree. There is a reason they make UWA lenses. I get that 24 has become the defacto "standard" but it just opens a new route. In a world where the bodies are capable and the lens isn't astronomically expensive I would probably be willing to trade 4mm for an extra stop. Of course we all have our own styles and I think consumer choice is a great thing. I am not going to disparage the creation of unique lenses. Although if that f2.0 was a Sony product I am sure you know what the Canikonites comments would be. "Sony overcharges" "look at the size" "it's gonna be terrible. All Sony lenses are terrible" and yadayada
