There's been some on and off interest in light/cheaper lenses for the R/RP since we have a lack of native RF lenses, still. I've gone ahead and made a couple albums in my Flickr just for this and have been updating them (and will continue to)...

EF 85mm f/1.8 USM (adapted on the R)... VERY light edits, practically SOOC... I don't have a EF 85mm f/1.8 USM anymore, returned it in lieu of the RF 28-70 f/2L, but here's what I've got...


EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM... Likewise, I wasn't able to improve much beyond SOOC. I still have it and will continue to update the album over time.


RF35mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM... These are all in-camera RAWs. Once, again, very minimal edits. Still have it...


I've found the R needs the least post processing. It's metering is even smarter than the EOS M50 before it that I owned which is to say, very smart. In-Camera RAW, frankly, is all you need. Sure you can Lightroom stuff, but it's gotten so smart, that's largely only a creative affair, not a fix-it / optimize it affair.

Lastly, yes, I used to have the Back2M screenname, I switched after shooting with the R for a few months, seemed silly me having an M screenname for the aforementioned M50, but, now shooting R.


Wow that 35mm album is fantastic!
