Out of curiosity: Assuming the entire RF lens setup exists (including the ones to come 2020), do you still buy EF lenses new? Even if there's an RF equivalent?

I assume many still do that, since either the RF equivalent is extremely expensive or because they want to use something like the drop in filter adapter.

Or do you see it as "lost investment", since the future is RF anyway, the lenses too long and big with the adapter etc?

Personally, I'd see EF lenses as a chance to get very good lenses at a much better price (including Sigmas and Tamrons).

Since the price gets even better (1/3th off) buying used ones, i don't buy new EF lenses.  Some lenses are only 10% off when bought used (85mm f/1.4 IS USM for example). I can imagine  a new one is more appealing in this case.

I love the whole change to mirrorless. If you don't mind the size so much there are boat loads of affordable EF glass on the used marked. If you want great IQ on a budget it's party time.

EF glass = bang for my buck
