Any personal experience or reviews of the RF 80mm F2 Macro IS ?
2

The RF 80mm F2 Macro IS really looks like a smart purchase for my R. I haven't found any reviews on it, just a few comments and very short Youtubes.

I have the excellent-value EF 85mm 1.8, which I would be selling off. There is no visibly significant f-stop distinctions between 1.8 & 2.0, and I gain (a) IS, (b) probably slightly better tracking, and (3) some macro-ish capability.

The RF 80mm F2 is not true macro, only .5. I really like my Tokina 100mm macro, but I will consider trying the RF 80mm F2 w/a RF extension tube.

Please share any 1st hand experiences with the RF 80mm F2 !

Thanks !
