Re: New to Canon EOS R, seeking advice on gear

Would like to know your budget also. The R6 is likely a must. If you can get 2 lenses, get the 24-70 and the 85 1.2. They will serve all your purposes well, the 24-70 is no macro but for hobby-ish food photography it would usually be more than enough, not to mention you can crop in a bit more in post. 24mm is fantastic for landscapes. The 85 will handle both your portrait and dog needs. 70-200 can be upgraded to / bought later when you can, it has much better range that would be nice at events or capturing your dog from real far, but I don't see the immediate benefits.

If you can only get one, competition boils down to the 85 f2 or 24-70. I personally would take the 24-70 here, as you get a bit less macro range but very useful 24mm view. Portraits at 70mm is not too bad compared to 85mm.
