Wow it's tiny! But no IS it seems...

And no Macro. This cheapo lens is precursor to the next entry-level R body (along with that rumored slow standard zoom).

I don’t need either feature, but no IS means Canon is nudging people toward IBIS bodies. Or, could all of the future R’s perhaps have IBIS? Or is Canon just trying to maximize R5/R6 sales while they can.

I do hope this lens focuses faster than the new RF 85/2. Personally I’d rather be spending $600+ for a good 50/1.4 USM with ultra-quick AF.

Has anybody here used the RF 50/1.2L + R5 for fast-moving sports? Is the 50L’s AF fast enough?

I am surprised people shoot sports with 50s................

As for the 50 1.8, it looks disappointingly like the awful nifty fifties we got on EF mount. Holding out hope that they worked some magic with coatings and newly designed elements as the 35 1.8 is small and (mostly) good. But I'm a little surprised. It looks shorter than the 35 which is odd considering the longer FL. We will see
