BTW anyone else notice that this new RF 50 doesn’t have a separate control ring? But a switch...

Canon did this with the RF 24-240mm and the RF 24-105mm STM lenses.


I expect it is going to be common in the budget friendly line of lenses.


I don't mind this on the RF 24-240mm lens I have. It is better than not having a dedicated control ring at all.


Also, I think the overwhelming majority of people using these lenses will not be using MF and dedicating the ring to the "control" function.

+3 Like myself!
