Re: Which RF 70-200mm or should I stay with the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS

I'm in a similar situation. I have the EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II and EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS, and recently got the R5 but only have the RF 15-35 f/2.8L IS at the moment.

What do you shoot?

I shoot a couple things:

  • Landscape: I mostly use a 16-35, 24-70, and 70-300 for this setup. The 70-300 is more compact and lighter than the 70-200 f/2.8, and I don't need f/2.8 for landscapes.
  • Travel: I travel light and use a 16-35 and 24-70 when travelling.
  • Portraits: I got the 70-200 f/2.8 for portraits. But I discovered that I don't like portrait photography and rarely do it as a result. I also find 100+mm too long for my taste.

For RF, I really want an RF equivalent to the 70-300 for compactness. But it doesn't exist, so I've decided to just keep the EF 70-300 for now while I build up the RF lenses and wait for the RF 70-300. If they never release one, I may pick up the RF 70-200 f/4.
