Re: Tamron is leaving $ MONEY $ on the table not making EF-M, Fuji-X lens

Do you think f/7.1 is limiting though, in that kit lens?

If you're looking for shallow DOF, limited.

Otherwise, gets good reports.

I do confess however. I bought the same deal a month ago. By now I have 5000 odd shots taken, a lot of them just learning how to use the RP. But I still have yet to mount that kit lens.

I feel I'd do the same.  Have you sprung for any RF lenses yet?  Many of them do seem cost-prohibitive to me.  I really enjoy shooting with the fast M primes, and I wouldn't want to upgrade to FF only to go back to shooting with the slower kit lens.  Of course, I could adapt EF lenses, but then I wonder whether I wouldn't just be happier with a 6D instead of RP.  Oh well, in truth, it's still all hypothetical.  Fun to dream ...
