Re: Worth getting the Canon R6 for just the f1.8 and f2.0 lenses?

Not worth it in my view.

The RF 35/1.8 is a pretty good lens, but it's definitely towards Canon's lower end of their consumer-pro spectrum.

I'd expect the Z 35/1.8 is a better lens, and can definitely confirm the FE 35/1.8 is a much better lens - especially in the AF department.

It's a more than capable stop gap until the RF 35L is out, but I personally think you'll get more from Sony or Nikon ecosystems if you wouldn't realistically plan on upgrading from the RF STM lenses.
