Here a comparison with the EF lens. Seems like it's much better.

I would agree the corners are sharper with the RF lens but not "way better" as he claims. Other than this, I don't see much daylight between the two lenses. Specifically, not over $100 worth of daylight. Plus, I would much rather have the AF/MF switch on the EF lens than the AF/Control switch on the RF lens.

Regardless of what I think, Canon will sell this lens like hotcakes at an IHOP.

Agree on the performance.

The size difference (vs adapter) is so worth $100 to me. It turns your camera into a whole different class size. With the Rp it feels like I'm shooting m4/3 with a small prime lens again. It makes the 35mm f1.8 feel huge.

I am not that picky over an inch extra length and four ounces added to a lens that is already very small and lightweight. Especially on a body the size/weight of the R/R5/R6. I can see where RF lens might be worth the added cost of replacing the EF lens on a camera like the RP.

I mean we can have this same argument for just about every RF vs EF lens in the lineup, I guess.   Most EF lenses are pretty good and adapt just fine.  Many will not see the need to switch to RF native mount.
