From technical perspective it is marvelous for sure. One think I don’t understand though. 90% of all the pictures I can see everywhere usually with a comment like “magical” would be almost identical if it had been taken with 24-70 2.8 maybe with 24-105. I have spent countless of hours by pixelpeeping and comparing RF 50 1.2 and 28-70 and decided that I will rather go with RF 70-200 for portraits, sport, landscape and 50 for newborn. I may add rumored 35L or 15-35L in future and I will be done... But you know what? 28-70 still excites me for sure...

You realise there's different lenses for different things right? You wouldn't use a 50 1.2 for sports, you wouldn't use a 70-200 for wildlife etc.

I prefer using the Sigma 105 1.4 for portraits but that's just me, also sure it's the photographer not just the lens which is why I found it funny when the guy was taking pictures of random street signs across the street with a $3000 lens.
