Re: Purpose-centric advice buying a new camera

I would post this in the EOS R forum.  Might get some camera choice push back in here.

If you’re only willing to get one lens you might want a speed light with the R with no built in flash.  The RF 24-240mm USM covers a 10x’s zoom. JPEG’s are great and raw files opened in Canon’s DPP4 software are also great and easy to work on.

Being a 10x zoom, it benefits from Digital Lens Corrections, especially at the wide end. Users love it, but people looking at uncorrected raw files on test charts like to dump on it.  It’s not meant to be used without lens corrections. 
If big range isn’t a concern, then the 24-105 f/4 L lens would be good.

If you want a second lens for lowlight, indoors, use your speed light money on the RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro or the RF 50mm F/1.8 STM.
