I'll wait til black Friday to get the 11-22 - but I have two portrait shoots coming up and wanted the 32

My main cameras are RP + RF 24-105 F4 IS L with nano focus and control ring for EC which I love for the colors, relatively small size, SOOC jpgs. Also the RF 85 F2 IS for portraits. I also carry the 6d with EF 35 f2 IS and EF 100L. These and the 70-200 f2.8 L serve on commissioned shoots.

But I have been totally upset with Canon FOR YEARS in not giving a sub $500 50 mm that was sharp wide open without the CA.

Thus enter the m 32 F1.4 on the 32 mpxl m6 II -- it will be my 50 mm go to (hopefully).

Also Canon RF 14-35 is being introduced at such a high price, I will get the m 11-22 instead. The new R6 is only 20 mpxl and also too expensive for me. I'll rely on the 32 mpxl M6II and 11-22

I resisted the m6II because no internal EVF (since I use triggers all the time), but with the 32 and 11-22 I'll be using the back screen and not buying that lame EVF thingy. I use Odin triggers extensively during portrait shoots.

The 35 F2 IS will sit on the 6d. The 32 f1.4 will sit on the M6II. And the RF 85 F2 will sit on the RP during portrait shoots. For me I don't like changing lenses

so we shall see how I do on this specific use m setup. If I'm happy with it, I may also eventually get a 56 and a long tele... Canon IGNORING the m line is very upsetting to me and about their fear that m will impact their R system

That's quite similar to my own corporate portraits set up: RP with 85mm (or R6), 32mm mated to the M6II. All I can say is: They're both winners.

If I want my blur I just use 50 Art on full frame in stead of the 32mm on the M6II and that's it. Stepping closer at f/1.8 is much easier than running a second camera with a narrower field of view.

If the M6mkII is the side kick it runs either the 11-22mm or a telephoto (55-250 stm or 100-400mm contemporary).

Good choice! Enjoy and share images later pls!

What works for me is the M6II with 32mm on a tripod ready to take half-body portrait shots while my FF bodies are for head shots. That way, people I photograph don't even have to change their poses, often eliciting a more natural kind of smile because the shots are taken just seconds apart.

That's a great way to use those great lenses.

I love 50mm (equivalence)
