Re: Inexpensive RF (or EF + adaptor) for Astro in Africa

i've tried the ef 16-35 2.8 ii, sigma 20 1.4 and sigma 14 1.8, rf 16 2.8.  the ef 16-35 had the best image quality but was very front weighted with the adapter. both sigmas were bad on corners and extremely front/rear imbalanced on tripod, worse than the ef. the rf is best balanced and produced decent quality.  i ended up sticking with the rf due to the fact that i can put my R with it mounted in my jacket pocket and walk to the site in pitch black darkness without carrying a heavy backpack, and the problem of trying to unpack in pitch black.
