Disappointing
4

I have been using my 13 years old EF 24-105mm F4L IS USM with adapter on my R6. But it is rather bulky (long) specially when gravity moves it to the 105 position, there is no lock on it. A technical issue is that the stabilizer motor is active most of the time when the camera is switched on.

So I bought the RF 24-105mm F4L IS USM. Looks beautiful. But then I did a comparison with the old EF lens. First just some shots, then a more serious compare on a tripod with a newspaper on the wall. There is no doubt, at 50 mm the old EF lens is considerable sharper on the edges than the new RF. I even did not compare it at other focal ranges, I returned the lens, money back. The cost is not worth the upgrade (downgrade).
