EF-S 24mm 2.8 and the R7.
Re: EF-S 24mm 2.8 and the R7.
Is not exactly a normal lens, but sits between the 35 and 50 FF equivalents which makes it perfect for general photography.
It's closer to the 120+ year old definition of a standard lens than Oscar Barnack's 50mm on 35mm film was. That older definition was for a focal length equal to the diagonal of the negative. Barnack chose 50mm, as it gave the same angle of view as the 80mm standard lens for 57mm (2¼") square negatives if you were to crop the image to a 3:2 (36:24) aspect ratio (and it was easy and handy). An awful lot of 35mm compact rangefinder cameras of the 1960s to the 1980s had focal lengths between 38mm and 45mm, perfect for general photography.
Correct, 43mm being the FF diagonal.
This 24mm is a bit wider than normal since APS-C diagonal is 27mm.
The sweet spot of focal lengths.
It is quite versatile. With a suitable crop, it can shoot decent portraits, and with IBIS on the R7, you can shoot crazy slow shutter speeds and still get sharp photos in dim light. Here is my daughter (shot with a 430EX ii flash bounced behind me) and one of our library shot before dawn this morning with just an overhead light on in the room. This EF-S 24 2.8 reminds me of the performance on FF from my EF 40 2.8, with the exception that my RP doesn't have IBIS.

Holy Stone produces dozens of low-cost drone models aimed at consumers. We look at the HS710 and HS175D to see if they stack up to other sub-250g offerings. Are these secretly great or more like toys?
It's small, light, cheap and extremely wide but is it any good?
