  • I hate to break it to you, but 50 1.2 should of never been a reason to begin with. All of the major manufacturers are roughly equally capable of offering quality lenses, choosing one or the other ...
  • Except Android phones have the same issues, or lower quality stabilization.

  • I feel like RRS gets bashed outside of the U.S. a little too much. I was in SE asia for several months and had no issues. I had a lock break, and they just sent me out a replacement that arrived...

  • Canon didn't want you to change lenses without turning off the body with their DSLRs either. You can go ahead and do it with a mirrorless, and more than likely you won't have an issue; just like ...
  • Canon wants you to turn the camera off before you change lenses, and you really should do that.  If you do change lenses without turning the camera off it's not the end of the world, but each time ...
  • The 28-70 f2 was the second lens I bought in the RF system (after the 50 1.2); I had it for about a week before I decided it just wasn't for me. It's a great lens, and does a really good job in low ...
  • I sold my EF to fund the RF.  The IQ difference between a newer EF 70-200, and the RF is negligible, but there are subtle differences.  Gordon Laing probably has the best video highlighting ...
  • Did you guys do the measurements, or is that the stated leg angle? Because other sites, and FLM itself have the leg angles listed at 23° for this specific...

  • Yes, I have the 15-35 f2.8, 50 1.2, 35 1.8, and 24-105 f4.  None exhibit this, nor has any other 70-200 2.8 that I've handled as far as I can remember.  Anyhow, it's on its way back, so no ...
  • Sure.  If you're not very mechanically inclined I wouldn't suggest it either, but checking for a loose set isn't exactly a difficult procedure, and has been suggested a few times for other lenses ...
  • The gripe I have with FLM is the same I have with ProMedia; the leg angles are too narrow relative to Gitzo/RRS. FLM dips under 23° for their primary leg angle, while comparable RRS are 26°, or...

  • I think it might actually be the gasket that isn't providing enough resistance, or isn't thick enough that it introduces play.  On some advice I tried tightening the set screws on both the body ...
  • I think it's mostly rotational, but it does seem to be able to dip slightly down and to the left, and back.  I'll try and make a video later.  On another forum they mentioned if I felt it while ...
  • Created discussion thread RF 70-200 f2.8 Mount fit
    So, I finally got in another backordered 70-200 f2.8 (after sending one back a year ago to wait and see if Canon cleaned up some uniformity issues on the production), and I've noticed straight ...
  • You should post samples.  I really don't think there is a flawless copy of this lens around. It's a great lens, but it is prone to this type of thing; something my friends and I noticed a number of ...
  • A couple of things. Since you’re sending it back, could you post the serial number so that we can take a look at the production date. And when did you pick it up?  As far as I know B&H has been ...
  • Nobody can answer this with any sort of certainty.  I doubt even Canon can; I'm sure they have planned product cycles, but things will also depend on external factors like economic conditions, ...
  • I chose to skip the R5 for now, and focus on getting glass.  For my uses the R is just a better option than the R6; though I don't shoot wildlife or sports.  The IQ differences between the R and ...
  • Honestly, I only like shoulder bags for very short trips out.  A day trip with two lenses means a backpack for me, and I'm very partial to the value, durability, and functionality of the Wandrd ...
  • It's a 15-35.  At 15 it has some vignetting and barrel issues that are fairly well documented, like just about every single 16-35 out there.  It's a fantastic lens, with some heavier than normal ...
