mpb002: What ever happened to cameras that did what they are supposed to do, take pictures. I think Canon should just work on improving their already stellar cameras. If people want video let them purchase video cameras. I think Canon should probably eliminate video from some models. They probably wont though because the other companies are including it in their cameras.

News flash, these cameras ARE video cameras now. Lots of people use cameras like these exclusively for video and professional video work at that. That saying doesn’t make sense anymore.

sh10453: I hope that there will be a version without the 8K video capability and more emphasis on performance and action.
I would think that many potential buyers of this camera don't care about 8K video.
Personally, I'd rather have a higher frame rate as well as stacking capability (like the RP), than 8K Video that I'm not willing to pay for an 8K monitor to match.
Anyway, beware of the elephant when the elephant wakes up. His kick or stomp can be crushing.

Why would having 8k video affect anything else? Video is here to stay and it will always be included in every model at this point. I think there’s an extremely low chance that there’s another version of this camera

PAntunes: An entire article explaining why the R5 will be a great camera with features people will need and how much better they'll be compared to the competition. Shouldn't this have the "sponsored" tag?

This is hilarious.. DPR can’t win. A few months ago they “hated” Canon and were a bunch of Sony fanboys, now they’re writing articles “sponsored” by Canon? Hahaha

Richard Kwon: The front dial should be in the front, not top. : (

Have used Canon, Sony and Nikon and I personally prefer the dial on top. Obviously it’s a preference thing though.

Where are all the people who always comment how DPR loves Sony so much and is probably paid by them?

Jonathan F/2: The Canon 70-200mm 2.8 L RF looks way better than the Tamron with plasticky build and no lens stabilization.

I would sure hope so for nearly triple the price.

janist74: Additional info from Petapixel:
"Compared to the popular EF version of this lens, the upcoming RF version is much more portable — it’s 27% shorter (5.69in/145mm vs 7.8in/199mm) and 28% lighter (37.87oz/1066g vs. 52.6oz/1480g)."

1066g. Wow! Suddenly the Tami 70-180mm starts to look heavy! :)

Why does the Tamron look too heavy?? It’s 200+ grams lighter than the Canon.

dpfan32: a 50-150 for APS-C would have been nicer...

As others have said. Sigma made two versions of a 50-150 and both didn’t sell well. If that lens was in high demand it would have. Tamrons fe lenses have been in extremely high demand and this one will be too. They know what they’re doing.

EXkurogane: First they chopped off 4mm at the wide end of the 28-75. Now they chopped off 20mm on the long end. All in the name of weight reduction. 🙄

I myself wouldn't buy any normal range zooms that start from 28mm, I use 24mm a lot.

Well congratulations. The lens isn’t for you. You can spend twice as much on the very good but super heavy and extremely expensive Sony 70-200 f2.8 GM lens. Enjoy the extra 20mm

DeathArrow: I don't like these weird focal lengths. 28-75, 70-180.
What's wrong with 24-70 and 70-200?

Size/price/weight. Have you ever seen the 28-75 compared to a 24-70? It’s tiny. Same with this new one clearly. Half the weight of the normal 70-200 monsters. Plus if you want that kind of lens, you have the Sonys. I’m glad Tamron is trying new things! I have owned multiple 70-200 f2.8 lenses and I won’t be buying another of those. Too large and heavy to lug around much. This lens is far more interesting for me.

Mirfak: Does it use a Sony sensor? :)

I wonder how much dynamic range...

In reply to:

dpfan32: Please show how much the 70-200 extends. This is no way internal zooming lens or isn't it??

Based on what they wrote and the zoom lock switch, it is not internally zooming

PPierre: Great rendering ! I'm a Sony shooter, and would gladly have it, though I won't complain since we have the 135 GM also.

I think that Canon is making a nice move. These lenses are a reason to choose their system.

I read everywhere that unfortunately, the cameras are only so so. Well, yep, they are not on par with Sony in DR or eye-AF or IBIS (well, that's a bummer to me), but they are more than decent. Eye-AF is not as good as Sony's ? Well, if it focuses right 95% of the time in difficult situations vs 99% for Sony, I don't find it disappointing. As for DR, I'm not sure it makes that much sense in 99% of the cases. I could do with one of these for one or two years: even though they're not the best at everything, they're better than anything I've had so far, and they're best at one thing if you want f1.2 lenses : you can mount this marvellous 85f1.2 on it. So kudos Canon !

@scokill. Did you read the post?

In reply to:

diness: Can’t wait for this telephoto lens! My guess is 75-180mm f2.8 or something like that. Definitely telescoping design to keep size down. Bump on the bottom left may be for VC switch?

Well the only thing is the entrance pupil size that it needs to have to be 200mm and f2.8. I’m not sure what that is. This one looks like it might be a 72mm filter thread? Maybe that’s big enough. I don’t know

Doubt it’s an apsc lens. Because of its placement it looks like the completion of the full frame f2.8 trinity. F4 would be a bit of a surprise too

Interesting. How do you like the lens? Oh wait, you probably have never used it...

In reply to:

GrapeJam: IMO Tamron lenses have always had pleasing color rendering, wish they'd make more than just consumer zooms for the E mount.

I wouldn’t call the Tamron zooms consumer necessarily. F2.8 zooms that are nearly $1000 aren’t quite consumer. That said, I think Tamron is taking the exact right approach to the E mount and I think sales numbers would agree. If people want expensive professional glass, they can buy the g masters. But if you want reasonably priced, f2.8 glass that’s light and small and also very very sharp, the Tamrons are fantastic. I can’t wait till they come out with a telephoto!

In reply to:

XeroJay: Here, I just did a quick test of how the EFCS system affects bokeh of the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art. I found an organic subject, then used minimum focus distance, 1/8000 sec, f1.4:
https://youtu.be/SjDllwZik0w
If you can't see how EFCS affects bokeh after this, then I would suggest you save your money and not bothering with f/1.2 or f/1.4 primes.

Wow, it is indeed quite a difference. I had no idea!
