  • Why are you comparing the 35mm f1.8 lens with lenses it shares very little in common with?  It's not the same focal length as either of those lenses.  It has IS, which neither of those have.  It ...
  • Yes, of course it's all true, especially this line.  My point is that most people looking at cheap f1.8 primes can't afford the 28-70.  That is certainly me.  They share a similar maximum aperture ...
  • While not nearly as demanding as you seem to be, I am also very interested in an RF 85mm f1.8!  I am hoping it will have IS and focusing will be internal (I hope the 35mm has external focus simply ...
  • The 28-70 is a fantastic lens, and quite the achievement.  But, people who are looking for the lenses described in this post are not looking at it.  They are looking for inexpensive, light, and ...
  • you consider the RF 35mm surprisingly large??? Are those lenses that much smaller than the RF 35? i think the RF is pretty great for the price and if they came out with an 85 that had is and was ...
  • Replied in But how?
    Yes, I totally agree with this.  There may be a slight advantage to Nikon and Canon's design, but it's just too much of a win for them to create the same lens and just change the mounts for all ...
  • I’m not sure that I’ll wait.  I’ll probably just get the EF version for now since it’s pretty cheap anyway
  • With all that I’ve heard I think I may actually keep my little RF 35mm and then add the RF24-105 and go with the EF 85mm f1.8 to compliment it.  I would love an RF 85mm f1.8!  I hope one happens ...
  • Sigma has made some really nice mirrorless only lenses that would be wonderful to have on the RF Mount.  The 35mm f1.2, 24-70 f2.8 and 14-24 f2.8 are all super nice lenses
  • Have people had focus issues with the sigmas on mirrorless too?  I thought that solved many of the issues?  I owned a Sigma 35mm f1.4 that was pretty nice on my EOS R
  • Created discussion thread Recommend me a prime!
    I have an Eos R and I currrently have an RF 35mm and an EF 135mm f2.  I’ve decided the 135mm is just too long for my use and id like to have a zoom. I’m thinking of selling both primes, getting ...
  • It's a pretty bad lens. If you don't use it much at all, you may as well keep it, but with bad IQ and no IS at 300mm and f5.6, I don't know that it will help you much. Here it is compared to ...
  • This is a tough one.  I honestly think I would prefer something in between the two of them.  The skin tones feel a little too cool for my taste on the second one, but also a little too warm and ...
  • Replied in In addition
    If you are willing to go outside of Canon, Sony is actually the best for full frame sports right now IMO.  The a7iii is excellent for sports at a pretty reasonable price.  The a9 and a9ii are ...
  • No, you don't "need" to go mirrorless, or full frame for that matter, unless there are things you need out of it.  What do you shoot?  If it's primarily outdoor sports or something like that, the ...
  • @Arnold Weber - I agree! and the G2 lenses were the ones i was talking about. i tried the first versions and they were good, but the G2 lenses were excellent!

  • If you don’t like extending zooms, what do you do for a standard zoom? 24-***?

  • You mean like their 28-75 for Sony FE that was out of stock for months because it sold so well? Or their 35mm f1.4 that was the best 35mm Af lens out there? Or there 24-70 and 70-200 G2 lenses...

  • Haven’t mentioned the sensor size??? We all know this is a full frame camera

  • Wow, you know a lot about this camera...
