  • No, I have only used the RF 351.8 and the EF 35mm 1.4L II, I had the mark I 1.4L but that lens is a distant memory. Just to clarify my original post, I am not saying the 351.8 RF is "as good" as ...
  • I don't know what the T stop is on the RF35 but my guess is it's nowhere near the F stop as the vignette is quite dark until f/2.8 I have not measured or even attempted a comparison but my ...
  • The 35 1.4L is actually far better in many measurable ways. My assessment in not being able to see a difference is solely based on my use of 35mm fast primes. Specifically using wide open and ...
  • the large AF point makes a HUGE difference in situations where there are patches of very low or no contrast areas. In reality both the large and small AF rectangles have many DPAF points inside ...
  • DPAF is not contrast detect technically but zero contrast or low contrast areas are impossible for any system to detect focus
  • Hmmmm, while $750 is not really that "expensive" in the grand scheme of things I guess everything is relative. In any case arguing that any particular lens is bad across the board in every ...
  • Created discussion thread BIG FAN of the RF 35mm 1.8
    I've owned the RF 35mm 1.8 for quite a while now. I've used it in a few casual circumstances and tested it against my gold standard 35 1.4L II on stupid stuff but really have not used it much in ...
  • I am sure this will not be helpful at all but merely a datapoint... The EOS R is hands down the best focusing camera I've ever used in the context I use it -- specifically as a portrait/fashion ...
  • I would recommend the R with no reservations for the way you shoot and your subject matter. Before you buy any lenses try your lenses with the R and the adapter as the R will eliminate most of the ...
  • I haven't shot with a 5D or 5Dii in many years. 5Dii was my first Canon digital camera but I do remember how much better the the AF of the 5Diii was than the 5Dii. The 5Div was even better than ...
  • I use mine without a hood which is a non issue, it's actually very difficult to provoke flare with the RF 35 1.8 even with strobes pointed strait into the lens. Maybe due to the small front ...
  • I shoot CRAZY close sometimes and with the right composition beauty details can look really great shooting wide-ish and really close. Obviously not strait-on head shots filling the frame but ...
  • Agree and based on my testing the "DR" thing completely disappears somewhere between ISO 200 and 400. I also think in ALL of the stills except the silly 3/4/5 stop recovery crap (how the HECK does ...
  • I have both and I'll give you a quick assessment... 1. You will not notice a difference in portrait situations wide open. Well you MIGHT if you shoot them side by side under very controlled ...
  • If you mean sensor+digic processor etc RAW files having more room, better high ISO etc. Then I would say yes based entirely on my experience with 6DmII files vs 5D2 files with no direct testing. ...
  • Depends on what you shoot obviously... I've never been enamored with pulling shadows up from the murk myself as I think no matter whether there are artifacts or not shadows pulled up way too much ...
  • All of my testing with color calibration targets shows that they are EXTREMELY similar but as others have observed there does seem to be a hair less red bias in skin tones. I've not done super ...
  • This will certainly eliminate the focus calibration issue if there is one. If this were the V1 24-70 I would understand completely as that lens was actually pretty good but notoriously touchy in ...
  • Replied in RF 35 Profile
    you mean in C1??
  • Replied in RF 35 Profile
    No clue, don't have one but easy enough to look up on their site. I have a love/hate relation ship with C1 but at least it's not the hate/hate I have with Adobe and esp LR ;-) Written quite a while ...
