  • I tested the sharpness of the RF 24-105mm F4 L, RF 15-35mm F2.8 L and RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 at FL 24mm and aperture f/4.0. My results fully confirm yours: the extreme corners of the RF 24-105mm F4 L ...
  • According to digital-picture.com there is no significant difference in corner sharpness between 50mm and the other focal lengths at f/2 as tested on the EOS R.
  • I agree with you about the use of the RF28-70/2L. For event shooting, especially indoors, corner sharpness is irrelevant. Most modern lenses offer an excellent center sharpness stopping down ...
  • Not according to Tony Northrup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnFXl56NZCM (8:30 min)
  • Hi I had a look at your album. Nice shots and IQ seems outstanding. You also own the RF 35mm f/1.8 macro. Is the IQ of this lens comparable to that of the RF 28-70mm at f=35mm?
  • Hi Kristian, Thank you for posting these images. They look really excellent in terms of sharpness, color and contrast rendition. I am still puzzled about reports concerning weak corner sharpness. ...
  • The reason is that many reviewers state that the RF 28-70mm is like a bag full of primes. People also talk about "prime-like" quality. I just wonder is this is true. If so, why we should use ...
  • Created question thread RF 28-70mm f/2L USM: IQ at f/2?
    I am considering to purchase the RF 28-70mm f/2L USM. I read about every review published on the internet. The main selling point of this lens is the f/2 aperture. Therefore, the IQ at f/2 is an ...
  • I can't. Because as indicated I don't care about IQ differences observed in pixel peeping on a computer screen. I care about differences I see in a 13x19 inch print on the wall. So I am afraid you ...
  • Let us face it: EF lenses are history at least for photography. I too collected quite a number of EF lenses over de past 20 years which are all excellent lenses. But RF lenses are simply better, ...
  • You did an impressive amount of testing. Thank you so much for all your useful work. Differences in IQ can be perceived by pixel peeping on a computer screen, but the question remains how relevant ...
  • I have no comparative images with other types of targets. I agree that this test does not tell the full story. Maybe a subject with a lot of fine details shows a different result. Nevertheless I ...
  • Dustin Abbott says in this review of this lens: “Not particularly sharp at any focal length”. Since I got the impression that my images with this lens were very sharp, I decided to do some pixel ...
  • Here are two images to illustrate my point: WB setting = AWB (Ambient Priority) WB setting = Daylight
  • Hi Phil, I just tested both AWB settings under the same conditions. There is not much of a difference. I also shoot RAW so the WB can easily adjusted in post as you said. So I don't consider this ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon R5: AWB too blue
    I noticed that AWB under cloudy conditions resulted in images which were too blue. When I set the white balance to "Daylight" or "Cloudy" the colors were correct. Under sunny conditions AWB and ...
  • Thank you. I found it in the manual under "Shooting with Speedlites" p.166. With a Speedlite mounted on the hot shoe the <*>-button functions as FEL.
  • Created question thread Canon R5: Flash Exposure Lock (FEL)
    Many EOS digital DSLR's have a FEL (Flash Exposure Lock) button indicated by an asterix (*). Using a Canon Speedlite it locks the flash power needed to properly expose the image based on the ...
  • Yes, you can using the included LN-MBUC-B01 Camera Controle Cable. Don't forget to set the camera to Canon in the gimbal menu. I tested this myself and it worked fine. https://www.youtube.com/watch ...
  • I have purchased the Weebill S. Tested it today with the R5 and RF 24-105mm. First updated the firmware from 1.96 to 1.98.  As you said: a perfect combo. Balancing was easy. Test footage looked ...
