  • I was thinking the same thing.  Being able to use IS while panning isn't the same as having the lens actually detect panning and switching modes.
  • This I have not heard before.  Do you have a source for this information?  I picked up the RF 100-400 during the recent sale, but I haven't had a chance to use it.  The panning mode on other ...
  • I've been on the fence about this lens, but this is too good a deal to pass up IMO.  I haven't shot with it yet, but I really like the build quality and small, light package.
  • I'd say the RF-S 18-150 is roughly equivalent to my EF-S 18-135.  Based on my small sample size, the EF lens seems to have slightly better IS, while the RF might be a touch sharper.  Overall, I ...
  • :-) My brother-in-law has the EF 70-200 F4L and the older 100-400L Mk1. Both seemed to play nice with his R7. I have the Sigma 100-400 and it worked great too with the adapter. I'd love to have ...
  • I went for the kit because I didn't have any other RF lenses (still the only one I have), so I figured it had to be worth $400.  I don't know that I would call it "junk", but I don't think it's as ...
  • I have the 18-150 - it's definitely not "awful", but I don't think it's excellent either.  Stills seem fine, but, for a sports-oriented camera (R7), I would have expected a lens with better IS ...
  • I used the 18-150 at a sports car race a couple weekends ago, and was dissappointed in the performance.  My keeper rate is generally low when panning at slow shutter speeds, but it was ...
  • My Sigma has been pretty decent overall. Frankly, the 18-150 kit lens was a disappointment - quite soft in my opinion, and I had a terrible keeper rate.  That's why I'm concerned about panning with ...
  • I use slow shutter speeds (1/60 - 1/125) and pan to (hopefully) get nice motion blur.  Image stabilization makes a huge difference.  I use mode 2 on my Sigma which works pretty well, but the ...
  • I have nothing useful to add, other than to say you should immediately kill those Japanese beetles!  They will eventually destroy your garden. Oh, and nice shots!  I've been considering the RF ...
