Rodrigo Penha Coutinho: Hi,

i used to have a Canon system and owned the excelent 70-200 f4L.
Why does this lens still sells for $599 and this new RF mount equivalent for $1599 ?
Are we to believe that the quality of the RF lenses are soooo much better now ?

Regards

@howHearThis - I have used the 70-200 f4 IS I own on a eos R and IS was working fine, on a 30mpx sensor was pretty sharp though. And I've been suprised, it makes me feel to give another go to my old lenses.

I own the first 70-200 f4 IS, I have been impressed after I tried this lens on a eos R w adapter for EF.
After 11 years this lens still delivering excellent performances, AF, sharpness and contrast. It pushes me to come back to canon, from sony.
Like you I'm thinking if the new RF version really worth the price, considering how cheap is the older version.

henrikbengtsson: Just out of curiosity, and I hope I am wrong: they already have colorgarding for highlights and shadows.

Did they just add the same code for the midtones (some tweaks for blending), created 3 wheels for selection and called it a day?

was my first tought

Great, they added something normal.
Waiting for saturation control on highlight and shadows.

n3eg: How about a 500mm f/8 mirror lens mug for my soup?

I would use that mug for alcohol blend

I would rather spend a little bit more for the samyang 18mm f2.8, not for a faux cap

santamonica812: This particular product is not something that would interest me at all. But I am in favor of anything that gets people back to shooting more film. So, I hope this works as advertised and I hope it's a success.

Santamonica you are absolutely right, I'm not very young anymore and I do photography since ever, because my father is a pro photographer retired.
I've done many photos in b&w darkroom, I'have printed amateur 135 rolls with japanese labs (noritsu) for years, every day, I used to shoot with 120 rolls.
But, I'm not very nostalgic because it is a waste of time. Nowadays it's incredible how I can get a very good photo (almost film looking) with the contemporary technologies, of course I've paid my dues a long time ago, so nothing to do with film, nostalgic things and how to be a better photographer (again, for me).
If you are concerned about nouvelle photographers, so yes, the film photography could be a very good, strong, worthy school.

CarpentersEye. English language and photography are two different things, might be not the same for condescending people.

Why people should shoot more film?

Strolic Furlan: Playing with the raws I much prefer the colour raw output of this Panasonic than that of any Sony milc full frame I had, very nice job indeed, obviously this is my personal taste, so others might think different.

I use sony's portrait profile. You should stick on this profile for a while. Forget that sony yellow cast.

wootpile: It's a pity that Nikon, Canon and Sony did not join the L-mount initiative. I believe we will see a universal mounts (same as we finally saw standard film cartridge sizes) but it will take a horrendous long time. Too bad because once the prices come down on L bodies and lenses, the other 3 will have a hard time competing.

Do you believe in unicorns?
