  1. Is this RF 85mm the new macro lens that was mentioned a little while back? Or is there another dedicated 100mm 2.8 replacement coming as well?

    Either way an 85mm f2 macro lens sounds fantastic for someone who shoots a mix of food/products and portraits!
  2. I suddenly realised the new cameras may not be immediately supported by Adobe. I wonder what happens with the raw files in PS and Lightroom.
    You always have DPP to play with until they are supported by Adobe or Capture One.
    Actually, I find DPP's RAW conversion really good, better than Adobe's and at the same level as Capture One.
  3. I am hoping the R5 comes with the EF adapter as I have a good selection of L glass and not ready to upgrade that yet.
    I'd imagine it would, but even if it doesn't the basic adapter isn't overly expensive.
  4. My purchase plan:

    1 - EOS R5 and 2x RF - EF extender
    2 - After seeing the R6 decide to upgrade the EOS R for one or not
    3 - RF 50mm F1.8
    4 - RF16-35mm F2.8

    And...I will be out of money for about 5 years!! :D :D :D
  5. I suddenly realised the new cameras may not be immediately supported by Adobe.
    Give DPP a try in the meantime--it's really a good RAW processor. More three-dimensionality to my eye.....
  6. RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM is way up there. I often use my EF 70-200@200 (non IS) as a lightweight trip to the zoo lens or on my daily walk as I can get close enough to rabbits and the like with it.
  7. Given the R6 kit lens pairing it’s obvious Canon considers it to be the new low end camera. The 85/2 macro IS lens is interesting to me and will probably be the first lens in the list that I purchase. Bring on the R5!
  8. Corrections: as per Nokishita, the 50mm f/1.8 and 70-200 f/4 have not been registered. The codes are correct but neither lens is in certification yet. Also, again via Nokishita, the R6 will have two kits, one with the f/4-7.1 STM and one with the f/4L USM.
    Given that Nokishita's info has been 100% correct so far, I see no reason to ignore the R6's higher-end bundle or to misrepresent the 50 and 70-200.
  9. Actually, I find DPP's RAW conversion really good, better than Adobe's and at the same level as Capture One.

    Interesting. I tried it 4 years ago when purchased 5DIV to check dual pixel raw, and never run it again :) All my catalogs are in LR, so using DPP would mean just an additional step in processing.
    Will be preordering the R5 unless it's too expensive or doesn't have the expected megapixel count...
  10. I found an 'R6 kit' on Aliexpress. Unfortunately the specs are totally off and don't match rumours. Also It's Yamaha R6 Kit, not Canon. But does the brand matter? The price is so tempting.
