I'd love Sigma to make a longer ART macro, akin to the EF 180. So besides that the only other option is the IRIX 150 which gets mixed reviews. I'm not so sure that Canon HAS to make an RF macro at 100mm. Many other brands keep churning out 90 and 105. Lots of folks are happy at 60ish. We all have our own distances at which we like to shoot close up, just because I've always used 100 doesn't mean I might not like something else more.No. Don't forget that with the new RF mount capabilities, Canon has
started to put the big heavy glass to the back of the lens, resulting in
overall better balance and smaller filter threads.
If it is as good as the Sigma 135 ART but smaller, I might jump ship.
Until then, the 135 ART on any R camera is a stellar performer.
