Canon 5DSR II
- Aug 16, 2012
The lens would still be possible with an OVF but we would just have to put up with framing a distorted image, which is not beyond the capabilities of most of us, I would have thought.I took your original statement a different way. The 24-240 has such pronounced barrel distortion that it would likely be obvious in an OVF. So they couldn't make that lens for an OVF camera (even if flange distance weren't an issue). They had to issue a firmware update for the R and RP before they released that lens, so that the camera could correct it...and people looking through the EVF would, as a matter of course, see the adjusted image. Thus, the EVF itself made that lens possible.
