If I read this right, the RF 50 would be 19mm shorter than the RF 35 which is already a short lens. This would be a little over double the size (by 4mm) of the EF 40 2.8 pancake? I hope I am reading the lens length right in MM. Looks like it would slot in between a EF 50 STM and RF 35.

I think that 85 might be in time to make my birthday/Christmas list.

For a rank amateur, I’d have pretty much all I’ll ever need. RF 24 - 240, RF 35 1.8 and RF 85 1.8. After that I have to focus on putting 5 kids through college.

f/1.8 ain't no slouch. You'll have a fantastic setup. (y)

I've always dreamed of a zoom trinity that doesn't overlap: 14-28, 28-70, 70-135... WOW!
