man, i think I'd rather stick w/ a 24-70 f2.8L instead. Wish there was an 85mm 1.2 or 1.4 and a 35mm 1.4L tho.

So the 35mm isn’t a true 1:1 macro right? 17cm MFD seems long

The 35mm IS has MFD of 24cm
Good question. Perhaps 1:2?

But the crop 28 and 35 illuminated macros are at least 1:1. Maybe they’ve pulled it off for FF as well?

28-70 is 3.15 pounds?
The weight saving idea went out the window.
The lens might need to be that big to be f/2, but it kind of misses the mark for the first go round of releases.
A compact f/2.8 might have been more appropriate.
Don't worry they will announce 24-70 2.8 RF

This lens is about making a statement. First to make a 28-70 F2 and we have so many capable lens makers nowaday.

Wedding photographers would love this lens especially if it's $2000-2500.

No doubt it will have a following and is most likely a very nice piece of glass.

I would have thought the majority of shooters that would jump on the mirrorless would be those welcoming the lighter weight.

In the end there is only one statement that really does count for Canon. They release it annually.

The 24-105 was first L lens on my first FF camera (the 5D MKII), and I really ended up using and liking that zoom range a lot. Looking back at old photos, I'm still amazed at how great it is (my copy at least), except for very wide shots. And I'm going to do this combo again with the R and the RF 24-105, be up and running, and see how things go.

Right, so the RF 35/1.8 IS a touch lighter than the EF 35/2 IS, and RF 24-105/4L IS is a bit lighter than the EF 24-105/4L IS II (although a fraction heavier than the EF 24-105/4L IS) ... and the RF 28-70/2L and RF 50 1.2L are fairly heavy lenses. Unsurprising for their specs given they are all FF lenses (and what we've seen other brands), but again it has me questioning whether FF mirrorless really has much of a weight or size advantage over DSLR ... and assuming it doesn't, what the big deal is about FF mirrorless.

I understand mirrorless may offer some other benefits over DSLR, but DSLR offers some benefits of FF mirrorless too (depending on what features you value, eg I am yet to see an EVF I like as much as an OVF although I realise others prefer EVF).

I will be interested to hear more about the EOS R and the RF lenses as information becomes available, but at this point personally I'm not feeling a likely buyer for the EOS R (at least any time soon).
Very very true. Add to the DSLR benefits that their sensors gather much less dust due to mirror presence.

Keep in mind that since there is no size advantage between the R 24-105 and your 24-105 version 1 the only advantage is due to smaller camera only.

Comparing the weight of the 5D4 with a 24-70mm II against the EOS R with the new 28-70mm...

View attachment 180063
Maybe Canon's idea is that, since the body is lighter but has similar sized grip, you can get away with a heavier lens as the net total is only 400g heavier, rather than 800g heavier.

Still, as a photojournalist I say bring on the EF mount version. I was considering getting the 35mm f/1.4L II next, as night breaking news can be too dark for the 24-70, but here's a lens that would let me keep my most-used parts of the range and still be a stop brighter. Needless to say, 28mm is still wider than being stuck with a 35.. Plus photojournalists and sports photogs carry supertelephotos around all day, this will ultimately be a light lens in comparison.

But now this all just messes up my lens plans. Can't decide if my next camera will be a R series or the next installment of the 1D series, in which case my EF lenses will get another ~6 years of use out of them, unless they go all A9 on us.

Sorry if this has been covered before... the 50mm seems to have a switch on the bottom that seems to indicate an IS lens, no?

It could be a switch. It could be an artifact.

If it’s a switch, it could be Lens IS on/off. I could be body IS on/off. It could affect how the rings work. It could a lot of things :)
