That's rad! Haha, it's kind of fun when your own experience with a lens is strangely better than other people's.

Yeah, when I finally invest in the R ecosystem, I would love to shoot with higher end glass. I'm especially drooling over the prospect of getting a killer RF 85mm 1.2L, like either of those mentioned here, and an RF 24mm 1.4L (dare they make one?) or an RF 35mm 1.4L. Then again, if the Holy Trinity glass is sharp enough, I may need to join the zoom shooters . . .
I've been on the other end of the spectrum as well. My 100-400 Mk2 L was the softest copy anyone had seen.

They have an RF 24mm f/1.2L in the works according to the rumor. So no f/1.4 ;)

You are right, there will be no RF bodies, RF is reserved for lenses.
But surely there are, and will be, RF-mount bodies ... As I understand it, the R (as in the EOS R) is just the name of a particular camera model which has kicked off a new branch of the EOS system, with that branch (both bodies and lenses) using the RF-mount.

Yes, they were definitely joking in saying that there would be no RF bodies ;)

Not true. Cavalier criticism and Sony fanboyism is the problem. Unwarranted hissy fits are the problem. Irrational/cynical
comments that appear to forget about what is on the horizon and acting like what is here today is all there will be. That's the problem. That, and apparently forgetting there is also an R, not just an RP. That a pro body will be here by year's end.
Two more giant, heavy, ultra expensive lenses to put on the cheapest, lightest FF camera on the market. Yippy
BTW: Some of us will mount those ultra expensive and heavy lenses to an RP.

hmm would be nice if canon prints little lens test pattern inside lens cap ,everyone would have then equal tool to test their lens copy quality . everyone takes pic from it from 2meter away and compares 100% crops.

I don't remember reading any convincing rumors about a pro body by year's end. Are you referring to the high MP body? In that case, I think we were all in the dark about what features it would have besides a high MP sensor, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

That sounds... heavier and more expensive than really necessary
Come on, live a little! ;)

Sorry, I didn't mean to hurt you...;), but I can't stand this continuous whining about whatever Canon produces any longer.
This is not a Canon - bashing forum, CONSTRUCTIVE criticism is certainly welcome, yet!

And why are you saying this? As it is factually incorrect, my criticism of Canon is not only tolerated but even shared here.

Looks like you have some personal issues, do you?

Not true. I read here regularly complaints about cropped 4K video and "I quit and go for Sony" alike comments, which aren't censored by the nice admins running this site - kudos and a big thank you to them btw. But it is a relatively trolling free zone, what you may miss. If you need that, I recommend to visit DPR, but never ever do criticize Sony products there! Or do it, if you love to stir a real shit storm :devilish:

Hope Canon would develop a "RF 105mm f/1,2L DS" and maybe "135mm f/1,2L DS"
Like the Nikkor AF-DC 105mm and 135mm
Good idea, in particular the 135mm would be a great light and compact successor to the famous EF 135 mm f/2. The EF 400mm f/4 DO II proves that Canon has a really mature diffraction optics lens technology now.
