Mirrorless can be lighter or not, but it doesn’t have to be. I’m shoot an 80D partly because of its compromise in size, as well as features. I’m looking forward to having a full frame body that I can put a lightweight lens on if I want or a heavy lens if I need. I’m still on the sidelines because the R and RP don’t quite offer enough incentive to upgrade.Can anyone tell me why canon is creating heavy, bulky lenses on a smaller mirrorless body? The mirrorless rf system is heavier than a dslr ef-s system. Wasn't mirrorless supposed to be the lighter system?
With regards to the new lens, I expect this to be a UWA lens. They will chop one side of the range, probably the wide end like they did with the 28-70. I’d guess they can get a 16-35 f/2 to fit with the same 95mm filters. Maybe it will be 17, but that would make most of us happy. There aren’t many current full frame options below 20mm faster than f/2.8.
