That's pretty dark but looks very compact and the 0.5 macro is great. And if the R6 will have the same 20MP sensor as the 1DX then won't be a problem to raise the ISO with half a stop.

Far too low to replace a 1:1 like the 100L . However it would be there where you had the itch just like when carrying the 24-70 f/4L.
I initially thought that - but the 24-70 f/4L gives 0.7x, which is usable macro. 0.4x at 105mm is nice-to-have, but not the same thing.

It's exactly to the DLA limit of the 45Mpixel R5 but I assume no R5 user will use this (and the lens wouldn't be up to it probably). But It will certainly do fine with R6 though...

Gee, we were all 'new entrants' to FF at some stage, so you're effectively calling everyone 'ignorant'. Very helpful. Kit lenses, if of decent quality, can be a great buy.
95% of peoples never read forums, barelly open the manual, have no clue what f7.1 means, and don't really care. They just buy one camera or another and shoot auto.
If you feel offended, are you in those 95% ?

I'd have to care rather more about what you said to be offended. I do care about keeping the level of discussion on these threads at a respectful level, and that doesn't (in my opinion) include describing 95% of the photography gear market as ignorant.

Wow people don't seem to have a grip on reality tonight. f/7.1, that's only good for a paper weight, a rebel user, ignorant new entrants customers, batting practice...... seriously folks, need to go home if the clouds come out!? Talk to the people that have spent 3k to mount a 100-400 on a 1.4x and shoot at f/8, or a 2x at f/11. Lots of people shooting sports and wildlife with those combinations and quite happy with the results when a 10k option isn't an option - but they (me) must be ignorant for being happy with these results.

If the price is right, the lens small, and image quality decent, this lens will make a lot of people happy.

OMG you read my mind about reading this and thinking about shooting at f/8 with that same combo (this morning) and not once thinking about wanting 'more' just working with what I had.
