The suspense is killing me! I'm wondering how many readers here will get this lens instead of an RF 70-200? The RF 70-135mm is a lens I am lusting for, yet we have not seen even a photo yet. While it will take me at least a year to save the money (I want to avoid using a credit card), I am still dying to see this lens and what it will do compared to the wonderful EF 135mm f/2 prime I used to own.

Considering I have the RF85, I would get the RF70-200. Especially since I’ve seen quite a bit of samples from it and the bokeh is so much better than the EF version. And I would like a lens with REALLY nice AF.

I WILL buy it and use it as a complement to the 100-400 IS II, or just on its own, plus a wide-angle zoom.
For landscapes, since I'm totally inept at portrait photography.
70 to 135 being a range I often use.

Just for my own curiosity, why give up 65mm of additional zoom for 1 stop aperture if you’re mostly shooting outdoors? Especially if this doesn’t have IS.

Indoor events or natural light portraits at f/2 I totally get.

With a fast zoom going to 135mm, what will the prime at 135 be like or will it be skipped in favor of the zoom?
