Which EF lenses will you absolutely keep for the EOS R and its successors?


Mar 28, 2012
I think in cases where the EF adapts especially well, almost seamlessly, it's worth the savings and being able to get something sooner. To me, end results count, and if ergonomics are good, it makes the decision easy.

I'm probably going to end up getting rid of my ef 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II sooner rather than later. I just can't use it on the R comfortably in vertical position/portrait orientation. The available grip won't help either as my thumb would be too far from the upper right corner of the display screen for touch-and-drag.

Only thing holding me back from selling it is, well, ok two things...First, it's a superb copy (and paid for!). But also, I wonder if better ergonomics on the next body might "correct" some of the front-heavy issue I'm having.

I'd say hold onto it and see what the new bodies look like.

I'm hoping the 5D4 equivalent RF camera will be in a boty that is more full sized like its DSLR counterpart which means you'd still have the grip quality there for larger lenses.
