I use the stacked coupons to order a refurbished 24-240 lens last week. It came yesterday. I have seldom purchased consumer lenses but the RF ones have been getting such good reviews that I bought a 35mm f/1.8 and really liked it. So, now I'm also impressed by what you get for your money with the 24-240. Its a refurbished lens, but there is not a mark on it, it looks like new and works great.

I was able to take it out this morning and shoot 20 or 30 images of my dying garden, the IS worked very well and images had lots of detail and nice color. At 240mm it seemed to be a tiny amount less sharp. At 24mm, I did not have a problem with the distortion due to the nature of the photos. I did not turn on the correction in Lightroom.

Here are some random samples. They are usually cropped and have the color saturation cranked up because I like it that way for vegetation.

I had only one image that was not focused perfectly. It was my fault, focus was fine, just not on the subject. That is unusual for me, I'd expect 3 or 4 normally.

Thanks for those. I am thinking about rationalising my lens collection, and the RF 24-240mm is one I have been considering. I have to say I am not happy with Lightroom for the R5 as it isn't in my hands dealing well with noise.

These were in bright sun so noise was not a issue but indoors, the ISO shot up to 40,000. Needless to say, the R does not do well at that value. Still, it would do well for UFO's. ;)
