They have an RF 24mm f/1.2L in the works according to the rumor. So no f/1.4That's rad! Haha, it's kind of fun when your own experience with a lens is strangely better than other people's.
Yeah, when I finally invest in the R ecosystem, I would love to shoot with higher end glass. I'm especially drooling over the prospect of getting a killer RF 85mm 1.2L, like either of those mentioned here, and an RF 24mm 1.4L (dare they make one?) or an RF 35mm 1.4L. Then again, if the Holy Trinity glass is sharp enough, I may need to join the zoom shooters . . .
But surely there are, and will be, RF-mount bodies ... As I understand it, the R (as in the EOS R) is just the name of a particular camera model which has kicked off a new branch of the EOS system, with that branch (both bodies and lenses) using the RF-mount.You are right, there will be no RF bodies, RF is reserved for lenses.
Yes, they were definitely joking in saying that there would be no RF bodiesBut surely there are, and will be, RF-mount bodies ... As I understand it, the R (as in the EOS R) is just the name of a particular camera model which has kicked off a new branch of the EOS system, with that branch (both bodies and lenses) using the RF-mount.
Not true. Cavalier criticism and Sony fanboyism is the problem. Unwarranted hissy fits are the problem. Irrational/cynical
BTW: Some of us will mount those ultra expensive and heavy lenses to an RP.Two more giant, heavy, ultra expensive lenses to put on the cheapest, lightest FF camera on the market. Yippy
I don't remember reading any convincing rumors about a pro body by year's end. Are you referring to the high MP body? In that case, I think we were all in the dark about what features it would have besides a high MP sensor, but please correct me if I'm wrong.That, and apparently forgetting there is also an R, not just an RP. That a pro body will be here by year's end.
Come on, live a little!That sounds... heavier and more expensive than really necessary
Sorry, I didn't mean to hurt you..., but I can't stand this continuous whining about whatever Canon produces any longer.
Or it would be nice if people just took and shared photos.hmm would be nice if canon prints little lens test pattern inside lens cap ,everyone would have then equal tool to test their lens copy quality . everyone takes pic from it from 2meter away and compares 100% crops.
Not true. I read here regularly complaints about cropped 4K video and "I quit and go for Sony" alike comments, which aren't censored by the nice admins running this site - kudos and a big thank you to them btw. But it is a relatively trolling free zone, what you may miss. If you need that, I recommend to visit DPR, but never ever do criticize Sony products there! Or do it, if you love to stir a real shit storm
Good idea, in particular the 135mm would be a great light and compact successor to the famous EF 135 mm f/2. The EF 400mm f/4 DO II proves that Canon has a really mature diffraction optics lens technology now.Hope Canon would develop a "RF 105mm f/1,2L DS" and maybe "135mm f/1,2L DS"
Like the Nikkor AF-DC 105mm and 135mm
I think Canon wants first to show off and make clear that they are very serious with their R system. As others here I am pretty confident that we'll see soon more lighter, smaller lenses (zooms) that aren't that fast for the RF mount. The RP is already a hint that Canon makes a move into a more consumer oriented market segment.Probably for the same reason I would.
While impressive there's very few lightweight RF lenses. In fact so far there's the 35mm 1.8 and just a 24-240 on the horizon.
Granted, the RF24-105 is cheap and suitable for a lot.
