And yeah I use the Tamron 45 on my EOS RP. It produces quite pleasing images. Though the Fujifilm X 35mm 1.4 R (50mm 1.8 equivalent) is still noticeably sharper, which is shocking since it's a double-gauss design... just a very well designed double gauss.

Just FYI: There's no reason to cry doom yet. When we did see a patent for an RF 50 mm 1.8 last year, it was a Double Gauss derivative and absolutely tiny at just 3.8 cm:


I bet there's a ton of glass in various stages of design and manufacturing currently. When Canon eventually introduces a FF body below the RP price point, corresponding lenses will follow. We've seen enough patents (and with the 24-105mm 4.0-7.1 and f/11 primes, also products) to see that Canon does not shy away from compromises in aperture or optical quality to push down the price, size and weight of FF imaging.
