Sadly my APS-c jorney went with Sony for 7 years. I never made full swich into sony. Sony RAW and colors were not worth it. Now the Sony APS-C jorney is ending. Finally.
If the optical formula of the M version is fine, why change it?
I would love to have the 32mm f/1.4 available for the R7 I preordered! And the 22mm, 11-22 and 28mm macro!If the optical formula of the M version is fine, why change it?
Producing a completely new set of lenses unnecessarily, just because the mount changes, makes no sense. The design and manufacturing costs would need to be recouped and passed on the the customer. I suspect that most people would prefer to stick with the existing designs and keep the purchase price lower.
Of course, if new designs offered a significant improvement (e.g. closer MFD, wider max aperture, faster AF, nicer bokeh, additional focal lengths) then they would be very desirable, but obviously a lot more expensive than re-using existing designs, which was the point of my response to Madbox. Just look at the price of RF exotica, compared to nearest-equivalent EF glass!I would love to have the 32mm f/1.4 available for the R7 I preordered! And the 22mm, 11-22 and 28mm macro!
Sigma has 16 / f1.4 in E mount , which I sold… it is Very fine video lens and it was very sad to sell away.I would love to have the 32mm f/1.4 available for the R7 I preordered! And the 22mm, 11-22 and 28mm macro!
Don't hold your breath. Years of EF-S lenses, none with the L designation. The EF-S 17-55/2.8 and 10-22/3.5-4.5 delivered optical quality equivalent to some L lenses...the former aged and was never updated, the latter was replaced with the inferior 10-18/4-5.6.I wish Canon would come up with L grade RF-s lens , just as Sony has , and Fuji too. Low focus breathing - hopefully. Looks like these lens are a lot cheaper than FF lens.
Who’s been duped? Has Canon misled anybody about what they would develop? Where are the official statements about specific lenses coming? Or did you dupe yourself by expecting a bunch of f/1.2 APS-C L primes?
