Just saw Digi-came posted photos and specifications of 2 upcoming RF lenses. If that 24mm STM lens comes in under 400-500$ mark(IF would be desirable) it would be desirable for herp and flower photography. Even rumoured .5x mag ratio for 15-30mm if its for wide end would be great replacement for Venus Laowa 15mm Macro. Eagerly waiting for official announcement.

If you have a look at the size and mfd, the distance subject lens will be about 55-60mm. For the RF35 it's about 70mm, for the Laowa 15mm it's 4mm ( but 1:1 not 1:0,5). I am shure it will be only at the long end.
Sorry for you!

24-105mm STM has great Max mag ratio even at wide end(which is quite unique) so I am curious to find out what mag ratio does this lens have at wide end of 15mm. Also given I have mostly used Laowa at .5x mag ratio or smaller, I can really see this lens as a good replacement for UWA zoom plus dedicated UWA prime(macro) in bag.
