Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L DxOMarked (impressive optical performance)

RF 28-70mm F/2L at a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2 to f/22
  • Ultra-Low Dispersion Elements
  • Ring-Type Ultrasonic Motor AF System
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

DxOMark posted their review and test results for the Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L, a highly regarded lens for the EOS R system.

DxOMark gave the RF 28-70mm F/2L a score of 33, and see it performing better than the amazing Canon EF 24-70mm F2.8L II.

From the conclusion:

With such a fast F2.0 maximum aperture at all focal lengths, the new Canon RF zoom certainly feels like it’s showcasing the potential of switching to the new RF mount. Given the possibilities for low-light shooting, when switching between primes isn’t ideal, a lens like this is sorely tempting. At a dollar shy of $3,000, though, it is a pricey proposition. Still, it has very impressive optical performance, and when viewed overall, it’s even a slightly better performer than the highly-regarded Canon EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM. Its appeal is somewhat niche, but if you need a lens like this, there isn’t anything else on the market quite like it.

Canon RF 35mm f1.8 IS STM Macro Lens Review (highly versatile lens, DPReview)

Canon RF 35mm F1.8 IS STM

Canon RF 35mm f1.8 IS STM at a glance;

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.8 to f/22
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • STM Stepping AF Motor
  • 1:2 Max. Magnification, 6.7″ Min. Focus
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

DPReview posted their full review of the Canon RF 35mm f1.8 IS STM Macro lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. They gave it a score of 86%.

From their conclusion:

This will no doubt be an obvious walk-around lens for many EOS R-series users, at least for the time being while the RF lens range is still growing. With a classically popular focal length, a respectably wide maximum aperture, image stabilization and close-focusing capabilities, it clearly has broad ambitions and many useful applications.

[…]

The [Canon RF 35mm f1.8 IS STM Macro] has been put together well and handles nicely, and you soon start to appreciate the presence of the Control Ring as you use it to make small tweaks while shooting. The focusing system isn’t the most discreet but it is fast, and it works very well during video shooting

The [Canon RF 35mm f1.8 IS STM Macro] is certainly capable of delivering nicely sharp images too, and while vignetting, curvilinear distortion and lateral chromatic aberration are all visible to some extent, the worst of these can be banished quite easily through the camera-based corrections. LoCA is present at wider apertures and can be visible in out-of-focus areas, but it’s most prominent in out-of-focus high contrast regions, where you may see purple and green fringing. That, and the ‘catseye’ bokeh that can result when shooting at wider apertures might be a concern for those who intend to use the lens frequently in this way. Heavily defocused areas and more natural backgrounds, however, are generally rendered very pleasingly.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV with “L” lens vs. Canon Rebel T5 with Kit Lens – Can You Spot The Difference?

Canon Eos 5d Mark Iv

The School of Photography posted a 40min video where they compare the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV with the EF 24-105mm f/4L lens with the Canon Rebel T5 and the 18-55mm kit lens.

When it comes to the final result, is it really worth the extra money you have to spend for Canon high end gear? The video below is an in-depth head to head test to see what difference it actually makes. An urban portrait shoot is done for testing purposes, and will be putting these cameras through their paces in low and bright light situations.
