Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS Review (a good travel lens)

Canon RF 24-240mm F/4-6.3 IS Review

Here is a Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS review.

Dustin Abbott reviewed the Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS, an affordable and versatile all-in-one zoom lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. This seems to be the perfect travel lens for EOS R/RP owners.

From his conclusion:

The Canon RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM is not going to set any records for performance, but that’s not what it was designed for.  It was designed for people who don’t like to change lenses all the time and want a lens for their new mirrorless camera that can do a little bit of everything.

[…] It is also for travelers who want to be able to shoot everything from landscapes to telephoto shots and not have to mess with lugging a bag full of lenses around all day.

[…] It is one of the few lenses on the RF mount to date that don’t completely break the bank, and it turns the EOS R/RP/future body into a flexible platform for capturing a wide variety of situations in either stills or video. It has a competent IS and AF system and good enough optics to deliver a lot of great pictures. Learn to use it well and you can mitigate its shortcomings. I have to admit that despite having a kit full of great lenses, a lens like the RF24-240mm appeals to me for the simple reality of its flexibility.

Review: Sigma 16mm & 30mm & 56mm f/1.4 DC DN For Canon EOS M

Sigma 16mm

A review for those interested in the Canon EOS M system: Sigma 16mm, 30mm, and 56mm.

Photography Blog posted their review of three Sigma prime lenses, the Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary, Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary, and Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lenses for the EF-M mount.

From their conclusion:

While the 56mm is undoubtedly our pick of the bunch, all three would make great additions to the rather threadbare camera bag of a Canon EOS M shooter.

This is especially true for the wide-angle Sigma 16mm F1.4 DC DN C and the short-telephoto Sigma 85mm F1.4 DC DN C, as there are no direct rivals in the Canon range […]

It’s a tougher sell for the Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN C because of the EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM, but even then the Sigma is pretty compelling simply because of its price […]

So, if you’re a frustrated Canon EOS M user who has outgrown their kit zoom and doesn’t want to adapt a Canon DSLR lens, the introduction of three well-built, high-quality, ultra-fast Sigma lenses in the native EF-M will be music to your ears.
