Tony & Chelsea Northrup posted a 9 minutes review of the Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens for the EOS R full frame camera system.

A interchangeable camera system’s appeal depends largely by the its lens ecosystem. Something Fujifilm understood early and did right, and Canon didn’t apparently are too much with their APS-C mirrorless system, the EOS M.

Canon seems to have reminded how important the lens ecosystem is for a new camera system when they introduced the EOS R. While the RF 28-70 mm F/2L and especially the RF 50mm F/1.2L are the lenses that showcase the capabilities of the new RF mount,  the RF 24-105mm f/4L IS is the kit lens for the EOS R. A pretty good kit lens it appears.

We’ve now taken over 1,600 photos with the Canon EOS R and the 24-105 f/4 lens… and it’s a pretty fantastic combination for general, do-it-all consumer photography. The RF 24-105 f4 L IS is sharper than other kit lenses we’ve tested, including the Sigma 24-105 f4 and the Canon EF 24-105 f4 L IS. It’s almost as sharp as the Canon 24-70 f/2.8, but not quite (and of course, it’s a stop slower). While it’s not a professional-grade lens, it’s well-built, fairly compact, and extremely versatile.

Well, engineering lenses is something Canon does very good.
