Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS Review (image quality simply amazing, Photography Blog)

RF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS Review

Photography Blog posted their Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS review, and they seem to be pretty fond of this lens.

They gave the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS 5/5 stars and an “Essential” rating. Have a look at the review conclusion:

[the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS] offers fantastic sharpness and image quality throughout the zoom range, great build quality, and an outstanding feature-set and performance.

Image quality is simply amazing. It’s outstanding at almost every focal length, with epic levels of sharpness virtually throughout the aperture range.

Chromatic aberrations are almost non-existent and flare is only ever an issue when shooting directly into the sun or if you choose not to use the large lens hood.

The only optical issue of note is a slight drop-off in sharpness when shooting wide-open at f/2.8 at the 200mm focal length – otherwise this lens is a stellar performer.

Auto-focusing proved to be very quick, accurate and reliable on the Canon EOS RP mirrorless camera that we tested the lens with, while manual focus over-ride is a great feature, as is the effective built-in optical image stabilisation system that’s worth up to 5 stops.

Guess the only drawback of this stellar performer is the price, $2,699.

Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS Review (highly recommended, Optical Limits)

RF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS Review

The experts at Optical Limits (former photozone.de) their Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS review.

The Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS, for the EOS R system, is a highly regarded lens, and it sells at rather hefty $2,699. Never the less, the lens is remarkable, and Optical Limits gives the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS a “highly recommended”, and 4.5/5 points for the optical quality and 4.5/5 for the mechanical quality.

Upon the first contact, you can’t be anything but impressed by the size of the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8 USM L IS especially at a time when lens dimensions tend to super-size rather than shrink.

[…] The results are tack sharp throughout the zoom range and at all relevant aperture settings. Lateral CAs are very low. The same goes for image distortions. Vignetting is a bit of a weak spot though unless you prefer to keep image auto-correction activated. The light falloff in the upper range is too heavy for such a lens. The quality of the bokeh is generally very good – the smooth out-of-focus highlights are especially impressive here. The bokeh fringing is present but quite well controlled. A bit of an ugly aspect are focus shifts (RSAs) when stopping down. This is nothing to worry about when using autofocusing – so most users will never notice it – but the issue can hit you in manual focus mode.
