Katelyn James posted a video where she shares her experiences with the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L lens:

A few months ago I made a review of the Canon RF 28-70 f/2.0 after using it for only one wedding day. Well 6 months later my opinion about this lens has changed… I LOVE IT more than I ever thought I would. It gives you all the advantages of shooting with prime lenses AND zoom lenses with almost zero compromise. I use it for 80%-90% of my images on the wedding day and want to share my experiences with this lens after using it non-stop for 6 months!
