Optical Limits posted their fuzll Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L review, and they underline the many virtues of this not-budget lens, of this outstanding lens. From their conclusion:
The Canon RF 28-70mm f/2 USM L is everything that you can expect from it – it is a monster of a lens with a monster performance. This is especially true for the broader center quality which is as good as on the best prime lenses. The outer image field is also superb in the lower zoom range. The corners soften a bit at 70mm but remain easily on a good level. That’s on a 45-megapixel sensor. On 20 to 30 megapixels, the lens is almost perfect. The native image distortions can be noticeable at 28mm but not an issue beyond. The native vignetting is quite high at f/2 but that’s no different from prime lenses. Auto-correction comes to the rescue in both cases, of course. Lateral CAs are absolutely negligible. The quality of the bokeh is good but there is a little room for improvement here. However, that’s complaining on a very high level really. The rather massive focus-breathing isn’t ideal for videos though.
The build quality is excellent which isn’t surprising given its professional target audience. The materials and assembly quality are top of the class. Weather-sealing is a natural feature at this price point anyway […] Read the review at Optical Limits…
