See my Canon mirrorless wishlist.
This series evaluates performance of the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L at 70mm on a close-range scene using the 30-megapixel Canon EOS R. Overall imaging performance is evaluated, including sharpness, bokeh and secondary color.
If you’re a Canon mirrorless shooter, the about $2999 Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L is a must-have, being the finest zoom I have ever tested—exquisite really. I might yet find some weaknesses, but “OMG” is my first impression, similar to when the first Zeiss Otus lens appeared—a revelation in what a zoom could be, and now is.
Along with the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L, Canon is delivering lenses so good that the Nikon Z7 lens choices don’t even deserve to be in the discussion—Canon is producing lenses I *want* to own and shoot. Not so with Nikon (Sony has a good mix). The Canon EOS R is only 30 megapixels—but Canon will surely deliver a high megapixel camera at some point. Otherwise, I could see the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L being the only lens I would need to carry for many purposes. And that is a BFD for anyone looking to simplify and focus on shooting.
