Reader Comment: Canon EOS R + Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L

See my Canon mirrorless wishlist.

Josh T writes:

This is in response to my previous inquiry regarding buying one mirrorless camera for both landscapes and portraits, with a priority on portraits. You advised the Canon EOS R to make use of the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM. I balked at first. It’s a big, heavy lens. Also, I had preferred to stick with Nikon, which I’ve used exclusively in the past. I hemmed and hawed, read your full review on the RF 50mm f/1.20L, and decided to buy both the lens and the EOS-R “as an accessory necessary for using the lens,” as you put it.

This has proven to be great advice, and I’m very happy with this setup. I'm getting a relatively high hit rate of in-focus eyes. Switching from Nikon was a big transition for me. I don’t have any regrets. The 50mm f/1.2 is a huge and heavy lens, but I don't mind hauling it around with me, and I suspect I would have been disappointed sticking with Nikon, at least for the next two years or so.

Next, I'm going to swap the EOS-R for the lighter and cheaper RP--will help take some of the sting out of the cost and weight of the 50mm f/1.2.

Thanks for the solid advice.

DIGLLOYD: try the Canon EOS RP if a few ounces really matters, but I'd keep the Canon EOS R around long enough to be sure you're happy with the RP, that is, don't sell the EOS R first. The EOS RP might not balance well with the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L, plus its EVF and video and other things are down-spec'detc.
