I saw this comparison to the old one

The optical diagram/section is interesting. they've basically kept the same barrel size but moved the optics forward due to flange distance sacrificing hood effect in the process.

The 10-24 is also ridiculous, that's super wide O.o

The 600/800 F11’s actually are pretty appealing at @900. Better be good light though. But still that’s pretty inexpensive.

I’m waiting to see who drops 150-600’s in the mix.

Right now I’m leaning Nikon as they seem to be weather sealing the lenses I want and Canon isn’t. The Nikon primes seem to be a really good mix of performance and price too. Canon has some kinda interesting options though.

I don’t think the 1200 F8 will be that expensive, nowhere near the price of the EF 1200 F5.6

I had my first bad day with the R5 yesterday. It just struggled to focus with animal eye AF even with a bird in clear blue sky. I switched to zone AF and it couldn't find anything to lock onto then either, I know my 1DX2 would've locked on right away.

Not sure what was going on, hope it's just a one day occurrence will get a chance to go back out Wednesday.

My, what a pleasure I had yesterday shooting for the first time with my friend's R5. I can't wait to recieve the images from him.

He also has 5D Mark IV which he's going to sell and replace it with R6 as a back-up for R5. As a former 5D Mark IV owner, I absolutely loved the 5D, but the R5 makes the 5D Mark IV (and my EOS R also) to look old and outdated. It's impressive how accurate the R5 af is on a moving person whyle shooting at f1.2. The af stayed on the subject eye so easily in backlit situations or with some obstacles in front...

Also, the feel of the camera and the viewfinder experience is way better than expected. I don't like or need the resolution, but given that I shoot a lot for stock agencies these days and I also plan to do video for stock, I may take a closer look at R5 instead of R6, if it will become available for rent. It's selling so well here so the store that usually has a new pro camera for rent in less than a month from the release in order to attract buyers, doesn't have one available for rent.

Not a big difference in real life between these 2 lenses. The RF version looks better and it's a tad sharper in the center of the frame. It's a good inexpensive lens and I think this was the goal with it, to be a price attraction for the ones who want an additional lens to the kit lens.

Just like the EF was for Dslrs.

Canon have the inexpensive 1.8/2 prime lines(and f11) and the costalotta 1.2s...nice choice to have.IFor when(?) the crop RF body comes, the cheaper glass will sell lots.

From what I've seen and read, Canon managed not only to stop the migration to Sony, but to make former Canon shooters to sell their Sony gear and come back to Canon, especially the ones who had Canon lenses used with adapter on Sony cameras.

I can't wait to see what Sony comes up with because they need to step up and this way they will again force Nikon and Canon to release new firmware updates and new goodies in future cameras.
