Budget Portrait Magic: Canon RF 85mm F2 Macro IS STM Review

We’re streaming daily on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Pocket Casts, and Spotify!

At the initial launch, the Canon RF mount had few budget-friendly options, but the Mirrorless lens line-up is quickly catching up. The Canon RF 85mm f2 Macro IS STM is one of those lenses. An ideal focal length for portraiture, Canon also tossed in .5x macro capabilities — the lens isn’t a one genre shooter. Priced at $600, the lens is easily the more accessible option than the $3,000 RF 85mm f1.2 L USM DS.

Our Guide to Canon RF Mount Lenses Just Got a New Lick of Paint

Canon has been busy pumping out new Canon RF Mount lenses, and we’ve been busy reviewing them.

During the last year, Canon has been busy innovating in the camera lens space. The RF mount has come on in leaps and bounds in a short amount of time. It is quickly becoming an excellent, well-rounded platform. We have also been busy putting Canon RF mount lenses to the test in the real world to see if they can stand up to the levels of abuse Canon claims. We’ve just updated our Canon RF mount buyers guide so that you can quickly see just how well each lens performed. For all the details about the update, skip past the break.

Small, Sharp, and Affordable: Canon RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM Review

Kit lenses have a certain stigma attached to them, but the Canon RF 24-105mm f4-7.1 IS STM breaks the kit lens mold.

One of the biggest complaints we hear is that the cost of entry into Canon’s RF mount glass is too high. Canon has a plan to rectify this with more affordable RF lens options for those who don’t want to spring for premium L series glass. The Canon RF 24-105mm f4-7.1 IS STM was launched earlier this year, and it’s intended to be sold as part of Canon’s camera kit bundles. However, you can buy this lens separately from their camera bodies. At just $399, this versatile lens is a full $700 cheaper than the RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM, but is it worthy of your time? Find out in our full review.

A Canon Pancake Lens for RF Cameras Would Rock, But We’d Like More

Camera deals Canon EOS RP

A Canon pancake lens will be an excellent, small and affordable addition to the RF mount lens library.

There are no two ways about it; when it comes to lenses for Mirrorless cameras, Canon has been the most innovative company in recent years. Canon’s current lineup of RF mount glass is excellent, with perhaps the only negatives being the size of the lenses and the hefty price points that go along with them. Lately, we have been seeing and hearing mumbling of some new smaller and hopefully more affordable RF lenses, and one of these new lenses is a possible Canon pancake lens. After the break, we will talk about this and other pancake lenses we would love to see for Canon’s RF mount Mirrorless cameras.

The Canon R5, R6 May Ship in Sept, August, But Will the Prices be Right?

The Canon R5 and the R6 are the most anticipated cameras of 2020, but Canon needs to get this right, or the RF mount may have to head back to the drawing board.

Canon has the photography world’s attention right now. All eyes have been on the BIG C since they first announced the Canon R5 and the Canon R6, and for a good reason. A quick look at the reported specs will make any photography and videographer weak at the knees, but until today, firm shipping timelines have been hard to come by, and there is still no word on pricing. It’s the latter part of that last sentence that has us slightly worried. Canon need’s to be really careful when it comes to pricing their new cameras, or they may find that their RF mount simply won’t gain traction. After the break, we will take a quick look at everything that may be happening in September and August, and we will discuss possible pricing strategies.

A Possible Canon RF 24-150mm F4 Is Making Things Very Interesting

Canon is busy when it comes to RF mount lenses, and this means great things for EOS R cameras and other potential RF Mount platforms.

Until very recently, things had been quiet on the Canon Mirrorless camera front. But, one segment of their business has been making a ton of noise – their RF Mount lens department. Every couple of months, it seems that new patents are filed by Canon for new RF mount lenses, and almost like clockwork, a new RF mount lens patent has emerged. This time it’s for an RF 24-150mm f4 lens. Let’s talk about this after the break.

If It’s Real: The Canon RF 70-135mm F2 Would Be a Dream Lens

Canon could release seven new RF mount lenses in 2020, but the standout of the bunch would be the Canon RF 70-135mm f2.

News surrounding Canon has been coming in thick and fast over the last few weeks. First, we heard about the new Canon EOS R5, which was confirmed as being in development.

If Real, a Canon RF 135mm F1.4 Would be Great, But It Would Be Huge

Another potential RF lens has been talked about, and if it’s real, you will need guns of steel to be able to use the Canon RF 135mm f1.4.

As we all know, Canon has come out with all guns blazing when it comes to their RF mount lenses, and it doesn’t look like they will be running out of ammo anytime soon. According to a new report, a Canon RF 135mm f1.4 lens could be in the works, and while this makes us salivate, our biceps are already starting to weep. Join us after the break for some juicy details about this potential lens.

The Canon EOS R II Really Needs to Feature a New Sensor

Canon EOS R

Canon, all we ask is please don’t reuse the sensor that is found in the EOS R (and the four-year-old 5D4) for the EOS R II.

No matter what way you slice it, 2020 is going to be an incredibly important year for Canon. For a while, Canon has been complaining about declining sales, but they can change all of that in 2020. Canon has been working hard on their RF Mount lenses, and they are incredible, but the cameras they attach to leave much to be desired. Hopefully, in 2020, we will see some new bodies from Canon, and we hope one of them is the EOS R II. But, Canon needs to make sure they get this right. Let’s talk about this after the break.

If a Canon RF 70-400mm Lens Is Real, Then We’re Excited!

The RF mount lens line up could be bolstered with a new RF 70-400mm f4.5-5.6L lens.

Canon has been doing some magical things in the world of lenses for a while. Their EF mount L series glass is still some of the best you can lay your hands on. Fortunately for photographers, they have been continuing their lens wizardry with their new RF mount lenses too, and we have already been blessed with some genuinely great Mirrorless lenses for the EOS R, RP, and Ra. Now, if recent reports are to be believed, we may be blessed with an RF 70-400mm lens later on this year. Let’s talk about this after the break.

Opinion: It’s About Time Canon Gave Up on EF Mount

The Canon EF mount had a great run, and some classic lenses will never be forgotten, but it’s time to move on and RF Mount is the future.

We know Canon arrived super late to the Mirrorless party, and we are pretty aware the Canon EOS R, as fine as it is, is still quite far behind the competition in terms of specs and features. One area where Canon is excelling and showing the rest of the pack how it’s done though is with their RF Mount lenses. RF mount glass is some of the best you can get your hands on, hands down. The RF Mount is the future, and it seems as though this has finally clicked with Canon too. Join us after the break to find out more about big C’s decision to bid adieu to the Canon EF Mount.

Canon Could Be the Most Innovative Lens Company on the Market

Canon has again filed patents for some wild RF Mount lenses, which show they mean business.

While Canon hasn’t exactly been innovating when it comes to their Mirrorless cameras, the same cannot be said when it comes to RF Mount lenses. There aren’t exactly a ton of native RF Mount lenses on the market currently, but the crazy development team that works behind the scenes at Canon HQ have been developing plans for some genuinely outrageous, yet possibly brilliant lenses for their Mirrorless platform.

Canon Keeps Making Fantastic Lenses That Go on Mediocre Cameras

Canon continues to push the envelope with its RF Mount lenses, but they need more cameras that can make the most of them.

Canon is really going to town with lenses for its new RF mount. Since the launch of the Canon EOS R and the EOS RP, we have seen quite a few RF Mount lenses either teased or released, and we have seen a fair few that have had patents filed for them. Today we have found out that three more RF Mount lenses (an 18mm f1.0, an 18mm f1.2, and a 25mm f1.2) have had patents filed for them. These three ultra-wide, ultra-fast lenses certainly push the boundaries in terms of what’s possible with the RF Mount, but here we are a year later with just three middle of the road EOS R cameras. What game is Canon playing? Let’s talk about this after the break. Continue reading…

If the Canon 14-21mm F1.4 L Lens is Real, You’ll Need to Start Lifting Now

A Massive 14-21mm f1.4 L RF Mount lens will likely dwarf any Canon Mirrorless camera it’s attached to.

Canon have made it quite clear that they believe Mirrorless doesn’t have to mean small when it comes to lenses. Most manufacturers have gone on to make Mirrorless cameras, and the lenses that they use smaller, and more user friendly while not giving up on quality, but Canon have taken a different approach. Instead of making things smaller, they have been creating RF Mount lenses that look like they have been hitting the gym seven days a week, and it sounds like a new RF Mount 14-21mm f1.4 L might be the biggest gym rat of them all.
