    Exemplary Optics with Room for Improvement – Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM Lens, 5 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
    Embarking on the photographic journey with the Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM Lens has been an absolute joy. This lens has redefined my understanding of photographic quality and reliability. However, no product is perfect, and while I wholeheartedly give it a 5-star rating, I will also discuss some aspects that could be improved.📷🌌 Superior Optics and Remarkable Versatility: The Canon RF 24-70mm lens is a dream come true for photographers seeking versatility and top-tier performance. Its focal length range makes it ideal for a plethora of photography styles, including landscapes, portraits, and street photography. The lens’s maximum F2.8 aperture provides the flexibility to shoot in low-light conditions while also achieving a shallow depth-of-field, giving beautiful bokeh effects.🎯🚀 Precision Autofocus and Image Stabilization: The lens comes equipped with an Ultrasonic Motor (USM) for autofocus, which operates at lightning speed and with stunning accuracy. The in-built Image Stabilization system deserves applause for its ability to offer up to 5 stops of shake correction, an essential feature for handheld shooting.💪🏽⛈️ Robust Build and Durability: This lens feels like a professional tool, thanks to its robust build quality. The weather-sealed construction assures reliability even in adverse conditions. It’s sturdy yet surprisingly lightweight, considering the broad range and speed it offers.👀🌈 Exceptional Image Quality: The Canon RF 24-70mm lens delivers an impressive image quality, with fantastic sharpness, superb color reproduction, and contrast. Chromatic aberration, distortion, and flare are all well-controlled, contributing to an excellent overall image quality.🔄🔝 Innovative Control Ring: The addition of the customizable control ring represents innovative design thinking. This feature can be programmed for multiple functions, including aperture, shutter speed, ISO, or exposure compensation, allowing photographers to make quick adjustments without having to navigate the camera menu.Now, let’s address the areas where this lens could do better:🖼️📏 Size and Bulk: Despite its many strengths, the Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM Lens is not without its shortcomings. Its most notable is its size. The lens, although offering superb image quality and performance, is quite large compared to its DSLR counterparts. This increased bulk can be cumbersome for those used to a more compact setup or those who are always on the go.💼🏞️ No Lens Case Included: Another minor drawback is the absence of a dedicated lens case in the package. Given the significant investment this lens represents, the inclusion of a protective case would have been a welcome addition for safe storage and transport.🔍🌑 Slight Vignetting: Additionally, some photographers might notice slight vignetting at wider apertures. While this is a common occurrence with many lenses, especially zooms, it’s worth mentioning for those who prefer their images to be as clean as possible.In summary, the Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM lens deserves its 5-star rating 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. It offers versatility, superior image quality, and a robust build that is designed to last. The minor downsides do not significantly detract from the overall experience of using this lens. If you’re looking for a lens that will serve you well across a range of photographic situations, the Canon RF 24-70mm should be on top of your list. It is an investment worth making for the incredible images it produces, despite the slight increase in size and the few areas it could improve. Here’s to capturing life’s moments with unmatched clarity and color! 📷🎉

    Excellent lens
    Bought this lens for my Canon R camera overall it was not much better than the EF version with an adapter. Even the 24 to 105 Rf lens to me is good enough. For me I am mostly a hobbyist with a few paid jobs here and there and it was not worth paying extra money for this lens.

    Some say it’s heavy, but try carrying 3 primes
    I’m a prime user, and this is going to unclutter my backpack of several lenses. I still will use primes in low light, but see this lens as a go to travel lens for me and can’t wait to use it

    A versatile day/evening lens
    The image quality in my tests matches that of RF 35mm F1.8 prime lens, which is a faster, more compact lens at quarter the price. What you get is versatility. F2.8 is still pretty good and I can use this lens late into the evening given that moderate to high ISO images do not have visible artifacts on my R6M2.

    Excellent lens
    Was a bit nervous about swapping from my trusted Ef 24-70l 2.8l, as this is my go-to lens for all kinds of photography. If anything, the RF version is even better – sharper, lighter, great auto focus. Even the old and loved gotchas such vignetting and chromatic aberrations at focus/aperture limits don’t seemas pronounced. This is an absolutely excellent lens.Packaging, shipping were on point: all round really happy experience 🙂

    Had this for a year and a half now. Would definitely recommend it.
    If you are in the market for an all-rounder I’d suggest getting this lens.I’ve owned this lens for a year and a half now after dropping and denting my old EF 24-70 version II lens and I don’t miss the old one at all.The build quality is a modern solid reinforced plastic thing and more robust in size and weight than my old EF, but that makes it seem more durable to me and in truth it got tossed around in places like the beach, rainforests, bumping around bags, etc. That I was originally scared to do on my old thin aluminum build that the EF version had.Image quality results are about the same as the EF version too, but the focusing system is much faster and I don’t need to put an adapter on my R series cameras anymore to use it. The Image stabilization is a welcome feature that really helps will a lot of night photography I simply wouldn’t have tried with my old lens either.All in all I’d say if you have the old EF 24-70ii lens and are happy adapting it to the new cameras then by all means keep it – for this price point the differences aren’t that important.But if you are wanting the native mount, image stabilization, and faster focusing response than this is a fantastic lens great for what it is!I use this lens for portraits, landscapes, Astro photography, event photography, and weather photography – it’s the best all purpose lens out there with only the 28-70 f2 being better (but at a higher cost)Also to argue it’s price being so high: when it comes to lens choices, always choose the highest quality you can afford. Don’t try to skimp out on these because these will last you a long time and perform better than anything else. It’s really worth it. Just save up and do the thing!

    24-70/f2.8 lens
    I also chose several dealers, and finally decided on this lens, as I wished, the delivery was fast, the packaging was complete, and it feels great after using it for a while. It is a trustworthy product and seller.

    Great lens! Just be aware of how the stabilization works for video.
    This is a great lens! The pictures are very sharp, focus is accurate and fast with this lens on the EOS R. With the firmware update, the eye detect is a dream to use. The only two big drawbacks are the price and the size. I shoot video so the size and weight are actually a benefit for me, and the price is high but it is a high quality lens.My only other complaint is how image stabilization works for video. The electronic stabilization in the body can cause the frame to move trying to track a person in frame even when the camera is still, causing a very odd, unnatural look to the footage (I am talking about with the normal stabilization, not the enhanced). For some reason, with digital stabilization off and just using lens IS, it still does the same thing. I usually only have this issue when shooting a close up of a person that is mostly filling the frame, but it is something to keep in mind. This should be an amazing feature for photographers because it will stabilize not just your camera but help even with a moving subject. For video I find I sadly need to turn off IS sometimes because I can get a better looking shot handheld without getting the weird camera movements that the IS can cause. I am a hybrid shooter so I love it for photos.The focus is smooth and silent for video which is great. The F2.8 aperture gives a good amount of light and at the 70mm end of your zoom you can get some nice bokeh too.Overall I definitely highly recommend the lens and the stabilization issue is probably a software related issue in how they’ve implemented it to get the 5 stops and is something they could address with a setting added in firmware in the future. As long as you are aware of it, is something you can probably work around.

    Stunning images
    Loved everything about the entire RF line of lenses. This is a delight to use, even though it is a bit heavy.
