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.
I recently made the jump from the Canon 6D to the Canon RP and realized that I loved the pictures that the camera produced with my 2.8 EF lens, so of course like any photographer out there I began looking at the RF lenses. I began comparing thie Canon 24-70 RF F2.8 to the Canon 28-70 RF F2 and I really struggled with which one to buy, and I "settled" on this one for the following reasons.
1. Price - there is a $400 difference
2. Size - the 28-70 is significantly bigger
3. Did I need it? - Moving from the F2.8 to the F2 did not justify either of the above
I rented both lenses from the local camera store for a day of shooting and when I picked them up I almost purchased the 24-70 right there, reason was the size. With the mirrorless the intent is to go smaller and the 28-70 is significantly bigger on the camera, but I wanted to shoot and give a fair judgement to both. So I took them out for a day and realized that for what I shoot there was not much difference between the lenses. I will admit that the bokeh on the 28-70 F2 is a little “better” but I would never be able to tell if I did not compare them. So, to someone who shoots portraits professionally I can see the 28-70 being the choice but really no need for it in my arsenal.
The lens is great with video and it's focus is silent I have never had an issue of catching any sound on the Rode Mic Pro
Canon is really the leader when it comes to lens quality in my opinion and the RF series is just proof of that. The lenses are incredibly well constructed, solid in your hand and work perfectly with the Canon Mirrorless cameras. The focus response is quick and works well with the camera, oh and it is silent (just had to say that again).
One of the nice features is the zoom lock that they put on to the lens to prevent it from zooming out while you are carrying it (although forgetting to unlock it is currently my biggest problem).
The lens is crisp and perfect edge to edge, in fact the results are nothing short of spectacular. If you are wanting the high end lens to go with your camera and pull the most out of your camera this is it. Worth every penny of the cost right now (to me).
Now that I have shot with RF lenses and EF lenses on the RP I will say that the RF lenses do seem to focus a bit faster and the quality is defiantly better, I believe (and others report) that this is a result of getting the glass closer to the sensor.
So, is it worth the $2299, for me yes, but I am an avid photographer who wants the best quality. For most people though you can easily get away with the 24-105 F4 at $899, so unless you need or want that extra stop just go there.
