    Canon R lens Prices

    Maybe I am following a phony link ....however the prices for preordering the new Canon R lenses on amazon seem premium .They have listed the 50/1.2 at $3800 and the 24-70 /2 at $4700 . These look like terrific L lenses but they are both huge and expensive .

    The 30MP sensor makes a lot of sense for Canon as its an excellent solution with superior skin tones,color saturation and enough MP for most FF applications . Its easy to compare the specifications of the various mirrorless alternatives but a lot more difficult to evaluate the files . Don t see how a wedding or event photographer could go wrong with Canon . Having viewed thousands of files taken by my daughter on her 5ds R ..for people shooting the Canon sensor is terrific .

    Its not for me as I shoot different subjects but I can appreciate Canon serving their base of customers .

    The list prices announced by Canon for the new RF lenses are:

    50/1.2: $2299
    28-70/2: $2999
    24-105/4: $1099
    35/1.8: $499.99

    Those Amazon listings for the new RF lenses are bizarre. I don't know what's going on, as other vendors seem to be honoring the "rule" that preorders don't start until Sept 12.
