Has anyone paired the canon R6 II with new lens RF 135 f1.8 yet? Any advantages and disadvantages most likely have you experienced? Please show your pictures. Thank you.

I have both. Advantages and disadvantages compared to what? If compared to the EF 135/2, the RF is larger, heavier, a lot more expensive, not TC compatible. But it's also sharper, higher contrast, better flare resistance and has image stabilization. The EF was an old lens and not current enough when used on R mirrorless to achieve max fps rates in EFCS and mechanical shutter modes. This annoyed me somewhat.

I have found though that this combo (RF 135 & R6II) does not nail perfect focus as consistently as I have experienced with other RF lenses in AI Servo using people/face/eye detection/tracking. I'm seeing some focus 'flutter' where some shots are slightly front or back focused. It's not enough to be a deal breaker but it's slightly less confidence inspiring.

Have the lens but itís paired with my EOS R5. Havenít gotten out yet and shot with the combination a lot yet. Also previously back when I shot the 5D III and IV I had the EF 135/2L and loved it. Also had its longer brother the EF 200/2.8 II L. Canít really give you good feedback yet. I do have a good comparison test I plan to do against my Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 GM which I have and use on my 50 Mpixel A1 and 61 Mpixel A7RV.

Have you heard from anyone using it on an R5?

No one would give me the feedback of R5 and RF135 f1.8 yet but I will shoot with R6 mk2 and waiting for R5 mk2 to compare them.
