Re: Really disappointed in the RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro


I was tempted with the RF 100mm at the moment Iím using the EF version on my R5
It was the possibility of 1.4 magnification that was tempting, at the moment I use a Marumi achromat to get higher than 1.4
But as soon as I saw the reviews I changed my mind the focus shift makes it no go for what I do
I mainly shoot damselflies and butterflies at F5.6 to 7.1 and use autofocus and often use the R5 focus bracketing feature
Itís a real shame but the focus shift would mean that this lens wouldnít be suitable for what I do
Most people do manual focus with macro but I prefer to autofocus my main subjects are skittish and I often need to quickly get the shot before the insect flies off
