Canon RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM Lens Reviews Roundup
From PhotographyBlog review :
Ultimately whether you think the asking price of £3079.99 / $2999.99 for this lens is acceptable or not comes down to how you intend to use it and how many other lenses it could effectively replace in your kit. Pro photographers looking for the ultimate in speed and image quality need look no further. More casual shooters who primarily value portability and cost should look at the RF 24-105mm f/4, which is an excellent lens in its own right. But if you want to be blown away by what Canon are capable of delivering via their new EOS R full-frame system, then look no further than the incredible Canon RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM lens.
From The-Digital-Picture Conclusion :
The Canon RF 28-70mm F2 L USM Lens is a large, heavy and expensive lens that is also awesome. Garnering a world’s first on its credit list, this lens brings the f/2 aperture to the extremely useful standard zoom lens. With the RF 28-70mm F2 L Lens in your hand, it is like having a large kit of prime lenses always mounted on the camera. That this single lens may be able to replace a kit of alternative prime lenses makes those three downsides much more tolerable. The image quality provided by this professional-grade, all-around-high-performing lens significantly lessens any pains remaining.
With price being a barrier to entry, those affording this lens will be able to differentiate their capabilities from those that cannot, creating a desirable separation for photographers who rely on their imagery to earn an income.
