The Canon EOS R6 and RF 28-70mm f/2L: A Versatile Combination

Canon's new mirrorless cameras and lenses have hit the market in a fury, offering superlative features and groundbreaking designs. If you are looking for a great combination for portraiture work, check out this fantastic video featuring the Canon EOS R6 and RF 28-70mm f/2L on a portrait shoot.

Coming to you from Julia Trotti, this excellent video takes a look at the Canon EOS R6 in tandem with the RF 28-70mm f/2L lens. No doubt, the EOS R5 is an amazing camera, but 45 megapixels can be a bit of overkill for a lot of work, and one must also consider the increased demands on storage and processing such high resolutions entail. On the other hand, the 20 megapixels offered by the EOS R6 are very much a sweet spot for a lot of work. And when it comes to the RF 28-70mm f/2L, it is undoubtedly an expensive and extreme lens, but with its unique f/2 aperture, it has the potential to replace a bag full of prime lenses, saving a lot of size and weight and potentially justifying its cost depending on your needs. Check out the video above for Trotti's full thoughts.

The 28-70mm f/2 is gigantic. You have to see it to believe it - it is comically huge.

I just got one, and it really is bonkers how big it is. I love it, though!

Definitely with you on that. I kept my EF 16-35 for that, but replacing a bunch of primes with the 28-70 has been nice!

I’ve been using it since January and I’m completely used to its size. It’s not a big deal.

It is big, and with my R5, it’s a magical lens in what it captures in a wide arrays of conditions, and yes it is comically big. But being a constant f2 zoom I’m sure has some pixie dust and unicorn hair involved in the manufacturing process..
