I am super excited to share with you some of my review along with test photos with the Canon EOS R 30MP Mirrorless Camera and the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM Lens. I did absolutely no editing to these photos. I shot in RAW, imported them into Lightroom and then exported without applying any kind of editing.

I will be adding more pictures including tests for lens sharpness, lens aberration, lens vignetting, lens contrast, etc.. Click on the images below to open much larger view of images!

So as you can see in the first image testing the Canon RF 28-70 mm F/2 Lens vignetting and distortion, there is some distortion as well as vignetting at the corners. It isn’t too bad and is somewhat better than I expected. Overall, I would consider it very, very, good. For the record, I have never seen a great result, especially when testing a zoom lens.

As far as sharpness, I would say it scored a very high score and the Canon RF 28-70 mm F/2 Lens is very sharp at the center as well as at the corners.

Now let’s look at how well the Canon RF 28-70 mm Lens does at @ 50mm and 70mm

The Canon RF 28-70 mm F/2 Lens vignetting and distortion at 50mm is excellent. There is some distortion as well as vignetting at the corners however, it is minimal. Overall, I would consider it excellent.

As far as sharpness, I would say it is excellent! The Canon RF 28-70 mm  is very sharp at the center as well as at the corners.
