  • Sergei

    Greetings Arkady. I can't understand how. New BZK system, why do they produce frankly dark lenses? Especially on a full frame. After all, they can and do lighter ones. Dat marketing? The poverty of the population? As for me, I won’t buy such a lens for myself, just as I won’t buy a lighter one from the RF line, because of the cost. And I will buy older ones and through an adapter. Well, it is in my case. All the same, why frankly dark glasses are riveted. Outside, progress is progressing by leaps and bounds, but their progress is somehow clumsy.

    • Andrei

      Look at the price of a light zoom, compare it with a dark one and you will understand why they are made.

    • B. R. P.

      Already wrote more than once. Benefit. The cost is less. Modern cameras are sensitive enough for 6,3, 7,1, etc. It is strange that some are still in captivity of illusions about progress)

    • Dmitry Kostin

      The answer can be seen on the lens page:
      https://www.canon-europe.com/lenses/rf-15-30mm-f4-5-6-3-is-stm/
      Canon marketers position it as a lens for vloggers and travelers.
      Main advantages: small and light, good stub and small mdf.

    • Dmitry Kostin

      “It’s all the same, why frankly dark glasses are riveted.”
      Because it's not an L series, so it's a dark zoom.
      For those who need something better, they will do something like 17-40 / 4L IS.
      “And I’ll buy older ones and through an adapter. Well, it is in my case.”
      This is a popular opinion if you read reviews of various RF lenses on youtube.
      Not everyone is ready and can pay a thousand or two dollars for an L lens for RF, when flea markets are littered with lenses for an EF mount, such as inexpensive 17-40 / 4L or 70-200 / 4L, which are not bad on R6.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      1. for the width for many tasks, high aperture is not important
      2. price (remind me how much a bright Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM SLR costs there? Four times the price of this one.)
      3. again the price (remind me how much the light mirrorless Canon Lens RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM costs there? Again 4 times more expensive.)
      4. there is a stub here, in the same Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM there is no stub.
      5. compactness (dimensions and weight, the light filter is only 67 mm and the weight is less than 400 grams
      6. they do both light and dark, professional and amateur (if they only did dark ones, the question would be different)

      • Vlad

        I think the question is why so dark. Kenon introduces 6.3, 7.1, 8 at the long end of zooms. Although earlier the standard was 5.6
        As a result, we come to the conclusion that progress is not in the direction of improving the quality of the photo (reducing noise due to low-noise matrices), but in the direction of maintaining quality while reducing the aperture ratio of optics (and its cost). However, there is no price reduction
        As a result, it turns out that kenon uses progress not to give more to users, but to put more in their pocket

        • Arkady Shapoval

          it's not just Canon

        • B. R. P.

          Progress always goes hand in hand with business)

        • Jea reth

          Everything is trite. Previously, the systems were mirrored. In a mirror viewfinder, at 5,6, you already want a night vision device for yourself, and if the hole is closer to 8, then even during the day you won’t really see anything. And the bzk can see with any aperture in almost complete darkness - the question of signal amplifiers from the matrix. This time.
          Also, now phase sensors have sufficient sensitivity and, at the same time, accuracy to work with a small aperture. This is already a dubious argument, but it also has a place to be.
