Canon, Shamelessly, Has Already Reneged On Promise Of A ‘Control Ring’ On Canon RF Lenses.

Though it was pre-announced, Canon in the last few days announced the availability and the pricing for the RF 24-240mm zoom. I hadn’t looked at it much previously because it was not available.

As soon as I looked at it I noticed the absence of the RED Control Ring. Looked harder. It only has two-rings: one for zooming the other for manual focus. IT is a bona fide RF lens, so where is the Control Ring?

I went looking. Here is the answer. It does NOT have a DEDICATED Control Ring!

When you are using auto focus (AF) the focus ring can be used as the Control Ring, BUT that does not work in manual focus mode.

That is very poor and disappointing. Shame on YOU Canon. Talk about breaking a promise so early.

Well, does NOT matter. I will not buy this lens. I wasn’t going to buy Japanese anyway until they stop commercial whaling.

My new Tamron 28-300mm, with vibration control (VC), has better reach, decent image quality and a CONTROL RING because I use it with an adapter that has such a ring. So, Canon you know what you can do with your new 24-240.

This was at Concord Market Days yesterday. Happened to see it and was thrilled that my Canon EOS RP, with the 28-300mm Tamron all-in-one zoom, was fast enough to let me snap two pictures — because it was floating fast and furious.

Yes, it reminded me of the plastic bag scene in ‘American Beauty‘ (1999).
