Will this lens work with EOS RP? I realize I would have to use the EF to RF adapter and am wondering any less of sharpness? Should I go with the RF 15-35 ; even though more expensive. I shoot landscapes and night sky.

I have heard you need to use a mounting adapter

I am considering the Canon 16-35 f/2.8 lens (or ...

I am considering the Canon 16-35 f/2.8 lens (or the f/4) for use on my 80D. In view of the reported severe vignetting would that be a problem with the 80D? It has the APS-C sensor which uses less of the image circle cast by the lens, especially in the corners. So I'm thinking it might be a good fit. I can up ISO by a factor of 2, minimum, to make up for the slower f/4 and get IS to boot while saving a bunch of money. But either lens could be acceptable. Any comments would be welcome.
Asked by: David
You would not see any vignetting when using this lens on a cropped sensor camera, it would work very well on your 80D.
