    Since the world is going into quarantine mode, I thought it would be fun to ask what the community thinks would be their "go-to" lens!

    The lens I would choose: Canon RF 28-70mm f2

    It covers my four favourite focal lengths, 28, 40, 58, and 65. Has a transmission of T2.2 all the way through the focal lengths.

    It's weather sealed, has autofocus, is almost par-focal, is sharp yet maintains a nice balance of artistic qualities (not sterile sharp), is native RF.

    The RF mount on Komodo allows a ridiculous amount of lenses from all different manufacturers throughout all the years to be used, so i ask you this, what lens would be your "Go-To" and why?

    400mm for that bokeh (and effectively 600mm at S35 ��) Shot framing be damned

    It will be interesting to see which focal lengths will vignette on Komodo...

    The 28-70mm f2 would be great if the lens was closer to full frame and had stabilization. I'd probably go with the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 IS or the 15-35mm f2.8 IS.

    lol Blair. The Premiere 18-85 T2 w/ PL mount is over 7 TIMES the length of Komodo :)

    There's a few more options coming soon. But you all are on a good path so far. Except for Blair. He's crazy :)

    Fine, I'll show you crazy. Take the Canon 50-1,000 Cine zoom, clamp the monitor to the matte box, screw/bolt the shoulder pad to the lens support foot and the Komodo can hang off the back of the lens for counterweight ;-}. 19mm Titanium iris rods recommended, might be difficult to park in small spaces :)

    Lack of IS (if Komodo enables it), not as much wide end, and a significant bump in cost, and a significant bump in size/weight (especially considering balance issues with the small RF bodies we've gotten so far), would all be fair negatives to list comparing the 28-70 to the 24-70, depending on your needs and shooting style. They're definitely both full frame, though. Canon doesn't even have a non-full-frame RF body yet! 100% the 28-70 will cover Komodo sensor.

    Minolta MD 28-70 f3.5-4.8 macro to start with. It’s already in the kit.
    A CN-E 18-80 rig would suit me well.
