Yes
For my RP, I've got the 70-300 USM Nano, the 200mm L, 24-105 L and my current favorite - the 50mm Canon 1.4.

I got mine a while back and used it on Canon M series, the D30 and Kodak DCS - and it has to be my all time best. If I had to choose just two lens, it would be this and the 200mm 2.8. I strongly recommend anyone with an R to look at these too. I find the images just stunning with it!

Used the 200 Lii on my rp, IQ is superb, the AF was crazy fast.

I agree with RedRobin that the EOS R is an excellent camera for close up/macro photography. Whatever you stick on the front in terms of extension, etc. the electronic viewfinder gives you a clear, bright view to focus and compose (providing you remember to switch "Exposure simulation" off of course!). The other thing I have found to be a really revelation is the ability to use my left thumb on the touch screen to drag the focus point around. This is such a fast and intuitive way to do it and beats using buttons or joysticks with my right thumb any day. I need my right thumb for the back focus button anyway. Wish Canon would do a firmware update to allow me to do this on my 80D!

I think the one thing I would change is to lose that multi-function bar. I have tried to use it (set to control ISO), I really have, but I cannot get the hang of it! I struggle to turn it on (tap one end) and then I struggle to get it to control anything. Either it won't change, or it suddenly leaps to a stupid high ISO value. Anyway, I have pretty much given up and ignore this contril!

I have set mine now for a tap to magnify which I've found really useful when manual focusing for macro, and not too irritating if I do it accidentally.

that sound like good use of it. i couldn't find anything to set it too and ended up just locking it. its not going to be included in the R5 so this may be the only camera we ever see it on.
