The Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM is the latest in Canon's line of respected telephoto and supertelephoto zoom lenses. How does it compare to its predecessor, the already impressive EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM? This great video review takes a look.
Coming to you from Jan Wegener, this excellent video review compares the Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM to the highly respected EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM. The EF 100-400mm is well known for being a versatile performer with excellent image quality, making it useful for a huge range of applications, from sports to bird photography, especially considering it gives professional results at a fraction of the price of ultra-expensive supertelephoto primes lenses. The RF 100-500mm is the natural mirrorless analog to the EF version, bringing impressive image quality and autofocus performance along with the versatility of an extra 100mm of reach at the long end of the lens. For those who already own the EF 100-400mm and are slowly transitioning to mirrorless, this raises the question of whether it is worth upgrading to the RF 100-500mm or simply using an adapter with the EF version. Check out the video above for Wegener's full thoughts.
