Canon has been blazing full speed ahead with its RF lenses, with two of the new models being the RF 800mm f/11 IS STM and the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM. Both feature some of the company's latest designs and features, but offer vastly different capabilities and price points. Which one is right for you? This excellent video comparison takes a look at the image quality and experience of using both.
Coming to you from Photo Genius, this great video review compares the Canon RF 800mm f/11 IS STM to the Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM lens. At $2,699, the 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L is definitely a professional lens, but it also offers impressive image quality and the kind of performance and focal length versatility that can tackle a wide variety of genres and scenarios with ease. On the other hand, for those who are just looking to get their feet with super telephoto lenses or who simply want one for occasional use, the 800mm f/11 comes in at just a third the price of the zoom, albeit with the loss of focal length versatility and a much narrower maximum aperture. Both appear to be good performers relative to their prices, however. Check out the video above for the full rundown on both lenses.
