The Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM is the first super-telephoto zoom lens and a great addition to the rapidly expanding range of RF-mount lenses for EOS R-series cameras. Here are the latest Canon RF 100-500mm F4-7.1L IS USM Lens reviews and samples published on the web.
The compact and lightweight lens features optical image stabilization of up to five stops of shake correction with three different IS modes, including standard, panning and during exposure only. Two Nano USM motors are at the heart of this lens and provide users with high-speed, smooth and quiet auto focus with a minimum focusing distance of three feet.
From The-Digital-Picture Review:
Many referred to 2014 as the “Year of the Lens”, and the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens was one of many 2014-announced models. That lens was the hottest, most in-demand model of them all. The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II is in an elite class of zoom lenses capable of producing prime-grade image quality at all available aperture and focal length settings. Put a very useful focal length range into a ruggedly-built, pro-grade lens with fast and accurate AF, very effective image stabilization, and very impressive image quality, and it is destined to be a very popular model. The 100-400 L II quickly became one of my favorite and most-used lenses.
The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens set the bar very high, but the Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM Lens has cleared it. Only six years after the EF 100-400 L II was released, the Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM Lens is on the streets. Featuring a lighter weight and longer focal length range, this lens surpasses the impressive predecessor in many regards and gained immediate strong popularity. This lens and I are going to spend a lot of time together.
From CameraLabs Verdict :
Ultimately the RF 100-500mm becomes the best overall long telephoto zoom for the EOS R system, and will delight sports and wildlife photographers. Like other RF lenses, it’s unapologetically high-end with a price tag to match, but brings genuine advantages over the already excellent EF 100-400. If your budget will stretch it comes Highly Recommended, especially to owners of the latest EOS R bodies who can use it to really exploit their improved autofocus and burst capabilities.
From PhotographyBlog conclusion :
The new Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM improves on its popular DSLR predecessor in a lot of ways – it’s sharper across the frame and throughout the zoom range, has a more effective image stabilisation system, is lighter and more compact, offers faster autofocusing, features a fully removable tripod collar and a customisable control ring, and extends further to offer 100mm extra reach.
If you can afford the sky-high price-tag, then we can certainly recommend the Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM as a simply brilliant telephoto zoom lens for Canon full-frame mirrorless camera owners.
