Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM Lens Reviews : Exciting Lens with Fantastic Sharpness

By on

The Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM is a standard telephoto zoom for the company’s full-frame mirrorless system. Here are the reviews of Canon’s RF 70-200mm f/4L lens, which is now in stock and started shipping. The price of the telephoto zoom lens is $1,599 and available at AmazonB&HAdorama

This high speed, smooth lens is a recent addition to the RF lens lineup and has a very compact size. The lens offers an impressive 7.5 stops of shake correction when paired with Canon R5 and Canon R6. This is a very interesting and rather affordable lens, and it is getting some pretty good reviews.

So how does this lens perform, and how does it compare to its faster sibling, the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS (which is also heavier and bulkier)? Photography Blog posted their in-dpeth Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS review. From the conclusion:

So if you already own the EF 70-200mm f/4L II USM or can pick one up cheaply, it’s still a great lens in its own right and well worth using with an adapter on the new EOS R cameras.

Overall,though, the more than holds it own against both the faster RF 70-200mm f/2.8L and the DSLR EF lens that it effectively replaces for the future in the Canon range. F4 speed lenses are typically seen as the bridesmaids, with the flagship F2.8 being the blushing bride, but the new RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM is more than good enough to warrant your close attention.

Youtuber Christopher Frost posted his Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS review and he says:

A really exciting (and very expensive) new RF mount lens arrives for Canon EOS R mirrorless cameras. Can it offer great image quality as well as such a small size?
