Brett has been testing the Canon RF 800mm F11 IS STM and loves a lot about it!
On last week’s episode of Pro Camera Reviews, Brett shared his experiences with the new Canon RF 800mm F11 IS STM. He’s been testing it on the Canon EOS R6. Overall, it’s a nice lens, but it’s very niche. So far, he believes it’s only good for a very particular type of photographer.
In This Episode
Canon RF 800mm F11 IS STM First Impressions: A couple of months ago, Canon caused a stir when they launched the EOS R5 and EOS R6. At the same time, Canon also launched a few new lenses as well. Two lenses, in particular, grabbed all the attention: the Canon RF 800mm f11 IS STM and the 600mm variant. These super-telephoto primes were quickly ridiculed for their relatively slow f11 aperture. However, they might just turn out to be an ace up Canon’s sleeve. We have been testing the RF 800mm f11 for close to two weeks now, and our first impressions are pretty good. Join us as we discuss this lens. We’ll share some sample images too.

Why I Still Adore the Fujifilm X Pro 1: I’ve owned a number of Fujifilm cameras over the years. But the one that I’ll probably never sell is the Fujifilm X Pro 1. It uses the older 16MP X Trans sensor and was Fuji’s first ILC. Paired with small, fast, prime lenses, there’s little better than this camera. By modern standards, the Fujifilm X Pro 1 is very antiquated. But it’s still a very capable camera. Chris will lead the conversation by diving into what he adores about the Fujifilm X Pro 1. He’ll also discuss how the X Pro 2 lost its way and how the series came back home with the Fujifilm X Pro 3. The team will also discuss what made the X Pro 1 unique, like the OVF/EVF feature, the sensor, the rangefinder camera body style, the retro aesthetic, etc.
The Cult of the Sony a7s: The a7s series of cameras feature small megapixel sensors, which give them the ability to see in the dark. These cameras have always been a hit with videographers. However, they have never been seen as a tool for photographers. Over the last week, we have been putting the newest member of the a7s series, the a7s III, to the test. Given its low light capabilities, the a7s III should be ideal for documentarians and photojournalists who need a camera that’s an excellent performer in all lighting situations. Find out what our first impressions are of the Sony a7s III and see for yourself if it has the chops to be a good camera for photographers.
