We Played with the New Canon RF 100-500mm Lens! How Is It?

In Pro Camera Reviews, we recently discussed the new Canon RF 100-500mm f4.5-7.1 L IS USM.

We’re reviewing the Canon RF 100-500mm f4.5-7.1 L IS USM and still trying to figure out who it’s for. It’s an L lens, so Canon will try to target it at the professional photographer. But we’re also sure the hobbyist will also pick it up. We’ve been using it thus far for birding and a few other things. It’s a difficult lens to test in the pandemic, but when coupled with the Canon EOS R5 it’s a total beast! Of course, it also has gorgeous image quality. We’re going to briefly go through this lens on the next episode of Pro Camera Reviews. And most of all, we’re going to talk about what makes it special.

If you’re looking for a fun time while staying safe, we strongly recommend that you tune in for Pro Camera Reviews. It’s a weekly show where the staff tackles a couple of issues in the Photo World. They mostly pertain to cameras and lenses, but sometimes things get a bit more serious. This is partly because we still feel that we need to be educators and leaders in this space. Additionally, we also need to be responsible. Episodes are done on Zoom and are recorded. They’re then shared on YouTube. We recommend that you subscribe to us on Youtube to keep up.
