I’ve always shot Canon because I think they fit me the best, I’m picky, but they deliver. I’m all for competition etc, Blabla... but you know what’s REALLY fun? Smacking the Sony trolls off their d@mn high horses, suddenly they are sooo very quiet. I’m petty, I’ll admit, but it feels pretttttty great sometimes.:devilish:

If Canon ever reads these things, I hope that the year or so time before the release of the high (85?) MP camera gives them time to consider adding these 4 features to it:

1) Add an aperture-bracketing feature.
2) Embed Arca-Swiss compatible grooves on the bottom front & back edges so that you can mount it on tripods/gimbals with quick release clamps. This wouldn't take up hardly any space at all.
3) Add a GPS feature to store location in exif data, and enable it to be used in a low-battery-drain mode so it has minimal impact on battery life.
4) If you have one fast and one slower card slot, then allow an option to store pictures to the fastest card slot and then, in unused background time, copy the pictures to the slower card slot. Even if you have 2 identical card slots this would still be helpful to allow maximum record speed to 1 while still allowing background store to the 2nd slot.

You've got a year or so to add this if you want, and it would really make a difference to me, and hopefully really pleasantly surprise others, too.

Canon is really moving quickly this year. It’s sad that COVID-19 is hitting people so heavily. The camera industry is already in a tough financial situation, with smaller companies really under strain. I hope it won’t be the end of a couple.

be careful and stay healthy.

If none of these lenses is a telezoom besides the 100-500, we'll have to see wait to see its launch price to speculate on what might be next for long RF zoom glass.

If its well above $1499 I won't be very optimistic about what other options we'll have that will be be a nice balance of speed & affordability. Not that those two things go hand & hand ever, but I guess what I'm saying is a lot less balanced than we had with the EF mount.

Id bet there'd be a 70-200 f4L before we see another zoom that reaches 400 though.

not pleased with that 100-500, its just way too slow. I have the 100-400II and I'd rather keep that at this point. I'd rather it be a 200-500 5.6, 100-500 5.6, or 200-600 6.3. The other companies are making it, come on canon!
I hope the lens is still f5.6 at 400mm, if so, that'll be amazing. F7.1 is just ~ 2/3 slower than f5.6 so it's no big deal in practice as modern sensor can bump that ISO up 2/3 to compensate and the bokeh difference at f5.6 vs f7.1 at such long end will barely be noticeable. Adding 100mm extra is good as per me and losing 2/3 stop at the long end to keep size makes sense. DPAF has no issues focusing at narrow aperture unlike the DSLR's PDAF.

I feel the same way but I will wait for price to be announced and the reviews to come up before judging the lens. That said I am not planning to buy the Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM at all. My plea to Canon is also to make a RF 200-600 F/6.3 and/or a RF 600mm f/5.6. As you said the EF 100-400 II is a solid lens. I will use that with the adapter.

Depends where you live, for me in India that lens is useless in forests of western ghats but on grasslands of Deccan plateau and transition zone of two habitats that lens is more than sufficient.

4) If you have one fast and one slower card slot, then allow an option to store pictures to the fastest card slot and then, in unused background time, copy the pictures to the slower card slot. Even if you have 2 identical card slots this would still be helpful to allow maximum record speed to 1 while still allowing background store to the 2nd slot.
With two equal speed card slots, an option to alternate and write to both together with a further option to cross copy with idle time once the buffers are flushed. That'll give you 200% write speed at the expense of higher peak battery drain and a bit more demand on the processor.
