They also announced the RF24-105 f4-7.1 IS STM

The video makes it clear that you can take pictures of little things like coffee beans. Is that a thing? I can’t read the menus but could they have a limitable macro close focus distance. That’s my complaint about the RF 35.
PROBABLY THE BEST commercial i have ever seen from canon. even though I dont want the lens.

Probably unpopular opinion:

I must say, as someone who has used the Sony 200-600 (which maxes out at f6.3 and is internal zoom), the 100-500 doesn't particularly impress me. Unless it's significantly cheaper, but I seriously doubt it will be. I suppose they're trying to keep the lenses smaller, like the RF 70-200.

Want the camera.

the 00-500 seems like it may have some relationship with the 100-400 II.
400 f/5.6 with a 1.25x gives 500 at f/7.1. It’ll be similar in size to the 100-400, I’m guessing. Very portable.

Wish I could know more about video specs. Would have like to compare those to 1dx3

Can you offer reasons? Do you like the Sony? Do you see them as similar or different?

I presume the 100-500 zooms externally
Like the RF70-200.
