Very stealthy at the beach where sunshine isn't a problem.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.
that’s a slick video. Makes me want it, even though I have the f/4 24-105.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.
One of the press releases said April 2020, but it may be referring to the Cloud service. The sentence structure left it open for interpretation. I kinda think Canon would LOVE to have this in hands of the Olympics same as the DX3 thoughHow do you say April? That would be nice
The Sony is nice, but I'm sure the Canon will have better optics and build. I was just hoping they'd compete directly and make a 200-600mm. Personally I prefer the internal zoom but that's a controversial topic.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.
Looks like the wait won't be long for a lot of details. At least we should know the type of cards and probably confirm the resolution. It will be interesting to see how fast and accurate the autofocus is. I hope it doesn't hunt and lose focus like the R. Otherwise that 500mm zoom won't be of much use to birders.A preview of the EOS R5 will be on display at the 2020 WPPI Show (February 25-27) in Las Vegas.
