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.
Very stealthy at the beach where sunshine isn't a problem. ;)

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.
that’s a slick video. Makes me want it, even though I have the f/4 24-105.

Maybe not all the EF-RF adaptors -- the CPL one may block the T/C protruding element.

But yes (maybe?) on the other two EF-RF adaptors I think?

They’d be crazy not to offer a mechanically lengthened version of each TC for use with EF big whites.

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.
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.

Me too. was really hoping to know if there would be a 6k posssible, or the 4k framerates/cropping

Think about serial TV -- the best reveals don't give you everything. They want us on the hook (for what might be) through whatever Sony announces next.

From Canon USA Press Release:

A preview of the EOS R5 will be on display at the 2020 WPPI Show (February 25-27) in Las Vegas.
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.

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 though
Lets HOPE
