So, um, were well into the second half of 2022, no 300, no 500, I'm waiting on this 500/4. Maybe you should get new sources cause this hasnt happened.

This is a “rumors” site.

Hopefully the timeline is just off due to Covid/supply chain. I'd very much appreciate these two lenses specifically. It will also something pretty much impossible to find in the mirrorless space (apart from the Fuji 200 F2 which is roughly 300/2.8 equiv but doesn't take a 2X TC)

Apparently, yes. Whether it's covid, supply chain or Canon seeing that there are better returns in doing non-Big Whites, are anybody and everybodys guess.

My 300 Mk II is getting very little use after I got the 200-400.

Weight difference of the past 25 years of select Canon EF & RF lenses.

Bonus: NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S

I would not be surprised that these RF lenses will be less than 2.2 kilograms when released within 20 months

It seems like there’s an echo on the forums today.
