This or the 70-200 for someone that does a bit of everything, but mostly travel and landscape?
Thanks for any insight!
For travel and landscapes I would think that the 24-70 mm f2.8 or 24-105 mm f4 would be a better choice than either the 70-200 mm or 100-500 mm. Of course, this is only my opinion and this is an excellent question for crowdsourcing.

Thanks for the reply!
I asked because I already know for sure that I will need either a 15-35 f2.8 or a 15-35 f4 when it comes out, as I don’t have a proper wide angle for the R Mount yet and i love their look. I’m trying to achieve highest flexibility with least amount of gear. The 2.8 comes in handy for low light and occasional portraits, which I plan to do more of, but reaching 500 might help getting those very nice compression shots of landscapes
Very though for me, although maybe the compact size of the 70-200 might convince me towards it.
I do own a 24-105 and I really like it, although I prefer more “extreme” looks like wide angles and telephoto

The RF 70-200 mm is both exceptionally compact and lightweight so for travel I would recommend it over the 100-500 mm lens. I look at the 100-500 mm lens more as an all around wildlife lens especially with the R5's 17 MP in APS-C crop. Moreover, with the 100-500 mm close focus it is also good for butterflies.

Before getting the EF 100-400 II, The EF 70-200 f/2.8 IS II was my most used lens. For the last couple years, the 100-400 II has been my most used lens: mainly for travel and for the kids' outdoor soccer games. When travelling, I pack the UWA, general purpose zoom, and the 100-400 II. A 70-200 f/2.8 is a lot better for indoor events.

On a recent long weekend trip, I brought the 15-35, 24-70 and 70-200. The compactness and the weight of the RF 70-200 was nice, but I still would have preferred having my 100-400 II. I would not like to choose between having only the 70-200 or the 100-400/500, but if I had to, I'd pick the 100-400/500 and pick up a prime at 85mm or 135mm or portraits and indoor events.

Thank you, that was something I was considering, I just have to understand how big the 100-500 is in order to plan the space in my bag vs the 70-200.. the 85mm 1.4 from Samyang is very affordable and could serve the purpose of portraits and low light scenarios
I’ll keep reading feedback and then I will decide!

Barely bigger in diameter and 2 1/2" longer than the RF 70-200

I see the add to cart, but it's been listed as coming soon for the last several days. Was it actually 'in stock'?
Yes it was. I ordered mine about 15 minutes after the initial post and I received a UPS tracking number this afternoon from Adorama and UPS. Should be on my doorstep by tomorrow afternoon. I would expect more coming in during the month of September.

I had one on order for about 2 hours, so yes it was in stock and almost shipped. I cancelled when I found out from BH that my R5 exchange (bad sensor pixels) may be delayed beyond 30 days, which means I couldn't even test the lens with any time left to return if there is a problem.

Splendid! SOLD! I’ll take one in white!

Was this on the R5? <heavy breathing>

Fast focus? Feel like quality?

These are the first ‘real’ pictures out of that combo - thanks very much!
Yes on the R5 , very quick AF and superb build quality and so light , these were shot handheld with no issues ..
