I have reported many times about a small and affordable Canon RF 100-400mm zoom lens, and another patent for such an optical formula has appeared.
Canon RF 100-400mm f/5-7.1 IS USM
- Focal length: 103.00mm 200.00mm 388.50mm
- F-number: 5.00 6.26 7.10
- Half angle of view: 11.86° 6.17° 3.19°
- Image height: 21.64mm 21.64mm 21.64mm
- Lens overall length: 215.58mm 255.38mm 293.58mm
- Backfocus: 38.40mm 58.61mm 78.01mm
This lens has been on our RF lens roadmap for quite some time, but is listed as an RF 100-400mm f/5.6-7.1 IS USM. It will obviously be small, lightweight, and quite affordable when compared to the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM
An RF 100-400mm lens has also appeared internally at Canon and was scheduled to have already been released but has been delayed by COVID.
It was expected to.
This, the 600 f/11, and the 2x Entender are all I would ever need to own.
I can rent big whites and use my micro four-thirds setup when I need to.
I hope everyone gets what they want, and your needs might well be met by some EF-RF adapter/extenders that let you use EF lenses that best meet your needs.
This, I'm expecting around double the cost of the 70-300
Yup, the longer focal lengths may provide more reach but 70-300 pairs nicely with the 24-70 in size and ramge.
