Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS Review – Is It Really That Good?

Canon RF 100-500mm F/4.5-7.1L IS Review

Here is Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS review with some attention to bird photography. How good is this lens? The RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS is an optical masterpiece by Canon, albeit an expensive one.

Key features:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4.5-7.1 to f/32-54
  • One Super UD Element, Six UD Elements
  • Dual Nano USM AF System

Jan Wegener posted his rather exhaustive Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS review. In his words:

500mm, small, light, and super flexible, sounds amazing, but can the new Canon RF 100-500 mm L IS USM deliver in the field? What about being wide-open at F7.1, is that gonna be a problem? For years I have been looking for a smaller bird photography lens that can compliment my F4 600mm prime lens. Will this finally be the lens that fits that role by delivering great image quality and the flexibility I need?

The RF 100-500mm is a remarkable lens, with many enthusiastic reviews.

Canon EOS M50 Mark II Review (excellent image quality & colour reproduction)

Canon Eos M50 Mark Ii Review

Here is a Canon EOS M50 Mark II review. How does the replacement for the hugely popular EOS M50 perform? The M50 lineup is popular with videographers.

EOS M50 Mark II at a glance:

  • 24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • UHD 4K and HD 720p120 Video Recording
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Eye Detect AF
  • 2.36m-Dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder
  • 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth; Webcam Capability
  • Extended ISO 51200, 10 fps Shooting
  • Combination 5-Axis Image Stabilization
  • EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens

ePhotozine posted their full Canon EOS M50 Mark II review. From their conclusion:

Like the model before it, the M50 Mark II offers a compact, DSLR styled mirrorless camera, with a 24mp APS-C CMOS sensor, which gives excellent image quality, with the same excellent colour reproduction that you get with Canon EOS DSLRs. You also get high-speed continuous shooting, 143 focus points, and a high-resolution electronic viewfinder. It’s also one of the cheapest Canon cameras to record 4K video, and the side mic socket will make it appealing for those who want to record video. However, it’s worth being aware of the HUGE crop into the frame when using 4K video with digital IS enabled, as this will make wide-angle video recording difficult unless you buy the 11-22mm ultra-wide angle zoom lens.

Read the EOS M50 Mark II review at ePhotozine…

They gave the EOS M50 Mark II 4.5/5 starts and a “highly recommended“. For the time being we have no more EOS M50 Mark II review stuff to list.
