Canon RF 600mm f/11 Review – The Perfect Wildlife Lens For Beginners?

Canon Rf 600mm F/11 Review

Here is a new Canon RF 600mm f/11 review. The RF 600mm f/11 and RF 800mm f/11 made quite a splash when they were announced. Initially seen with skepticism, they are now getting many positive reviews.

DPReview TV posted their Canon RF 600mm f/11 review.

Chris turns a trip to Calgary Zoo into something of a safari, as he reviews the Canon RF 600mm F11 USM as a wildlife lens. Its long focal length and relatively modest price make it an attractive option for birding and nature photography but, as Chris discovers, it’s not without limitations.

Enjoy.

Also interesting: an interview with the engineers who developed these lens. Also, Canon already said there will be more such lenses. For more Canon RF 800mm f/11 and RF 600mm f/11 review stuff have a look here.
