ePhotozine posted their full Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. And like the other reviews we featured, this one too is rather fond of the lens. They gave the Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS a 4.5/5 rating and a “Highly Recommended”. From their conclusion:

Canon RF users are being treated here with a super lens, with real pulling power to bring in those more distant subjects, plus the bonus of having an impressive close-up ability. And all at a highly competitive price. If only there was weather resistance then it really would be hard to beat.

Lenses that go beyond 300mm have always had a serious price penalty, but it does look as though this is now breaking down and bringing that 400mm reach more within a reasonable budget.

For the Canon RF user, this lens looks to be a bit of a no-brainer, with most of the right features, the right quality and the right price. ‘Highly Recommended’.

Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS Review (solid lens for the money, D. Abbott)

RF 100-400mm F/5.6-8 IS Review

Here is another Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review, by one of our favorite gear reviewer. Although it is not an “L” tier lens, the Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS gets a lot of very positive reviews.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/5.6 to f/45
  • One UD Element, One Aspherical Element
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • Nano USM AF Motor
  • Maximum Magnification: 0.41x at 400mm
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

Dustin Abbott posted his exhaustive Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. From Dustin’s conclusion:

[…] a truly portable lens that brings this incredible focal range into the kind of size and weight combination that many more photographers can cope with.

[…] For the money, this is a solid lens. It definitely has its limitations, but it pulls off this challenging focal range in a pretty convincing faction…and that small size might mean that even those with deeper pockets might pick one up just for the sake of its portability. This is a solid move for Canon, and the RF 100-400 IS is a lens I suspect will sell very well for them.

[…] it will also work fine for those that shoot action, birds, or wildlife in reasonably good light. The autofocus is quick and quiet, and I had no problem locking onto subjects. Just be realistic about the kinds of lighting situations that you’ll be able to get enough shutter speed to stop action, and you’ll be fine. I can see this lens being a “bridge” lens for many – the telephoto option they can afford now while they save (or hope) for a more premium option in the future. For the money, this is a solid lens.

As usual Dustin Abbott’s reviews come with sample images, comparison charts, and all the information you might want to know. Dustin’s reviews are what I look for when I am about to purchase new gear. As usual Dustin Abbott also releases a complete video review. See below.

Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS Review (a surprising lens and pretty darn good)

RF 100-400mm F/5.6-8 IS Review

Here is a Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. An affordable lens for the Canon EOS R system.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/5.6 to f/45
  • One UD Element, One Aspherical Element
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • Nano USM AF Motor

Admiring Light posted their Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. Says the reviewer in the conclusion:

[…] the RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM [is a] a surprising lens. When it was first introduced, it was easy to dismiss as a slow, cheap consumer zoom that probably wasn’t very good. Well, it does have a slow maximum aperture, and it is fairly inexpensive, but it is pretty darn good. While it isn’t going to challenge the RF 100-500mm f/5-7.1L in ultimate image quality, the lens manages to produce images with very good sharpness, nice bokeh and overall high image quality. The lens also has an excellent image stabilizer, fast and accurate autofocus and is small and light enough to be a lens that makes it into your bag every day.

This last part is key. Before this lens, I usually dreaded carrying lenses longer than 200mm. With the 100-400mm, it’s a pleasure to have in my bag. It can fit in the vast majority of camera bags with no issues, and weighs less than the RF 24-105mm f/4L. This compact size, along with the excellent AF and good optics makes this a perfect lens to carry for daily shooting. It’s a great bargain and a lens most Canon R shooters should consider for their kit. Highly recommended.

Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS Review And Sample Photos

RF 100-400mm F/5.6-8 IS Review

Here is a new Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. Interesting land affordable lens the Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS.

Photography Blog posted their exhaustive Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. There is also a set of sample pictures. From their conclusion:

The new RF 100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM is the best super-telephoto lens for most Canon full-frame mirrorless shooters, delivering satisfyingly sharp results and being compact and lightweight enough to carry around all day, and it’s also something of a bargain to boot.

The main rival to this lens is the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM, which at an eye-watering £2899.99 / $2699.99 will be well out of the price range of most people.

For everyone except professional users who will use the 100-500mm day in, day out, at just £699 / $649 the new RF 100-400mm makes a lot more sense from a financial point of view.

Thankfully its not just the price tag that’s appealing – it also delivers the goods in most other departments, from image quality to focusing speed, from build quality to feature-set.

Canon RF 16mm f/2.8, RF 100-400mm, Accessories Product Description Leaked

Rf 16mm F/2.8 STM Review

Courtesy of Nokishita, Here it is:

RF16mm F2.8 STM

Compact, versatile, speedy and affordable, the new RF16mm F2.8 STM lens is a terrific complement to any
EOS R series digital camera. Offering an ultra-wide angle of view and a bright f/2.8 aperture, it’s an
excellent choice whether taking interior photos in tight spaces, seeking out the perfect landscape, or as the
perfect webcam lens when used in combination with an EOS camera and EOS Webcam Utility on a video
call. With a 16mm F2.8 lens, you can experiment with enhancing perspectives, capturing starscapes, or with
the close focusing distance of 13cm, get up close to your subject while still keeping the background more
visible. Video users will find this ultra-wide lens a natural for vlogging, especially with its supremely light
weight.
With its remarkable combination of optical excellence and refined performance, all in a small package that’s
easy to bring most anywhere, the RF16mm F2.8 STM is a stellar companion to any EOS R series digital
camera.

RF100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM

Perfect for wildlife, sports, travel and more, the RF100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM is a compact, lightweight
telephoto lens for EOS R Series cameras, offering a versatile zoom range that brings subjects closer with
ease. The RF100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM is similar in size to the EF 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 IS II USM lens, but
not only reaches to 400mm, but also has fast Nano USM focusing and up to 6 stops of Coordinated IS when
used in combination with an EOS R series camera featuring In-body Image Stabilization like the EOS R5
and EOS R6, or 5.5 stops with an EOS R/RP camera. Using a single Ultra Low Dispersion lens element
towards the front of the lens group corrects chromatic aberration throughout the entire zoom range, making
your images look crisp and colorful with minimal color blur. The RF100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM lens can also
accept both the RF1.4x and RF2x tele extenders giving you the effective maximum focal length of 560mm
and 800mm respectively. With a control ring that allows for quick setting changes, including shutter speed
and aperture, the RF100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM lens puts quality, convenience and control in your hands.

DM-E1D

The Stereo Microphone DM-E1D is a compact microphone accessory for compatible EOS cameras that
include the multi-function shoe. The Stereo Microphone DM-E1D easily mounts to the multifunction
hotshoe creating a digital connection to the camera. This means that no internal battery or cable connecting
the mic to the camera’s mic port are required, helping you utilize the mic longer and also no impediment in
using the vari-angle screen to its full range. It features a number of directional controls to suit the
environment and your shooting needs. Shotgun mode keeps audio focused on a subject directly in front of the
camera, such as when interviewing someone for a documentary. Stereo (90°/120°) mode captures audio over
a wide area for more ambient sound, ideal for nature scenes or entire orchestras. Adjusting the mic controls
is as simple as pressing the menu button on the back of the microphone and using the touchscreen LCD on
the back of the EOS camera to change settings. Whether you’re looking to capture an interview, record a
concert or simply capture the sights and sounds of nature, the Stereo Microphone DM-E1D pairs
wonderfully with a compatible EOS digital camera to help you achieve impressive audio.

AD-E1

For a seamless transition from your current hot shoe accessories to the multi-function shoe, the
Multi-Function Shoe Adapter AD-E1 is the answer. The Multi-Function Shoe Adapter AD-E1 provides a
reliable connection for dust and drip proof Speedlite accessories that you may already own such as the
Speedlite EL-1, Speedlite 600EX II-RT, Speedlite 600EX-RT, Speedlite 580EX II, ST-E3-RT or OC-E3 flash
cord. The shoe adapter will also hold current accessories such as shotgun mics and on-camera LED panels
securely to the camera body with dual locking pins on the multi-function shoe side.

ST-E10

For wireless Speedlite setups requiring one or more off-camera flashes, the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E10
delivers a transmitter compatible with EOS cameras that include the multi-function shoe. Since this
transmitter maintains a digital connection to the camera through the shoe, it does not require batteries,
making the design approximately 30% smaller and approximately 50% lighter (than the ST-E3-RT II).
Controlling and changing the 5 independent groups across 15 Speedlites is as easy as pressing the menu
button located on the transmitter and adjusting the settings from the vari-angle touchscreen on the back of
the camera, or with the flash setting screen when using the Canon Camera Connect app on your smartphone.
With full flash control at your fingertips, the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E10 is an indispensable tool for
advanced, professional flash photography.
