Canon EOS R5 Review For Bird Photography (with RF 100-500mm & EF 400mm/600mm lenses)

Canon Eos R5 Review 8k Video Firmware Updste

Here is a fresh Canon EOS R5 review with focus on bird photography. A native RF lens and two big white EF telephoto lenses are used.

Jan Wegener reviews the Canon EOS R5 focusing on how well it suits for bird photography. He is tesing the R5 using the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS, and EF 400mm f/2.8L II and EF 600mm f/4L IS II lenses. In his words:

After all the gear reviews lately it was time to head out and do some shooting for myself with my favorite gear. With the Canon EOS R5, RF 100-500 & EF 4/600 L IS II, I headed on the road to find an elusive bird. Rumour has it that he can be found in a small fishing town! Will I find him and my other target species?
