Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS Review (super lens, highly competitive price)

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

Here is a Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS review. One of the less expensive lens with an exceptional performance.

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

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’.

The Canon EOS R7 And EOS R10 Are The Replacement For The EOS 7D II And EOS 90D

Canon Eos R7 Canon EOS 7D Mark III

Besides us having been utterly wrong, it seems now ascertained that Canon will soon announce two EOS R models with APS-C sensor: the Canon EOS R7 and Canon EOS R10.

The Canon EOS R7 and Canon EOS R10 are very clearly the replacements for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II and Canon EOS 90D, respectively. Both lineups, the xD and xxD series, made Canon glory in the APS-C imaging sensor realm. We have no doubts that the EOS R7 and EOS R10 will continue the legacy.

We expect both the Canon EOS R7 and Canon EOS R10 to get announced along with some RF-S lenses on May 24, 2022, as we posted first. Here are the rumored specifications for the EOS R7 and EOS R10:

Canon EOS R10 specifications:

  • 24.2MP
  • 15-23 fps (Mechanical/Electronic)
  • 1x UHS-II
  • HDR PQ

Canon EOS R7 specifications:

  • 32.5mp APS-C Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • 15-30fps (mechanical/electronic)
  • 2x UHS-II supported
  • 4K @ 60/50fps (NTSC/PAL)
  • 1080p @ 120/100fps (NTSC/PAL)
  • C-Log 3/HDR PQ
  • In-Body IS
  • Announcement in June/July 2022

And this is the list of new Canon gear we expect to get announced on May 24, 2022:

  • EOS R7 body
  • EOS R7 18-150mm Kit
  • EOS R10 body
  • EOS R10 18-45mm Kit
  • EOS R10 18-150mm Kit
  • RF-S 18-45mm IS
  • RF-S 18-150mm

Are These The Canon EOS R7 Specifications? Announcement in Summer 2022?

It seems the Canon EOS R7 is coming. I still have a hard time buying it, but I might well be wrong.

Born again Canon Rumors posted a set of alleged Canon EOS R7 specifications. They seem to be pretty confident it is the real thing. Here they are:

  • 32.5mp APS-C Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • 15-30fps (mechanical/electronic)
  • 2x UHS-II supported
  • 4K @ 60/50fps (NTSC/PAL)
  • 1080p @ 120/100fps (NTSC/PAL)
  • C-Log 3/HDR PQ
  • In-Body IS
  • Announcement in June/July 2022

The EOS R7 (moniker invented by the community) would be a mirrorless camera with an APS-C imaging sensor and the RF mount. Along with the set of specification comes the years old suggestion that the Canon EOS M system is dead. We will see. Time will tell. Any ideas about the topic are welcome.

Stay tuned, and skeptical.

Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L Review (monster of a lens with monster performance)

Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L Review Rf Mount Canon Eos R

Here is a new Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L review. The RF 28-70mm f/2 is one of Canon’s “boutique lenses” for the EOS R system.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2 to f/22
  • Ultra-Low Dispersion Elements
  • Ring-Type Ultrasonic Motor AF System
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

Optical Limits posted their fuzll Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L review, and they underline the many virtues of this not-budget lens, of this outstanding lens. From their conclusion:

The Canon RF 28-70mm f/2 USM L is everything that you can expect from it – it is a monster of a lens with a monster performance. This is especially true for the broader center quality which is as good as on the best prime lenses. The outer image field is also superb in the lower zoom range. The corners soften a bit at 70mm but remain easily on a good level. That’s on a 45-megapixel sensor. On 20 to 30 megapixels, the lens is almost perfect. The native image distortions can be noticeable at 28mm but not an issue beyond. The native vignetting is quite high at f/2 but that’s no different from prime lenses. Auto-correction comes to the rescue in both cases, of course. Lateral CAs are absolutely negligible. The quality of the bokeh is good but there is a little room for improvement here. However, that’s complaining on a very high level really. The rather massive focus-breathing isn’t ideal for videos though.

The build quality is excellent which isn’t surprising given its professional target audience. The materials and assembly quality are top of the class. Weather-sealing is a natural feature at this price point anyway […] Read the review at Optical Limits…

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.
