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’.

Breaking: Canon Will Announce The EOS R7 and EOS R10 On May 24, 2022

Eos R7 Eos R10 Canon Cameras Europe Canon Eos R1 Eos R Rf 14-35mm Olympic Games Ef-mount Rudy Winston

We got a tip from a very good source. Canon will make an announcement on May 24, 2022.

At this point we have no doubts it will be for the Canon EOS R7 and Canon EOS R10, and for a bunch of RF-S lenses.

The list of gear we can expect 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

Stay tuned for more to come…

There Is More Than The Canon EOS R7 To Come: The EOS R10 And A Bunch Of RF-S Lenses

Canon Eos R7 Canon Eos R10 Eos C5 Eos R1 Eos R5c Canon Rf 16mm Rf 35mm F/1.2L EF Lenses Tilt-shift Lenses Rumor

Update: we expect the announcement on May 24, 2022.

It seems we were utterly wrong about the EOS R7. Not only now it seems ascertained that Canon will release an EOS R model with APS-C sensor, but there is more we can expect.

Latest, reliable rumors from Japan suggest that Canon is set to announce a bunch of new gear, all related to APS-C imaging sensor. This is the list:

  • 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

So, it seems we will soon see not one but two EOS R models with an APS-C imaging sensor.

Stay tuned for more to come…

Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS Review (excellent all-day walk-around lens)

Canon RF 14-35mm F/4L IS Review

Here is a new Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS review.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4 to f/22
  • Three UD Elements
  • Three Aspherical Elements
  • Air-Sphere and Fluorine Coatings
  • Nano USM AF System
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

Photography Blog posted their Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS review. They gave the lens a 4.5/5 rating and a “Highly Recommended”. From their conclusion:

Optically, both the centre and edge sharpness are very high throughout all of its focal length range. Sure, you don’t get the faster maximum aperture of f/2.8 offered by the RF 14-35mm F4L IS USM and therefore quite the same shallow depth-of-field effects, but this lens is much smaller, lighter and crucially cheaper whilst offering the same build quality and feature set.

Chromatic aberrations are almost completely absent, distortion is very well controlled, and flare is notably absent even when shooting directly into the sun. The only notable optical issue is some obvious vignetting at 14mm.

[…] In summary, the RF 14-35mm F4L IS USM is an excellent all-day walk-around addition to the Canon RF lens range that we’d recommend to most users of the system, unless you’re absolutely sure that you really do need the maximum F/2.8 aperture of the RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS USM and you don’t mind paying the significant extra for it.

Canon RF 24-70mm F/2.8L

Many Canon EOS R owner wonder if they should replace their EF lenses with RF versions, or just use the EF lenses with the adapter. Here is a RF 24-70mm f/2.8L vs EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II comparison.

Todd Dominey wanted to know if there is any difference between the Canon RF 24-70 f/2.8L and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II. He says:

Is there a qualitative difference between the RF 24-70 and the decade-old EF 24-70 II? I was curious to find out, so I photographed the world’s largest junkyard of vintage cars (~4500 rusting vehicles across six miles) using both lenses on the Canon EOS R5.
