Pros: Small, light as a feather, surprisingly sharp, a perfect lens (not only) for hiking

Cons: Reduced brightness, lack of hood and weather sealing

Opinion: Among ef lenses I have always looked for the alternative that is light with a relatively large zoom range, and of course able to capture sharp, clear pictures. For me this solution was the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM (I also had 100-400 L and Tam 150-600, but this was my ideal partner for hiking). I bought rf 100-400 as soon as arrived to the market and I have to say that I didn't regret it. Nowadays this is my nr1 lens on short trips and it does the job perfectly. Of course its a bit darker than expected, but even with my EOS R it is not a problem even in low light conditions. Images are sharp, colours are beautiful "Canon-icals" :) before and after sunset, in cloudy weather as well. And it is works perfect in daylight. Yep, lack of tropicalization, so you wont use it in heavy rain or snowstorm, but some raindrops are absolutely ok. It is a perfect exchange of cheaper Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II nano USM but in quality its step by step with the 70-300mm f/4-5.6L big brother. EF 100-400 and RF 100-500 are playing in az upper league, but you should decide if the plusplusplus amount of money worth it for you or not. For a normal everyday usage for a non-millionaire Ill definitely stick wit this clever, tiny friend :)

Pros: Lightness and stabilization.

Cons: A lens with two souls. Good with relatively close subjects, bad a little further away.

Opinion: Lens that reminds me in all respects of the Canon EF-S 55-250 IS STM on the 70D, with the difference that the 55-250 cost a joke, even if it didn't have a metal bayonet, but it was always razor-sharp and a brighter full stop. The 100-400 is good if the subjects are relatively close, beyond that it is better to forget about the detail (will it be my specimen?). For the sporadic use I make of it, I'll make it suffice. It's dark, but you know when you're going to buy it, so this feature cannot, in fact, be counted among the defects. On the other hand, landscapes, the main reason why I took it months ago, are shot at fairly small apertures or on tripods. Honestly I'd prefer the optical performance of the 100-500, but (FOR ME) it weighs a lot of weight. So long live the lightness that combined with the rather sporadic use I make of the focal ones, will be a lens that will accompany me for a long time, contenting me with its optimal range of use. Would I buy it again ? Maybe yes, maybe no, but lightness always wins for me.

Pros: Weight, compactness, price, stabilization, autofocus, sharpness

Cons: None, if you make an informed choice

Opinion: A lens that goes far beyond expectations (at least mine). I use it in a kit with RP, RF16mm 2.8 and RF50mm 1.8 and the whole thing fits easily in a shoulder strap. Excellent stabilization and quiet and fast focusing. Very balanced with a camera body like the RP, so much so that it seems even lighter. Good construction, probably a bit delicate for intensive use. The sharpness is good even at maximum excursion and aperture (we are still talking about F/8), the blur is pleasant. Fun to use as a "macro" (unpretentious) as well. For what it costs, if you need a generalist telephoto lens to use outdoors (and during the day) you don't have to think about it for a second. Also because it is difficult to find something similar in terms of compactness, travel, weight and value for money. A little reasoning on the brightness issue: it is NOT bright, but if I had preferred a brighter model (leaving aside the price difference), the vast majority of the times I needed it I would not have had it with me because of its weight and size.

Pros: Compactness, weight and stabilization

Cons: For this price range nothing

Opinion: Bought for a family trip, where I don't have the opportunity to take all the lenses with me, from macro to 400mm. I've been testing it for a few days on a canon r8 and coming from L series lenses I found myself in my hand just what I expected. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the precision of the focus ring and the right resistance of the zoom ring. The plastics are the same as those of recent L-series lenses, the focus super quiet and even though I never do video, I wanted to test this lens and it follows moving subjects very well. Below I will make some criticisms, which are not such, if we take into account that we are talking about an entry level, the focus is sometimes a bit uncertain and unfortunately the quality of the cheap lenses is felt. It will still remain in my backpack on family trips alongside the 24-70 2.8 ii or on Sunday bike or motorcycle trips where I don't need excellent quality and above all I have to carry the minimum bulk and weight with me. I definitely recommend it to those who are beginners, you can do everything from closeups to photo hunting with excellent results for a non-professional photographer.

Pros: weight and compactness, optical quality, superb stabilization

Cons: cheap construction, lack of tropicalization

Opinion: I approached nature photography (animals, birds) and thanks to the lack of budget I bought this "little one" immediately after testing the EF 100-400 L for a few days (first version, the pump one). The first thing that immediately catches the eye is the compactness of this lens with respect to focal range: it looks like a toy compared to the EF version! The weight then is frankly ridiculous (we are talking about 635gr against 1380gr of the old EF): everything has a certain "weight", since the use I make of it is that of long walks (excursions). Like all RF lenses, the build quality leaves something to be desired: we are talking about a plastic lens (moreover an opaque plastic that seems designed to collect fingerprints, scratches and the like) and not tropicalized (but I admit, I used it in the rain without any problem). But this is a known problem, I noticed the same "low" build quality (excluding tropicalization) on the much more noble RF 24-105 L. The defects in terms of materials, however, are abundantly overcome by the optical quality and the goodness of the stabilizer: honestly I have not seen any difference in terms of details compared to the old EF L series (and does not fear too much competition even with the second generation 100-400), and the stabilization is simply of another level: coupled to the R6 this lens reaches up to 6 stops (in practical terms, I shoot quietly at 1/100sec at 400mm without worrying about blur). A few notes on brightness: of course, it is not an L series, but for daytime use it goes perfectly. The price then, considering the focal range, is quite tempting. Another point, it is compatible with RF teleconverters, great thing. I admit, if I were to continue with nature photography sooner or later I will switch to its older brother, the 100-500 RF L, but to start (considering also that it is a rather resalable lens) it is really a great tool. The convenience of transport can then be a reason – even for the most demanding photographers – to prefer this little jewel to heavier, brighter and more noble lenses.
