Pros: Portability in relation to focal range - optical quality - mechanical quality - relative compactness - stabilizer effectiveness

Cons: I prefer the zoom ring lock with slider instead of clamping ring. Cost (but that's okay...)

Opinion: Purchased used A- from trusted physical store. Only the significant discount compared to the new one made me take it, because I was really satisfied with the excellent performance of the two lenses that I left in exchange, namely RF 100-400/5,6-8 and RF 800/11. The reasoning was essentially that, since I placed the R7 (apsc) side by side with the R5 (ff) for the widlife I use practically only the smallest format; and for that reason the 100-400 was often a bit short, while the 800, for years and with satisfaction used on the FF, was far too long on the apsc. This 100-500 L turned out to be the best choice for me: the equivalent l.f. from 160 to 800mm reasonably cover all my needs; desperately, the high density of the R7 sensor allows generous crops, and I can wander around fields and hills without my back, after a while, making me regret it. Many consider this lens to be not very bright: of course, the plate data are those, but the calendar lets me know that we are in 2024, that the RAW development programs today allow me to shoot safely at ISO 12800 with excellent results, also, if not especially, for the very high optical quality of this zoom, which at full aperture is already at the top. It's useless for me to have lenses wider than half a stop, but ... it's better to aperture. I don't know if I'm making myself clear. I consider it a masterpiece on the R7. On the R5 I hope to test it better and more intensely in other areas, landscape in the first place; the tests I have done, however, confirm that it is a gem of Canon that those interested in certain photographic genres will hardly be able to give up.

Pros: Autofocus, sharpness, focal range, weight and handling

Cons: Cost, and maybe only the white livery that for the photos I take must be more discreet and the window of the hood that often remains open, but they are 'quisquilie'

Opinion: Taken after a year and a half of use of the RF100/400, which I recently sold for unused. Initially I fought to 'adapt' it to the R7 while on the R6 I had no problems. After some 'tips' read here on the forum I made custom settings and 'everything changed. I use it for birdlife and does its job excellently, fast in the MAF, very sharp even at full aperture and with the focus always active it does not lose the subject even in motion. I had to 'hide the white livery by buying a 3M film to be applied on the whole lens, I avoided putting it on the barrel of the zoom excursion for fear that it would get stuck inside. Practical use is well balanced, I use it freehand without the collar that I put only when I go out with the monopod, together with the machine it does not exceed 2 kg and compared to when I went around with the 5DMk3 / 7DMk2 and the Sigma 150/600 Sport is a real liberation. I also use it in combination with the RF 1.4x and I must say that the decay is imperceptible, maintains all the potential and with the R7 it is like having a 1200mm equivalent even if it becomes an f10 of maximum aperture. The stabilization allows you to take pictures of static subjects even at 1/30" holding the camera on a stable support and at 1/60" freehand. For the minimum focusing distance, very welcome for close subjects, I made 'semimacro' shots of excellent quality at maximum focal length. I had many doubts about the considerable expense but I must admit that compared to the RF100/400 and 'certainly better, while recognizing that the 100/400 RF is not bad at all for what it costs ...

Pros: Weight, autofocus, very sharp, excellent stabilization

Cons: Brightness but the R system forgives a little

Opinion: Given that I use it only a couple of days, it replaced with great satisfaction the excellent ef 100/400 that used with 1.4 X III on my R7 did not excite me, while the use with the R6 was excellent. Perhaps in terms of image quality there are no big differences with its little brother EF, but tracking, stability and maf speed are definitely worth the switch. Unfortunately for back problems I had to retire the excellent EF 500 F4 II, fortunately the R system forgives a bit 'the high iso so the transition to this lens will be less traumatic

Pros: Autofocus, weight, sharpness, stabilization

Cons: Brightness, limit of use with multipliers, zoom a little hard

Opinion: I was very hesitant about buying this lens, the brightness was the thing that bored me the most, but after the field test I realized that everything in the context can also be there. Let's start with the pros of this lens, the atufocus is lightning fast and the hook on the subject is of the highest level, the weight less after hours is felt mounted on R3 (compared with its peer on 1DX SLR), the stabilization is very good and silent, the sharpness of this lens is shocking the details are truly spectacular. The cons, the brightness is the most painful note because at F7.1 at 500 mm or at F6.3 at 400 mm if there is no light it is difficult not to shoot with the ISO, good is that as soon as light arrives everything returns to normal. The zoom I found a bit hard but that's okay, if you forget to block the lens does not stretch by itself. The use with multipliers is not the top, beyond that further loses brightness and here there is little to do but under 300 mm you can not mount it so the lens remains open, I personally prefer to use the electronic crop of the R3 that multiplies to 1x6 and does not lose brightness. That said, the lens is of excellent workmanship with good tropicalization and despite the price (I recommend pushing on the discount in the store that can be remarkable) I would say that it deserves a nice 9.

Pros: AF Speed - Construction with Innovative Material - Sharpness - Stabilization and Weight

Cons: Maybe the window with the focusing distance.

Opinion: What about this perspective is so much stuff ... a nice all-rounder... okay for nature photos.... It's also good in indoor arenas .... Taken with the winter Blackfridey and initially "I think like many" to spend € 3000 that perhaps with the old optics the 300mm 2.8 I did the same things? The first tests were not so exciting ... then setting well the controls of the machine R6 .... Trying trying many settings .... In the end I found the right configuration for what I do... also setting the ring C1.. C2... C3 of the R6. My answer to my initial question is Yes is it worth it... I wanted to make myself a new RF kit with this 100-500 the 70-200 f2.8 and if it will also come out the 300mm always f2.8 .... But having already had these latest EF lenses and thoroughly testing the 100-500mm I don't find it a sense to take them again.
