Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM review

Two-minute review

A telephoto lens is an essential part of a photographer’s camera kit but, until recently, there was no native option for Canon’s RF mount. And that’s where the Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-71 L IS USM comes in. It’s the first super-telephoto zoom lens for the EOS R-series cameras, adding an extra 100mm reach over the very popular EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L Mark II DSLR zoom.

Despite that extra reach, the RF 100-500mm doesn’t take up any more space in a bag than its older DSLR counterpart, while also being marginally lighter as well. And, thanks to in-lens stabilization, it makes it much easier to use handheld for long periods of time, especially when paired with the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 bodies. That, in turn, means you can potentially leave your tripod behind to keep weight down if you’re going walkabout.
