To state the obvious, Canon's f4 lens is full frame, so actually f4. Not f6. Pretty major difference for a lot of folks, and frankly as a Canon full-frame user the f4 was a weight/cost compromise from the f2.8.

Agree one the use cases obviously. The lens isn't for me, but obviously some folks will find great use for it.

Yes and no. Sure, there is a DOF difference due to the sensor size. But light gathering is the same. f4.0 is f4.0. DOF equivalence doesn't change that.

The points still apply between a faster, shorter focal range unstabilized lens, and a wider focal length stabilized lens with a slower aperture.
