500 is to short so extender must be used.
it should have been 600/7.1 or 500/5.6.
100 on the sort end isn’t really needed. It could have been 200-500 or 300-600.
this is very bad because it’s unlikely that they will also make a slightly more usable variant that would be quite similar.

I have the same feelings. I would have been excited to go into R, especially as the R5 seems amazing. I was looking forward for an affordable and good telephoto, but this F7.1 is unusable, and likely they wont’t introduce another one for a long while now as they consider tele zoom covered.

sure they will come out with a &14k 600 f4 but likely no 200-600 F6.3 in the near term. Well we can still hope, but I won’t try R until they announce a usable telezoom.
