Actually it was a 400mm f/2.8 but that’s definitely not the norm and times have definitely changed since then. Now you have the choices of several 150-600mm lenses, a 60-600, a 200-600 and a 200-500, all faster than this lens. Competition in this area is pretty tight.

You started at the top! I didn't go to that lens until I spent time with lighter lower cost lenses. I guess we'll  see how the new lens fares. I'm expecting it to be surprisingly good and I will definitely buy it. But while I am not expecting it to be a replacement for my DO, I expect it outperform third party lenses (even if they are theoretically brighter) by a good margin.

What I really want to see is a new light weight RF500/4L. Should be able to come in at about 5 lbs. That will be an awesome lens with the 1.4x.
