It's all rumors right? I'm reading the 100-500 will be an L lens with variable aperture. No way, what L zoom has a variable aperture? They save the variables for the cheaper consumer market. And that's fine.

But until it shows up on a Canon site, take it all with a grain of salt...

EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM

Ah, your right! I forgot about that one... Thanks for the correction.

Given that the RF 100-500L will be the RF equivalent of EF 100-400L ii, it seems perfectly normal that it has a similar variable aperture. My guess is that it is probably going to be f5.6 at 400mm (same as 100-400L), and goes to f7.1 at 500mm.
