I like Canon's plan with telephoto lenses...
1

I think Canon recognized that they have the wide aperture telephoto area covered better than anyone with their EF lenses, and that making smaller telephotos for the R line is where there is great potential.  Making a 600mm F4 for the R system will not have much of a benefit over their existing EF lens, so at the moment its not worthwhile.  But making a very small 600mm that extends like a zoom is something no one else has.

So I like the idea of fulfilling the promise of "mirrorless can be smaller and lighter" with these longer lenses.  Because we already have the best line up of wide aperture telephoto lenses on the planet.  I can wait for mirrorless versions. (and used EF versions that work very well are going to be a lot cheaper anyway)

Now I just how that rumored price of the 100-500 is wrong.  Because that looks like the perfect travel/hiking/wildlife lens for me.
