Indeed, at least from canonrumors:

  • Canon RF 85mm f/2 IS STM Macro £649
  • Canon RF 100-500mm f/4-7.1L IS USM £2,899
  • Canon RF 600mm f/11 IS STM £699
  • Canon RF 800mm f/11 IS STM £929

100-500 is over budget for me, but hey I don't think I've ever had a chance to own a 600mm and 800mm lens with AF at those prices. Yes its F11 but it's still an option. I don't know about the 600mm cause we do have the likes of 150-600 from Tamron and Sigma and the 60-600 Sigma, but I would imagine this 600mm is a lot lighter, aligning to the reason for going mirrorless, lighter and more compact overall size. And the 800mm at least now there's a cheaper option to even reach 800mm now which I welcome.

Some have said the 800 F11 is like an MFT 400 F5.6 lens.   They make a great 300 F4, and with a 1.4x TC it becomes a 420 (840) F5.6 (F11).   I've read a lot of good things and seen some wonderful pictures from the lens/TC.

I don't know if the Canon will be as good, but it looks to be 1/3rd or 1/4th the price,
