The Canon costs £979 here the 300mm F/4 + 1.4X costs £2348 which is a factor . You are paying 2.4x the price to get basically the same result. Seems an expensive way to save 4" the in bag size of each lens The weight is about the same . The Canon lens is an odd looking beast

Your cost argument falls apart when you consider the cost of an R6 and R5. And no the R is not a substitute for proper wildlife/sports mirrorless while Olympus has had one since the E-M1

How do you figure that? The Rs have a more advanced AF system, higher burst speed, similar electronic readout speed, weather sealing, and if we believe Chris and Jordan's take even the IBIS is as good as the best from Olympus. EDIT: Oh, I assume you must mean the original R.
