Canon has registered patents for an RF 100-600mm f/4.5-7.1 and an RF 120-700mm f/4.5-8. While not all patented lenses see the light of day, both seem more interesting than this lens other than portability. 600 f/7.1 and 700 f/8 both seem more palatable than 500 f/7.1 to me.

Your comment above is of CONSIDERABLE interest to me. An RF lens in these ranges would be truly marvelous. You are right in that Canon will often lodge patents just to keep others from accessing the field. But yes... these two lenses would be HIGHLY desirable.

Incidentally, what's my aperture with an EF 100-400mmL II + EF 2x III Extender?

I can wait for Canon. They seem to be moving more surely these days.

I'm interested too but the R5 and 6 Mark II may come out before those lenses do. Next Canon has to get the big whites out to make that base happy.

I feel even more confident that soon things will have a wonderful conclusion
