I just bought the 600 f4 mk2 in good condition to use with my future R5. I don't mind the extra weight vs the 500 mk2.

Do you hand hold shoot with the 600mmf4L IS II? I have seen some do it but I can really not get it done. I am too old. I definitely am ever worse with my 400mmf2.8L IS original model at 12 lbs. Then newer model III are much lighter and maybe the RF400mm will be lighter yet.

It's possible, but only for a very short time. This heavy lens is best served with a tripod, which I still don't have.

I have gimbal with my tripod to make the weight of my original model EF400f2.8L IS USM from 2005.
