Re: Super-telephotos for the R5 - 600 f4 mk2

We faced the same decision and bought an EF 400 f/2.8 IS USM (version 1).  Yes - it's heavy, but for "just" $3,200" for a lens still in Excellent condition, it's fine on a gimbal mount.  Mated to the new R5, we are getting some of the best bird and other wildlife pictures ever.  Frankly, with the $9,000 savings over the modern version iii, and an anticipated even more expensive RF version at some point, I think it was the value buy of the year.  Suddenly the Sigma 150-600 is no longer getting used.  The IQ is just soooooo superior with the 400 f/2.8, that there's no reason to even click the shutter with the Sigma any more.
