A small packing tip concerning the very bulky RF70-200 and RF100-500 lens hoods! Both lenses share the same hood! You need to carry only one! Secondly with only minimal less prtection you can mount the RF50/1.2 lens hood ES-83. I checkted it for vignetting and protection and there is no risc involved.

I have a pre-order in for the new Rf 70-200 f4 L IS, so I am not sure if it shares the same hood with the 100-500.  I was debating the RF 70-200 f2.8 L IS, but opted for the f4 version due to size and weight.  I may have to give it some more thought since it would save room to share the hoods.

Thanks for the information.
