Don't know about the other two, but my 2 weeks with an RF800 has really surprised me in just how sharp it is, even handheld. Especially given the low cost of this lens, it's quite a value.

The RF 800 is an incredible bargain.

I used it for four months solid. It's only real negatives, for me, are the small focusing area in the viewfinder and the near 20-feet of the minimum focusing distance.

With 20ft minimum focus distance and reduced central focus area, plus fixed focal length and fixed aperture, the usage is strictly limited. RF800, although cheap and sharp, is still hard to recommend to anyone as a telephoto prime. It is a very niche product for special cases.
