A Remarkable Long Lens
5

The price of this bad boy sure did give me pause. But having the R5 I needed to add a competent longer lens than my RF70-200 f2.8L. So I managed to find one after months of looking. The build quality is stunningly solid all the way. There is NO play in this lens at all, and it's solid as a boulder. The IS on it is amazingly stable. I even use a RF1.4x on it from time to time with NO loss of sharpness or contrast which is rare. The focus on it is completely instant with NO hesitation. I've even shot with it in my dimly lit living room for fun and found it doesn't hesitate to lock focus across the room. The sharpness is absolutely unreal excellent. I've had many longer lenses from Nikon, Fuji and Sony and NONE have been sharp on this level. Once you've used it you realize just how valuable it is to have one on hand.

Name the gear and I've probably owned it and used it.
