Sorry, I didn't have the attention span to watch a six minute video. Can you summarise what he said?

He didn't like that the zoom throw was longer and firmer on the RF version which made it harder to track and follow athletes, and he couldn't tell any difference in pictures, so he decided to save some money.

I also couldn't tell much difference in pictures going from EF f4 to RF f4. But the lens is literally half the size vs the EF on adapter, so I bring it along twice as often. A lens that I used twice as often is worth more money to me. (Or so I tell myself to justify the lens costing so much more than EF.)

Truth be told, the EF versions are awesome. Especially the most recent versions. There is no way that you couldn't be satisfied with the performance. So it really comes down to if you want to pay extra for a much shorter lens that doesn't need an adapter.

Well its zoom is longer because its geared down to move all that mass of barrel & glass. And its still not finger tip control ez. No doubt both (f2.8/F4) EF 70-200  last versions are beautiful. They are on par performance wize w the RF versions through an adapter. We will never know how good the last EF versions were with an RF mount. Makes me think of the Nikon 70-200 Z . Ahhh progress
