pollup: Price is fine if you buy it as a kit lens, but separate it seems way too high. Also because it's a kit lens, it means it will be easy to find in the used market.

Bingo!

gavin: Cool. Good to see Sony pushing the envelope again. The no black out is a bigger deal than anything else for me. It is a high res for sports photography but I am not sure they need 50Mp and 50Mp is not high res nowadays for other photography.

This will be great for birders!

Frage: Why would anyone buy another A7R, A7S, or A9? Those who recently bought an A9II must be really upset.

Because this one is more expensive...

SVCguy: Nice, though I'm concerned about possible lag time.

I agree! Also, the iPhone 12 Pro Max has such a wide regular camera! It would allow you to take some rather unique selfies!

I have a dream: Too bad that if you want the best photographic features, you need to buy the Pro Max which is way too large (and expensive).

You'll really need deep pockets. ;)

There is such thing as big enough, and too big. Even normal high end cameras like the Canon 1DX Mark III, Nikon D6, Sony A9 II etc. only have screens about 3-3.2 inches. If the next future iPhone 13 Pro Max is any bigger than the 12 Pro Max, it will not fit in my pockets!

I agree, Apple should realize that many people do not want such a huge phone. These phones are definitely getting larger. Pretty soon, there will be no difference between the size of the iPhone and an iPad Mini...

Roger, I am very glad that you are joining DP. I just rented an RF 70-200mm f/2.8 lens from you guys, and it was exceedingly sharp. I have also purchased multiple lenses from your used equipment site, and every lens I have bought from you has been better than described, and tack sharp. I bought a EF 100-400mm lens 2 weeks ago, and I am certain their cannot exist a sharper copy that the one I was sent! Thanks a lot!

Nikon33: I am someone who owns this lens, and as you can see from my gear list, I have other options as well, including the Tamron 150-600mm G2, the Canon 600mm f/4L IS III, and the Sigma 150-600mm. In the limited time I have had it, I have enjoyed using the 800mm very much on the R5. The autofocus spanks those superzooms adapted, and I do not have to worry about compatibility issues. I have posted some pictures with the combo on my IG page @alphonsus.deodatus.photos

In fact, because of the light weight, this is a lens I can easily take wherever I want to go. I will not be selling mine anytime soon. The lens is even lighter than the 150-600mm!

Yes, this lens can produce horrible results when used in the middle of the day in terrible lighting, and battling heat haze. But so will my 600mm f/4 or any other lens. I shot with this early in the morning, and I achieved results that I was very happy with.

@RPJG, I have the Sigma (Sport) only in Nikon mount. However, that lens literally weighs more than my Canon 600mm f/4L IS III! I rarely, if ever take it out with me. In fact, I now usually plan to take the Canon 600mm and 800mm f/11, and the 150-600mm. Of course, my younger siblings end up with the 150-600 90% of the time, and I stick to primes.

Exactly. I have actually had the pleasure of owning both 800mm f/5.6's before (Canon and Nikon). Unfortunately, the Nikon version of the 800mm f/5.6E ruined it for me. The Nikon is so much better that I admittedly didn't like the Canon one. The caveat is that the Nikon is newer and far more expensive. I would say that Nikon makes the best 800mm lens, but the price is a whole other discussion...

steelhead3: Lack of contrast, plus obviously having to shoot in mid day sun are downsides but price and focal length are the upsides. I thank Canon for thinking outside the box. Nice to be able to get a shot of a Swainson's hawk.

Mid day sun? You are asking for heat haze issues, like I see in some of the sample images. I have not changed my shooting routine of shooting early in the morning. I have had excellent results shooting with this 800mm lens in the morning.

I am certain just about 100% of the people who are criticizing the lens have never used it before.

Besides 2 card slots, what reason is there to buy this over a lightly used Z6? I just don't get it...

Mine is one of the "affected" ones. Does anyone know if Tamron will provide a label? I have been experiencing issues with CA, so it absolutely makes sense that something is wrong. I would hate to have to pay for a label!

Nikon33: I do find this absolutely ridiculous. As several have already mentioned, many teens use iPhones, myself included. Thankfully I copy and pasted in all of my AP exam answers this year, so I did not suffer any issues submitting. But I know some classmates who faced this exact issue.

I mean, you can set it to JPEG, but it requires menu diving. I am a photographer, so I rarely use my iPhone, but for most American teens, they rely on their iPhone for 100% of their pictures. Menu diving is the last thing on their mind, much less whether a file is a HEIC, RAW, JPEG, TIFF, or whatever.

snapa: Great specs on paper, do not equate to great pictures. Once all those high tech specs are proved to actually work and create great pictures, I will (at that time) be impressed.
Until then, it's just a bunch of marketing BS to keep people from jumping ship to other much better existing cameras from other manufacturers.
BTW, this all looks and sounds like just another rumor article with no actual specs or prices. The most interesting thing is how many click it got :/

Stevejac: I have one of those Len coffee mugs. Once I turned on the Keurig but had forgotten to put a cup in the coffee maker. As coffee dripped into the catchment base I grabbed the lens mug and lunged to put it in. My daughter, then a young adult, screamed at the shock of putting a camera lens into a coffee maker.

That alone was worth the price of the cup!

Hahahahaha!!! :)
