  • I've shot BIF with Sigma 100-400 on 5d3, 7d2 and R. I know it's not fair to compare zoom to EF 400mm 5.6L, but that old lens almost smokes the Sigma... I've now shot BIF also with R + Sigma ...
  • I use now Sigma 150-600C @f7.1 for birds/wildlife and I'm happy with the sharpness. But I'm not happy with its Jumping and weak IS / OS, this is the biggest reason I want to upgrade. Sure I'd like ...
  • What is R5's fps in focus priority?
  • If I'm reach limited with 400mm f5.6 / 30Mp, 500mm f7.1 / 30Mp makes more sense to me. I can use that 500mm lens also as 400mm f6.3 if needed, and 1/3 stop less light means nothing in real world. ...
  • Yep. I can sacrifice the 1/3 stop of light to get 100mm more reach in a lighter package.
  • Replied in Right here...
    When I started shooting birds, my first tool was 5d3 + 2x iii + 70-200 2.8ii. That was very frontheavy combo, felt akward to me. Later I added Tamron 150-600 for reach and 400 5.6L for BIF. That ...
  • Good point, although I propably wouldn't need to shoot portrait oriented in trippd. But my problem might be when carrying the camera/lens in Black Rapid strap. because I like to turn tripod ring ...

    Of course it makes sense if someone prefer to have added reach 500mm without extender and a lens without adapter. A bit smaller and lighter too than EF + adapter? And high speed display with RF?
  • Cannot wait to see the images from 800mm f11 and hear how AF works...
  • I'm so happy I have managed resist to not to  buy EF 100-400ii. If I had it now, especially if I had bought it new, it would be harder to sell and loose money. Instead I've bought those older 300 ...
  • No you didn't say BIF. I said, because if I'm walking around with 100-400, I definately would like to shoot also BIF if possible. I still have Sigma 100-400, but soon I'll say bye bye to it... ...
  • So what did you mean to shoot then? You were talking about wildlife and  "walking around" lens. If you want to shoot something that moves a bit faster (when you are walking around), especially ...
  • You really don't want to shoot flying birds with Sigma 100-400...
  • I also want a new birding body + lens and R5 + RF 100-500 will be my choises. The only problem is..   money! 🤐 There really is always that "new premium" and also "RF premium"...
  • Sigma 150-600 owner here, yeah, this 600mm f11 is odd. RF 600mm f6.3 with great AF and IS would have been better... Canon won't get my money with this 600 f11.
  • My current bird lenses (400mm 5.6L and 150-600C) are "camo coloured" and RF 100-500 will also be. 😁
  • Replied in Locked.
    I used to have EF 70-200 2.8ii and 2xiii, but didn't like that combo for birds or action. Bought 4005.6L and it was much better AF wise. 70-200 had good AF without extender. I have now RF 70-200, ...

    I have Sigma 100-400C and 150-600C. Neither of them have good IS. AF wise 100-400 is not for action, 150-600 is a bit better, but I think Canon's AF is the winner. And how about high speed ...
  • I think I'm going only for RF 100-500 + 1.4x, because of 800mm's 6m mfd... I'd hate to have bird near me and not able to take a pic... I'm also a bit worried about f11 and STM for BIF (not to say ...
  • Yeah, seems great so far! And let us know the price.... I'm hoping it's max 2.5k € but I'm afraid it will be more than 3k at first...
