RF 600MM & RF 800MM REVIEW

ARTICLES > LENSES



In the 30-plus years of the EF lens system – first introduced with the EOS 650 film camera back in 1987 – there's never been a single 'affordable' super telephoto lens. It's something I missed when I switched to my first EOS camera, as my FD 500mm f8 mirror lens was no longer compatible and, unlike nowadays, there was no adapter to convert lenses to the new system.

Then, like buses, along come two in July 2020. Last month, I got on board with both the RF 600mm f11 and RF 800mm f11 lenses and went for a ride.
