Forums > Back > next OL lens test - Canon RF 800mm f/11 IS STM

If I had to choose between the Canon RF 800mm f/11 and the Sony 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3, I for one, would have a clear preference.
Of course, that's irrelevant within the Canon scope, but then Canon is a choice as well.
  If you are shooting Canon the lens road map is somewhat more limited, there are no 150/200-600mm zoom lenses at similar prices to the 800mm F11, the nearest is the 100-500mm which at the long end terminates at F7.1 and costs an arm and a leg ...... and no TPM glass either!
 So Canon have got you by the short and curlies ...... Smile
And now Nikon joins the 600mm game. Smile
No, I'm totally not regretting skipping the RF system altogether, although there are some nice(-looking) lenses there. I don't owe it to Canon to follow their every zigzag though, even though I've been a user for 16 years (and counting).
Same for me for Nikon.


Sony a6300, Sony a6000, Sony NEX-6, Sony E 10-18mm F4 OSS, Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS, Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS, Sigma 150-600mm Æ’/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary, Samyang 12mm Æ’/2, Sigma 30mm F2.8 DN | A, Meyer Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm Æ’/2.8, Samyang 8mm Æ’/3.5 fish-eye II | Zenit Helios 44-2 58mm Æ’/2 
Plus some legacy Nikkor lenses.
