Super telephoto lenses are generally expensive and huge. Lenses like the Canon EF 600mm f/4.0 are both ridiculous in terms of their size andweight and the price. Recently, Canon unveiled two super telephoto lenses, the RF 600mm and 800mm f/11 prime lenses.
Many of us were interested to see what these two lenses were all about, and Gordon Laing, a popular YouTuber, managed to get his hands on both of them. In a video, he gives a hands-on look at both lenses and gives some of his thoughts on their performance. What's incredible about these two lenses is the fact that they are tiny in comparison to the larger-aperture versions. The price of these two lenses are also extremely reasonable in comparison, and I think many people will be interested in them.
The biggest concern that many people seemingly had was the autofocus. With such a small widest aperture, people were concerned that cameras would find it difficult to achieve focus. Laing does cover this point, and it seems these new mirrorless cameras from Canon don't have a problem focusing, even at f/11. I also think that when coupled with the EOS R6 and its potential low light performance, these lenses would be great options for many photographers.
