A 70-200mm f/2.8 lens is one of the most versatile and popular options out there, but not everyone needs that f/2.8 aperture or wants to spend that kind of money. A 70-200mm f/4 lens offers the same versatility in a smaller and more affordable package, making it a great alternative for a lot of different photographers and filmmakers. This great video review takes a look at Canon's mirrorless option, the RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens.
Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens. Though f/2.8 is often thought of the professional standard and is certainly a necessity for certain genres like wedding photography, on the other hand, there are plenty of scenarios for which the focal length versatility of the lens is desirable, but the extra stop is not needed, such as landscape photography (in fact, the extra weight may be considered a con there). At over $1,000 less and almost a pound lighter than the f/2.8 version, the RF 70-200mm f/4L looks like a fantastic alternative, particularly given its strong performance and great image quality. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Frost.
