How Does the Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS Compare to the Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM?

Both Sony and Canon make some highly respected supertelephoto zoom lenses that offer versatile focal length ranges and impressive image quality, making them ideal for tackling a wide range of scenarios across multiple genres. This excellent video comparison pits the Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS against the Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM, taking a deep look at what you can expect from both lenses. 

Coming to you from Jan Wegener, this comprehensive video compares the Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS to the Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM. Whereas a decade ago, supertelephoto zoom lenses offered noticeably lower image quality compared to stratospherically priced professional supertelephoto prime lenses, modern versions have advanced by leaps and bounds and now frequently offer sharpness on par with or very close to those primes, with the added versatility of a zoom and much more affordable prices. In addition, the autofocus and high-ISO capabilities of modern camera bodies mean that the narrower apertures are not as much of a hindrance as they used to be. Both lenses look like great options. Check out the video above for Wegener's full thoughts on both lenses.
