The Canon RF 100-300mm f/2.8 L IS USM and Sony FE 300mm f/2.8 GM OSS are two of the most extreme new lenses on the market right now, meant to help professional sports, wildlife, and bird photographers capture stunning images no matter how demanding the conditions. How do these two top-shelf options compare? This excellent video comparison puts them both to the test.
Coming to you from Jared Polin, this great video review compares the Canon RF 100-300mm f/2.8 L IS USM and Sony FE 300mm f/2.8 GM OSS lenses. Of course, the major advantage of Canon's lens is that zoom range, particularly in a focal length range traditionally dominated by prime lenses if one wants an f/2.8 aperture. But with that extra versatility comes a much higher price than Sony's offering and almost double the weight, meaning you will need to think carefully about both your bank account and your back before picking one up. And the Sony is no slouch either, offering stunning image quality and autofocus performance in a ridiculously small package for a 300mm f/2.8 lens. It sure seems like both lenses are world-class performers; it really comes down to the balance of price, weight, and versatility that is best for you. Check out the video above for Polin's full thoughts.
