Looks like this lens is shipping out. Someone has to start this thread..

A lot of folks in the U.S. and Canada will have the new Canon RF100-400mm in the next few days. Please post you images taken with the lens.

Thanks!

While I can appreciate anticipating photos from newly released gear, I guess I'm a bit old-fashioned in that I think that someone that starts an image thread should have some images to contribute. Maybe it's just me...

Thanks. Make sense and I thought about it but that's not the case in few of the recent images thread. Examples

I am still on the fence and in the meanwhile I ll let others who got the lens post images... and help me and other decide
. I hope that's fine

Embedding a seagull from the other thread:



And here's a typical Pacific Northwest fall scene as well. In case it's not obvious from the EXIF this image was taken with the extender and the lens at 100mm something you can't do with the 100-500.






Boats, trees, sky

OK, but why would you use an extender at 100 mm on a 100-400 instead of just the lens itself at 140mm? Or, with respect to the 100-500, there have been a lot of complaints about not being able to use an extender between 100 and 300mm - which would be the FOV equivalent of 140 - 420mm, well within the natural range of the 100-500 - this seems so obvious I wonder if I'm missing something. It surely can't be for improved image quality . . .

I think you've missed what the actual problem is. The problem is that the lens HAS to be zoomed out to 300mm (on the 100-500) when using the TC, which almost doubles its length (vs packed without tc). Meaning for many backpacks you will always have to detach the 1.4x before packing it away as it will no longer fit.

I am lucky to have an EF 100-400L with 2x Extender III on my R6.
Focuses quickly and (IB)IS works quickly, till 1/20 sec handheld at 800mm eq.
On the 6D is only focuses slowly in live view mode.

You're right that I missed what the actual problem is. It never occurred to me that it was a problem worth complaining about. I hope that's the least of the problems with it and can't imagine any that would be a lesser inconvenience, if even that.

Agree, it is not a problem for the majority of photographers that don't carry their gear in backpacks or bags. Take the TC and/or hood off before putting in a pack. A real chore that photographers have been doing for years with 500 & 600 f4's.

I would think the bigger problem is losing that part of the zoom range when the TC is on. So no TC you've got 100-500. With the 1.4x, instead of a 140-700, you are limited to a 420-700 (lens can't come in past the 300mm position).

Still, having finally seen one in person, it is so compact for a lens with that reach. Seems like a reasonable tradeoff to me.

No, it is even less of a problem since the reason you are putting the TC on is to get greater reach than 500mm.

Found a bunch of backlit ducks and kept trying to get something from it. Mostly silhouette but figured worth posting.

you're right, new gear enthusiasm. Once we get some decent weather here I will post some better shots.

I like the ducks. Fun to see the differing silhouettes of your nearctic Aythya-species. Good to see that the RF 100-400 performs well enough.

Im apparently not in agreement with Imagemaster tonight, as I would/will miss the 140-420mm with the 100-500 x1,4. Im in no hurry to get the RF 1,4x of that reason (whenever the 100-500 arrives). When the goodness of the EF100-400LIS2 was evident I exchanged it for my 400/5.6. Sometimes you got one duck, sometimes 20000 in front of you. The lack of 100-420 will/would be burning!

Get out your shotgun Tony! Here's 2 heavily cropped duck eyes, as a sharpness experiment.

First one is with the 800 f/11 second one is with the RF100-400 wide open at f/8
