Is it just me or do these look like the 400 f/2.8 and 600 f/4 with built-in 2x converters and EF adapters?


Yes...I think they more look like a 600/4 with a 1.4 or a 2.0...more so than a 400 with 2.0 if you compare the designs. The 1200 for sure looks like a 600/4 with just extra length of ~ a 2xTC on the end.

And I guess the silver end (which is essentially an EF-RF adapter spacer) is here to stay as a signature design cue for the RF superteles.


After seeing this release leaked doc and looking at the 600 and 400... looks like it is a re-hashing of the to EF/RF lenses with corrected optics similar to a 2x.

Thanks...hadn't seen that document yet.

Yeah that sort of confirms these are 600 and 400 lenses with some added optics (similar to 2xTCs) tacked on the ends. Not sure how they kept the 1200 weight identical to the 600 with that extension but pretty nice that they did.
