The Canon RF 70-200 2.8L IS completes Canon’s RF Hebrew Trinity. This version is smaller, more compact and lighter than previous models. I love how small it is and that it doesn’t have to lay on it’s side to fit in my roller bags. But that smaller more compact size comes with a trade off. That trade off is the barrel now extends opposed to being internal zooming. Is this a HUGE deal…not really, it’s just different than before and has left some people worrying how it will hold up over time.
I found this to be a super fast, super sharp zoom lens on the EOS R. One of the first things I noticed is it takes more of a twist to zoom from 70-200 when compared to older 70-200’s. That means instead of doing a single twist, I need to do something like a twist and a half. This is going to take some time getting used to and might lead to missing a shot here and there.
At the end of the day can I recommend this lens? YES, 100% YES! I recommend all high end RF glass that Canon is making. Now if they could get out a few more Pro bodies, I think people will be happy.
