Are Canon’s Unique 600mm f/11 and 800mm f/11 Lenses Worth Buying?

Canon’s RF 600mm f/11 IS STM and RF 800mm f/11 IS STM lenses caused a bit of a stir when they were announced, as they offered ultra-long telephoto reach at a very affordable price, but also raised eyebrows with their very narrow maximum apertures. So, how do these unique lenses hold up in practice? This great video review takes a look at what you can expect. 

Coming to you from Gordon Laing, this excellent video review takes a look at the Canon RF 600mm f/11 IS STM and RF 800mm f/11 IS STM lenses. Both these lenses caused quite a stir when they were released, as they are quite unlike anything we have seen from a major manufacturer in recent years. Personally, I think they are great, as they open a new and affordable cost level in a focal length range that is traditionally populated by stratospherically priced lenses. This makes them a fantastic option for any photographer who does not want to spend five figures on such a lens or who wants to carry a long lens for an occasional supertelephoto shot without sacrificing their back or their wallet. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Laing.
