Designed as a lightweight and affordable extreme telephoto prime for Canon RF-mount shooters, the Canon RF 600mm F11 IS STM is a versatile lens for casual wildlife and general photography. If 600mm isn’t enough for you, it can be paired with Canon’s new 2X extender for RF to become a very portable (and very slow) 1200mm F22. While not up to the same optical standard as Canon’s more expensive fast sports primes, we’re pretty impressed by what this budget tele can do.
Birds, spiders, cats, squirrels, planes, boats, distant mountains and (naturally) the moon. These are just a few of the things that we pointed the Canon RF 600mm F11 IS STM at this weekend, and you can take a closer look in our sample gallery, which includes several images taken with the new 2X converter.

The Sony a7S III is a 12MP full-frame camera primarily designed with video in mind. We take a look beyond the specs to see what it offers to filmmakers.
The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III is our favorite Micro Four Thirds camera for stills shooters to date. It jam-packs plenty of cool/useful features into a small, tough-built package that’s a pleasure to shoot with and thus, has earned our silver award.
