Can This Affordable Lens Keep Up With Professional Demands?

100-400mm zoom lenses are some of the most popular out there, offering a versatile focal length range that can tackle a wide range of scenarios including everything from sports to wildlife photography and more. The Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM is one of the more affordable options among such lenses, though it still offers some impressive performance and features, and this excellent video review takes a look at just what you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Jan Wegener, this awesome video review takes a look at the Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM lens. Of course, with relatively narrow maximum apertures, the 100-400mm f/5.6-8 brings with it some limitations compared to higher-level lenses, but with that tradeoff, you get a much cheaper price ($649) and a more portable build. As Wegener details, perhaps the greatest challenge is getting a clean background, but that is a simple limitation of physics, not this specific lens. Otherwise, if you are looking to save a bit of money or avoid lugging a giant lens around, it looks like an excellent choice. Check out the video above for Wegener’s full thoughts on the lens.
