The day before my arrival, still late summer, Rocky Mountain National Park received a wintry weather blast that included a snowstorm. With a clearing storm forecasted for the next morning, heading to a high elevation mountain lake for a dramatic landscape image seemed the right plan. That excitement ended abruptly. Instead of an amazing set of landscape images, I was delivered dense cloud cover, continuous snow, and brutal winds.
 
However, the sunset conditions easily made up for the AM troubles. The wind became still, and the remaining clouds took on great color.
 
There are times in the field when you know that you are capturing an image that you will be excited about. This was one of those times. I quickly shot a variety of images from my rock perch, capturing bracketed exposures, varying the focal length, and fine-tuning the composition. This selected image was a single exposure captured at an extremely wide 12mm focal length, enabling the large rocks on the lower right side of the frame to be included along with the high clouds and their reflections. A fully-level camera keeps especially the trees on the left side of the frame straight.
 
What do I like least about this composition? The wide-angle focal length makes the distant mountain appear small in relation to the foreground. I decided that there was enough valuable supporting detail in the frame to offset that deficit (and I zoomed in to capture that image also).
 
Unknown to me this evening was that the snowstorm had cleaned the air of wildfire smoke and that this would be the last time I would see an even marginally photogenic sunrise or sunset for the duration of my time in Colorado.

I'll start by saying, "in-depth" is relative in this case. The Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM Lens and Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens are two of the best telephoto zoom lenses ever made. As long as the lens will mount on your camera (the RF lens requires a Canon EOS R-series camera), there is no bad choice to be made here. Overall, these lenses are similar in so many regards that it is a stretch to create an "in-depth" comparison.
 
Let's start by looking at the name. Obvious is that the RF lens has a considerably longer focal length range. The 400mm vs. 500mm difference is illustrated in the RF 100-500mm Lens review. The 500mm focal length is very noticeably longer than the 400mm focal length, and I can think of no reason to not prefer the longer range. That is, no reason as long as the maximum aperture remains similar at 400mm.
 
We know from the name that the RF 100-500's max aperture is narrower at the 500mm end, and the unusually narrow to-f/7.1 spec gives us pause. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF system in Canon's R-series cameras autofocus lenses with narrow apertures very adequately, making very narrow openings quite usable, but we still want to know if the aperture opening size was being sacrificed at the 400mm focal length to keep this lens compact and light.
 
What is the Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM Lens's maximum aperture opening at 400mm? The early answers were:
 
Answer 1: When the camera is set to 1/3-stop increments, the maximum 400mm aperture reported to the camera is rounded to f/6.3.
 
Answer 2: When the camera is set to 1/2-stop increments, the maximum 400mm aperture reported to the camera is rounded to f/5.6.
 
While the max aperture does not change in these modes, the rounding of the actual opening size does, and the true aperture is likely between these two numbers, holds for only a short range of focal lengths, and the 1/3-stop difference in noise made visible by an offsetting 1/3-stop ISO change will matter to few. For the RF lens, Adobe software says that 400mm is f/6.2 (and that 500mm is 7.0).
 
Here is a comparative look at the max aperture step-down by focal length for these two lenses:

Modelf/4.5f/5.0f/5.6f/6.3f/7.1
Canon EF 100-400mm L IS II100-134mm135-311mm312-400mm  
Canon RF 100-500mm L IS100-150mm151-253mm254-362mm363-471mm472-500mm

While the RF 100-500 holds f/4.5 modestly deeper into the focal length range, the EF 100-400 L II holds a modest advantage at the longer focal lengths. Still, the differences are minor.
 
Back to the focal length range available: both lenses accept extenders, enabling the native focal length range to be significantly lengthened. Noteworthy is that the RF lens will not zoom wider than the marked 300mm native focal length while an extender is mounted. Extenders are primarily used for obtaining a focal length not native to the lens, meaning the 300mm wide end limitation is not important. The RF 100-500 better avoids the need for extender use, but being able to zoom out is sometimes helpful when an extender is mounted, such as when finding a subject in the viewfinder, and being able to fully zoom out makes the lens significantly more compact. Very noticeable is that the 100-500 range can be extended substantially longer than the 100-400mm range, up to 1000mm vs. 800mm. The max aperture of 500mm with extenders becomes rather narrow, though as we just looked at, the difference at the equalized 400mm focal length is minor.
 
Let's look at the image quality comparison next. The RF lens has less lateral CA in the periphery at 100mm and might be slightly sharper at this focal length at f/4.5. That is the only even somewhat noteworthy difference I see in the shared focal length range. Comparing the image quality from these two lenses at f/8 will hurt your eyes.
 
Of high interest to many of us is the RF 100-500mm lens at 500mm vs. EF 100-400mm with 1.4x at 560mm comparison. In this comparison, the RF lens is sharper, especially in the center of the frame. The EF lens leapfrogs the RF lens focal length, but the RF lens has a wider aperture. Mount 1.4x extenders behind both lenses and the EF lens appears to hold a very slight edge. Keep in mind that the comparison is now 700mm f/10 vs. 560mm f/8, not especially apples-to-apples. I'm not a fan of the 2x extender behind either of these lenses, but they perform very similarly in the 1000mm vs. 800mm comparison.
 
The RF lens shows fewer flare effects in our testing (having one less lens element is likely advantageous) and has modestly more peripheral shading with a wide-open aperture at 100 and 200mm.
 
Looking at specs and measurements, the Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM Lens vs. Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens comparison shows the RF lens slightly longer and noticeably lighter.
 
As illustrated in the image included with this article, today's length equation is:
 
EOS R5 + Canon RF 100-500mm L IS Lens = Canon EOS 5Ds R + Canon EF 100-400mm L IS II Lens
 
The EOS R5's extended viewfinder rises modestly higher than the 5Ds R's viewfinder, but this increase is advantageous in use.
 
Let's change the RF vs. EF equation to weights:
 
In ounces: (26.0 + 48.2) - (32.8 + 56.1) = 74.2 - 88.9 = -14.7 oz
 
In grams: (738 + 1,365) - (930 + 1,590) = 2,103 - 2,520 = -417g
 
Overall, the RF lens and R camera combination gives us an additional 100mm of focal length range in a similar-sized package that weighs nearly a pound (over .4 kg) less. Primarily, this line summarizes the significant differences between these lenses.
 
The RF lens has a control ring, providing additional functionality. The EF lens requires a Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS R to mount on an R-series camera, and an adapter with a control ring is available to equalize this difference. With the RF lens control ring positioned where the EF lens's switches are located, the RF lens switches required a move and are now located between the zoom torque adjustment ring and the focus ring. The RF lens focus ring and zoom rings are modestly smaller in length, and the focus distance window is omitted on RF lenses.
 
The EF lens tripod foot is removable (and has a lower profile), while the RF lens's entire tripod ring is removable. I prefer the RF design for stability.
 
The RF lens has a slightly higher maximum magnification (0.33x vs. 0.31x), but both lenses have a great capability in this regard. The RF lens's image stabilization system is rated at 5-stops vs. the EF lens's 4-stop rating.
 
The RF lens paint color is whiter (the new white) than the EF lens's color, and RF lens hood is primarily white, while the EF lens hood is black. The RF lens zoom torque adjustment ring is now fully ribbed, and the RF lens barrel holds a more constant diameter over its length. Both lenses are well-built and fast-focusing.
 
The RF lens costs more, but neither lens is inexpensive. If paying this much, the difference is relatively small. Factor in the cost for an adapter for the EF lens to mount on an R-series camera, and the net difference is even less.

Canon U.S.A. and ASMP Partnering to Produce a Series of Business Webinars
 
Canon U.S.A. is excited to announce a partnership with the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) to produce a series of business webinars available to ASMP members. Many visual creators have the talent and experience to create magnificent work, but are looking for training and guidance to develop stronger business skills to get their work noticed. Business development has become more of a challenge during the era of COVID-19, where networking opportunities are limited. With that in mind, the new virtual seminars are designed to provide members with the vital tools to help maintain and even build their businesses, despite current complications.
 
Canon and ASMP both feel strongly about supporting the business of photographers. ASMP is the leader in promoting photographers' rights, providing education in better business practices, producing business publications for photographers, and helping to connect clients with professional photographers. Canon values the work that photographers do and is honored to be part of the process through which creators impact our culture. The natural combination of these missions will hopefully provide photographers with a more robust set of tools to build their careers.
 
"Canon traces its roots to 1933 and has been serving photographers ever since at the cutting-edge where technology and art intersect. We're proud to be a part of this journey with them, partnering to serve photographers in innovative ways during this time of big changes in our industry and our world," said ASMP Chief Executive Officer James Edmund Datri.
 
"Canon cameras are only as strong as the professionals who utilize them. We can create the technological advances, but it is the skill of the people behind the lens that creates the images that have changed the world. ASMP has been a vital piece of the photography profession since its founding in 1944, helping to guide those skilled artists through the gauntlet of the business world. As the world continues to evolve at an exponential pace, this partnership is a logical fit that benefits both of our organizations and the photography industry as a whole," said Tatsuro "Tony" Kano, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Canon U.S.A.'s Imaging Technologies & Communications Group.

Is the Canon EOS R5 a good wildlife camera? Absolutely.
 
I had the opportunity to select any camera available for an over-two-week wildlife photo trip. My choice? The pair of Canon EOS R5 bodies already in my kit, and I am left extremely impressed as I review the images from this trip.
 
Here are 7 reasons why I find the Canon EOS R5 to be the ultimate wildlife camera:
 
1. The AF System Rocks, Especially the Animal Eye AF Feature
 
Most notably, the eye-in-focus rate from the EOS R5 was considerably higher than my experience with any camera prior. Keeping a wildlife subject's eye in focus is a critical challenge of wildlife photography, and keeping the ideal focus point on a wildlife subject's eye is a key to that challenge. When a bird or animal turns its head, the ideal composition typically changes just as fast as the head turned, often requiring the AF point to be moved completely across the frame. Swimming ducks can change directions almost instantly. Too often, the subject changes position again before the AF point is in the required new position. Hence, the shots are missed.
 
In a large percentage of scenarios, the R5's animal eye AF system eliminates the AF point challenge, permitting the photographer to concentrate on proper scene framing with the eye being tracked throughout nearly the entire frame. I have photographed a variety of birds and animals with the R5, including whitetail and mule deer, elk, moose, coyote, ground squirrels, turkeys (ever try to focus on a feeding turkey's head?), green herons, magpies, whistling swans, frogs, and even stuffed animals. The only subject in that list to confound the R5's animal eye AF enough for me to not trust using it nearly 100% of the time was the moose, and with the dark hair surrounding that animal's eye, it is hard to fault the R5 for that one.
 
Even when not using eye AF, this camera's AI Servo AF tracked moving subjects very accurately
 
2. The Frame Rate is Fast
 
Animals move, and capturing the ideal body, leg, and wing position can be critical. The challenge is even greater when multiple subjects are in the frame. Capturing the movement sequence can also be desired. Even when the subjects are standing still (or bedded), there can still be movement in the frame. A drip of water falling from a duck's bill can make the difference between a good shot and a great shot. A moose's big eyebrow lifting even slightly can allow a catchlight or a larger catchlight, increasing the value of the image. If the eye goes closed during a blink (I'm amazed at my ability to time a single shot with a bird closing its necessitating membrane), the image is not likely as attractive to me as an alert, open eye. A fast frame rate can catch the pinnacle point in time.
 
Fully supporting the fast frame write is the deep buffer coupled with the fast card write speed. Even when writing to SD cards, I barely reached the buffer full state only once.
 
3. The EVF is Excellent with Lack of Blackout
 
When shooting in continuous mode, electronic viewfinders typically freeze or blackout while each frame is being captured, and it is very difficult to track a moving subject without being able to see it. The R5 does not have that problem. In addition, the resolution of this EVF is high enough to be able to see when a catchlight appears in the animal's eye along with other important details.
 
4. The Image Quality is Excellent, Ultra-High Resolution Included
 
The R5 delivers crisp, high-resolution image quality that is ready to be printed large, and when focal length limited in the field, the EOS R5 provides adequate resolution to crop deeply.
 
5. The Grip is Adequately-Sized and Comfortable
 
Spending many hours a day with the camera in hand was not unusual on this trip, and having a significantly-sized, expensive lens hanging from it was the norm. A sore hand developing could cause problems for the remaining days, and a grip slip could spell doom for especially the lens, a big problem when a replacement is not readily available. I find the R5 grip to be comfortable and sure.
 
6. The Weather Sealing and Build Quality can Save the Day
 
While the R5 is not built up to the standard of Canon's 1-series cameras, it is solidly built with good weather sealing. The weather is not controllable, and when photographing wildlife, unfavorable conditions are not uncommon. I photographed in a snowstorm in CO, and while photographing moose in Alaska, it was raining lightly nearly the entire time. Sometimes I used a rain cover in AK, but not always.
 
That this camera is relatively light is a definite bonus when it is being carried for many hours and many miles.
 
7. The Controls are Intuitive and Customizable
 
The faster I can adjust the camera settings that are important to me, the faster I can get back in the game. The set of controls provided on the R5 are just right for changing the important wildlife photography-related settings, especially with the M-Fn button programmed to provide the ideal subset of options.
 
 
I was fortunate to spend nearly 7 hours with the Rocky Mountain National Park bull elk in the image accompanying this post. Few elk have antlers that are larger, more symmetrical, and more perfectly shaped than his set. My time with this brute included the dreaded mid-day hours where harsh shadows and heat waves tend to rule. Amazingly, the edge of a large cloud remained still, blocking the sun during nearly this entire time. The provided light was bright and soft while the heatwave issue was significantly reduced. In this case, the denser portion of the cloud darkened the background, providing a high contrast that, along with the shallow depth of field from the Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM Lens, makes the subject stand out.
 
I prefer to photograph wildlife at their level and often like to be even lowered than eye level to give them a larger appearance (and increase the odds of a catchlight appearing). The low flora in this meadow accommodated a squatted shooting level nicely.
 
Is the R5's battery life adequate? The pair of Canon LP-E6NH packs in the Canon BG-R10 Battery Grip delivered 4,300 images before giving up on this day. It is easy to add another battery or two to a pocket if this volume is not adequate for your needs.
 
How do EF lenses perform on the Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS R? After mounting the adapter, I forgot that it was there. The lens seemed normal during use, and the R5 delivered a considerably higher in-focus rate than I am used to.

The couple recently authored the coffee table book, “Glory” which brings to life past, present, and future visions of black culture. With more than eleven years of working with hundreds of children, families, and brands, they specialize in child and lifestyle photography while incorporating authentic visual storytelling.

  • Thoughts on Photography: “As artists, we are constantly responding to the world around us. We don't want to just question traditional standards of beauty - we want to shatter them.”

  • Thoughts on Photography: “What I love the most about photography is the moment in time you capture that will never happen again. It’s magic. I also believe you are only as good as your subject so I’m so honored when people allow me to take their photograph. I see pictures everywhere I look. Photography is in my blood, which means I haven’t really worked a single day in 25 years.”
