Canon RF 100-500 Lens Compared to EF 100-400 Lens with Cameras

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.
