. . . might just be a second copy of the RF 100-400mm. That’s how much I like the lens. And an indication of how often I’ve subjected my current copy to wetter weather than Canon professes it able to handle. Unless . . .
. . . the recently-rumored 150-600mm f/8 comes out first, and it’s not an L lens. Or unless . . .
. . . an f/4 telephoto prime happens to appear on the horizon, but I’ve read no indication of any such lens. Canon seems to like the slower stuff for their long glass for ordinary folks—-like me. The photos I’ve acquired with the slow glass give me no cause to challenge their apparent inclinations.
On another note, with the dry cabinet again saturated with stuff I’m not using, some things have to go. If you’ve read my recent entries, you know what’s first on the list. And with a wish to add a second RF body, it looks as though the Bauhaus CL set will also be heading out, a conclusion not arrived at lightly.
Remaining L glass will be held, at least for a while, in the hope that Sigma will produce a body that’s not dependent on DFD AF. If the alliance hasn’t learned its lesson on that subject by now, its members deserve whatever fate befalls them for continuing to shove DFD down their users’ throats. As someone who initially defended it because of past experience with less-than-ideal implementations of PDAF (hi there, Sony), I now see the “light,” along with more critically-focused shots.
So, hopefully down to two systems in due time, maybe one in the longer run, depending on what the horizon looks like . . .
