The 2 strangest lenses Canon is reportedly going to launch on Thursday are the RF 600mm f/11 and the RF 800mm f/11. Now, now we have our first leaked photographs to indicate us why precisely Canon has determined to make these lenses so gradual. As anticipated: they’re extremely small and hand-holdable.
The leaked photographs come from the ever-reliable Nokishita, who posted specs for the lenses alongside a few blurry product pictures and some high-res product photos of the lenses in use. It appears they’re collapsible, and use a trombone-style extending mechanism for once you’re truly capturing.
Right here’s a look at the product pictures, adopted by the photographs of the lenses truly getting used:
According to Nokishita, each lenses function a DO aspect (to maintain the dimensions down), and between 4 and 5 stops of picture stabilization. The 800mm lens is made up of 11 parts in eight teams for a complete weight of simply 1260g, whereas the 600mm is made up of 10 parts in 7 teams and weighs simply 930g. The 600mm lens shall be 199.5mm (7.eight inches) lengthy when retracted and 269.5mm (10.6 inches) when prolonged for capturing; the 800mm shall be 281mm (11 inches) when retracted and 351.8mm (13.eight inches) when capturing.
These two merchandise will undoubtedly be two of probably the most debated releases of the week. What do you assume? Is Canon making the precise determination releasing two f/11 full-frame super-telephoto lenses which are sufficiently small to comfortably hand-hold, or are the lenses just too gradual to make use of in most real-world circumstances?
Tell us within the feedback, and keep tuned for the official announcement on July ninth at 8am ET.
