Canon really has fought back at the claim that mirrorless lenses are too big with this one. They’ve just announced their new RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens and it’s ridiculously small, measuring a mere 119mm at its shortest length. It’s almost a third shorter than its EF mount equivalent, as well as being lighter. And it can be locked at its short 70mm end for travel and storage.
It’s not all rainbows and sunshine, though. Unlike its faster RF 70-200mm f/2.8L sibling, the RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM does not have a tripod collar and it doesn’t apparently support Canon’s recently released RF teleconverters. Still, if you’re always handheld and hadn’t planned to use a TC, you’re good to go.
