Our pals at Lensrentals.com have accomplished what quite a lot of us needed to see accomplished, and that’s a teardown of the model new Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM.
There are a few of you who’re going to scream about the way you need steel lenses. OK, Boomer, go get you a steel lens and present us how robust you might be. On each different 70-200mm lenses we’ve disassembled, there are a number of steel components that we will bend with our fingers. There’s not a rattling factor we will bend with our fingers on this dangerous boy. This goes to carry up higher than a steel lens, it’s in all probability sturdier, and it weighs far much less.
I haven’t examined it optically. I haven’t even shot with it. But after trying inside it, I would like it. The engineering in right here is pure artwork. And even I, the one that mocks development at any likelihood I get, can’t discover something to complain about. Check out the full teardown
It appears to be like like Canon has made one other gem of a lens construction-wise, however we’ll wait to see in the event that they’ve additionally hit it out of the park optically.
