We already reported that the new Canon EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM lens will NOT be an “L” lens, but has great optics and build quality, as to not “step on” the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens ($1,999), and it will have the competitive price to compete with both Sigma and Tamron.
Speaking of the super telephoto zoom lens segment, it has traditionally been dominated by third party manufacturers with Sigma and Tamron: Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 sports lens ($1,799, $200 off), Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Contemporary ($989), Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 G2 ($1,399), Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 lens ($869). All these 150-600mm lenses are selling really well. So, Canon does need a slower 600mm super telephoto zoom lens in their lineup.
As of today in mirrorless wars, we might never see such a lens for the EF mount, instead Canon could release it for RF mount. We guess that we’ll see the RF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM Lens in the near future.
