  • Roman

    As for a decent TV, it’s very compact.

    • Ivan

      Compact - because the aperture is low. If it were high, then the diameter would increase noticeably.

      • Roman

        Thanks, Cap!

        Let's just say that the diameter of the front element would increase noticeably.

        But on the whole, I’m glad that the processing of glass for mirrorless glasses has finally begun to use a short working length and create truly compact lenses. In general, thanks to the increased ISO, and even the stub already, the 7.1 aperture does not look intimidating.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          nothing, nothing, two lenses under Canon RF with F / 11 will soon show:
          Canon RF 600mm f / 11 DO IS STM
          Canon RF 800mm f / 11 DO IS STM

          • Roman

            Well, they shot at 1000/10. And here also with a stub.

            Thanks to DO, they will reduce the length to about 40 cm, and thanks to f / 11 they will fit into a 77 mm filter. The main thing is that Canon is so confident in their cameras that they will shoot on f / 11. Well done.

            In general, it's good that all the new glasses are not alterations of already sold EF, but some fundamentally new solutions. Owners of their expensive Big White Lenses are unlikely to run to change them to RF-versions, it will be cheaper to equip each one for convenience with an adapter (especially an adapter with filters). But the available 800 mm. Interesting.

        • Michael

          I wonder where? The mirror analogue is exactly the same

  • Arkady

    When you pick up the new Sigma 100-4m ​​F5-6.3 DG OS HSM for the first time, you feel the fear that it will turn out to be too dark for many scenes. Looking ahead, I’ll say that, thanks to the built-in optical stabilizer, the fear did not come true. The acronym OS (Optical Stabilizer) stands in the name for a reason.

  • Koba

    The other day it was tested by Christopher Frost and this lens showed very high optical characteristics, and aft focus worked better than the original lens for $ 2500, and the stabilizer turned out to be excellent. In a word, apparently a very successful lens was finally created by Sigma.
