First images with my new Canon lens – Canon RF 70-200mm f4 L IS USM

It wasn’t the best situation to try out my new lens for my Canon EOS R but I just had to give it a go.

A splash of color on a rather dull afternoon. 151mm at f6.3 1/200 ISO 5000 (no crop)

Maidenhair ferns. 200mm at f4.0 1/200 ISO 3200 (no crop)

Backyard habitat. 200mm at f4.0 1/200 ISO 2500 (no crop)

Japanese garden. 141mm at f8.0 1/200 ISO 6400 (no crop)

Although this was just a quick test of the lens in less than ideal shooting conditions the lens performed just as I expected. It is after all a quality Canon lens with the latest technology and features. Most of these images were shot through my horribly dirty outside windows so maybe not as sharp as they could be – not to mention the ISOs were a tad higher than what I typically shoot at. I’ve got my fingers crossed for a sunny day as lately it’s been rather gray, windy, wet, and cold – not typical North Florida weather even in the winter.
