I have my eye on the 100-500. The price is attractive. If the quality is near that of the 100-400 it will be a good seller.

I was looking at the spec for the RF600, RF800. These are lightweight!

Lightweight - the RF600mm weighs approximately 2.05lb and the RF800mm weighs approximately 2.78lb, respectively
Compact size, RF600mm measures approximately 7.85inch and RF800mm with measures approximately 11.09inch when retracted, respectively
Fixed f/11 aperture
Optical image stabilization of five stops* for the RF600mm and four stops* for the RF800mm of Shake Correction
Lead screw-type STM enables smooth auto focusing for still-image and video shooting
Customizable control ring that allows photographers to adjust exposure compensation, shutter speed, aperture or ISO
12-pin Communication System
Compatible with the new 1.4x and 2x RF lens extenders

The F/11 kills it for me. I would rather use a Sigma 150-600 and have the versatility and its a hell of a lot cheaper

Sigmas 150-600 is a killer lens

No, the RF 600 is $200 less expensive than the Sigma 150-600 C, and about half the weight.

Yes, the RF 600 is cheaper and lighter than the Sigma 150-600C, but yes, the RF f/11 kills it for me, too.

Not sure if f11 will kill it for me either. But I shoot air shows in good light, so it may work out well.

I'll rent first before I buy.

I didn’t follow very much before this release but on other forums there were people who weren’t very confident so I was curious to see how this would play out.

Some people will never be happy. In all honesty what a huge leap forward for Cannon and the consumer. People have been asking for these camera builds for years and now its here some are only criticizing, again.

If you don't like them, have noting god to say or don't want them fine, don't get one, go to Sony or Nikon or whoever else you think is better.

The R5 also has a lot more features than the R6, so that's what I will getting and I will be very happy for many years to come.

Cheers.
