I have a Canon EOS 5D SR camera. Will this lens go with my camera?
Asked by: Susi
This lens unfortunately does not fit your EOS 5D SR camera. Your 5D uses the EF moniker lenses, while this lens here is a RF lens designed for Canon Full Frame Mirrorless cameras only.

What type of epoxy to use to permanently close the hood door for filters? Mine keeps opening and I don't use it
Asked by: Cathy
I would not recommend any epoxy for the hood at it could be permanent. If you start using a polarizer or variable ND, you might be glad for the door. I would recommend a small piece of tape or a rubber band.

Hello, I am interested in the weight difference ...

Hello, I am interested in the weight difference between 100-400 L IS II and 100-500 RF. Normally, "larger" lenses are heavier than shorter ones?
Asked by: Marek
The 100-400 is an EF lens. The 100-500 is a RF lens made for Canons mirrorless cameras like the R5 just released. There is not an adaptor to fit the new RF lenses to Canons DSLRs, 5D, 1D etc. They are generally smaller and lighter and more expensive! There is an adaptor to fit EF lenses on the some of the mirrorless cameras. Do your research and read carefully or ask your friendly B&H service person.
