There have been several reports of Canon not properly building both the new 1200mm and 800mm lenses by just adding the equivalent of an internal lens extender. Does anyone know anything about these claims? I have noticed that the 800m appears to have been pulled off the market. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks

The Canon RF 1200mm f/8 L IS USM Lens and the Canon RF 800mm f/11 IS STM Lens from the reports we have seen do give the lenses praise in optical quality. They are not the best for low light shooting but are very good.
