The 5.5-stop in built Image Stabilizer within the lens reduces camera shake and allows you to take crisp images with hand-held shooting, even at 400mm.
Weighing approximately 635g, the RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM is a lightweight lens that allows you to take high quality images handheld without a tripod. The lens size is comparable to a 350ml tumbler, making storing and travelling with the lens a breeze.
