The RF 1200mm f/8L IS USM super-telephoto, fixed focal length lens is the longest telephoto lens among Canon's EOS R System line-up, making it a terrific choice for any long-distance application such as outdoor sports, wildlife, news photojournalism, and more where you want to create super-tele impact.
See the difference in the clarity thanks to the L-series high image quality. The large diameter mount and short back focus of the RF lens significantly increases the degree of freedom in lens design compared to conventional EF lenses, achieving excellent contrast and sharpness.
The RF 1200mm f/8L IS USM is an incredible 80% lighter than the EF equivalent, thanks to its new design with optics placed towards the back of the lens.
The RF 1200mm f/8L IS USM features an Optical Image Stabilizer system that provides up to 4 stops of shake correction, delivering consistent and sharp results. This helps provide reliable monopod-mounted - or even hand-held, for some users -performance and clear image detail in low-light situations or at lower ISOs. This applies when capturing both stills and video, for stable shooting, and sharp final imagery.
See further with RF 1.4x and RF 2x extenders, and reach up to 2400mm in zoom. This allows you to utilise the current 1200mm lens without having to carry around multiple super zoom lenses, whilst also capturing sharp telephoto images.
The RF 1200mm f/8 L IS USM features a dust and drip resistant construction, allowing you to photograph in most weather situations. The vibration and shock resistant build also allows for peace of mind when travelling and moving equipment from location to location.
