The RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM has been designed to achieve the much loved 70-200mm zoom range in just 146mm (at its shortest length). This makes the lens approximately 27% shorter and 28% lighter than it's EF equivalent. An essential workhorse lens, this lens is perfect for travel, wildlife, news and sport.
Thanks to the large-diameter RF mount and short back focus design and incredibly bright f/2.8 maximum aperture- that stays constant throughout the zoom- the RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM offers great creative opportunities and stunning image quality, even in low light. The lens is engineered to deliver sharp images with beautiful background blur.
The RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM features a lens control ring for customisable control over shutter speed, ISO or exposure compensation. The easy-to-identify textured surface gives you tangible feedback to adjust while looking through the viewfinder and concentrating on your subject.
Shoot with confidence even when light levels drop. The RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM is designed to work in conjunction with an EOS R series camera, with both the camera and the lens sharing data to reduce camera-shake blur. With up to 5 stops of Image Stabilization, it delivers impressively clear results when shooting handheld.
