Get up close and personal with your subjects

Fill the frame with faraway detail thanks to this stunning 800mm super-telephoto lens. Designed for EOS R-series cameras, this lens is made for wildlife and sports photographers seeking an uncompromised performance in all conditions.

  • The high quality edge

    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.

  • Lighter than its EF equivalent

    The RF 800mm f/5.6 L IS USM is approximately 30% lighter than the EF equivalent, thanks to its new design with optics placed towards the back of the lens.

Steady shots hand-held or in low light

The RF 1200mm f/8 L 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.

  • Extender Compatibility

    See further with RF 1.4x and RF 2x extenders, and reach up to 1600mm in zoom. This allows you to utilise the current 800mm lens without having to carry around multiple super zoom lenses, whilst also capturing sharp telephoto images.

  • Professional Build

    The RF 800mm f/5.6 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.
