Push the limits of performance

The RF 800mm F5.6L IS USM is built to impress. From a fast F5.6 aperture and 4.5-stop Image Stabilizer* for effortless control to Fluorite, UD and Super UD lens elements with advanced coatings, it sets new standards in optical excellence.

* In combination with in-body Image Stabilisation.

Control with confidence

This is Canon’s lightest and shortest 800mm L-series lens yet, made possible by an advanced optical design. Optimised weight distribution inspires confidence while full-time manual focus is always there for precise AF control.

Tough and responsive, for any assignment

L-series design puts priority on usability. A lightweight magnesium alloy casing with heat insulating paint protects the optics inside while dust and moisture is repelled by Fluorine on the outer elements.

Built for the EOS R-series

The RF 800mm F5.6L IS USM sits at the top of the Canon lens range. An aperture mechanism with 1/8th stop increments and a minimum focus distance of 2.6m bring superior shooting flexibility, while the IS system works with in body IS for even better stability.
