Lock on to distant subjects with ease and put them right in the centre of your frame with this stunning RF-series super telephoto lens. With a powerful 800mm reach, a 4.5-stop¹ Optical Image Stabiliser and an impressive f/5.6 maximum aperture along with lightweight and precise handling, it is a superb wildlife photography lens and also ideal for sports and faraway subjects. Because it’s a professional telephoto, it’s engineered to rigorous high standards and also offers customisable focus settings plus an aperture mechanism with 1/8th stop increments for precise exposure control. A minimum focus distance of 2.6 m brings superior shooting flexibility, too, while the IS system works with in-body IS on compatible EOS R-series cameras for even better stability.


  • From a fast f/5.6 aperture and 4.5-stop Image Stabilizer to Fluorite, UD and Super UD lens elements with advanced coatings, the RF 800mm F5.6L IS USM sets new standards in optical excellence
  • An ideal sports photography lens, it is equally versatile as a lens for bird photography, general wildlife and capturing distant subjects discretely
  • This is Canon’s lightest and shortest 800mm L-series lens yet. Optimised weight distribution inspires confidence while full-time manual focus is always there for precise AF control
  • 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
  • An aperture mechanism with 1/8th stop increments and a minimum focus distance of 2.6 m bring superior shooting flexibility, while the IS system works with in-body IS for even better stability
  • A host of custom options with two focus pre-sets and a customisable AF stop button makes this lens supremely adaptable, plus it’s fully compatible with RF extenders for even great shooting power
