Telephoto Lenses

Telephoto lenses get you closer to your subject, a great solution for photography when physical restraints prevent you from getting nearer. At Canon, we have a wide range of telephoto lenses that can capture what the eye can barely see.

RF 200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM Lens is our full frame super telephoto zoom lens for EOS R System cameras. The 200-800mm focal length is the longest reaching telephoto zoom lens for the RF mount, ideal for shooting nature and wildlife.

Popular for a wide range of photography genres, our range of Canon telephoto lenses includes options for beginners through to professionals.

A telephoto lens makes subjects appear closer than they actually are, which is great for when you can’t get close to your subject. This has an artistic purpose as well as a usability one, as it makes the seperation between subject and background clearer.

A Canon telephoto lens offers the creativity you expect from modern telephoto lenses, with wide maximum apertures allowing for daytime through to low-light use, perfect for wildlife and sports photography.

If you are struggling to find out which telephoto lenses you need, check out our How to Read a Canon Lens guide for further information.

Reach far away or small subjects with our new lightweight, compact telephoto zoom lens in Canon RF-S 55-210mm F5-7.1 IS STM Lens. With an image stabilizer (4.5 stops) and STM focus motor, achieve steady sharp shots across different genres when paired with an APS-C camera.

Browse telephoto lenses by mm - including the popular 200mm, 300mm and 400mm. Bestselling telephoto lenses include the EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM Lens, EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens and EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens.
