Reach distant subjects with ease
Bring the everyday closer and fill the frame with garden wildlife at home or on the road and pack your pictures with glorious detail and impact.
Sharp, shake-free images
Thanks to a 5-stop optical Image Stabiliser, you can achieve super sharp telephoto images and movies without a tripod.
Revolutionary size and weight
Thanks to the RF mount, an f/11 aperture and Diffractive Optics, the lens contracts to 199.5 mm in length when stored and weighs only 930g.
Focus smoothly and quietly
An STM motor allows smooth, quiet AF while a Lens Control Ring gives intuitive control over settings. Pleasing bokeh is achieved thanks to a bladeless, f/11 aperture.
A revolutionary super telephoto thanks to Diffractive Optics (DO) technology
Canon was the first to commercialise Diffractive Optic (DO) technology by developing its own unique structure. Through the use of DO lens elements it is possible to make the lens compact and lightweight and control chromatic aberration. Combine that optical advantage with the inherent benefits of the wider RF mount – with faster communication speeds to the camera and high optical quality – and you have a compelling super telephoto that is light, affordable, compact and easy to carry.
