Push the limits of performance

The RF 800mm F5.6L IS USM is built to impress. From a fast F5.6 aperture and up to 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.

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.

Do it your way and take control

The RF 800mm F5.6L IS USM has a host of custom options with two focus pre-sets and a customisable AF stop button. It’s fully compatible with RF extenders and focus direction can even be reversed to match what you’re used to.
